After my first batch of OCC Lip Tar Swatches, I decided to let the artist in me come out and play. Following the basics of color theory, I used the primary colors – NSFW (primary red), Yellow Iron Oxide (mustard yellow) and RX (primary cyan blue) – along with Feathered (white), to create my very own shades. To start off, here are swatches of just RX and Yellow Iron Oxide as requested by you guys:

Since OCC Lip Tars are uber opaque as I mentioned in my review, I had to use three times as much of the white to lighten the color to make it more wearable. RX also seemed to stain my lips, skin and even teeth (yikes!) so using a brush for application and an oil-based remover is highly recommended.

What’s your favorite shade?

OCC Lip Tar is available at Sephora for $16.

  1. purple and green! the pastel like colours are gorgeous for the summer!

    • That’s exactly what I was thinking when I was mixing the colors =)

  2. I love RX. I’d be tempted to smear these Lip Tars on my eyes. O_o

    • Lol I don’t think these can be used on the eyes. They do stain the skin a bit and will most likely smear in seconds. You can try MUFE Flash Color instead.

    • Don’t do it, they have peppermint in them! It might give a nice tingle to lips but I doubt your eyes will be as pleased.

  3. I really like the last orange color!

    My tip for using Lip Tar: reverse lip liner (or a concealer stick that isn’t to thick and a brush). I put it on before hand as usual, but I’ll also use a little more after to touch up and create a cleaner line since lip tar feathers.

    Its my secret to perfect crisp red lips with NSFW :-)

  4. out of this colors i like Yellow Iron Oxide and OCC NSFW + Yellow Iron Oxide + Feathered Lip Tars

  5. My favourites are the yellow and the orange.

  6. as pre-caution noted in OCC website lip tars should not be use in eye area due to its peppermint content.

  7. I’m over here searching for Tar and Feathers for my World History class and I find this… this awesomeness.
    ._. Majorly awesome.
