OCC LIP TAR™$13.50 USD | .27 fl oz - OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. OCC Lip Tar is 100% vegan and cruelty-free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. It goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, OCC Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment, so a little goes a very, very long way. The formula of these is unlike any other lip products I have. They apply like a gloss but dry to a satiny lipstick finish. They aren't kidding when they say these are intensely pigmented, one drop will give you a full coverage lip. They feel nice & light on the lips and are very long lasting. The only con's I found were they are too drying for daily use & settle in to lip lines. The product packaging could also use a re-work to prevent excessive product from being dispensed. The color range is spectacular though, not many companies have the balls to offer such off the wall & intense shades. I'm a total "Lip Girl" so I just love the possibilities with these, any lip color you can dream up you can create. Tip: Also try them as a cream blush, so gorge!

While these probably aren't going to be your go-to lipstick for everyday use, they are a fantastic & versatile product to own if you're in to bold opaque lip colors or do avant garde/editorial/photoshoot work or hi-def. I picked up their original shades, but they have since expanded to a range of 36 bold nudes, pinks, reds, and the completely outlandish. Worth the hype? Absolutely.
