I’m venturing into the world of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar! Yesterday I was reviewing some OCC Stained Gloss and I had mentioned I was a little scared of the Lip Tar formula! I thought it would be super thick, super matte, and super drying but I’m kinda shocked…
I purchased Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Zhora and it so not what I expected. I was under the impression that the OCC formula would be as thick as Sleek Makeup’s Pout Paint but these are actually super glossy…plus the shade I got has a ton of shimmer so what happened to all the matte finish? More importantly who cares because I hate mattes anyway!
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar Swatches (Shade: Zhora)
The Lip Tar formula is actually quite runny, thin in consistency and has a glossy finish on the initial application. In the tube the shade I purchased, Zhora, did scare me as it’s a beige tan. On my lips though it turns into a delightful shade of nude golden beige with a shimmery gold finish. OCC includes a lip brush for application with each of their Lip Tars but this shade seems to have a knack for accentuating every single little natural line on my lips as well as any flakiness or dryness so I apply with my finger to get a smooth, even finish (a little clear gloss on top won’t hurt either to give it an even smoother appearance). As I said initially I get a lot of shine but as the color settles it goes a bit more semi-matte but doesn’t feel uncomfortable, tight, or dry. The color wears around three hours on my lips before fading away!

I can see why everyone is addicted to these Lip Tars. I’m liking them a lot. I had application issues yes but all in all these colors and the ability to mix and match shades can become an obsession quickly I see!
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar are available at Sephora and Sephora.com.
