I like many of you could not resist the red lip trend when it emerged. And I like many of you hesitated because finding that perfect shade of red can be a nearly impossible task. You see I’m not new to this whole trend because it’s been around before. I remember in my high school days I searched nearly every drugstore for a complimentary shade that delivered the right amount of pigment and that was flattering on my complexion. No easy task. So when the trend emerged again I knew that I was going to have to do some deep digging.
Now I’ll admit, I don’t wear red lipstick all that often. Most of the time I roll out of bed, make breakfast, get my kids ready for school and have just enough time to get myself ready and head to work. Hey, red lipstick is a little high maintenance and sometimes I’m a low maintenance gal.
But when I want to turn it up a notch, let’s face it, red lips are smokin’ hot. However if not applied properly or in the right shade they can look clownish. There’s a very fine line between the two, ladies, so choose wisely. Now when I came across Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in NSFW I immediately loved the color but I hated the consistency. The formula seemed so messy and hard to apply. Well I found out that I was applying it all WRONG. Oopsie! OCC lip tars need to be applied with an angled brush and the best part is you only need a tiny bead for full lip coverage.
If you’re not familiar with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tars then let me fill you in. OCC Lip tars apply like a gloss but can look like lipstick. They contain loads of pigment and Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E which really moisturize dry lips. And lastly these little beauties are 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free.
So what share are you wearing on your lips today?
