Last week I received an order from Sephora. They had placed some new stuff in their sale section so as I was getting what I really was meaning to order I took a look at the sale section and seen that the OCC Test Tube 12X Pro Picks set was marked down even more. It was $60 before and marked down yet again to $29. I have a few liptars and since a small amount goes a very long way a test tube which is smaller than a full size product would be plenty of product. I thought this would be a great thing for my kit too. What I like about Liptars are that they were designed to be mixed so you could customize your own color. They're also great for lip art. They come in different formulas such as Matte, Metallic, Stained Gloss and so on. I don't care for the Stained Gloss formula. This set is mostly matte with two metallic shades. It also came with a full size lip brush and I love their lip brush it's the best I have and all I use.
Interlace: Matte pale nude peach
Zhora: Metallic yellow toned peach with pink shimmer

Sebastian: Matte medium grey
Iced: Metallic frosted white
I didn't expect to like as many colors in this as I do like I said it was more for my kit. However I'm so beyond impressed. The shades I thought I wouldn't like I love and the shades I thought I'd really like I'm not crazy about.
My favorite colors are:
Colors I'm not fond of:
The others I've not made up my mind on just yet. I will say that while most of these are matte they don't act like it nor look like it all that much. They tend to stay glossy. Which I don't mind. If you're wanting that though you may want to try this in a store and go from there. Like any product and any line you will get some duds. This is no different. There are some that I feel are a little less quality than the others. All in all though this is a hit. This particular set is no longer available on Sephora but they always have sets out some full sized and some test tube size. Full sized is .33 oz and Test Tube is .08 oz. Remember a little goes a very long way. Full size can be bought individually for $18. I don't believe Test Tubes are available individually only in sets.
