Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set and Mini x 12 Set: Swatches & Review


Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set and Mini x 12 Set

Retails for $20US or $25CAN for the Mini x 4 Set and $58US or $69CAN for the Mini x 12 Set. Each tube is 1/4 the size of a full Lip Tar so the price for the mini x4 is practically the size and price of one Lip Tar. The same for the mini X 12 is the volume and price of 3 regular size Lip Tars. So what you getting is a trial size for each shade which is great consider how little of the product you actually use.

Product & Colour
The OCC original formula matte Lip Tars are all strongly pigmented and dry down to a matte finish on the lips. I only have a slight problem with Divine clinging to dry patches on the lips but i was not that notable. Black Dahlia is a semi opaque but even to apply stain to the lips.

Memento is a warm tone pink neutral with a matte finish
NSFW is a classic balanced red with a matte finish
Anime vibrant neon pink/magenta with a matte finish
Black Dahlia is deep wine red with a matte finish

Clear which is just the base of the lip tars formula.

Divine is a that plastic pink flamingo with a matte finish ones it dries down
Clockwork is a terracotta orange with a matte finish
Psycho is a bright orange tomato red with a matte finish
Stalker is a cool tone saturated red with a matte finish      
Strumpet Deep red-burgundy with a matte finish

The OCC Metallic Lip Tars are a high shine formula. Pris was the most problematic beause of it sheer base and metlic finish, this is one I recommend layer over another shade to an interesting effect. Lovecraft was a touch running in consistency but when applies dries down just fine but it never seems to get opaque. Yaoi and Electric Grandma you can get opaque with a tone of shimmer. Super NSFW and Authentic have a divine finish and wear time.


Pris is a ivory metallic neutral 
Lovecraft is a light pink/lilac with a metallic finish
Yaoi is a bright fuchsia pink with a silver metallic finish
Super NSFW is a balanced red with gold particles with a metallic finish
Electric Grandma is a bright orange/coral with a gold metallic finish
Authentic copper/bronzer with a metallic finish


Wear: All the mattes i get up to 12 hours wear with care. Divine i found to wear 8 hours but that still pretty long.

Sadly the same 4 hour wear for both Yaoi, Lovecraft, and Electric Grandma as the product did to flake off my lips in a strange sort of way (it was rather a hot mess the was distracting to other before I noticed). Pris was 2 hours on it's own. Super NSFW and Authentic last 8 hours on me because of the size of the metallic particles was smaller

Packaging: Simple clear squeeze tube that is close 1/2 the size of the original (these are only about 3/4 full with product). They come with 2 versions of the #010S Precision Lip Brush with the mini version in both small handle wise and brush head.

The pouches are clear and have pockets for the lip tars and brush to stay in. And both have a post card style inlay.

Verdict
Grab them in store! Also they have sold out online and for me I own a number of lips tars but there where all new shade to me except Yaoi, Super NSFW, and Electric Grandma so this was a great for me as it has shades I like to have but not really in full size. ;)
