OCC Demure Lip Tar

OCC Demure Lip Tar

Another product I was lucky to find in one of my Selfridge's Lucky Bags (read review here) was an Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in the shade Demure. I'm fairly new to Lip Tar's from OCC, I only recently heard of them through the #bbloggers chats over on Twitter but I was instantly intrigued and when I checked them out over on the Selfridge's website, there seemed to be tons of shades I would happily lust after. And I say lust, because I didn't really think they were worth the £10 price tag. But now I have one! And it's a lovely, if not impressively bright, purple pink shade. The shade is actually pretty much the exact shade you see in the tube. It's very me, and I love it!


I actually think these Lip Tars are a little bit ridiculous. Why, I hear you ask? Well you basically need one tiny drop of this for both of your lips. One tiny drop. These come in 10ml tubes. I genuinely do not think I will ever use this entire Lip Tar up. £10 is, now I have used it and seen how impressive the formula, pigmentation and staying power is, which btw is amazing in answer to all three, I think £10 is a reasonable price. But it also seems like an incredible waste of product because it would take me literally years to get through this! But, I would actually add more to my collection! There is a huge colour range and I do think they are worth the money. And I would recommend adding at least one to your collection!

If you have one of these, let me know what your favourite shade is. If you don't, would you ever add a Lip Tar to your collection? What other OCC products would you recommend I try? Let me know! I am very new to the brand and this is my first product from them, so I'd love to hear what else from OCC is worth the investment!

You can find OCC Lip Tars over on the Selfridge's website and they cost £10 each.

  1. I've been using OCC Lip Tars for close to two years and I absolutely love them! It's true though, it'll pretty much take a lifetime to go through one whole tube. I use them a lot as a makeup artist, and I can mix different shades to create the perfect lip color for my clients. Plus, the staying power is incredible! I'm currently obsessed with the color Black Dahlia, and I love Trollop as well. I actually don't have Demure yet, but that's on my "soon-to-buy" list. You should try their other products as well, such as their loose colour concentrates and the tinted moisturizer!

  6. As a regular makeup user I don't have much use for all that product, but since these are also for mixing and suitable for body/face painting the amount of product is very fair for makeup artists.

    Divine is a really pretty yellow based pink. I think you might like it. It's a little bright and vibrant though. Hush is a great everyday shade. xx

  11. I love this Lip Tar and I got the very same shade in my Selfridges Lucky Bag! However, the colour does feel a bit bright on me. Got to be brave as the staying power and pigmentation is amazing! x

  12. I have 2 lip tars in lydia and black dahlia, both are gorgeous but I agree with what you say about never being able to use them up. I will deffo be getting more though! x

  13. I haven't yet tried the lip tars but I will - I've had them in my cart a few times haha. This color looks promising. I'd been trying to decide on a natural pink and the one they recommend as "the perfect bridal pink" (or something like that) just seemed too light for me.

  18. I have 7 Lip Tars and so far Hoochie, a bright purple, is my favourite. I get quite a lot of compliments on it at work. Memento is a good, really easy to wear colour. I would love to try the OCC concealers next.

  19. been meaning to try occ liptar for ages, but always put it off. somehow, i felt/feel that trying it would signify a kind of turning point that i'm not sure i am ready for. i'm scared b/c i love all my lipstick babies.. i am afraid the lip tar will be better and i won't wear lipstick any more. ahh that sounds dumb.. but i've always been a HUGE loyal lipstick fan.
