Fun Funky Summer Colors: OCC Lip tars

Even though the trend has moved to a soft orange lip, I suspect this year will go down as "the year of the super pink lip"! I've seen all tones, vibrancy and color combo's. I began to find it quite difficult to keep up...... until I started using OCC lip tars!

These little gem's are packaged like gloss but are opaque lipstick with a satin finish. By usi
ng the primary colors (Pictured left) you can create any color under the sun. For those of you challenged in the mixing area they have a total of 39 colors ranging for the wildest vixen to the timid chica.

From OCC website: A stunning innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick with the ease of application of a gloss and delivers unprecedented pigmentation and longevity! Lip Tar goes on slick and moist and dries down to a satin finish, and barely a drop is needed for complete, opaque coverage. A little goes a very, very long way! An intense yet featherweight layer of color that stands up to all profession mediums and everyday wear, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Mix Lip Tar shades to create a limitless selection of custom colors!

I created a few colors (pictured right) I didn't use any lip liners or lip primers to create these looks only lip tar. I wanted you guys to see how pigmented they were and easily blendable on the lip. Imagine the possibilities!
found you can also use these like lip stains as they are suuuuper pigmented. (not pictured)

Suggestions for application: A little goes a loooong way. Use a pin drop amount and pat the lip with fingers for use as a stain. For more opaque application use a lip brush and apply in layers.

You can check out there website at Right now they have a 6 lip tars set for $50. What an awesome deal!

If you could choose any lip tar which would you get?
