So glad that my very first time as spree organiser went smoothly. The package was shipped out of NY on 1 July and today is 8 July, so it took about ten days from start to receipt of the package. And meanwhile, the interest for the OCC Lip Tars have been mounting, and I feel confident enough to open possibly two more batches! The link and info will be at the end of this entry.
I bought 3 lip tars for myself, while the rest will be on their way to their respective owners!
Shall let the pictures do the talking!
And I know you want to see actual lip swatches, so here goes:
*** I swatched everything with my finger. No brush, no lip liner, so please pardon any wonky lines. ***
Hush -- Perfect nude, and to lighten the brighter colors. I don't find it soooo nude til I look pale and deadly. If you are into nude lippies, you NEED this. Yes, Clara, you need Hush! :)
Momento - Coquettish Pink/ Plum, according to the OCC site. Not too bright, but definitely very pigmented and gives real pop of color. For those afraid of colors but want to try out something brighter within the safety zone, try Momento.
Pageant - this is a lot brighter and dramatic. The description is Beauty Queen FUSCHIA, and you get FUSCHIA! Can be easily toned down with Hush.
And some of you asked about mixing the colors, so I tried a bit:
And if you are curious, does Pageant look like Anime?? Anime is supposed to be vivid and NEON pink. I say Anime has that blue tinge that makes it neon and brighter than Pageant... but my pictures cannot capture the difference!! Boo.
And have you seen Kandee Johnson's perfect hot pinkl lips tutorial? She showed how to do gradient lips to make them look fuller. So I tried it out while doing all the swatches. I dabbed some Hush in the centre of my lips! Ta Da!
I highly recommend these lip tars.
