OCC lip tars

post #1 of 1887
Thread Starter 

I just ordered my first five lip tars and I am so excited.... What about you all??  I am interested in knowing, what are your favorite lip tars?  Feel free to post pics!

post #2 of 1887

I may give some of these a try now that they will be on Sephora's site.  Still unsure about what colors to pick though. 

post #3 of 1887
I've not tried any of the lip tars yet. (Or any of OCC's other products, for that matter.) I've got my eye on them, though.

Besides Nylon, which lip tars do you ladies think are great wearable shades? I've tried looking for swatches and it's hard to find all of the colors.

What colors did you buy?
post #6 of 1887

I just ordered my first lip tar. The special edition Nylon shade from Sephora. I didn't try any of them before because I thought they were too advanced for me, but I'm excited to try it. I'm going to purchase a lip tar set next if I like working with Nylon.

^^^Please post pics & review when you get it.  I really want to try some of these now that I can order from Sephora.  Hopefully they will get other colors in addition to Nylon.

I ordered Demure, Hoochie, Queen, Amine, NSFW... I'm since ordered Pretty Boy and Stalker! I definitely want Nylon though

Here are swatches (off NC30 skin tone) of all the Lip Tars I own to date.

From left to right: Stalker, NSFW, Vintage, Tarred, Feathered, Plum (which I no longer see on OCC's site), Hoochie, Anime, Grandma, Divine, Melange, Kava Kava, Petty Beige and Ophelia.

 

 

Closer swatches:

 

 

 

These colors can definitely be mixed to create custom colors! A little product goes a long way. Per each of my swatches, I could probably paint three to four lips with opaque coverage. My favorites out of what I have are NSFW, Tarred, Hoochie, Anime, Kava Kava and Ophelia.

Hi sfmakeup! In terms of "wearable" would you say neutrals?  If so, I'd say Melange, Kava Kava or Hush. I don't own Hush, but per swatches I've seen online it is a nice pink nude without looking corpse like.

 

Hope this helps!

Which one are you getting? I've already got Anime, Hoochie, Belladonna, Digitalis, and Trollop thanks to the NYC IMATS.

post #13 of 1887

For those of you that have purchased Nylon and already own Anime is it really worth having both?

post #14 of 1887

I love my Lip Tars and I'm always adding to my collection.  I love the fact that you only need a drop to get the amount of color you need.  I also enjoy the fact that I can mix colors to create new ones. The peppermint that's in it is very soothing to the lips as well. 

 

So far I have: Kava Kava, Penny Royal, Stalker, Belladonna and Feathered. pretty.gif

 

Unfortunately the pro discount doesn't apply in stores so I'll continue to order via the website.

Between Kava Kava and Penny Royal I just can't make up my mind which one to get first.

post #16 of 1887

I purchased Kava Kava first it's more of a salmon color..Penny Royal is more brown..if that helps

 

Here's a link to my blog where I reviewed the Lip Tars...there's a few pics as well...

I can tell form the photo of Nylon that Anime is a deeper pink. In MAC speak, I would put Amine it Girl About Town and Nylon with Saint Germain. Not comparing the two color wise, just lumping them by color range. If you love bright pinks, both of them are great to have.

OCC makes the best reds! I skipped all the Mac reds this year since I've tried Stalker and NSFW. I was really surprised they were so wearable because of my undertones when it comes to red. I am looking at the reds coming out with the Marilyn collections, but only because it's her. With Stalker and NSFW, I'm good on reds for a long time.

Lip Tars have peppermint in them? I hope it won't be a problem for me. I tried MAC Plushglass once and needed to immediately take it off because of a strong burning sensation.

post #19 of 1887

That is why I got Nylon and will still get Anime. Also why I have CYY, Pink Pigeon and Dear Diary lol. They are all different enough to justify owning all!

Yes peppermint is in the formula but it's more of a smell than a feel. You should be fine, nothing like the Plushglasses.

Yes and yes. It's online only, too.

I ordered it through the Sephora store at amazon, but for some reason it was cancelled. They waited a whole day to tell me! Anyway, went directly to Sephora and ordered it. I should have it early next week. I'm so impatient.

i think it's neither. it's all a marketing strategy. somebody at sephora said, is that nylon? I said yes, and she said I cant wait till we get it here
