OCC Lip Tar in Strange & Unusual


I had purchased this lipstick a while back, but haven’t been able to post it. I actually have a few of these OCC Lip Tar RTW on my wishlist. I started off with one to see how I like it. Here are my thoughts!

I decided to start with the shade Strange & Unusual. It’s described as a metallic darkroom plum. It’s probably one of the most beautiful metallic lip shades I own. Next to the ColourPop Ultra Metallic Lip in Surprise that I recently purchased. It’s surprisingly very wearable. It looks way more metallic in the photo, but that’s probably because of the lighting and flash. I assure you it’s not that shiny in person.

It applied beautifully. I didn’t have to go in with a brush. It applied perfectly fine with the applicator alone. It does have a minty scent which I don’t really care for, but after a little while I hardly notice it. It’s not transfer-proof so I did have to touch up after eating and drinking. But touching up was easy. It wasn’t drying. In fact it made for one of the most comfortable wears ever! I really like how it felt on my lips. Some of the other metallics I’ve tried have felt a little heavy. This is surprisingly lightweight. You can see Strange & Unusual in action below!

I’ve worn this quite a bit throughout Fall. This is probably going to be the first liquid lipstick I finish entirely. I’ll definitely be purchasing more. I have my eye on Pagan, Lydia, Strumpet, and Synth. I’ll be picking those up soon!

Have you tried any of the OCC Lip Tar RTW? Which ones have you tried?
