OCC Lip Tar Grandma

Worth The Hype ?


Finally indulged in a lip tar. Didn't want to be 'normal' and go for my usual reds even if the swatches I've seen have been tempting & divine but you know what's coming .... Corals.

OCC Lip Tar - Grandma


Jesus, I'm going to tire out that word before the end of the upcoming seasons.



How did I find it

I barely felt anything on my lips it's so lightweight and we all know that the pigmentation is crazy. I did get quite a lot of bleeding with this product in my opinion so a lip balm or primer before hand would be best and a lip brush for a more precise application. Yet the first time I did use it without it so either way is preferable. To me it dries to a semi matte & glossy texture but not so matte that the feeling it drying.

PROS :
Colour pay off
Longevity
Glossy shine
Light peppermint & slight cooling effect

CONS :
Once removed it can leave a stain
Due to a squeezable application tube you can squeeze out more product than needed.


I purchased mine from Cosmetic Genie, it's the cheapest I found it online. I decided on only the one just in case I wasn't sure on this hype product. Yet after such a successful purchase....there will be more added to the collection.

Have You Tried OCC's Lip Tars ? If so what shades have been your most reached for ?

If not would you consider buying any Lip Tars ?

This is a GORGEOUS hue on you!! I must have it :)

Roseanne said...

Lovely coral color!! I think the stain is quite nice after, it gives a just bitten look once you take the OCC lip tar off and of course you won't feel the consistency of anything. Great post hun - i think OCC is great for theater but i'm not so sure for myself for everyday - have actually done a few swatches Strutter, Stalker and paegent http://roseannebeauty.onsugar.com/Roseannetangrs-Review-OCC-Lip-Tars-11288464 if you're looking to add more to your stash. Paegent is like a super hot pink and the rest are classic, striking reds :)
