OCC Lip Tar – gloss
Besides mixing my lip tars, I enjoy making customized lip glosses with them as well!
Seriously.. they cost $16 a pop, but i’ve had mine for about two or three years now and I still have all my tubes.
Not one is empty!
The proof? I still have the old tubes with a thick applicator and they look SERIOUSLY roughed up.
I apologize in advance for the flash pictures, but the lighting is driving me mad around heere!
What we’ll need:
- Clear gloss
- A lip tar (or the Sleek pout paints)
- Optional: cosmetic grade glitter (non toxic)
- Optional: cosmetic pigment (also non toxic)
So I got myself a random lipgloss:
Rounded up some lip tars:
Hey I warned you!
They got a looot of loving!
Then some glitters and a Gosh pigment:
I started off by adding some Grandma lip tar to my gloss with a spatula (you can use a knife too, just let the product drip from the tip)
The stopper might make the tar unable to pass through, if that’s the case just push it in gently with the gloss applicator!
Add as much lip tar as you like! You can make it very sheer, or really opaque.
I chose pretty opaque. ^_^
This is what I got:
Then I added some glitter!
But I wasn’t satisfied with the big chunks of glitter so I added some gold pigment from Gosh as well!
The Gosh pigment added a pretty sparkle but also made my gloss more coral than pink:
Which is why I finished up with some red added to it and gooot..
I’m pretty pleased with the way it turned out, i’d wear this!
