Obessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Lip Tar Swatches

I’ve been dying to try the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Lip Tars. Here is some product info from the OCC website.

“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 stands up to the scrutiny of Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Meant to be mixed, Lip Tar comes in concise array of colors for a limitless selection of shades made by you!

Like all of our products, OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. 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!”

I finally took the plunge and placed an order. I stuck with the pinkish colors to start with and my order included

Anime – Vivid, Neon Pink

Pageant – Beauty Queen Fuschia

Demure – Rich, Purplish Fuschia

Hoochie – True Magenta

(For some reason in these pictures Anime and Pageant look the same on me, but I had the hardest time trying to capture the beauty of these two.)

This product is beyond AMAZING, it’s a little package but you need such a minimal amount to get color payoff one tube will last you FOREVER. Its very creamy, super pigmented and has a staying power that’s out of this world. Even after wiping it off it left a nice stain on my lip.

I do plan on ordering more, especially since they recommend mixing to create your own colors. They run $12.50 each and shipping was around 5.00. It took about a week to get my order, but I placed it during Memorial Weekend.

Damn, pagent is pretty...I wish they sell that in store (too cheap to pay for the shipping).

P.S. I am not sure which part of Austin you are located at but I found the NYC display at the HEB at Allendale and Arboretum both branch are reasonably stocked.
