Dial- Up Pen Makeup Containers

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!*

For those of you who have bought the OCC Lip Tars, you may have noticed that the tubes dribble and drool color in the caps, unless you were lucky enough to get the doe foot tip which leaves a clean cap.

I am not really complaining but I know this can be bothersome. The tubes contain an ample amount for the non-makeup artist, finishing one tube would take awhile since they are so pigmented. In fact, you could split a tube with a friend.

The Pen

I bought at DIY Cosmetics the Dial Up Sponge Tip pen and the Dial Up Brush Tip pen. They are both made of a high quality type of plastic, not the cheap drugstore type. These are the same as the high end type pens that you see some glosses housed in. Both come in packs of 10 for about $6.50USD. If ten isn't enough for you, you can always buy 100 for $44.90USD or 1000 for $373.70USD. I did split my Lip Tars with a friend. (Aren't I sweet! )

One tube will fill two pens fully and have some leftover in the tube. Filling it was easy, just squeeze and let it fill up to the line on the rim. Snapping the brush or sponge tip on took some work but not too much where you needed extra tools, just a bit of muscle power for it to click in completely, other than that it was easy and didn't make a mess. But I suggest to lay a paper towel or something on the table or area you are using just to be on the safe side.

The Filled Pens

Filled and ready to go! I just had to click the pen enough to get that initial color on the brush and sponge. This is where I went slowly. It does take, what feels like, an infinite amount of clicks for the color to appear but it does come to the top. Slow is better because you won't overflow the tip. Just stop when that initial color comes out and swipe it onto a palette, little jar, mixing pan, or the back of your hand. If it isn't enough, just click it once more. I wouldn't apply the color from the applicator straight onto your face because it will be too much, use a separate brush to apply. The dial up containers are just an easier way to store the Lip Tars, not for application purposes.
