So Intense: OCC Lip Tar RTW in Black Metal Dahlia

I remember the excitement around OCC when their revolutionary Lip Tars came to the UK back in 2010 - their stand at IMATS sold out almost immediately, so keen for intense pigmentation were we.  Since then, they've added millions of new shades, a set of metallic shades, been and gone from Sephora, and launched Lip Tar RTW - a version which comes in a tube for more portable application.

I LOVE the new RTW format.  The product within is the same insanely pigmented fluid which dries down into a slightly glossy, full on finish, and the packaging, complete with doe's foot applicator, makes it much easier to apply the stuff without faffing about with a brush.  Bravo, OCC, bravo, for taking what was fundamentally an artist's product and bringing it to a more consumer-friendly format without watering down the product.

Also:  Black Metal Dahlia, eh?  This is one of the vampiest, deepest, most LOOK AT ME lip products I own, and I bloody love it.  Granted, it takes some careful application to get a clean finish, and you really need to be careful to use only a tiny dab to avoid a sticky mess.  I also find that because the colour is so intense, it bleeds a little into the tiny lines around my lips - a clear lipliner applied just outside the lipline solves that easily.

At £13.25, you're getting a whole lot of punchy lip for your money - Lip Tar goes a long way, so you'll find yourself using the little tube for a long, long time before needing to replace it.  And it's much less likely to make a mess of your makeup bag than the originals.  Highly recommended!
