Varying color range of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tars

What I Like: OCC is a 100% Vegan, cruelty free company that incorporates Vitamin E, Hemp oil and peppermint oil in their lip products. This has always been an important factor because I have dry skin and require the extra nutrients to keep my lips moisturized throughout the day. The lip tars come in 0.27 fl oz tubes for $ 13.50 USD which is also a plus.  A little goes a long way with this product and even a small drop can create a fully opaque lip color that lasts at least five hours without any noticeable fading.  This product would be extremely convenient if you’re a busy woman on the go, a bride or even an industry professional that needs long lasting products on the job.  OCC also has a wide range of colors that are mixable and allow for endless creative diversity.

What I don’t like:

There isn’t much I don’t like about this product, but I believe that honesty is the best policy when reviewing a product. I personally found that the lip tars can accentuate any dryness or flaw you may have on your lips so my best suggestion is to make sure you keep moisturized and exfoliate before use.

Tips for application:

  •          Exfoliate your lips to remove any excess dryness
  •          Make sure to moisturize your lips on regular basis
  •          Blot off any excess moisture before application.
  •          To prevent the lip tar from feathering, invest in a similar color lip liner and fill in your entire lips.
  •          Next, use a tapered lip brush to apply the lip tar for a more precise and clean application.
  •          Conceal around your lips with a flat edged brush and set with powder.

Where to buy: or at IMATS Trade Shows.

Rating: 4.5/5
