A bit tricky to apply need a lip brush plus lip liner helps, I'm not crazy of the berry color but my biggest gripe transfers to easy so somehow end up with some on my chin or what ever I lightly touch..

I went crazy and bought every color when Sephora had their 50% off sale a couple years ago. Big mistake! I never used most of the colors which were way too pigmented and boldly colored. They were very messy too use and always leaked. I tried making lipsticks using some of the purples and EOS lip bams, but ended up throwing those away too. They need to change both the formula and packaging for these.

Polishes -Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics -Kava Kava

on 2/27/2017 9:32:00 PM

This was actually a pleasant surprise. I bought this during a sale where if I bought a Lip Tar I basically got a nail polish for free. I bought three different Lip Tars, so I got matching polishes for all of them. I was actually expecting NOT to like Kava Kava, and just took it to try. Man, am I happy I did! It's my favorite nail polish color across all brands.

Kava Kava is a nice pearly, rose-gold color. It goes well with so many looks, and it's a very subtle color. The staying power on this color is also great. I found it was actually really hard to chip. I like to wear this color if I want my nails to look nice, but I don't want the color to be too distracting.

This is one of the few reds I will wear. I love that it's a true red. It doesn't have an orange undertone. The staying power is amazing on this, and a little goes a long way. The only downside to this product is that it is super drying as you wear it.

I purchased this is "Rise" a color exclusive to Hautelook. In the photo this appeared to be a nude warm light pink with dimension and very wearable. In reality this is a light cool mauve pink that really wants to be nude pink that IMO flatters no one. First off, I could not find a swatch image anywhere which should have been a red flag. I didn't listen. Then I read many, many OCC Lip Tar reviews and sorted the positive with the negative. MY experience is entirely negative. The packaging is really low budget looking and not something I'd be thrilled to pull out in public. The doe foot applicator is utilitarian and does not apply adequate product to cover my lips, which requires 2 layers to get acceptable coverage. The scent is light but chemical and does not last. This formula is awful, does NOT set and smears ALL over my lips and then some. I always line my lips and after my non greasy dinner of spaghetti squash and risotto my lips and surrounding skin looked like I was inebriated. I was grateful I didn't apply a deep red as that would have been a downright frightening visual. This radical smearing has never happened to me in my adult lifetime and never with what is supposed to be a long wearing lipstick. The worst was yet to come. I have no clue what is in this formula but I ended up with inflamed red lips after removing this lip tar. I didn't experience itching or weeping at all, just rabid red inflammation that was apparent once removed. My intention was to remove this and reapply after eating to see how long lasting the formula. I didn't need to do any of that. I informed Hautelook of my allergy and a refund was issued. I have no intention of revisiting OCC or any other product in the line.

I bought one of these in a nude-pink when I first saw them a few years ago. I assume the reason they're still around is that people are mixing them with other products because on it's own it's the only product that's ever bled on me. Nasty goopy mess.
Also, this and a cream pigment I've got from OCC smells like melting crayons...or expired lipstick. Like really expired. I'm willing to attribute that to the fact that all OCC products are organic and vegan, but I don't personally care about that so much, and they fall short in all other areas too.

I bought one of these in Fleshworld. The pigmentation is great but that's where the good points end. The smell is awful and it sticks around without fading much over time. The lipstick bleeds outside the lip worse than I've ever seen unless you try very hard to use the tiniest amount of product around the edges. A lip liner is pretty much a necessity. The product never fully dries down and will continually transfer through out the wear. I don't find that this feels nearly as drying as a lot of other liquid lipsticks but still, you can find a better quality long lasting lip product at the drug store for half the price.

I've really tried to make this work, but I find this product impossible to use. It doesn't dry down, it stays extremely wet and slippery and running a huge risk of smearing all over - more so than any regular old lipstick. If blotted away the stain is very faint, uneven and weird-looking, and certainly not long-lasting. The smell is horrendously chemical and makes me feel uneasy about putting it on my lips at all. I even feel like my lips tingle a bit when using it, which I don't want to experience from a product unless it's specifically said to plump your lips. In this product it feels like a bad sign.

I have the shade called Grandma, described as a "clean classic coral" on the website. Weirdly enough, it looks a lot different in the bottle and on the lips, despite the clear bottle that I thought would give you a good idea about the shade. It's bright as hell, and I certainly wouldn't call that look neither clean nor classic.

It goes on extremely streaky on my lips, and when trying to touch up the patchy parts it just moves the lip tar around. Especially near the inside of my lips it just won't stick and it'll end up looking extremely weird and patchy already on application, not to mention after wearing it for a while. If I blot it off once and then go in with another layer it helps slightly, but it doesn't solve the problem in any way. My lips were exfoliated, smooth and moisturized when I put this on, but when I removed it mere hours later they were dry and flaky.

The only good thing I have to say about this product is that it's vegan and cruelty free. Other than that, it's just a straight up bad product.

I have this product in the shade Memento, which is a warm nude - a lovely mix of brown and pink. It's currently my most used lip product for both the finish and the colour.

The product is so pigmented(!!!) and the finish is quite glossy. The only problem I had with it was that it bled after a while, and I felt like a clown with the product smearing out of my lip lines. But I found a solution to it which ensures no bleeding and longer wear. I put one layer on and lightly press a tissue between my lips to remove the excess (especially on the edges of the lips). Then, I add another layer on but avoiding the edges of the lips. This lasted me a whole night through drinks and food.

I wouldn't say it's drying, but I wouldn't say it's moisturising either. I'm quite neutral with it and I think it depends on the state that your lips are in when you wear it. I absolutely love it though, and it makes for a nice natural look. I wear it every time I have a professional event going on. I'm looking forward to try the other shades because I love this one so much!

Contour -Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics -Contour cream -John Doe

on 4/3/2016 11:53:00 PM

I am very fair and natural looking cream (and powder) contour products are tough to find. John Doe is pretty damn close (especially when set with NYX Taupe or Sephora Collection Eyeshadow Skinny-Dipping or Scented Candle), but on my skin this one shows up just a touch green-grey, and I believe a more purple-grey mimics a natural shadow on me better. Still so much better than all those warm, orangy-brown "contour" products out there.

A tip for fair folks - go into Sephora an swatch a bunch of taupe grey green and purple matte shades, the ones that look muddy or dirty aren't your true "hollow" shade, the one that looks like a true shadow is the right one, don't get scared by the colour (my best contour is by far the purple grey Skinny Dipping). I promise you won't be sorry!

Pigment is great
Wears for a long time

Application is terrible
Doesn't dry so if your lips accidentally touch your clothes or hands it'll transfer
Lips starts to peal dry skin
Bleeds even with a lip pencil
Separates so easily after a little bit of time inside the bottle

This product isn't for me..

Concealer worked well for me as far as color and coverage, but something in it caused me to break out. The packaging upset me because the plastic was thin and the cover's edges started cracking within a few days. Not for me.

This is such a fun, long-wearing red and it feels good, too! The red is opaque and not specifically cool or warm on me; I think it's supposed to be a bit neutral-to-cool. It wears for a long time without being dry, even though it finishes matte. The worst thing for me, consistently, had been the application process, as the very thin liquid lipstick is messy and wastes product. There's new, easier to use packaging for 2015 and it seems pretty awesome.

I bought this hoping for a berry color like it seemed to be in the tube. I was disappointed to see that it came out a bright fuchsia color. Application gets messy unless you use the tiniest amount of product possible. The product also does not dry quickly, which can make it messier. It did not blend well and layering did not change the color any. The only positive I can say for this product is that I got a heavy discount on it.
