This OCC Pro's Picks Portables - Lip Tar Test Tube x 12 Set retails for $59US or $71CAN for the Mini x 12 Set. Each tube is 1/4 the size of a full Lip Tar so the price for the 12 is the volume and price of 3 regular size Lip Tars and the brush.

Lime Crime pressed eyeshadow palette retails for $35.00US. It the end of era for Lime Crime as the D's all the current eyeshadows again for something new. The VENUS: The Grunge Palette which is coming out probably at the end of this month.
