On March 19, 2010 I purchased four Lip Tars from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in the following colors:

1. Complex (New) – “Super pale, greyed beige/violet” 
2. Hoochie (New) – “Lush, vibrant magenta” (Love it!)
3. Demure (New) – “Intense, purple fuschia” (Love it!)
4. Safety Orange – “Vivid, vibrant, juicy orange” (Love it!)

I meant to grab Vapid (pale, bubblegum lavender), which is also a new color, but I totally missed adding it to my cart.  

Description (source):
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 featherweight, long-wearing satin finish.

Price: $12.50 

Application:  You only need very little.  Use a lip brush with this.  It glides on really smooth, and the colors are really pigmented. 

Consistency: It’s really light.  I have it on now as I’m typing this, and I don’t feel heaviness or stickiness.  Reminds me of a lipstick.  It’s a little watery coming out of the tube so be careful not to squeeze it too hard.

Demure & Safety Orange stain your lips a little, but that’s not a major deal. 

I want to pick up a few more like Tarred, Pageant etc.  they have some pretty cool colors.  I also want to try their pigments.  I heard some good things about them.

Now for the swatches:

Have any of you tried OCC Lip Tars? If so, how’d you like them?  I look forward to your feedback.

  1. i have never tried these but i have seen a few guru’s reviews on them… my fav. one that you picked is demure… very pretty

    some of their shades are obviously more for artistic looks… but cool nonetheless.

  4. Demure is HOTTTT. I'm trying some of these soon 🙂 I hope they live up to my expectations!
