OCC Lip Tar NSFW

Share
Remember my post about my OCC Lip Tar haul? It took me so long to review them because I didn't touch them for months. I had a bad first impression because I thought it looked fake on my lips. But when I had my Airbrush Makeup Class at HD Makeup Academy, my friend Stef taught me how to use it properly. Now it's what I've been wearing for almost every occasion and my favorite shade is the NSFW.

Here's how I apply it:


Moisturized lips

Make sure you moisturize your lips before applying the OCC Lip Tar. If you have very dry lips exfoliate it first then moisturize. Leave on moisturizer on the lips for about 5-10 minutes.


Lip conditioner

A tiny drop is enough for 2 coatings on the entire lips

Apply as thinly as possible. Use a lip brush to apply the lip color then brush the excess on your makeup plate.

Press your lips on a paper towel then reapply.

Applying every coat very thinly makes a perfect finish.

What I like about the product:

  • Very pigmented. The color is already so vibrant with just one coat. I'm sure the tube will last long.
  • Great staying power.
  • Looks good on photos.
  • Colors can be mixed to achieve a new one.I'm planning to get the primary colors for avant garde photoshoots.
  • The NSFW shade is the best red lip color I have. It suits my skin tone very well.
  • Dries easily.
  • Dries as a matte but with a hint of gloss on its appearance.
What I don't like:
  • Very tricky to apply. You have to do it carefully to get the best result unlike lip colors in tube.
  • I find the gloss consistency a bit messy to apply.

Do you own an OCC Lip Tar? What's your take on this?

OCC Lip Tars are available locally at HD Makeup Studio.

Hi Kim! It doesn't bleed at all? My problem with red lippies is the need to reapply since they get patchy on my lips! =( - Trace

so that's how you put lipstick like you do... where do you buy that moisturizer? sorry weird, parang di ako girl... but really i'm so serious!

@Nikki...haha oo nga eh minsan lang LOL

@Trace...The color sticks to my lips and dries instantly. But it really needs to be applied thinly or else it'll look like a thick paint. It stays pretty good too. Some colors come off when you eat so I make sure I apply 2 coatings.

@Khymm and Debi..Thanks!

@Crickette..I bought is at Natural Source. For me Neutrogena is also nice. Late bloomer din ako noh! I started applying full makeup when I was working already :D
