OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tar Review, Swatches and Photos

June 12th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

During The Makeup Show Chicago 2013, I finally got to see the OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars in person and just as expected, they are AWESOMEEEEE!

OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars Review

Like the original Lip Tar, the Stained Gloss Lip Tar is enriched with Castor Seed Oil, Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil, Vitamin E and without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. There are six colors available, including five wearable shades that are perfect for the summer and a neutralizing color.

Voyeur is a bright yellow. It can be used to neutralize other colors or worn alone for a fun look.
Androgyne is a bright cool-toned orange.
Jealous is a vibrant red with just a touch of pink.
Metais a bright orange red and and almost identical to Jealous.
New Wave is a neon pink.
Rhythm Box is a dark cherry red.

The gel formula went on slightly runnier and left behind a lightweight, glossy finish that was more translucent and forgiving. One tiny drop gave intense color but you could blot it down for a stained look. I also find the formula to be slightly less drying compared to the original and I was able to get 2-3 hours of wear with one single application.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Swatches Part 2

August 4th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

After my first batch of OCC Lip Tar Swatches, I decided to let the artist in me come out and play. Following the basics of color theory, I used your typical primary colors – NSFW (primary red), Yellow Iron Oxide (mustard yellow) and RX (primary cyan blue) – along with Feathered (white), to create my very own shades. To start off, here are swatches of just RX and Yellow Iron Oxide as requested by you guys:

Since OCC Lip Tars are uber opaque as I mentioned in my review, I had to use three times as much of the white to lighten the color to make it more wearable. RX also seemed to stain my lips, skin and even teeth (yikes!) so using a brush for application and an oil-based remover is highly recommended.

What’s your favorite shade?

FOTD: Tropical Eye Makeup and Glitter Fuchsia Lip with Adriana

July 29th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Over the weekend, I met with Bulgarian beauty Adriana for a shoot. She was super cool and open to colors, and when she picked out a pair of blue polka-dot lashes from my Halloween collection, I decided to go all the way with a glitter fuchsia lip and tropical colors on the eyes. Definitely not your everyday look but fun and great for the summer nonetheless. Thanks so much for the good time Adriana! =)

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Review, Photos and Swatches

July 2nd, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Finally, here are pictures and swatches of the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars I got from The Makeup Show! Be prepared to drool ladies!

Packaged in a cute 8ml tube that fits in my palm, the Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick with the ease of application of a gloss. The formula is 100% vegan, cruelty-free and contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E minus parabens and other harsh preservatives.

There are a total of 39 shades to choose from, which cover your regular nudes, corals, reds, pinks and even yellow, green, blue, purple, white, black and gray for mixing. I ended up getting 9 colors, including:

Hush – The perfect bridal pink, soft & natural.
Memento – Soft pink/plum neutral.
Anime – Iintense, no holds-barred neon pink.
Trick – Pale beige with subtle warm undertones.
Interlace – Subtle peach neutral.
NSFW – True primary red.
Yellow Iron Oxide – Mustard yellow, ocher in the most literal sense.
RX – Primary cyan blue.
Feathered – Pure, opaque white.

The Lip Tars apply smoothly and wet like gloss but dry within seconds to a satin finish that stays on well. Plus the claim that they are “ultra-saturated in color with an unprecedented amount of pigment” is very true. Even the tiniest drop gave me so much color I had to blot to tone it down. Just look at the swatches below!
