OCC Lip Tars

I was incredibly excited to get my hands on the Obsessive Compulsive Lip Tars at IMATS this year and was so glad that I was able to get them! The were selling for only ten dollars, which in my opinion, is an awesome deal. I couldn't really decide which colours to get but after playing around, I was able to select four. (However, I am now feeling that I should have got more.)


If you had no prior exposure to (hello, where have you been?) this product than here is a quick explanation on how they preform. OCC Lip tars are a highly pigmented cream that have a pepperminty feel and a opaque semi-matte finish. They are really great for mixing and come in huge variety colours from your usual pinks, peaches and nudes, to blue and yellow! I know, that's cool.   

L-R: TRICK, CHA CHA, STALKER, GRANDMA 
Trick is a nice creamy nude that is on the pinky side, very flattering nude, in my opinion. Cha Cha is a light peach cream. It's a tad light but I used it to mix in with the nude to make it more peach. Stalker is a really purdy blue based red that isn't to dark or vampy. Grandma is a darker coral leaning heavily on the more pink side.

L-R: STALKER, TRICK, CHA CHA, GRANDMA

I can't wait to experiment with these a little more and hope I can get my grubby fingers on some more! Have you tried any lip tars? What colours should I look into next?
