Neon Pink Lips

In celebration of today's amazing spring weather, I decided to wear this bright pink lipstick from OCC which I purchased back in October at Sephora. This color is called "Anime" and is pretty much the brightest neon pink lipstick I own. The best way to describe an OCC lip tar is like "liquid lipstick". It comes in a tube-like packaging along with a little brush. The consistency and longevity of this lipstick is really nice but this was the only shade I really loved on my lips (the nude ones just looked to pale for my skin tone). Have you tried any of their shades? If so which one?

I first apply a small amount to the back of my hand, then use a Real Techniques detailer brush to apply it to my lips. The consistency is pretty liquidy (yet very pigmented), so it works great with a brush and it will give you a nice control of the color. It's not ideal for touch ups however, since I'd have to bring along the brush. Overall, I'm just obsessed with this color, so fun for spring! MAC's "Girl About Town" & "Candy Yum Yum" are very similar in color and I love those too. (There are also other dupes for this shade found at the drugstore by brands like Wet n Wild and Revlon.) What do you guys think of this color? XOXO

  4. I have a love/hate relationship with OCC lip tars - I love the range of colours and how pigmented they are, but I hate how fiddly they are to apply. That said, Anime is just gorgeous and looks great on you! Another shade that is pretty which you'd love is Pageant, a more purply pink, almost a deep fuchsia.

  5. It's really bright, and you are of course beautiful. But I think it appeals more to women, it's probably intimidating for men to look at. Sort of makes you look older.

  23. Hi Annie! I love the vibrant colors OCC lip tars offers. My fav is "Grandma" which is a gorgeous coral color; it would really pop on your skin tone. Tip to prevent feathering: use a clear lip liner prior such as MUFE or Sally Hansens! :) Erica

  30. I LOVE this color!! I'm actually rocking it right now. I also have "hoochie," which is a pastel purpleish tone. Its gorgeous! People always ask me where I got it.

  31. That is an amazing color! I wish I had an excuse to rock that shade though. I can't really wear that to the grocery store. I'm just a stay at home mommy blogger.

  40. Hey Annie!

    I just wanted to say that I love your youtube channel, and of course your blog!:-)
    But since you said in one of your videos that swedish is your main language, I just wonder if you have lived in Sweden for some parts of your life? Or in New York your whole life?:-)

    And does your parents live in the same country as you? :D

    You are a beautiful person and I love that you share your fitness tips, helthy recipies and so forth :D

    Lots of love

  41. On OCC web site, under the lip tars, it says that the tars are meant to be mixed together. This is a beautiful shade, but maybe you want to play with them and see if you can make your ideal "nude" for your skin tone.

  42. How is it possible to be this stunning!? lol

    Love it! Never tried this before, but will be sure to give it a go.

    Gorgeous girl.

    Keep up the amazing work, your blog rocks!

  46. AMAZING color! I am obsessed with Candy YumYum and I recently bought a bunch of lip tars are IMATS and I love them all. Annika is a really nice peach nude color that I think would look great on you. Black Dahlia is AMAZE for fall/winter... Grandma is a great coral color and Hoochie is a fun spring color. I might get Anime just b/c I love it so much on you... although I own Girl About Town and Candy YumYum. Anyway, I love it... haha. Ciao.
