While I was at IMATS Pro Night last Friday, I was very kindly gifted the lip tars from the upcoming Spring 2014 Plastic Passion Collection. There are also six nail polishes coming out in the collection. There were also accompanying loose color concentrates in the display but I don't believe they are part of the Plastic Passion Collection. Today I'll be swatching the lip tars that come in the collection.
I've got a lot of pictures so I'll be putting the information under a cut. Feel free to click to see all the information!
Where to purchase: Sephora.com and OCCmakeup.com starting 2/1, in Sephora stores 2/18.
Price: $18.00 for .33 oz/10 mL
Do they test on animals?: The company does not and in fact all their products are vegan.
Packaging: The lip tars come in a plastic squeezy tube with a nozzle tip. They've recently undergone a packaging change and I was told that the new packaging (present on four of the lip tars in this collection) will be permanent.
The front of the packaging debuts their new logo and indicates the finish. All the nonshimmery lip tars have been denoted as matte to differentiate them from the metallic and stained glosses.
The back of the lip tar is very different and is suited for newer customers/consumers who may feel tempted to apply the lip tar like a regular lipgloss. Instead of the ingredient list, there is information about what a lip tar is and how to use it. The ingredient list is now printed on the insert included in the pouch.
Now onto the swatches!
All the lip tars have been applied using the lip brush. All photographs have been taken in natural daylight with no flash. I had to color correct Pool Boy but other than that, there haven't been any modifications to the colors.
Hollywood: "Beige/gold shimmer" This is the warmer counterpart to the other metallic lip tar in the collection, Pleasure Model. It's not a color I would wear on its own because it's difficult to build to opacity but it'll make a great layering color.
Kimber: "Neon orange coral" There's a bit of translucency with this shade that lends its opacity to be between a stained gloss and a regular occ lip tar. It really makes me think of a bright highlighter orange.
Pool Boy: "Aquatic blue" Welp this is one hell of a blue. This is a bright cyan blue that is very nearly opaque. I personally don't own the shade to compare to but if you're looking for Lime Crime's No She Didn't, you may like this color. If you own RX and Feathered, I'm sure you could mix the two to get Pool Boy.
In conclusion, get thee Rollergirl and rock that purple!!
