I’ve done two previous posts on products I received in the Sephora ‘Give Me More Lip Set’. The two brands I reviewed were Too Faced and Tarte. Click HERE and HERE for those posts. This time around I’m reviewing the craze of the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, ‘OCC Lip Tar.’ I’m so excited to review this and it’s by far my favorite from the set.
Before I get into the review let’s just talk about the brand for a second. OCC is one that has hit YouTube with a surge and the craze has been all around they flip tars. I have been wanting to try them out for quite some time and when I saw the lip tar was offered in the set I couldn’t pass it up. Plus it was in a shade I would actually wear,
The ‘OCC Lip Tar’s’ are available in a variety shades/finishes and sell for $18. The Sephora set gave a test tube size in the color ‘Black Dahlia’ from the matte collection and can be purchased HERE (when it gets back in stock). There’s a test tube set as well that offers 12 shades for $59.
The color ‘Black Dahlia’ is described as a “blackest blackened red.” When I first saw the color I thought it was a black. When applying I saw the red tint it is described as when further applying with the brush turned into a deep burgundy. I absolutely LOVE IT! I am not keen on using a lip brush (I suck at it), but I was able to apply this product with ease and little mess. I do store it in a sandwich bag inside my lippie bag. While it is matte, I still applied the e.l.f. ‘Translucent Matifying Powder’ on top. It works for me and no the color does not crack.
The only thing about the set that I would’ve liked is the vinyl pouch that the lip tar comes with. It’s great for traveling purposes in and out of different handbags and to keep the lippie and lip brush together.
I would love to purchase more of these colors and for $18 it’s not horrible for a lip product that goes such a long way. There’s so many shades that I really do not know which to choose. I’d rather go in the store and pick from there. Other shades I would like to try: ‘Tarred,’ ‘Pagan,’ ‘Traffic,’ and ‘Vain.’
Did this product live up to the hype? Yes. Would I purchase again at full price? HELL YES!
