Product Review: OCC Lip Tars!
After the last post it was time for a happy and love-product post. This review has been requested by Renu of My Beauty Junction who asked me to review these and since I have like 4 shades of these I thought why not. Well I am going to keep this review short and to the point. Basically I love these.. I used to have a couple more accompanied by a mixing dish and a lip brush, but my sister called dibs on them. Nonetheless I've kept 4 guarded for myself.
Price: $ 18 + taxes
Quantity: 0.33 oz
What Sephora says about the lip tars:
Flash a fabulous smile and a stunning splash of color with this lip formula that combines the longevity of a lipstick with the breezy application of a gloss. The rich pigment will drench your pout and the blend of essential oils, including hemp and peppermint, will soothe and soften the skin for a supremely comfortable finish.
So I have 4 gorgeous shades to review for you.
In the tube this color looks horrifying, I won't lie. I was scared of it at first when I first got it. I then tried it on and found that it leaves a lovely winey-plum sheen behind once blended well. This is the perfect autumn color and perfect for a night out. This color is also awesome darken lighter shades. Its perfect for mixing as well as a solo application. This shade is similar to MAC Rebel.
Okay this shade is poorly named! I love the orangey-coral color it gives off.. Okay I have to confess this is the lightest Lip Tar I have in my collection and looks amazing layered on or as a light lip color on its own.. For those who are NC 42 or above this may wash you out on its though but feel free to mix with any other shades, thats what lip tars are for anyway :)
Well can this shade get any more neon? This is a gorgeous color and looks amazing when on or if you have a layer of this and top it of with Grandma from above which would make it a gorgeous pinkish-coral color. For those of you who are NC 43 and above this may wash you out. This shade is somewhat similar to MAC Candy Yum Yum but not completely.
This color is one of the most famous colors in their line. This shade is super gorgeous as well. This is a true fuchsia and looks lovely when on. I wouldn't really mix this with other colors as this looks super lovely on its own. This shade is similar to MAC Girl About Town.
Lovely color range (they have the weirdest mixing colors such as blue, yellow, stark white etc)
Superb lasting power
Great color payoff
Price (although the sets are value for money)
Slightly drying on the lips (need to exfoliate lips and use a lip balm prior to using this product)
Overall the OCC Lip Tars are gorgeous and amazing products and a great addition to your vanity. A little goes a longgg way and you need less then a small drop sized product to cover the whole lip so for the money these will last you for a veryy long time. They stay on forever and may need touch up if you go through numerous meals. Will survive small meals and won't transfer once the product has set. I must admit mixing and creating new colors is the best part of this product.
Will I repurchase?: Not these exact shades as these would last a long time but yes I am looking forward to buying more shades.
Have you tried the lip tars? Did you like them?
