A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish.
Never have I come across a lip product such as OCC’s Lip Tars. I have read so many awesome reviews on them that I just had to have them myself. The gloss comes in a little tube with a slanted tip which can be directly applied onto your lips but in my opinion this is best applied with a brush for extreme precision. Also, you want to start off with a tiny amount of product. And when I say tiny, I literally mean the size of this dot but even that might be a little too much! The tars are extremely pigmented that only a small amount is needed just as their website states “a little goes a very, very long way”.
The consistency and look of the tars kind of reminds me of artist paint and essentially that is what we are doing; painting our lips. The product does go on very wet but it is quick to dry as long as you don’t use a lot of it. I actually found it to be a little too dry for my liking so I layered a clear lip gloss on top and the results were beautiful.
Did I mention that they smell really good too? One of the ingredients is peppermint so it’ll leave your lips smelling nice and fresh. OCC is also known for using 100% Vegan and cruelty free ingredients and is also free of parabens and harsh preservatives which is a bonus in our books!
As far as staying power goes it does last pretty long but be careful not to smudge your lips because you’ll end up with a stained mess. I did find that it was a little hard to rub off with a plain tissue so you’ll probably want to use a makeup wipe for removal. It’d be wise to keep a few travel wipes in your purse just in case you run into a little accident.
Overall Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic’s Lip Tars are a thumbs up. These cute little glosses come in 24 different colors to choose from.
