I bought my OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) lip tars just over a week ago and since i'm a lover of lip products i couldn't wait to review them! I bought two of their matte finishes as i am loving a matte lip at the moment, i got the shades 'Femme' which is more of a spring/summer shade and 'Memento' which is a definate autumn/winter shade. I purchased them via BeautyBay.com they retail in the uk around £12 - £15 depending on which site you buy them through.
So first of all i noticed the packaging and they each came in a small zip up bag with a very handy travel size brush which is perfect to help you apply your lip tar. The second thing i noticed was the size of the actual product and for some reason i don't know why i thought they would be bigger, you get 10ml of product and after using it once i realised that 10ml is more than enough as you only need the smallest ammount so these will last me quite a while as they are extreemly pigmented! i then noticed the smell and i was very surprised, they have a really nice peppermint scent to them which is refreshing for me because i feel like every lip product nowadays smells like vanilla!
The only thing i would say about the matte finish is that i expected it to go on shiny which it does and then i expected it to dry quite quick so i would say that if you are after a definate matte lip these might not be for you as they do they do take a little while to go matte and even then they turn into more of a lip stain, however saying that! i do like them and i love to wear them with a lip liner underneath as i prefer a bold lip on me.
Conclusion! i would definatley buy more of these as i am impressed and im sure ill find more colours that i like as they have so many shades from pinks to purples to blues and even black!
