This week's Saturday Post is going to be a makeup haul of all the stuff I bought online and in-store during the Memorial Day Weekend. This post was supposed to go up last week, but I ended up pushing it back. Anyways, let's get on to the haul.
The first batch is some more Lip Tars from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I ordered these off their main website at their Memorial Day Weekend Sale, which was not too long after I got the Lip Tars that I had reviewed a few weeks ago (which you can check out at the link). I loved the formula and they had so many crazy colors so I couldn't resist. I picked up some already discounted $5.00 USD Lip Tars in the original squeeze tube packaging and then one in their current packaging. The colors I got were Electric Grandma (coral shade), Yaoi (hot pink shade), Authentic (bronze-copper shade), and Disintegration (mauve taupe shade). Can you guess what finish they are? Yep, they're metallic.
I don't know if I had mentioned it at some point (probably have and can't remember), but I hate pink lipstick and yet I got Yaoi. I bought it because I actually started liking hot pink lips after seeing it on Manny MUA and Jeffree Star, but I have never worn one myself so I picked this up. It's a bold color that I can get away with a lot more. You know, for the times when green lipstick might not be appropriate such as at work. I will say that whenever I wear Disintegration against my bare face, it looks kind of weird - leaning more towards looking like I have a case of cyanosis of the lips. I find that purple grays or mauve taupes can easily look like I got punched in the face, but with the right makeup (and by right makeup, I mean my too-white-for-my-skin Lorac POREfection) it looks fine. I find that colors that flatter my natural skin color don't flatter my much lighter (and whiter) foundation color and vice versa, so I have to adjust accordingly.
