OCC Lip Tars

This week I purchased one of the Selfridges Lucky Bags, you can read that review here. and I was lucky enough to receive two OCC Lip Tars in my bag. 

OCC are a brand that isn't readily available in the UK, but has recently made its way into the British market. Selfridges stock OCC in the Beauty Hall in London and online, and some online retailers in the UK also stock them at a reasonable price. You can also find them on eBay but they are slightly more expensive due to international shipping.

A brand that offers only vegan and cruelty free products, their ethical stance has really made an impact in the world of cosmetics. Not only are their products all round good apples, they are also the most pigmented products I have ever come across in my life!!

Here are the two shades that I got...

First up is Demure:

The application of this was really messy, I think if I were going to use these properly I would have to use a smaller lip brush as the bristles on the one I used are a little too long. 
Demure is a lovely bright pink with hints of plum, perfect for all year round. I wore this today with just my regular foundation and mascara so I had a clean makeup look with a pop of colour. 

The Second shade was Pennyroyal:
This was the second shade that I received and I was really scared to wear this, as it really doesn't match my skin tone. But actually once on the lips it doesnt look as bad as I thought it would. I don't think I would wear this out, but I would definitely mix this with another cooler colour to perhaps warm it up.

 Finally, this is the two of them mixed together. This shade I am in love with and think its perfect for everyday pop of colour. This is just one drop of each colour but could of course be modified to suit your skin tone.

Overall, I love everything about these products, from the amazing pigmentation to the subtle mint smell and will definitely be adding more to my collection.

Do you have any of these products? What's your favourite shade?


  1. I love the colour of 'Demure', and I love how you mixed them both together that colour is lovely.
