OCC Lip Tars – swatches

As promised, here’s my OCC Lip Tars collection. I didn’t swatch the black and white lip tars cause obviously it’s just white and black 😛

So the black and white lip tars are called True Black and True White. The purpose of those lip tars are to darken (True Black) and to lighten (True White) any lip tars. Vintage, as mentioned on the previous post is a deep-true burgundy colour.

The lip tars below are purchased from Sephora at Eaton Center. I believe if you buy the lip tars from Sephora’s website, they also come in the little pouch with a lip brush.

In the pouch, there’s a little instruction on how to apply the lip tar, which is nice. I might get the OCC Clear Lip Tar next time I get the chance to. 😀

So you’ve seen the other 3 lip tars that I’ve bought during IMATS. No, they don’t come in the little pouches, so I just have to use my own lip brushes to apply these. Anyways, from the L to R: Vintage, Queen, Stalker and Strumpet.

Queen is a Bright Coral Pink, Stalker is a True-Red and Strumpet is a Deep-Red Burgundy.

You just need a teeeensie-weeensie dot of the lip tars and wa-lah (read: voila)!

For Vintage and Stalker I’ve done tutorials on it 🙂

I cannot say enough how much I love these lip tars!


  • Reasonable price – for $16 (sephora and occ websites) you get 0.33oz.
  • Very pigmented
  • A little bit goes a long way
  • Long-lasting
  • Vegan
  • Contains peppermint oil – which has a great smell
  • Not drying
  • Comes in a range of colours
  • Lip tars can be mixed to create your own colour.
  • Comes in a squeeze tube which is great for the kit and also hygienic.


  • Can only be bought from OCC website for International locations as far as I know.
  • Might stain your lips (or other stuffs) since it’s super pigmented.
  • Can’t be used on the eyes (due to the peppermint oil)


Vintage Red

My love for OCC lip tars grows stronger every day! I’ve never been the “lipstick” kinda gal but I have a certain fondness for anything red lips. So, I’ve another version of the red lips look using OCC lip tars in Stalker. In this tutorial, I’m using OCC lip tars in Vintage. Stalker is blue red, while Vintage is burgundy red.

I bought mine from Sephora Eaton Center in Toronto. It comes in a small pouch with a small lip brush (I’ll do swatches and all that jazz on my next post).

For the look, the eyes are kept to a bare minimum and I skipped the winged liner. The face is dewy with a little contour. I love how the look turned out. The look is wearable for party or a night-out, or even bridal makeup!

Make sure to re-check the blush after you complete the lips. Since the lip color is quite strong, you might need to add more blush so your face don’t look wash-out.


1. I applied L’oreal Magic Lumi foundation with my fingers. I applied it on the center of my face, blending it outwards.

2. I applied Bobbi Brown Corrector in Peach under my eyes, tapping it using my ring finger.

3. I applied L’oreal Magic Touche Concealer on my blemishes and under my eyes.

4. I powdered my T-zone with Cinema Secret loose powder and a tapered face brush.

5. For the eyes, I applied the light brown eyeshadow from L’oreal Paris Good Luck Charm quad eyeshadow with a flat eyeshadow brush, and blended the crease using a clean blending brush.

6. I applied the dark brown eyeshadow from L’oreal Paris Good Luck Charm along my upper lash line and lower lash line using an angled brush.

7. I used a clean blending brush and applied the highlighter color from L’oreal Paris Good Luck Charm quad under the brow.

8. Using whatever is left on the brush, I applied the highlighter color on the inner corner of my eyelid.

9. I curled my lashes and applied L’oreal Telescopic Shocking Extension mascara on both upper and lower lashes.

10.  I filled my brows using an angled brush and a mix of MAC Omega + MAC Brun.

11. Using a face fan brush, I applied Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Stardust on the cheekbones.

12. Using the same fan brush, I applied MAC  Sculpting Powder in Shadowy on the hollows of the cheeks.

13. Using a blush brush, I applied a mixture of MAC Cubic and MAC Fleur Powder on the cheeks.

14. Using the lip brush that comes with the OCC Lip Tar, I applied OCC Vintage lip tar on my lips.

  • I applied a thin layer at first on the center of the lips.
  • Using whatever is on the brush, I traced the outline of my lips to make sure I like the shape.
  • I applied another thin layer to complete the look.
