Should you ever get the sudden urge to wear a plummy mauve matte lip on a Friday night, don’t over-think it. Just GO WITH IT!
Aw, come on! Why not? It’s only makeup. If it doesn’t work out, you can always wipe it off.
Heck, and you never know what’ll work out. Sometimes it’s the products you least expect that end up being holy grail. Maybe Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Sebastian ($18) will be a perfect fit for you.
I didn’t know what to expect, but I liked the swatch, so trying it on my lips seemed like the next logical step.
Granted, the reason I liked the swatch was because it reminded me of a rug I want to get for my office, but still… Details, details.
As soon as I tried it on, I was like, “Sweet! Not nearly as cray as I thought it would be.”
Well…it looks a little cray, but I actually expected it to look even more cray (crayer?).
It’ll be perfect for scaring my neighbors!
Sebastian is one of six intriguing Lip Tars in the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Moderncraft collection for fall, the inspiration for which was 1920s Berlin.
Sounds a little like something Illamasqua might do, yeah? In fact, some of the colors even remind me of Illamasqua, which might be why I like them so much.
Four of the shades are in the regular Lip Tar formulation (so pigmented, and they last all day long), and two are Lip Tar Stained Glosses (sheer and lightweight, with a three-hour wear time). All of them have a lovely, light minty flavor and fragrance that fades fast.
Popping any one of these on your lips with cat eyes is a surefire way to kick your look into fall.
Look for the Moderncraft Lip Tar collection online now and at Sephora stores. Each one is $18.
