Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Set in Neutral

I'm fascinated by these.  I hope I don't become obsessed.  The pigmentation is crazy, seriously off the charts.  As described on the OCC site:
A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment - a little goes a very, very long way! An intense yet featherweight layer of color that never looks or feels heavy. Meant to be mixed, Lip Tar comes in concise array of colors for a limitless selection of shades made by you! A simple, elegant formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E, OCC Lip Tar feels as good on the lips as it looks!
  • Interlace~ Palest Peach Creme
  • Hush~ Pale Bridal Pink
  • Memento~ Plum-Toned Pink
  • Melange~ Terracotta Neutral
  • NSFW~ True Red
I just got this set so want to wear them for a while before reviewing, but could not resist posting some swatches.  I've been curious about OCC's lip tars but wasn't sure where to start, but beauty.com has two sets available  - neutrals and brights - so I figured the neutrals were the way to go.  The set retails for $49.50 and included 5 lips tars and a lip brush.  I'll be posting a review and some looks soon!

Disclosure:  I purchased these.


  1. Wow, that NSFW is amazing! I have been wanting to try Lip Tars forever but haven't gotten around to it yet. This set definitely seems like a good place to start!

    1. I've got to say, I'm really liking these so far. I'm glad I took the plunge.

  2. I have never heard of these before. I always love the look of lipstick on others but it makes my face look fatter (i know...stupid). That red is beautiful though - I'm interested to see what it looks like on!

    1. I'm a bit self-conscious wearing lipstick myself, but am easing into it. These really are lovely.

  3. The pigmentation on these is off the chart! Incredible.
