Ooh la la OCC lip tar

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Here is a post to put some colour in your day - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tars!

I have been meaning to post about these for yonks but kept forgetting so here it is finally. I have been wanting to get some OCC lip tars for aggggges but I was never sure which colours to get and seeing as they are a bit tricky to get in Australia I never really got around to it. So when I discovered through Ariel's blog a place to buy samples sizes I knew I had to get some too!

I ended up getting samples of 8 different colours which cost US$20 + postage.

Top row: feathered, conquest, hush, memento
Bottom row: chacha, divine, grandma, anime

Seriously these are amazing. I love them! As everyone says they are insanely pigmented and come in such an amazing range of gorgeous colours (I really want some of their new shades now). These samples are a great way of trying them out especially as I had no clue which ones I wanted and didn't want to fork out heaps of money for a whole tube of something I wouldn't use. It doesn't look like there is much in the samples but as I said they are so pigmented you need the teeniest amount.

I have read some reviews which said they are drying and I would have to agree. I get pretty dry lips so I have to make sure my lips are in good condition to wear these. I also pile on the lip balm and let it soak in before applying too. They have peppermint oil in them which feels nice and makes them smell yummy.
I love the whole idea of mixing the different colours too. I haven't been too experimental yet but I'm excited by all the possibilities.

You can get your own samples from Clara, just email her at She is so lovely and provides great service I definitely recommend her. 

I'll leave you with a piccy of chacha. It's my favourite at the moment. I love wearing it with mac peaches blush and tons of mascara, Great for the warmer weather!

I made a very naughty Dior purchase which I shouldn't have made seeing as I'm saving but I'm itching to share it so keep an eye out for that post coming soon!
