I ordered the Black Dahlia and Lydia lip tars, which also came with the cutest mini lip brush. These two colors are the quintessential fall lip color, especially Black Dahlia. Each lip tar retails for $16 for .33 oz of product. I have a more in-depth review of OCC lip tars here (it's a video review), along with swatches of all the colors I own. These are actually the first two lip tars I've gotten in the new lip tar packaging, too. I must say, I really love this new packaging. It's so much better to use!
Black Dahlia is described as a "blackest blackened red" while Lydia is described as "dark room plum". For Black Dahlia, I feel like it is more of a berry color than red. In the swatch below, it reminds me a lot of MAC's Rebel lipstick. Also, this lip tar is EXTREMELY versatile! I can think of so many different uses for it, some of which I plan on showing off next week. It's very buildable, so it can be as sheer or as opaque as your heart desires. Lydia is a lot darker than expected, but since I'm so pale, it seems darker on me. If you are of a medium to medium-dark skintone, Lydia would be a great everyday color.
Overall, I'm completely in love with these two lip tars. If you wanted something from the Heroine collection, then I definitely recommend Black Dahlia for sure, and Lydia if you're feeling spicy. Have you picked up anything from this collection?
