OCC Lip Tar - Pageant

Wow I haven't done a post in ages! I've been super busy with work so I haven't really been home during the day to take photos for a blog post. But I had the day off so I've got lots of photos stored for future posts :) (Super sorry about some of the photos! My hand shakes a lot when I take photo's...)

I recently joined Bellabox and as part of a promotion, they sent me a free OCC lip tar! I got the colour pageant which is a super bright barbie pink. I doubt I could pull this off during the day but I love the formula so much that I'm definitely going to pick it up in some other (more wearable) colours.

OCC Lip Tar - Pageant
I found that the lip tar was really runny which was good for application but it kept flowing out of the tube without me squeezing it. It got really messy at one point and went everywhere...

Oops, the photo is out of focus...
All cleaned up...

The lip tar contains 8ml of product and a little bit seriously goes a long way. I found that if I used too much, it would feather or go onto my teeth. Pageant is a bright pink so the application has to be really precise...

I used my finger to apply the product as I didn't get a lip brush with it (I think a lip brush is included, depending on where you buy it from... but mine was free). I probably used more product than I needed to this way so I would definitely recommend using (any) lip brush!

It wears for a few hours with eating and drinking. I love that you don't really need to reapply during the day as the colour doesn't budge too much. When it fades, it fades evenly so I didn't end up with uneven colour across my lips like I do with the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.

I'm so in love with this and I really want to pick up Divine and Trollop as well! OCC lip tars are marketed as 100% vegan and cruelty free. They retail for about $16 which makes them perfect as a Secret Santa/Kris Kringle present for Christmas :)

Does anyone else love OCC lip tars? Let me know what your recommendations are :)

    1. Are you from Sydney? You can get them at Scotty's in Broadway. Otherwise, Bellabox stock some of them on their online store.

    1. I think they're amazing if you like bright coloured lipsticks :) I'm finding myself not really using them right now as they're a bit hard to put on, on the bus or train where I normally do my makeup :P

  10. It doesn't look as good in the container but I'm surprised at how fresh the pink looks on your lips. I've bought several lip tars but haven't got round to trying them (I'm trying to use up other lip products I have already!)...I'm tempted to open one up!

    1. I didn't expect it to be that bright! I'm the same... I have so many lip products that are unopened as I've been trying to use up the ones that I've got open.
