Product Review: OCC Lip Tar in 'Strumpet'

After reading Nicolette's amazing post on the New York Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics store I have been itching to get my hands on one of their cult Lip Tars. I finally managed to pick one up at IMATS last weekend.  I went for 'Strumpet' as I have been looking for a bright pink with lots of red tones. I also picked up a Crown lip brush to aid application.
The first thing I thought when I started doing my lips is that this tube is going to last me for ever, you only need the smallest amount for a full colour effect. It would also be really easy to mix up custom shades with a couple of different shades.
I'm also wearing Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation in 12 Beige Rose, NARS Orgasm Illuminator, Benefit Sugarbomb Blush, Touche Eclat by Yves Saint Laurent, Jemma Kidd I-Ris Enhancer Eyeshadow and Benefit 'They're Real' Mascara

I took the Lip Tar for its first road test when I went for brunch at Ottolenghi last weekend. The colour lasted a good six hours and it was not drying, the meal being consumed in the first hour out of the six. My verdict? I can't wait to get my hands on some more lip tars, and maybe a few of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' nail polishes too?

Have you tried any of these lip tars before? What are your favourite shades?
