There aren’t many beauty lovers out there who haven’t heard of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (or OCC), especially since they recently debuted at Sephora. One of the most talked about and loved products for OCC are the Lip Tars. The Lip Tars come in a WIDE variety of shades (I’m talking purples and greens to go with the nudes and pinks) but for my first try I played it safe and stuck to a tried and true rosy pink – Memento.
What Sephora says about OCC Lip Tar:
What it is:
A high-opacity lipstick concentrate with unprecedented longevity.
What it does:
Flash a fabulous smile and a stunning splash of color with this lip formula that combines the longevity of a lipstick with the breezy application of a gloss. The rich pigment will drench your pout and the blend of essential oils, including hemp and peppermint, will soothe and soften the skin for a supremely comfortable finish. For easy travel and application, each Lip Tar comes with a vinyl carrying case and mini lip brush.
This set contains:
– 0.33 oz Lip Tar
– Mini lip brush
– Vinyl pouch
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
What else you need to know:
This straight-forward formula does not contain petroleum or silicone and is 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free.
Memento is a lovely medium pink creamy lip color. I love that this gloss comes with a “how-to” application card as well as a small lip brush. The product spreads on evenly even with a small amount and provides a ton of pigment. I didn’t put it on too thickly, because who IRL would actually wear it that way just walking down the street, and was happy to notice that it felt almost moisturizing and wasn’t sticky at all. Wear time was maybe a bit longer than a normal lipstick, but it still comes off if you eat or drink.
