“Sweet Divinity” started with Katricia and NSFW, mix it up!

Here’s the last set of four shades! :)

“Sweet Divinity”


Finished!


“Sweet Divinity”

“Sweetness”


“Sweetness” started with Pageant and NSFW


Added Rx!


Finished!


“Sweetness”

“Lilac Lovely”


“Lilac Lovely” started with Katricia and NSFW


Finished!


“Lilac Lovely”

Note: “Lilac Lovely” is too cool-toned and too purple for me, but I thought it was a nice variation on Katricia. I would likely add Pageant and a bit of Feathered to lighten it up.

“Shell Coral”


“Shell Coral” started with Grandma, Pageant, and Feathered


Mix it up!


Finished!


“Shell Coral”

  29. Vness_12

    Lilac Lovely is on FIYAH!!!! LoL I love it.

  30. Gorgeous! I might pick up a few of these at IMATS this weekend.

  31. Lucy

    I still prefer lipsticks. But the Lip Tars must be a blast to play with. Do you really think they’re worth the money to just play around?I don’t know if they come with containers to mix them in. I just saw them here but really haven’t read about them.

    • They’re definitely fun to play around with! I don’t think I’d buy ‘em all if you’re on a tighter budget, but maybe a few to have fun with, sure. They don’t come with any containers (I bought mine on eBay a long time ago, just search for 5 gram container).

    ok another update
    i love them!!!!!
    they are very smooth and feel good on your lips
    .the oil base i have gotten used to already.. i was applying too much..
    after playing for a while i was using too much product..you only need a dot of each when mixing or you will be wasting it
    also, you need very little for application.. wore it out yesterday and it lasted a long time before i needed to re-appl

    If anybody wants to swap some lip tar samples, please let me know, I have Vintage and Melange that I can swap for. I’m looking for Hush and Conquest sample jars. I’m on MUA as “Carmen”. You can contact me there. Hope this is ok to post, Christine…I can only afford a couple and want to expand my collection to mix.

  34. Sher

    Shell Coral looks super similar to Chris & Tell! :)

  35. Hey Christine, thought you’d be interested in my attempt to make MAC colors with the OCC Lip Tars: http://bloomingartistry.blogspot.com/2010_11_01_archive.html

    Let me know what you think!

  36. ann

    i love your lovely lilac combo. who knew purple with red would make lavender. i just recently bought katricia and feathered, hoping to get that exactly same color you made with nsfw and katricia. i haven’t received my package yet as i just placed order yesterday but do you think it will make that lovely lilac color you made?

  37. Angela

    I love seeing what colors you’ve made!

  38. peachblow

    I’m a tiny bit confused about how Lilac Lovely came to be! I have both of those colors and I don’t understand how the resulting mix is a paler white-based pastel, when Katricia is a warm purple and NSFW is red. Did you add any Feathered into the mix? Or maybe it’s just a trick of the light? Mixing any NSFW at all into Katricia here at home results in a darker and warmer purple.

    Love the photos!!
