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 Vintage, a sexpot red. 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.
Color & Wear: This is a deep red in the tube, almost scary. Once applied, it is much more wearable with a brightness not seen in the tube at all. OCC describes Vintage as a “Deep true burgandy” & although that is true, there is definitely some fire here.
The wear on this is superb. I have worn it both as a light “stain” & to full opacity. This is one of the few red shades I feel comfortable wearing while eating dinner in public after it sets up a bit. 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. Perfect party lip.
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.
