I wanted to share some of my Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar swatches with you. I haven’t gotten my entire collection swatched yet, but I do have a fair amount of them, so here is the first half.
First up, this is actually my favorite mix, it’s Strumpet mixed with RX. It’s vampy and awesme for Fall.
Strumpet is described as deep red/burgundy.
Rx is described as true cyan blue.
Memento is a nice light neutral shade, perfect for everyday.
Memento is described as a midtone pink/plum
This is a mixture of Butch and Demure.
Butch is described as pastel periwinkle.
Demure is described as deep purple with intense fuchsia undertones.
I actually like this sort of peach shade for a neutral lip.
Interlace is described as palest peach crème.
This is such a fun, bright shade.
Radiate is described as electric red / coral.
I wanted to show you Strumpet on its own. So lovely!
The perfect neon pink for summer! Love it!
Nylon is described as classic bubblegum pink with a neon twist.
Tarred was a difficult shade. I had trouble getting it to apply evenly. It was a bit patchy. However, it’s supposed to be used to darken colors.
Tarred is described as black.
This mixture turned out so well! It’s Queen and Cha Cha. Love it!
Queen is described as neon red / coral.
Cha Cha is described as pale sherbet orange.
I love this color. The name cracks me up!
Hoochie is described as extreme magenta.
Ahh, super bright Anime! Not for the faint of heart.
Anime is described as seriously neon pink.
This is NSFW with the edges blackened.
NSFW is described as true red.
It’s a classic red, perfect for year round wear.

After much trial and error, here are my tips for applying lip tars.
While I do find that it took me a while to get used to how to apply lip tars, now that I know how, I really love using them. I do enjoy having a versatile palette at my finger tips!
With the exception of Tarred being patchy (even after I shook it to try mixing it up before use; it still came out a mixture of clear and black), the rest of the shades had good pigmentation for me.
Which shades are your favorite in this set?

omg I need those purple colors!
Megan – PRIMP Team They are awesome! I love purples.
Gah! Every one of them looks great on you. I have 4 colors (including Memento) and they all pull orange on me.
I have a few colors, including NSFW (which is my favorite red lippie) and Memento. NSFW is the perfect red on me.
How do you mix these? Do you just put a drop of each color you want to use on a hard service and swirl them together? I tried mixing once, but it was not my most successful experiment.
so many lovely colors, and they all look great on you!!
First of all I spotted something on the bakground of Queen picture can U take a pic of that peluche the green one looks soooo cute

Yay! I’ve been waiting for your lip tar post! Thanks so much for taking the time to swatch all of these–it helps SO much to see them on your beautiful face! Now to try and narrow down my wish list….
I love all the colors here! Especially the nude ones!!!!!:)
these swatches look great, love the customized shades. I have so many lip stars but i haven’t mixed them up because I love them so much on their own! I think my favorite is Harlot.
I’m hoping to pick up some of these at the Makeup Show.
Great post! I think Strumpet is a great colour for you as well as the mix of Strumpet with Rx.
