Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set


      Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set has been on my Sephora wishlist for a while. Recently when I tried to place it in my online basket to finally purchase it, it was out of stock. I thought I had missed my window for this limited edition OCC set. The moment I saw that it was back in stock I ordered this without delay.


     This is my first foray into the world of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I’ve heard only good things. 100% Vegan. Gluten free. Cruelty free. Extremely pigmented, long-wearing and dries down to a semi-matte finish. I can only confirm all of these reports in the positive!


     OCC Lip Tars retail for $18 each and are always packaged with a mini lip brush to ease the application. I decided not to invest in the “Clear” Lip Tar that is recommended for priming the lips prior to application of other shades of Lip Tar so that I could test these out beforehand. Although the name, Lip Tar, implies that the formula may have a sticky or tacky feel, these actually go on super smooth as well as feel super lightweight on my lips. The provided lip brush is the perfect design for precise application.


      For those of you who are on the fence about trying OCC Lip Tars, I think the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set is the way to go. Although $49 for this cleverly packaged set may seem like a big investment in trying a new product, the savings make up for it. If you were to buy these 5 shades individually at $18 a piece, it would cost you $90. They even through in an expertly designed full size lip brush instead of the standard mini that comes with individual lip tars.

     Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set includes the shades “Pretty Boy”, “Stalker”, “Vintage”, “Grandma”, and “Melange”.

Swatching these heavily pigmented lip products have left little stain lines on my arm. You may need makeup remover to fully take off the darker shades. They apply super glossy and eventually dry down to a semi-matte texture. Highly recommended! I will be adding more to my collection!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set retails for $49 and is available for a limited time at Sephora and Sephora.com.
