I’m super excited about this week for 5 Days of! I currently own 5 Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tars so they fit in perfectly! Today I’m showing you Grandma, a creamy coral. Keep reading to see swatches, on my lips, & my thoughts!
How to Apply: I can’t imagine using anything other than a lip brush. Because you only need a pintpoint amount, you need something with lots of control. Even for the lip stain type look I recommend a brush for even distribution. This is one of the few lip colors I trust to apply in the corners without a lipliner because it doesn’t smudge around or travel. I first line my lip with the color then pull it to the center. The opposite works just as well.
I seriously have to apologize for my swatches, I could NOT get my camera to cooperate. This is coming off more orange than it actually is & it has quite a bit more pink to it. I just tried & tried & couldn’t make this work. I tried color correcting them but imagine them a bit more pink pretty please?
Color & Wear: This is definitely a fun color but not something I’d wear everyday. I think this would be a great mixer to spring/summer up a lip color! OCC describes Grandma as a “clean, classic coral” & I think that is spot on!
If your lips are dry, I recommend exfoliating then applying a balm. Let that sink into your lips & then blot it off. Apply your OCC Lip Tar a tiny bit at a time. Less is more & it is ultra-buildable. I love the idea of this shade with heavy mascara & liner this spring for a retro feel. I feel like this is a tangerine based coral.
Purchase: I bought mine from Sephora in a set but this shade is available on its own. OCC Lip Tars retail for $16.00 each. You can also purchase them from the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics website directly.
