Back in the early days of my blog, I wrote a little review on OCC Lip Tar Queen however because my blog was practically brand new, it hardly got any views. Whilst I’m running the 28 Days of Lipsticks, I thought I would revisit this fabulous product and share the love.
OCC is a brand with a fabulous ethical background. All the cosmetics they make are 100% vegan and cruelty free, whilst giving incredible colours and expanding from lip products into facial cosmetics. I had my heart set on getting one of these babies, so when I touched down in America last Summer, I headed straight for Sephora and the rest is history!
OCC Lip Tar has the long lasting wear of a lipstick but applies like a gloss using the handy brush that comes with it. The consistency of the Lip Tar is almost like a gloss however it dries to a semi matte finish. The wear time is incredible, a good 6-7 hours as the intense pigments within the lip tar adhere to your lips and just don’t let go. The lip tar has a beautiful peppermint scent and feels slightly menthol like on the lips, but this also makes you feel fresh and clean, which is very rare for a lipstick to have an effect on your senses. I don’t find it drying or heavy and a dab of lip balm throughout the day keeps the colour bright and your lips moisturised.
Luckily, OCC Lip Tar can be purchased in Selfridges for £11.50. Have you tried OCC Lip Tar Queen or any other colour? What did you think?
