Obsessive Complusive Cosmetics Lip Tar Test Tubes

I started a short summer internship at an organic baby clothing company a few weeks ago. Prior to starting, I had written a few blog posts and had them saved up so that I could "update" my blog in a timely matter. Last week I noticed that I was down to my last saved blog post which could only mean one thing, I needed to buy some new products to review :)
Today I have for you 2 out of the 3 OCC Lip Tar Sets that were just released at Sephora.  I bought the Champagne and Pink lip tar sets and ended up skipping the 3rd set because it contained a crazy blue lip tar that I could never see myself wearing. These sets each contain three mini lip tars which can be worn alone but are designed to be mixed together. Each set retails for $19.50. Also, in case you weren't aware, all products produced by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics are cruelty-free and PETA-certified as 100% vegan.

Champagne Shores Set colors from L - R:
- 0.08 oz Lip Tar Primer 
- 0.08 oz Test Tube: Metallic in Pris (champagne metallic) 
- 0.08 oz Test Tube: Matte in Trollop (pinked coral) 
- #010S Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush 

Pink Prism Set colors from L - R:
- 0.08 oz Lip Tar Primer 
- 0.08 oz Test Tube: Matte in Lovecraft (pink/lilac metallic) 
- 0.08 oz Test Tube: Matte in Pretty Boy (super rich fuchsia) 
- #010S Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush 

* I loved both of the colors in the Pink Prism set and the matte coral color from the Champagne set however the metallic shade (Pris) just seemed so unwearable to me. The formula for both of the metallic colors was very thin and did not cover well. In addition to that the metallic colors both left behind a huge cluster of glitter. The matte shades on the other hand were great. They were very pigmented and both looked gorgeous on my lips.These are good tester sets if you don't own any OCC lip tars but I would recommend passing on them and just purchasing one color from the collection that you really love.

If you are interested in purchasing your own OCC Lip Tar Test Tubes set, all three variations are available at Sephora. Click the link for more details: OCC Cosmetics
