OCC Lip Tar Collection + Swatches

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a 100% vegan and cruelty free company based in NYC. They are best known for their lip tars but also sell loose pigments, tinted moisturizer, concealer, airbrush foundation, nail polish, and other beauty items. To learn more about the company you can visit their website here.

I first purchased my lip tars at the NYC IMATS this past year. I picked them up since they were discounted. Normally the lip tars sell for $15 USD each and you get .33 fl oz of product. I picked up two more recently through since they were giving you a free one if you spent $10. I believe that Sephora is going to be selling them soon as well. They have over 30 colors so you can really have fun with these products. They have blue and purple for example which you can mix with reds and pinks to change the color for your lips. The possibilities are endless. They are highly pigmented and really do stain your lips without feathering as long as you use a lipliner. 

The lip tars are a liquid/cream consistency and the packaging is great so that only a little bit of product comes out of the tube. These are the most pigmented lip product out there. The lip tars can be a bit intimidating but are so much fun to use. You can wear these as a full on lipstick or as a stain if you blot your lips after you apply it. These wear pretty well and last quite a while on your lips. The stain will be there throughout most of the day. 

OCC Lip Tar Collection

"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 never looks or feels heavy. Meant to be mixed, Lip Tar comes in concise array of colors for a limitless selection of shades made by you! 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!"

"DIRECTIONS: Apply the tiniest bead of Lip Tar with our #010 Precision Lip Brush for complete, opaque coverage, either mixed with other shades or on its own. Applying too much product can result in feathering outside the lipline, so remember: a little goes a very long way!"
