OCC Lip Tar Collection



 From left to right:
I received an email today from a makeup website called Camera Ready Cosmetics and they're having a sale right now w/ OCC Lip Tar's going for 40% off. They're originally $13, and from now until friday it's only about $9 (I would STILL buy them at $13, though).

OCC Lip Tars are described 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!

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!" - OCC website
I've talked about OCC Lip Tars consistently on my blog because I LOVE them so much. They're opaque, long lasting, come in a WIDE range of colors and most of all... they're a makeup artist's dream because you can mix them together. It's seriously like a kid in a candy store. You only need the TINIEST bit to get these bad boys to look opaque, so a tube will last you a very very long time. I immediately ordered 3 OCC Lip Tars (as I am so broke right now from all my other shopping!) and I purchased Anime, Hoochie & Narcissus... I will review those later once I get them. Right now I have 8 OCC Lip Tars, and I'm going to feature 5 today:

  1. Vintage
  2. NSFW
  3. Cha-Cha
  4. Grandma
  5. Harlot
Vintage, NSFW, Cha-Cha, Grandma, Harlot

ON MY LIPS:
OCC Lip Tar in Vintage is a deep burgundy/red color, reminiscent of wine. (mmm wine!) It's my go to lip color when I want to be more vamp. It's also such a beautiful fall/autumn color!

OCC lip tar in NSFW is my most FAVORITE red. While I still love my MAC Ruby Woo, NSFW has taken its place as my #1. The reason why I love this color is because it's a TRUE red, no blue/pink/orange undertones therefore being suitable for ALL skin colors. :) It's so gorgeous! If you've ever contemplated on getting a red lipstick... let it be this one!

OCC Lip Tar in Cha-Cha is an orange/nude and I have to admit that I probably would never wear this color out on it's own because it clashes w/ my skintone. I purchased this because it's a mixer, instantly brightening up any lipstick I may have.

OCC Liptar in Grandma is probably OCC's most coveted color. It's such a pretty peachy/pink. You can honestly use this color for an everyday type of look. It's sweet, it's cute, it's pretty, it's Grandma (you like that joke? ;) hahaha)

OCC Lip Tar in Harlot is no ordinary lip tar, it is very bright with hints of pink & coral and it somehow has small traces of orange on me. It seriously isn't for the faint of heart and it is a very look-at-me color.

I hope this blog persuaded you to at least check out what these babies are all about. If you would like the website for the OCC Lip Tar sale in Camera Ready Cosmetics, click HERE.

FYI, just checked the website right now and they're running out on a lot of colors so HURRY! :)

Until Next Time! :)
