Swatched on my hand. A bright, watermelon pink, it's a little brighter than the shade I was originally after, although I like it a lot. If I buy any more Lip Tars, my next one will be a beige neutral (can't decide between the taupe Uber or beige Petty Beige) to dull down the ones I have.
In order to gauge the relativeness brightness and pinkness of Trollop, here's Anime (left) and Trollop (right). Anime is the brightest and pinkest lip colour I own.
Trollop applied. It's a lovely colour and like all the OCC Lip Tars I've tried reads true to tube, even on my strange mauve lips. The Lip Tar formulation is not very forgiving of dry lips though, and I do find I need to take very good care of mine with balm before and after wearing a Lip Tar. I use the trick of lining outside my lipline with a cream/flesh pencil before applying the Lip Tar to prevent bleeding or feathering.
The colour reminds me of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture #17 Rose Dahlia I bought the christmas before last, but without the YSL fragrance. Although it's more hassle to apply than a traditional lipstick, I prefer the OCC in this case.
