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 Pretty Boy, a freakin fantastic fuchsia. 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
After 1-2 thin layers it is easily opaque. I didn’t do a “stain” photo today because this shade is honestly so pigmented I couldn’t get a stain to NOT look opaque!
Color & Wear: I love this shade so very much. I can totally see myself rocking this all spring & summer which is when I usually wear bold pink lips. OCC describes Pretty Boy as a “Super-rich Fuchsia” & that is definitely a good description. This blue toned fuchsia is simply full of win.
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 because it isn’t as neon as some of the other pinks. I now need a neon pink now though…successful product OCC.
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.
