Yup, i am finally doing a makeup related post 😀
I’m usually a strictly nude or clear lipgloss kinda girl but this year, i am trying to expand my usage of lip products. [Expect to see loads of lip product reviews in the coming weeks XD]
First up on my list..lip paints!! Lip paints are extremely pigmented and a little goes a super long way.
Here are the ones i am reviewing today
Pout Paint by Sleek Makeup [Thanks to VanityFashionista for getting them for me]
Lip Tar by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics [Thanks to my girl Msbonita for getting them for me]
Lip tar by OCC [Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics]
RRP: $13.50 USD | .27 FL OZ
Official Spill from OCC
“A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Meant to be mixed, Lip Tar comes in concise array of colors for a limitless selection of shades made by you!”
DIRECTIONS: Apply the tiniest bead of product with a lipbrush. I tend to mix it around on the back of my hand before applying.
Try to use less than 1/4 of the drop in the pic [yes really..tats all u need]
Overall thoughts: You can’t talk about lip paints without mentioning OCC lip tars. These have achieved cult status amongst many makeup artists and i simply had to try them! And they did not disappoint! They are VERY pigmented and the minty feel is lovely! However they are quite drying. Amazing lasting power though which is a good thing since reapplication on the go can be a bit hard [who wants to carry a lip brush around haha] There are around 30 amazing permanent shades and these are designed for mixing so the possibilities are endless!!
Sleek Pout Paint

“Pout paint is the new ultimate lip pigment that provides a blast of colour in one purse sized tube! The intensely saturated formula provides outstanding colour pay-off in just one tiny speck, and dries to a long lasting satiny finish. With a wide variety of Pout Paints to choose from you can mix up your very own unique shade using a combination of colours, or simply go for one stand out striking pop of colour.”

Overall thoughts: For those who dont know, Sleek makeup is a makeup brand from the UK. You can purchase their items in Superdrug [chain of drugstores in UK]. These are a lot less drying compared to OCC and i actually think they are more long lasting as well. The lower price point helps a lot too. So a definete YAY from me!
