OCC Lip Tar Swatches!

I bought these two babies at IMATS (see previous post!) and I have already fallen deeply in love with both of them. 

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars are an immensely pigmented liquid which are half way between a lipstick and a gloss.  They apply as a creamy liquid but dry on the lips leaving you with a stunning lip colour and a slight sheen.  They are not sticky in the slightest and they have a minty smell.  Because they are ridiculously pigmented, you only need a tiny blob to cover your whole lips.  It’s best to apply this with a lip brush, because they can get a little messy applying straight from the tube.

Divine - Described as a ‘True Pink Flamingo’, both myself, Lily and Milly bought this Lip Tar because it is so beautiful.  It’s a very bright, creamy, milkshake type of pink.  Because it is so bright I find that it does accentuate any dry parts of my lips and it takes work to make it look perfect with a lip brush, but that’s forgivable because of how pretty it is.  This really brightens up my face and looks great with a smokey eye.

Grandma – I have been wearing this every day since purchasing it.  I am absolutely in love with this product, the colour is stunning and looks incredible on pale skin.  It’s described as a ‘Classic Coral’, and it looks like an coral red with a hint of orange on my lips.  I can’t explain how much I love this colour and I received a lot of compliments on it at an event that I attended yesterday! 
Mother Snooks also complimented this yesterday, saying ‘that’s a really pretty colour, it looks like a lipstick that Grandma used to wear’ (my Grandma and I obviously have amazing taste in lipstick shades, she used to wear a lot of orange based reds), and then I was like ‘OMGZ it’s called Grandma!’.  Very weird. Anyway!

What I think – OCC Lip Tars have completely lived up to my expectations and I now want more!  I love the colour shades available and even more I love the fact that you can mix them to create custom shades.  I do like to wear a lip balm underneath the Lip Tars as they do feel slightly drying on and you definitely need to apply with a lip brush to get an even and perfect coverage.  I’d say they last 2 hours on the lips, which is probably the only con I can find with them, I feel like I need to reapply them quite often (maybe I just talk too much?) and you definitely need to reapply after eating. 
You can purchase them at this website here for £8.95,  I bought mine at IMATS for £7 each. 

Have you got any OCC Lip Tars?  Which colour would be your perfect lipstick?

  8. These are two of my favorites from OCC. I recently went crazy and bought a ton! My favorite everyday shade is definitely Grandma. I think it looks wonderful on you. I also really love Queen, Trollop, Strumpet, and Harlot.

  12. I love both colors, but I don't think I could pull off Divine. I always look weird with pale shades, it doesn't go well with my skin tone :)

  13. Grandma is a really gorgeous colour, but I don't know if I'd get them because of the minty smell D': They sound really lovely though and I've wanted some for a long time :)

  16. I have never tried these but got a Sleek pout paint - similar thing with worse ingredients (i read that the OCC has better ingredients...) - but I don't wear lip colours esp bright ones enough to jusify buying these lip tars! :P

  19. Grandma is gorgeous! Such a strange name for a lippy though, ha! I've got Anime, Vintage and Trollop. I think you'd love Trolop, a brighter pink, similar to Grandma. It's pretty difficult to get hold of OCC lip tars now xx
