Sephora Sighting! OCC Lip Tar Anime and NSFW | Review, Photos, Swatch

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.

That small drop on the lower left photo yielded that much swatch!
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!

    I got excited when I saw this as well! I love both colors. Do you think Anime would work well on porcelain skin with cool, pink undertones? During winter my skin sometimes looks so cool I almost seem like a ghost.

      I think it would. If you're experimental with bright colors, you'll like this. There are varying shades of hot pink in OCC website, but I really wish Sephora carries more shades so we can have better choices.

    Gorgeous, gorgeous shades and both look incredible on you! I'm impressed that you actually get a lip brush with each, love that! How do these feel as you wear, are they dry?

      Thanks a ton Tina :-))) It's a bit dry but not annoying. If you have really dry lips, I suggest wearing lip balm first then this…xo
