OCC Lip Tar Review + Lip swatches!

OCCAs promised, since I am finished with this semester, I will be posting swatches and reviews of some of the goodies I picked up!

OCC LIP TAR Review

I've had these Lip Tars for about a month. I've used them on gigs and am generally pleased with my purchase.

Pros:
  •  The intensity of the color is build-able. The colors are pigmented but you can use a little bit to give a tint of color and build it up if you'd like to.
  • The consistency of the lip tars is not thick.
  • Has a minty smell to it but does not have a taste.
Cons:
  • Can cause a bit of staining. I found that it depends on the color that's used. I will place a "s" in parenthesis next to the shade to let you know which caused staining during my swatching process.
  • My lips tingled a bit when I applied the lip tar. Not an unbearable or uncomfortable feeling but I just thought I'd share the info.
  • Some of the lip tars are a little more watery then others. 
Tips: 
  • For the shades that stain, I recommend using a makeup remover wipe in combination with a makeup remover lotion or oil to remove the lip color.
  • Shake before using.
  • Remember to moisture lips prior to the application.
  • Apply using a lip brush.
