Epic OCC Lip Tar Swatch Post

By  |  114 Comments

I feel like this entire webpage is a swatchfest lately, lol. But that’s okay, it makes me feel accomplished! Today’s post will consist of swatches of all the Lip Tars I have. I think I’m just missing one (Uber) but the rest should be swatched below. Three things I have to mention to those who have never used these:

  • They are meant to be mixed to create new colors (although you don’t HAVE to do that) So when you see one that’s white or bright blue (which I WISH was socially acceptable to wear out, its SO COOL) just know it’s meant to be mixed. I think I’ll do a post within the next week that will show some ideas when mixing :)
  • You only use the TEEEEEEEENIEST amount with these! If you overuse, it looks super icky. For reference, this is about the amount I use for my whole lips: Shades and that’s a lip brush, so a tiny tiny amount goes a LOOONG way!!
  • If you leave these in a container or somewhere for an extended period of time, they will separate. To mix them back together, just filp them the opposite way in which they were being stored (so if you had them laying flat, just flip them over so the other side is on top) and within an hour they should be mixed together. If you’re pressed for time I found the best way to mix them somewhat quickly is to tap them on a hard surface on each side for a few minutes and shake them up :)

Occliptar 2

Occliptar 3

Occliptar 4

Occliptar 5

I’m noticing that my camera has picked up most of these just a little bit lighter than they are in real life, so take that into account :)

Each of these is available from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics for $13 each. These are FANTASTIC for makeup artists, you’ll never need another lip product again :)

    what can you mix with botanical green?

    • xsparkage

      May 8, 2010 at 11:23 pm

      you can use it to tone down bright red lipsticks, since green cancels out red

    i’ve always wondered are these worth getting, how long do they typically last? and how moisturizing are they? do they fade nicely?

    LOVE this! I have a question though, like in the swatches on the corners of your lips it appears that the tar pools and it looks kinda like colored slobbery- gross (I hope to god that didn’t offend you, because obviously its the product, lol!) Does it dry so that stops happening, or is it always that way?

    I love that there’s a color called hoochie. Is it wrong of me to want it for just that reason?

    Thank you sooo much for taking the time to make those swatches. They definitely helped me decide what colors to buy. I just bought some! Thank you for your help.

    If you had to choose 2 which would you pick? Preferably universal pink and neutral shades.

    • Sikandra7

      October 10, 2012 at 10:09 am

      I know you said just two but I wanted to tell you that with Hush, Memento, and Grandma I can create all manner of different pinks, so if you can get three, do. If not, Grandma and Hush will get you a shade of pink you’ll like…just play around with your mix until you’ve got what you like. I’m certain there are many more colors to help with getting a good pink but I only own the six colors Sephora just started selling so when I want pink I use the colors I mentioned. Right now I’m looking at the swatches to figure out how to get a universal shade, a nude type color. Sephora doesn’t yet have colors to do this so I’ll have to go on-line for my next purchase of Lip Tar.

    just a heads up on their website they state $400, not $300 for the whole set

    • Jubilee

      September 16, 2010 at 2:56 am

      It was $300 when this post was originally made. Since they added Cha Cha, Divine and the Fall Collection the price for all has gone up to $400.

    • Sikandra7

      October 10, 2012 at 9:59 am

      The Clear Lip Tar is puzzling to me. Is it just a gloss to put on top of Your other Lip Tars or is it more than that?

    Best you should make changes to the post subject Epic OCC Lip Tar Swatch Post xsparkage to more generic for your webpage you create. I loved the post withal.
