OCC Lip Tars comes in a tiny plastic pouch as a transparent squeezable tubes with sleek nozzle to dispense out the product accompanied with a small sized applicator brush. They are available in huuugeeeee array of shades and can be mix-matched for creating your own customized colors. Lip Tars are 100% vegan & cruelty free.
These are basically intensely pigmented and don’t underestimate the word *Intensely* here…. they are densely saturated liquid lipsticks which goes on smooth & moist like a gloss settling down as satin finish blanketing your lips to full potential. A single application in morning & one is sorted for the whole day without any touchups. The formula is feather light & nicely clings onto lips without making them uncomfortable or dry and wears for good 7+ hours. These are highly staining and I do require a good oil based remover to wipe off the stain completely. Though the formula is not so unforgiving on lips, I do feel the urge of a lip balm after few hours of wear looking at my extremely dry & flaky lips. They are not drying but not so emollient too.A well buffed lips hold onto the formula much better in such case. As said they are crazily pigmented, a tiny dab is what you need for a rich color pay off. You can either directly apply these from the tube or with a lip brush. I find brush much convenient for better control of product & application. They have got a faint peppermint smell as can be seen in the ingredients list but nothing overwhelming & doesn’t linger for long post application.
QUEEN is a bright Neon Pink but very wearable. It just borders neon without getting into your face kind of stuff.
ZHORA is a cool toned Pale Peach which washes out medium-dusky complexions completely. It is not something I would love to wear on its own but can be mixed with plenty of other shades to make it work out.
Sleek Pout Paints are considered close dupes of OCC Lip Tars. Though I haven’t tried them yet, if looking out for an budget option for Lip Tars they are best to go for.

OCC Lip Tar ZHORA:
- Easy to use convenient tube packaging inclusive of lip brush.
- Intensely pigmented feather light formula.
- Goes on smoothly toning down as satin finish.
- A tiny dab gives true opaque coverage.
- Long wearing.
- Formula not unforgiving on lips (but not too moisturizing either.).
- Huge shade range.

- Can look unflattering on un-groomed lips as are high staining and can highlight flaws.
They are highly saturated, crazily pigmented liquid lipsticks toning down to a satin finish. The formula is not drying though being highly staining but not moisturizing too and a lip balm is much needed going down the wear time. Available in wide range of shades & can be mix-matched to create your custom colors. They wear solidly without a single hiccup for whole day. Highly Recommended!
