Review and swatches: OCC lip tars


What is it?

Opaque, intence lip color that comes in various colors, and is mixable to make unique colors.

They Describe it as:

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!

Overall Opinion:


I’ve always been a kind of lipstick person more than lipgloss, but recently I’ve tried to use some glosses too. Lip tars are both opaque and glossy. I really like the texture, it’s runny, but not too runny.  Smell is also nice, they smell like peppermint.

I just love the whole idea of mixing your own shades (which you can kinda see from the swatch pics too : P), and adding black or white to control how light or dark you want your lipstick to be. Only imagination is the limit with these!

MUG Seal of Approval:  (5 out of 5)
