Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set- OCC Cosmetics

     I was first introduced to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars, from a MAC artist that taught a makeup class at school earlier this year.  He was giving us a run down of his favorite makeup products from his kit and mentioned these amazing lip tars.  It was something I kept in mind to try in the future but just kind of forgot about it.  Then, to my happy surprise, I found that Sephora very  recently started carrying them.  Woohoo! 

     With too many colors to choose from I decided to get the Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set that includes five of the OCC pros favorites.  At  $16 a piece these are quite pricey, but in this case you get a great quality product.  The set of five was $49, so it ended up being a better value.    Check it out:

First Impressions:

  • You only need the tiniest dot of product to cover your whole lip, so the tube will most likely last quite a while
  • I like the brush to line the lips then fill for best result
  • Lasts long
  • Colors are bright and true to what you see in the tube
  • Use a little to stain, use a lot for glossy glam lips- versatile
  • Can be messy if you aren't careful with the product
  • Richly pigmented, I love the formula
  • Matte finish thats a little dry but not uncomfortable
  • LOVE!  I want more colors already like more nudes or softer colors

I plan to do a review and swatches on each individual color in the future so that you can see what each looks like on and more info about the specific colors.  Until then, thanks for reading and I'd love to hear your thoughts and if you've tried any Lip Tars yet.
