Somebiddie’s Got the Blues…

Review of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Matte Lip Tar in RX

I’ve been marathoning a lot of Parks and Rec lately and, after watching that oh-so-infamous Treat Yo Self episode, decided to go on a lil’ shopping trip. To, you know, Treat My Self…at Sephora, obviously!


And I went overboard. #ruhroh.


But it was TREAT YO SELF DAY, so that’s totally okay! (Full disclosure: Treat Yo Self Day definitely happens at least six times a month in my universe, but that doesn’t make it any less special each and every time.)


Since it’s Super Week in New York and this (incredibly nerdy and strange) Biddie is going to Comic Con (!!!), I thought it would be fun to experiment with some funky stuff. Introducing: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic’s Matte Lip Tar!


Lip Tar test tubes in Stalker and RX (with a primer and mini lip brush)

I purchased the “Blue Blood” test tube lip trio ($19) which includes a mini lip brush, lip primer, and the lip tar shades Stalker and RX. Stalker is a bluish-red and RX is straight up, real intense primary blue. Blue is TOTES all the rage right now, and with good reason. I mean, it’s only the BEST COLOR EVER! (Totally impartial assessment, I swear.) A blue lip? Pretty daring. I had to try it…


Pre-Lip Tar! Only lip balm on the lips.


Wearing the Lip Tar in RX!

I was in such a rush to try out the color that I forgot to use the primer (bummer!) but the color payoff was still SUPER intense. I ate a (family-sized) bag of corn chips afterwards and the color didn’t budge, which was awesome. It’s really lightweight and does have a matte finish, but I had a thin coat of lip balm underneath so I didn’t find it particularly drying. A little bit goes a really, really long way, too. You probably only need a chia seed amount to cover the entire mouth, so these tiny “test tubes” are gonna last me a long time.


YAY for blue lips!

This is a pretty cool color and it definitely makes a statement (maybe the statement is that I ate an entire pound of blue gummy bears, but whatever) so I don’t know if this is something I’ll be wearing regularly, but I’m really glad I’ve got this in my makeup arsenal for special occasions and parties.

So here are the fab blue makeup products I’m excited to use this season:
