My OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) Lip Tar has finally arrived. I've read so many things about this product, and had to try it for myself. It shipped to me so quickly, thankfully, because I could wait to get my hands on it! Long story short - I love the color but kinda hate the consistency. Femme is a very muted pink color, almost a blue pink. The tar is drying to your lips, which causes it to crease and feather.
Think of lip tar as a paint. I applied it with a very skinny lip brush, and only used a tiny dot of product. Believe me, that's all you need. It also dries quickly, so try to apply and blend quickly. It was a bit more matte than I expected, so I put a touch of Vaseline over it for a little shine. It looks pretty and fresh for about an hour, until I started getting those horrible crease lines. I wiped it off with some water, and tried to reapply. The same thing happened again! The lasting factor on this product was crap for me.
I looked on OCC's website, and one of the FAQs is "Lip Tar appears to feather or bleed on my lips. What am I doing wrong?" The site basically says that you are applying too much product to your lips, and only need a small amount. I did just that but still got the unsightly feathering. UGH! I'm sad, because I had high hopes for this and it looks so good on other people! Any tips on how to make this product work better?
Hope you guys have a great weekend =)
