My First OCC Cosmetics Lip Tar Purchase - Swatches

I've finally had my first experience with OCC Comsetics Lip Tars! A while back they had a little special and I splurged a bit and purchased four colors. And let me tell you, everything you've heard is true:
  • Lip Tars ARE truly opaque!
  • You don't need much at all - think the tiniest spot of color you can imagine, not even the size of a doe foot applicator.
  • The color does dry down to a non-sticky.
  • The colors are really true to the tubes!
Ready for some scary lip pictures? Well, here they are!


Face of the Night - July 22, 2011

Momento is an awesome color. It was more pink than I expected. I paired it with MAC Pink Treat Cremestick liner. But it's a very basic good color to have.


OCC Lip Tar in Anime

Holy Fuchsia! Anime has a certain appeal when you see it and it's easy to see why. This has to be the queen of all fuchsia lip products I've tried. But in my haste I wasn't too careful about applying and got some Anime specs around my face... be ultra careful with this one. You don't want her migrating!


OCC Lip Tar in Hush

Hush was the most difficult for me to apply. As you can tell I had the difficult problem of uneven application with a light lippy. Hush is sort of a beige-peach color and looked rather odd on my lips. This is one I may try mixing with one of my other colors.


OCC Lip Tar in Demure

I was very happy with Demure. I could see myself wearing this quite a bit, perhaps mixing it with Momento or Hush too. Again, a little trouble on the application for me. I think I need a better lip brush.

Some Tips
I do recommend using a lip brush with these. Also you will have to be extra careful as it dries, because this stuff can get everywhere. I had Anime all over my face and didn't realize it - sort of annoying!.  I haven't tried mixing colors yet, but believe me I intend to.

Overall: Yeah, I'm totally smitten with OCC Lip Tars and plan on getting more.

You can purchase OCC Cosmetics Lip Tars from their website for $13. And believe me, with such a small amount going a long way it's totally worth it.
