OCC Lip Tar in Hoochie

One of my purchases from IMATS London (post HERE) was this Lip Tar by OCC.

I had heard so many great things about the Lip Tars but the thing that stood out to me was their pigmentation.

I picked up my first ever lip tar a few months back, that was Black Dhalia, a GORGEOUS deep berry shade.

I absolutely love it, so when I heard OCC were going to be at IMATS I knew I had to pick up another one, so I did!

Say hello to OCC Lip Tar in Hoochie.

This is a cool and creamy pastel magenta colour with blue undertones which dries to a slightly matte finish.

I love the way this looks on me! 

It is lighter than the bolds I normally wear on my lips but I think the cool undertones work well with my skin tone.

I applied this by gracefully ‘blobbing’ a drop (and I mean a drop, a little goes a loooong way) of it on my bottom lip and working it in with my finger, I find this give me the best coverage, however OCC does provide small lip brushes with their lip tars.

One of the cool things about this product, besides it’s awesome pigmentation is it’s peppermintiness.

Yes! That’s right!

It contains a small amount of Peppermint oil which gives a weird tingly sensation when you apply.

Nothing too annoying and long lasting but just enough added fun!

Here I’ve worn Hoochie with Barry M’s lip liner in Plum 11, you can also wear this with MAC’s Nightmoth lip liner too for a more dramatic lip.

From seeing swatches of this lip tar its evident that this colour has changed over time but I’ve gotta say I love this version more!

OCC Lip Tars can be brought from various online stockist including Selfridges, Cute Cosmetics and Love Makeup.

Do you own any lip tars?
