|L-R Anime, NSFW|
Heart pounding. Adrenalin rushing. Euphoria! That's what I felt upon seeing OCC (Obsessive Compulsive) Cosmetics at Sephora. I never own any OCC 'til now! Ah, such a temptress ~ these are the only cosmetics and/or lip tars currently sold at Ala Moana branch. No swatch needed, I gotta own' em. Snooze and loose, no bueno.
So the only lip tars available ($16 each) were Anime (neon fuschia ) and NSFW (brick red). A lip tar is a liquid lipstick. By OCC definition, you only need a small drop to achieve a super saturated lip color. Each lip tar comes with a small brush that takes the hassle away from application. Remember, a small bead is all you need for your lips! Too much tar results to unsightly feathering. It goes on moist upon application and dries to a matte finish. You can mix tars for a gradient effect or apply lip gloss on top. The wearability was indeed impressive, I'd say about six hours on me. I had to use cotton pads moistened with micellar water (read previous review) as standard facial wipes are not enough to remove the last traces of stain.

I declare, Anime is officially the brightest fuschia I own.
|Yet another to-die for red lippy. NSFW is so sexy!|
I can't wait to try more OCC lip tars and makeups. Sephora, stock up soon!
