OCC Heroine Lip Tars

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.

  2. Chloe says

    I love lip tars! Every time I see them I’m just like “Ok I need them all!!!” :P Love the colors you picked!

  3. Lojs says

      its seriously uhmayyyyzing!!!!

  4. Kim says

    Hey Leesha, can you post a pic on Facebook with NSFW and starling side by side?? I’m torn on which i like better!!

    1. xsparkage says

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

      1. Kim says

        I most definatly like NSFW better!!! I’ve been looking for a red matter that last, think i found it!!

  5. Hannah Foster. says

    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.

    1. Rebecca G says

      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)

      1. Hannah Foster. says

        Ah that’s brilliant, thank you! (Yep, pre-emptive apology to my bank balance.)

  6. Lauren Schroer says

    Black Dahlia is absolutely beautiful! I love Marion and Psycho too!

  7. Jenna says

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

  8. ashley says

    Def loving Sybil and psycho. Sybil is so autumn-y and psycho is just so out there.

  9. Emmely says

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the last one! Super hot

  10. Annnhaa says

    Your lip swatches are THE BEST. You have perfect lips!

  11. Shannon Dean says

    LOVE marion.. looks like a really nice everyday colour

  12. Mari Helen Teighagen says

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

  13. Rikki says

    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?

  14. Phyrra says

    I just picked up Black Dahlia, sooo gorgeous! It looks great on you :)

  15. Kissy says

    Wow! I love Lydia and then psycho…and then I just decided to like them all!

  16. 13R4NDi says

    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?!

  17. Miss Dustyn Rumble says

    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?

  18. Patty says

    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!

  19. Nicole McIntyre says

    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 :)

  20. Lizluv says

    I got seven lip tars last year and seriously these will last u forever. I gave two away in a giveaway coz I just knew Id never use those colors.

  21. Shiuna Habs says

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

  22. Guest says

    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.)
