I absolutely love OCC lip tars. Well, that is a strong statement to make since I only had 1 before I picked up these 2 at IMATS Toronto, but I really loved that lip product all summer. So I really wanted to pick up some darker shades for Fall and Winter. Another huge plus to OCC Lip Tars is that you can mix them to create your own unique shade.

With 35 different colors in the matte formula (which these are apart of) and even more in the Metallics and Stained Glass line, you have endless lip color possibilities. I grabbed Strumpet and Harlot since they seemed pretty versatile!
Strumpet is described as a “Seedless Grape Red.” Personally I think this is closer to a magenta than a grape, or a red, but it is a gorgeous color! I really gravitate towards shades like these because I think they go great with my skin tone and eye color. My signature bold lip is exactly this color! So this is getting a lot of good use.
Harlot is described as a “Neon Popsicle Red.” I would totally agree with that, based on the pictures above! My lip swatch doesn’t really show that, because I didn’t put a thick enough coat of this on. As a stain, kind of as I’m wearing it now, it looks like I was eating a cherry Popsicle. If I wear it a little more heavily, it really is neon! This is one bright tomato red!
I really like both of these colors, but one thing I will say with OCC Lip Tars is that you have to be careful how much you apply. I have been the victim many times of putting too much product on my lips, and these definitely bleed. And these 2 colors stain, so once they bleed you kind of have stained fine lines outside your natural lip line (not a sexy look!). But be careful and these are amazing! You get about 3-4 hours of wear with these, unless you set them with a translucent powder. I absolutely love these, and want so many more shades. And since you need such a small amount, these will last you a lifetime.
What do you guys think? Do you have any Lip Tars?
