OCC Lip Tar combo mix experiment numero uno: Vamp Berries

Probably a but redundant to call it a combo mix experiment but MEH!

Right before the new year I bought a whole shwackload of OCC Lip Tars because they were on sale.  They've since upped the sizes, changed the tube a bit and raised the prices a tad to reflect the differences.  So I'm kind of glad I bought them when I did because at the amount I bought, that would have been a loooooot of monies extra.  I would have loved the new tips though.  Way easier for mixing.  My tubes have a slanted lip gloss end and you definitely do not want to use these right out of the tube, you will be applying too much.

When I was making this colour I used a brush that was too big when mixing and I tried my best to wipe off the excess in the pot but I still ended up using too much as you will be able to see with the feathering like a mofo.  I think I still have 3 or 4 uses out of the pot though so it's okay!

The colour I wanted was supposed to be a dark spicy reddish brown but ended up with a dark berry shade instead.  I'm just glad it didn't turn into mud so YAY!

I used a big drop of Stalker, added a small drop of Katricia, Traffic and Rx.  It was looking too purple so I added a big drop of NSFW and it was looking crazy dark so I added a big drop of Petty Beige to lighten it up.

Et voila!

The 3rd darker looking pic is the most accurate.  This was fun!  :D
