Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar *Queen*
I’ve been reading about OCCs Lip Tar quite frequently on the American blogs that I follow, so when I was in the States last week, I jumped at the chance on purchase one of my very own.
I was struggling to choose between Queen and Anime, however I opted for Queen as it is a more wearable shade for work.
OCC are known for making products that are vegan and gluten free, and that use no animal derivatives such as lanolin and beeswax.
The lip tar itself comes in a cute little transparent zip lock pouch, with a 10ml tube of the lip tar and a handy white handled lip brush. Making sure your lips are primed, dab a tiny drop of lip tar onto the lip brush and apply to the centre of your lips and blend outwards towards the lip line. It uh as a cooling menthol scent and the blue tone of the lip tar makes your teeth look pearly white.
The colour pigmentation is fantastic, and one coat gave me a beautiful fuchsia pink lip with a matte finish. I applied the lip tar at 10am and by 7pm the colour was still visible. I have tried it by adding a gloss over the top to give a high shine finish. The gloss wore off before the lip tar budged!
If I can do a long haul flight without having to reapply my lipstick by using this bad boy, I will be one happy girl!
Ill update with how it lasts transatlantic, and how the drying effect of flying affects the product.
I purchased OCC Lip Tar from Sephora, priced $18, however it is available from selfridges.com for £11.50.
If this is out of your budget, then I must recommend Sleek Pout Paint, available from Superdrug at only £4.99.
Transatlantic update: lasted the whole 10 hour flight with only one top up applied mid flight.
This is definitely my new love. Also, don’t forget to make sure your lips are free from dryness and patches as it does have a habit of staining any dry spots.
