Yesterday The Powder Group presented their first TPG Pop-Up Shop at the new home for Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics! I had been waiting for OCC to open their doors and I have not made it to the Makeup Show, so I went there for a preview. There were a variety of brands available for sale at discounted prices including TPG makeup bags, Stila and of course OCC. James Vincent, who is a MAJOR (!), in the makeup world was there and also the founder of OCC, David Klasfeld. I took the opportunity to finally get my hands on the oh-so-popular Lip Tars. Can I say…..they are they most highly, crazily pigmented lip products eva!!!! They come in these cute tubes that look kinda small, but when I say a drop of the Lip Tar is too much–you know what I am talking about! They could literally last a lifetime. They may actually stain the skin, it’s like pure pigment in a tube, and the formula is 100% vegan. I picked up Uber, which is a cool, creamy, milk chocolate with some grey mixed in. I am always on the lookout for the perfect nude lip. The formula is fantastic, not sticky, super smooth, highly pigmented and there is a hint of peppermint. I wore Uber with some M.A.C. Clear Lipglass, and I liked it! I definitely have to go back and get Katricia (a sick purple!!!), Plum and the Clear Lip Tar. I also picked up one of the loose pigments in Auric. Lately I have been on the hunt for gold eyeshadows. I have bronzes, champagnes and taupes but surprisingly no true golds. Again Auric is light to medium gold – very pretty, very finely milled and densely pigmented. Love it! I will definitely have to work this into my Christmas looks!
I was really glad for this Pop-Up and I hope they continue it throughout the year. And I definitely need to make it to the Makeup Show!
