OCC Heroine Lip Tars

By  |  31 Comments

Lip Tar! My favorite lip product. Super concentrated formula provides the most pigmented color you can imagine using the tiniest amount of product. Beautifully applies with a lip brush (an angle brush is my favorite, you get crisp lines around your lips!) and easy to mix together to create a custom shade. Here are swatches of the newest tars, from the OCC Heroine collection!

By FAAAAAAAAAR, my favorite of this group is Black Dahlia. What a surprise that was applying it- I was expecting to look super dark and goth, but nope! Beautiful deep berry shade. It’s absolutely fantastic and perfect for fall. 

Lip Tars are $16 each for a tube you will never ever finish, and are available from OCC and Sephora.

    I just tried Strumpet for the first time. OHMYLANTA I LOVE OCC LIP TARS! I love the look of Lydia, and I hope the Sephora I work at gets them soon. I’m in Canada, so sometimes I’ve noticed we get things after the US does, in general.

      Here you go! NSFW is way better, IMO, if youre looking for a true red. its perfect!

    What’s the finish like on these? Are they as glossy as they look here, because I’m seriously loving the colours(!!) but I’m more of a matte person.

      They are satin-y matte-ish. Not glossy. Give them a try, you won’t regret it. (Well, your bank account might…but you need these in your life)

    Black Dahlia looks like a must have! I just received Memento and Nylon in the mail today, and I couldn’t be more happy.

    Marion seems lovely, but WOW Black Dahlia is amazing. I think it will look good on my skin tone as well.

    I have a few lip tars and for some reason, they do not last near as long as all the reviews I’ve read!! What can I be doing wrong?

    Oh my! They are lovely! I want all, except Sybil.

    How on earth are your lips so amazing? I barely ever wear lipstick because my lip are always peeling. I drink lots of water, and keep them moisturized. HELP?!

    I just gasped and wrote down the names of Marion and Lydia as must haves. Eek! Black Dahlia is incredible but I don’t think I’d wear it often but it is gasp-worth still. And I agree with Annnhaa – “your lip swatches are THE BEST! You have perfect lips!” do you have a lip care post at all?

    I just used my $20 Ulta coupon to get 2 Lip Tars and can’t wait to get them. Black Dahlia is on my must have list. Didn’t get it this time but it will be mine!

    I recently tried Memento and it went on horribly. The Lip Tar settled within the lines of my lips and dried on the matte-r side. Any tips or tricks?
    Btw, I don’t have old lady lips — I’m 29 :)

    I am practically drooling over here! XD Look at the color in Psyco, a well deserved name.

    I don’t think I could pull off Starling (or hell, Black Dahlia) but oh my god do I want them. Marion is a little more realistic for me, I think. (And WOW. Psycho is just…wow. I’m not usually one for orange-toned reds but that one beats out all the others I’ve ever seen.)
