Now In Stores | OCC Lip Tars at Sephora

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics‘ infamous Lip Tars have launched at Sephora, so I thought I’d dedicate a post to them. The Lip Tars retail for $16 USD/$19 CAD, and come with a Short-Handled Precision Lip Brush for precise, opaque coverage.

(In case you’ve been living under a rock: the OCC Lip Tars are essentially super-pigmented lipstick-gloss hybrids, made to be mixed and blended to your heart’s content. They go on like a gloss but dry down to a satin finish, and work best when applied sparingly.)

Not all Sephora stores will be carrying the line, but all of the shades are available online here at

Americans, use code TRY6 with any $25+ purchase for six free deluxe skincare samples, or CANDY for a deluxe-sized sample of Prada Candy (one of my top picks for a light autumnal fragrance.)

Canadians, use STILABB with any $35+ purchase for a free deluxe sample of Stila’s new BB cream, EXTEND for a deluxe sample of Living Proof Prime Style Extender, or WOW for a free Benefit Hello Flawless! Oxygen Wow sample (choose from 9 shades).

You’re welcome. *takes a bow*

One of these days, I’m going to figure out how to put together posts like this without taking hours. It’s not like you can eyeball all of these images; no one’s that exact! (Not even I Especially not I.)

But, without further adieu, images of the entire OCC Lip Tar range, painstakingly sorted by shade.

  • You are amazing, Rae. Now that they come with brushes I'm much more tempted. Even though I'm still aware of how rarely I'd use the damn thing, just because I'm lazy. Still. They are pretty to look at, no?

    • :D

      (They really are! And having a pound + lip brush does a lot to sway me in their favour, too.)

  • My Lucite Dreams

    I love these! I love the new packaging with brush. Let me say that I appreciate your sorting these by color, it is so helpful and I will be using this for reference :-) bookmark.. I have Devine and jus picked up Demure, can't wait to pick up some more

    • Glad to hear it, hon! :) Demure looks so gorgeous in all of the photos I've seen it in — it's on my list of shades to check out, too!

  • I think I am one of the (actually very) few people that don't like those D: I don't know what it is but I am just not blown away. They have some pretty colours though and I find the idea very nice, that they come with brushes now.

  • ahh i want to try these sososo bad :)

    Sophierosehearts x

    • Same here ;) I'm just hoping our Sephora will get them in sometime this year or next!

  • This post must've took you forever but its great and looks so pretty! I have 2 of the OCC lip tars and I can't say I'm in love. I like how they glide on, but I feel like they are tricky to apply without being too full on, and I can't stand the smell! Good to see it comes with a brush now, hopefully that makes it easier to apply

    • :D Thank you, Vida! (It really did, so I'm ridiculously glad to hear you guys are liking it.)

      I think the brush is going to be really helpful for most people — though I suppose it can't really do anything for the smell.

  • Amy

    Holy, holy cow, Rae, this is awesome. These are definitely on my to-try list; thanks for sorting them so wonderfully!

  • oh, I think it's due to the packaging and the one I tried was very drying on me. I think I am just not a fan of those tube things, I prefer lipsticks or liquid lipsticks with a doe foot applicator :)

    • Sorry to hear that! :( These are made to be applied quite sparingly, which I think is why they changed the packaging — a doe foot (or even their old angled tip) would apply too much product!

    Ok this was really helpful and I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the shades in pigment order!
