I’ve had this lip color FOREVER and I have no idea why I have not reviewed it before. I adore this product because it is unlike anything else I’ve ever tried in a very, very good way. This color, Super NSFW, which I would totally wear for work, by the way, is absoutely divine!

The Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip tar is described as:

A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment – a little goes a very, very long way!

The color Super NSFW which I’m reviewing here is described as a “gold laced red”. It has a beautiful satin finish with flecks of gold (just a sheen, nothing major) and applies beautifully!

What’s good about it

  • The color is vibrant and super flattering. One coat is enough to have full coverage, it is super pigmented! At the same time, you can half the amount to apply and make it more subdued
  • All you need is a tiny little bit of product to have the full effect. Which means this lip product could last you a loooooooong time!
  • On your lips you can easily get 6 to 8 hours of wear. At no point do your lips feel dry, in fact they stay nicely moisturized.
  • It is a versatile product that can be applied everywhere (altough given the peppermint oil added I would not apply on the eyes) and mixed with other colors to create your own unique shade
  • It feels as good as it looks, thanks to a formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E
  • Comes with a mini lip brush to apply with more precision

I have applied less than the recommended amount to have more of a stain rather than the full amount. As you can see you get a bit of satin finish and a sheer amount of color

when unsing a tiny bead, as instructed, this is the opacity of the color. With softer lighting, you get a truer red. Even with this light you see a good amount of coverage!

What’s not so good about it

  • Takes some time getting used to the application and you have to be careful not to overdo it. Too much will cause the color to feather (which is not a good look)
  • given the amount of pigment and the fact this is a red color, you will have a mild stain after wearing (and it will be on your fingers should you apply or touch up with them). It washes away with soap and water or makeup remover

The pictures below show the product (to have an idea on it’s 10 ml content size) and the amount required to cover the lips. As you can see, one tiny drop will give you a nice opaque finish!

Overall, I’m extremely happy with this product and can definitely recommend. I will be always reviewing new shades, so stay tuned for more!
