OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) Lip Tars, are probably one of the coolest things ever created. They come in tiny tubes, and it gives very concentrated rich, pigmented color with just the tiniest dallop. The ones I have are of the old package variety, now they don't have the big caps and are a little longer/streamlined because the tip of the applicator has changed. Any hoo, the product is still top notch. You can buy them from Sephora or from the source directly, and it retails for $16 (they used to be cheaper, stupid inflation). Now the colors I'll review are of the "normal" variety, but the whole purpose of these lip tars is that you can custom mix your colors, as well as use the product as is. For that reason there are pure pigment lip tars available as well. I mean yellow, green, black, blue, etc. I'm thinking of dabbling in those mixing colors in the future, I just haven't taken the plunge yet.

The color choices as hinted above are varied and many. There are even matching nail polishes for some of these colors. Also by the ability to be easily mixed, the potential color variations are truly endless. OCC also makes new colors for each new season. They're are soon coming out with metallic colors!!!! Last, but not least, you can keep track of the color since the name is printed on the back of the tube along with the ingredients.
Hand swatches below indicate the amount of product needed for the lips (itty bitty). The product isn't watery as it appears with the swatch on the far right. I had lotion or something on my hand and the color bled. On the lips there are no feathering issues. The colors in order from right to left are: Trollop, Anime, Grape (I think, I'll explain later), Pageant, Grandma, Memento (which is a great movie, btw).
