Review: OCC Lip Tar in NSFW

NSFW is a bright, blue based red.  It’s fairly neutral, but is definitely blue-based.  The color is VERY pigmented, glossy, and stains.  Lip Tars can be a bit drying, but they wear for hours.  There’s a minty taste.  They feel smooth and light on the lip.  Just don’t use too much, or you may have issues with them smearing!

I have to admit, I LOVE OCC Lip tars. The formula is pretty uniform between colors,but NSFW is worth mentioning because it’s a bit more accessible than many of the shades in the line.  Many of the odder colors work best mixed with other colors, or in abstract and bold blendings. This one is perfect on its own, though.

I get 6-8 hours wear on NSFW, though I do monitor it pretty closely, since the formula is QUITE glossy and slippery.  I don’t notice it catching in hair, but it DOES get on my teeth, for the first hour or so.  The best way to fix this a bit is to make sure you ONLY use a little bit of it in applying.  Spread it evenly with a lip brush to make that amount stretch further.  Generally, I found that if I applied it quickly, and used too much, it would feather, end up on teeth, or smear.  So don’t rush!  It stains!

      It is pretty, isn’t it? I’m more than a little in love with OCC lip tars and NSFW is the most pretty red! I still like my deeper reds for a lot of looks, but sometimes you just need a bright electric red.
