And so here we are again. Another tube of OCC's Lip Tar, another review. If you read my review of my first Lip Tar Nylon then you know that I think they are pretty neat-o products. Lip Tars are highly pigmented liquid lipsticks that can be mixed with other colors to create a totally unique shade. Nylon whet my appetite for more and so I got another one. This time in Queen.
Queen is described as a "neon red coral". The color leans heavily towards the reddish-pink side. Like all Lip Tars, it has a faint peppermint smell, but no discernible taste, and settles down to an opaque matte/semi-matte finish after applied.
Because of its intense color payoff, only a small dot (literally) would be required to lacquer your entire pout. It spreads easily with a finger or brush and is incredibly long-wearing.
Even after rubbing my finger vigorously with a cosmetic wipe, Queen proved to be a royal pain to try and depose - a true testament to its staying power and the strength of its pigmentation.
I have some plans for Queen for the upcoming spring. I think I may mix her with a muted orange lipstick or wear her in her original glory with the floral yellow dress I've been anxious to rock. Either which way, I know the Queen and I are going to have fun together.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Queen Lip Tar can be found at Sephora and Beauty.com, and retails for $16.
