Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars - Thoughts...

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics  Lip Tars - Thoughts...


$12.50 USD | 8mL - 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. Ultra-saturated in color, Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment - a little goes a very, very long way! An intense yet featherweight layer of color that stands up to the scrutiny of Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Meant to be mixed, Lip Tar comes in concise array of colors for a limitless selection of shades made by you!

Like all of our products, OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. A simple, elegant formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E, OCC Lip Tar feels as good on the lips as it looks!

The website says it all! I really don't know what to add. The description is SO ON POINT!
Lip Tars are lightweight and pigmented. I would compare the lip tars to a liquid lipstick with a lipstain finish. They dry down to a semi matte finish and can be a bit drying so topping them with a clear lipgloss will help. I also suggest a lip primer to prevent bleeding into lip line (which is a possibility with these). There is no taste but there is a slight peppermint scent to the lip tars. I am definitely enjoying these.

UPDATE: I figured out that using these over lip balm or a softening primer helps them stay a bit glossy on the lips. Also, a lip brush is good for these but I have also applied them straight from the tube with no issues. I'm loving how long these stay on even after eating. I prefer them over lipsticks for sure.

I bought 5 of the wearable shades because I don't want to be bothered with mixing the colors to make my own shade: MEMENTO, MELANGE, PAGEANT, HOOCHIE, KATRICIA









  1. I have Katricia and Grandma sold Pageant and recently bought Hoochie last week.

    The pigment is amazing, but almost too much for somebody like me who usually sticks to nude lips for day to day wear. I bought them with the intent of forcing myself to use colour more often. One thing I don't like is how hard they are to get off. Stained lips aren't attractive.

  2. All the colors look nice on you, these lip tars have some serious color payoff.

  3. Lush lips! I want Hoochie & Katricia. :)

  4. memento looks so pretty! how do you think it compares to hush?

  5. Hey City! I actually like the lipstain effect so I don't have to reapply thru out the day. I agree that this stuff is hard to get off. But what to do right?

    Hey Tysh! I love the colors I got. They r a nice mix of natural and bright.

    Vampiress u would love the bright colors!

    Starry Katricia is soooo purple. It's no joke.

    Hey Jillian. I love Memento. Lush is a much paler color compared to Memento. It looks like a light pink concealer to be honest.

  6. So glad I just stumbled across these swatches - thanks!!
