I really love the brand OCC(short for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). They're lip tars are absolutely stellar, and if you've never used them, get yourself to the nearest Sephora, and check them out! At $18 a piece, they last well over a year, and you only need a drop(really!). They're a very highly pigmented makeup, and stay on all day long.
They aren't sticky like you would imagine, but a warning I do have is that if you have a habit of touching your lips a lot, lip tars may not be the right choice. When out and about, not near any makeup wipes, if the product gets on your skin, you can expect it to be there for a while.

So today was an incredibly long day. I'm sure you don't care to know all of the boring details, but I'll tell you anyway. My husband was called in last minute, and has been at work for 10 hours, and won't be home for another two and a half. This left me to do more packing(we move in 6 days) and errands that I won't have time to do before Monday. This left me in the very dangerous position of having to go to Target. By. My. Self.
If you're as addicted to Target as I, you would know that that's a very dangerous position to be put in. So, per protocol, I had to check out the makeup to see if there was anything new.
As I casually browse the aisle, I see nothing of interest and begin to slunk away, tail between my legs. Wait, what is that shiny thing? A wild NYX Antwerp appears! And it was the last one! What am I to do but put it in my cart to take it out of it's lonely misery and give it a loving home.
Please excuse the orangey lighting, the sun was out in full force, and my battlestation lights won't be up until we move. Until then, here we go! Using my brand new Amazonian Clay Foundation, Kat Von D Concealer, ELF Tone Correcting Powder, and Coastal Scents Bronzer for contour, we begin!
As you can see, the key to this look is just blend, blend, blend! Using Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer, I began with the shade "Martinique" from the new Sephora Palette "In The Tropics". Now as I mentioned in my January Haul post, I'm not normally a fan of Sephora shadows, but I suspect they used a new recipe on these, because they're ultra pigmented, soft, and very smooth.
Moving on, I used "Bermuda" on the base of my eyes and blended "Grenada" in my outer crease. These shadows had a harder time blending than I originally suspected, but are easily worth the $26 for the palette.
Keep a close eye on my page over the next few days as I will be doing a giveaway very soon! Make sure you're subscribed to my page to hear more rules about the giveaway!
