Hey dolls, hope you’re all handy dandy this cold winter! I’m sorry for the delay in the ‘Anime’ lip tar review but here we go my beauties…
Lip Tars are from the brand ‘Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’. It’s an American based brand so isn’t widely available in the UK – But where there’s a will or should I say a beauty fanatic… There’s ALWAYS a way! You may be think that 8ml is not much… But a little goes a long way!
The consistency is pretty much perfect. Not runny & not thick & gloopy – it spreads on your lips very well & hassle free. One thing I LOVE about these lip tars is that they are SUPER opaque. So literally, you need the tiniest amount on your lip brush. I wouldn’t advise putting this on straight from the squeezey tube… A lip brush is a MUST! Using a brush also means that you can get a clean cut look 🙂
So, with this picture, I’ve literally brushed the lip tar across my hand as much as I could. I think you can tell just how OPAQUE this product is!
I thought I’d do this to show you just how amazing this is… The first couple of strokes have a lot of product on them. Like I said, a little goes a LONG way 🙂
The smell is kind of MINTY? I quite like it 🙂 It’s not like the MAC lip glosses or anything because it’s not sticky but got a lovely gloss to it – AMAZING right? I like to put 2 layers of Anime on just for that extra POP but one layer still looks very nice 🙂 I prefer the look of this with the FLASH – what do you think? This is what it looks like without the flash…
You can still tell it’s a HOT pink without the flash. This has definitely become my favourite hot pink lippy 🙂 The staying power of this product is very good. When I wore this out, I didn’t need to really top it up at all 🙂
I think the only thing I don’t like about this is the fact that it can STAIN your lips & pretty much anything else it comes into contact with… So you really don’t wanna get this on your clothes! This also means you gotta be careful when you’re putting it onto your lips… A steady hand always helps too 🙂
I got mine from GENIE COSMETICS for £8.99! But they’re on offer at the moment for £8.49 – great for stocking fillers 🙂 I know they also sell them at ‘Filthy Gorgeous’ in Debenhams on Oxford Street in London, but they retail at £13. However, if you’re not in a hurry I would recommend Genie Cosmetics. They’re really good & fast with their delivery 🙂 I literally got mine the day after I ordered it- FAB!
What are you thoughts on lip tars & this colour of course? Will these be on your Christmas lists to Santa?
