OCC Lip Tar – Pretty Boy – Reviews, Photos, Swatches


LIP GLOSS, Lips, NC20, OCC, Yishan | by — November 27, 2012


Brand: OCC
Range: Lip Tar
Shade: Pretty Boy
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • OCC lip tars are ultra saturated in colour, and combine the longevity of a lipstick with the ease of application of a gloss.
  • Applies slick and moist, drying down to a satin finish that’s surprisingly lightweight despite its highly opaque appearance.
  • Made with simple formula that contains hemp oil, peppermint oil, Vitamin E.
  • Does not contain petroleum, parabens, silicone and is 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
  • Each lip bar comes with a vinyl pouch and a mini lip brush.  All you need is a small drop & use the brush for precise application – a little goes a VERY LONG WAY.
  • Pretty Boy is a hot pink / fuchsia.
  • Tip: To prevent feathering, apply the bulk of the product within the main areas of the lip, using only what’s left on the brush to define the lip edges to prevent feathering.
  • Verdict: It’s not hard to see why OCC Lip Tars are much loved by so many, with its amazing colour pay off and versatility.  Just a tiny dot on your lip brush will give you a medium coverage stain, whilst another dot or two and you get an opaque lip.  Personally I prefer the stain finish as it’s less prone to transferring & I also like how the diffused effect counter-balances with such a strong colour.

I applied a generous layer for maximum effect, but in reality I’d apply only a quarter of this amount for a fuchsia stain.

I purchased this product.
