OCC Lip Tars in "Stalker" & "Grandma": Review and Swatches

Hiya folks! I have a couple more lip tars from the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro's Pick v1.0 set to show you. To see my reviews for both "Stalker" and "Grandma", click......

"Stalker" is a "true blue based red". It is very pigmented and rich, though it takes time to put on nicely as it will look sloppy if not applied carefully.
"Grandma" is described as a "true coral". I would say it leans slightly orange with a subtle shimmer. Alone it tends to emphasize the lines of the lips so it is more of a blending color (to be blended with other lip tars).
Here I mixed the two to get a "custom" color. I don't quite know how to describe the result; it is sort of a muted rosy plum? Hard to say......
The formula and longevity of these are mediocre. I don't quite like the tacky feel on my lips and they aren't particularly moisturizing or staining. However, all is solved because last time, Lulubelle commented on how there is a DIY for turning lip tars into lip balms and I tried it! It worked amazingly! I will do a post on it this week. So stay tuned!
