As you can tell from the title, I have another review for you! This time it’s for an Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar. These Lip Tars are pretty popular, I know a lot of different YouTube beauty gurus use them and I just checked the Sephora website, and a lot of colors are out of stock!
What I love about this brand is that it is 100% vegan and cruelty-free. I could go on for days about my opinions of this, but I won’t bore you and I’ll shorten it by saying, I love OCC for being so amazing and thoughtful.
I have a matte Lip Tar in the shade Queen. With each Lip Tar you purchase, you also get a brush. Mine is dirty, because I used it today! Also, the Pink Pearl eraser is to give you an idea of the size of the product! Yes, it’s small, but a little bit of product goes such a long way!
To apply this product, I literally place the tube on my bottom lip and squeeze out a tiny bit of product. Then I use the brush that comes with it to spread the product around. Guys, you do not want to mess up the application of a Lip Tar. As you can see, it is incredibly pigmented and it’s almost like a stain, because it is really hard to get off!

The only problem I ran into was that it kind of caked up at that weird line on my lips. To make this go away I just used the brush that it came with and scrubbed the line until it disappeared. But other than that, the color stayed on awesome-ly!
[3 more hours later; 6 hours from time of application]
This product has lasted six hours of me talking and snacking and singing and drinking water! I even walked around in the rain for fifteen-ish minutes and it’s still all there! Also, I didn’t run into that line problem again! I guess scrubbing it with the brush helped! 🙂
Okay, the trouble really only comes with taking this Lip Tar off. I used Purity face wash and concentrated it on my lip area. After that I used a regular body soap and rubbed that around on my lips, too! Finally, I took the Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes and scrubbed my lips! This picture is right after my shower (that’s why my hair is wet! lol). And it’s a little hard to tell, but my lips are still somewhat pink-y from the product. I haven’t found the perfect method to completely remove this Lip Tar!
Also, I honestly think that if I had not have removed my makeup, the Lip Tar would still be going strong!
Overall, I give this product a HUGE thumbs up! The pigmentation is crazy! It looked just as good in the sixth hour of wear as it did when I first applied it! The only downfall (if you can even call it a downfall) is that it’s pretty much a stain. This means that you should be careful when applying it, because really, there’s no turning back once it’s on. Also, the tube is pretty small, but you really don’t need to use that much product to begin with, so I think it will last me a long time!
I hope you guys enjoyed this review! I actually had a lot of fun doing this! So if you have any another product you want me to try out, let me know! I would be more than happy to do that for you 🙂
Thank you so much for reading!
