Success! I Mixed My Own Hot Pink Lipstick with OCC Lip Tars.

Hot pink lipstick has been dancing around in my head lately. Like I really, really, want to buy one.

Sadly for me, there’s no room for hot pink lipstick in my strict Holiday budget this month. So what’s a girl to do? Mix what she already owns, that’s what.  Remember my OCC lip tars from IMATS?  Here they are again.

I thought to myself, “if I mixed these, I could make some epic hot pink lips.”

And that’s exactly what I did.

Of course, just like all OCC lip tars, my “new” lipstick is also the world’s longest wearing lipstick, evar.

Do You Wear Hot Pink Lips, or Is It Too Bright for Your Taste?

  • that’s definitely a hawt hot pink! =) nice job! i want to try these OCC lip tars but have been trying to control myself since i know that one tube isn’t enough. >o<"

    • What do you have your eyes on? You gotta have Demure for sure! 🙂

  • LOVE the shade you came up with. I gotta get my hands on these lip tars!

    • YAY! You definitely need some. 🙂 Everyone does.

  • Make it work. It looks fab on you.

  • Very pretty! I need more liptars to do some mixing, I only have one (Demure actually!) right now.

    • They mix so well! Definitely try to get some more. 😉

  • WOW that colour is amazing!!!! You know I’ve never tried lip tars – do they dry out your lips?

    • It dries completely to a stain and tightens, so it isn’t the most moisturizing formula for a lipstick. On the upside, they last ALL DAY.

  • I like Demure on its own. But the combo looks fantastic too. I have a similar shade to that combo in the form of Topshop Lipstick in Rosa.

    • Oooh sweet! I’d love to get a lipstick in this same shade, but we don’t get Topshop here.

  • Rae

    !! Lovely. Too bright for me, but it looks amazing on your complexion!

    • It would look just as great on you, Rae!

  • That looks really great on you! =) good job. I do wear bright pink lips, I think they’re really hot – I like to wear Girl About Town (ref. your want-list), I think it’s a wonderful shade that wears really well, too! And Rebel. 😀

    • Girl About Town and Rebel — such great picks! I want both of those for myself, too! 🙂

  • Love, love, LOVE! You do have the most excellent complexion for electric shades. Good mixin’!

  • Nice. I loved Memento when you posted about it before but I love the mix. The two colours together really soften the look but yet is electrifying. 🙂
