OVER HYPED: OCC Lip Tar
OCC were one of the first brands to start the lip lacquer not a gloss/not a lipstick/not a stain phase in lip products and now just about every brand you can think of is doing their own variations. If you’ve ever read anything about makeup you’d know the OCC Lip Tars get a lot of a hype and quite frankly I can’t quite understand why. No matter how little or much product I use and no matter what technique or tool I use to apply them they bleed, feather, smudge, smear, don’t last long, dry out and irritate my lips, accentuate flakiness, apply unevenly, fade unevenly, have an overpowering smell and the packaging has a tendency to leak everywhere. I have tried many shades from dark to light and bright thinking certain shades just may work better than others but the result is always the same and I always remember why I don’t like them. I think these are a major disappointment and I’m annoyed I wasted so much money on them. I much prefer products like YSL Glossy Stains, Maybelline Color Elixirs and Klara Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lips.
