Swatches & Review: High Voltage Lip Whips

High Voltage Cosmetics makes more than just eyeshadows. These are lip whips: very opaque glosses in a squeeze tube. They have a slight mint scent and are non-sticky. I love that a little bit goes a long way with these – you really have to apply them with a lip brush (especially the darker shades). The colors are gorgeous and the formula is so silky smooth. Sadly, her ingredient supplier has discontinued some of the key ingredients in these, so Jasmine will be phasing these out. But not to worry! She has several left, and she is always creating new things that I cannot wait to try. Ok, on to the swatches! (Sorry for the messy towel background…that was my swatching towel, and some pigments got on it.)

    These remind me of the OCC Lip Tars- have you tried them? Might be an alternative if these are getting discontinued.

    I have tried the OCC lip tars. I have all of the original colors, and I honestly don’t like them at all. These have shimmer and shine, and are just way better in general.

    These look really similar to the OCC Lip Tars – are they?

    I suppose they are somewhat, but not really. I have all of the original OCC lip tars, and those have no shimmer. Lip Whips have shimmer, and are of much better quality in my personal opinion. I was so hyped up about the lip tars, and so sadly disappointed when I tried them on my lips. This was not the case for the lip whips.
