how to apply occ lip tar in 3 steps


My first time trying OCC Lip Tar was in a very very busy Sephora store recently where it was hard to get the attention I wanted in finding a new neon lipstick so I started trying this on my hand. Well, let's just say I didnt know what I was getting myself into and had a VERY pink hand after I was done testing these out haha. I had to borrow their makeup remover to even get it looking semi-normal, BUT the colors are so great! I love a high pigment and this one can be worn as a very light stain or a full coverage lipstick. Love the versatility.

Here's how you apply it: 


One: Make sure you have exfoliated your lips to have a nice even surface. Nobody wants cakey cracky lipstick and because this one is pretty matte it is key. 

Two: Primer optional, here is their version. I did not use primer and I'll talk a little more about it below. Apply a little at a time onto the brush that comes with the OCC tube. If you want a light stain, literally a ball point pen tip sized amount will cover your whole pout. I used Queen here. 


Three: Build the coverage one layer at a time starting in the middle of your lips and working outward. You can wipe the brush when you are done and use it to blend a clean lip line. 

The finished result is that is lasts and lasts and lasts even as a light stain and I didn't need to use any primer. I wore it to work yesterday as a light stain and I had no issues with it becoming too dry or smearing even after 2 cups of coffee and breakfast.  If you have dry lips you may want to try their primer, couldn't hurt. 

Another recommendation I now have is that you get a packet of the mini sizes. I bought a full sized tube and even I don't think I will ever be able to use all of it since you need such a tiny amount each application. You can also mix then for unlimited color options. 

Here are some that I am scoping out now, I want to try every color!

    1. Thank you Sandy! Glad you like I will absolutely check out your site!

  2. Thats a beautiful pink shade on you. I sit drying out. I found out that most of hte high pigmented lipsticks make my lips super dry, I hate it.


    1. I do not find it to be drying, but if you feel like you might I recommend using the OCC primer underneath it.

  3. I have a few lip tar shades and I just can't stop it from feathering outside my lip line. I've lined my lips, applied concealer outside my lip line, and whatever I do it still feathers. I love NSWF but I just hate having to be extra careful with these. I've found that the Rimmel Show Off Lips are very similar but less high maintenance.


    1. I dont have that issue so far. Have you tried to use a clear lipliner around your lips first? I use Urban Decay.
