How to create your own lipstick using OCC Lip Tars!

I like creating different things and one thing I love creating is lipsticks! I bought quite a lot of OCC Lip Tars recently and have been playing about with them. To those who don't know much about lip tars, they are designed so that you can mix them. They are a very versatile product as you can either wear them on their own or create your own unique colours. 

Today I'm going to be showing you how to create your own bright pink coral lipstick!

Here's what you will need...

You will need OCC Lip Tars in the following colours; Feathered, Divine and Anime.
You will also need a container with a screw top lid and a Q-tip. If you don't have a container like mine then any container will be fine just as long as it's got a tight fastening lid. If you also don't own Q-tips then a cocktail stick will work just as well.

Here are close-ups of the OCC Lip Tars...

This is feathered. A pure white colour.

This is Divine. A light coral colour.

This is Anime. A bright neon pink colour.

Here are the swatches of the lip tars...

From left to right; Feathered, Divine, Anime. 

Now you've seen the colour of the lip tars, let's start creating the lovely bright pink coral colour! Just follow my easy peezy steps!

1.) Squeeze a bit of Anime in the container. Use a good amount of Anime as this is the base to the lipstick.

2.) Add a small amount of Divine into the container.

3.) Then add a small amount of Feathered to the container.

4.) Mix a little bit. You'll start getting a swirly marble effect.

5.) Keep mixing until you are left with one single colour. 

And there you go! You're very own bright pink coral lipstick, handmade with love!

And here's the swatch...

This picture does not do this lipstick any justice, It's a lot brighter in the flesh but nevertheless, it's a beaut of a colour! A good combination of bright pink and coral.

I love OCC Lip Tars, they are probably the most pigmented lip products that I own! And they are also £8.99 which isn't too bad considering you only have to use the tiniest amount ever. When you use these on their own you literally have to use an amount the size of a pin-head!
These also have a peppermint smell to them so if you're not into that then these probably aren't for you.

Where to buy; OCCLove Make-Up and themakeupartistboutique

I love these, the question is, do you?
