Though I was late to join the crowd, I now love Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars. I was very excited when I saw on twitter that they would be sold in Sephora starting in September. I was even more excited to learn that to celebrate going big, OCC had partnered with Nylon Magazine, one of a few magazines that I have a subscription to because of their cool content, to make a new neon pink lip tar called Nylon. Nylon lip tar is only being sold at Sephora. If you're unfamiliar with lip tars, they're sort of like a liquid lipstick. They're very concentrated! You only need the tiniest amount of product to cover your entire lips. Like, about half the size of the head of your lip brush, or smaller, should be enough to cover your entire lips.They're moisturizing but dry down to a satiny matte finish. While Lip Tars come in a wide variety of shades that can be worn individually, they can also be mixed to make your perfect signature color. Lip Tars:
- 100 % vegan and cruelty-free
- Contain no silicone, petroleum or parabens
- Hemp Oil: Rich in omega and gamma-lineolic essential fatty acids; extraordinarily moisturizing.
- Peppermint Oil: A natural antibacterial and antimicrobial agent that allows OCC to create a product free of parabens and other synthetic preservatives.
- Tocopherol Acetate: Rich in antioxidants; highly moisturizing.
I think Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nylon Lip Tar is perfect on my skintone.
Additionally, I swatched it next to LE MAC Candy Yum Yum. The two colors are very close. Candy Yum Yum is the closest match that I have in my color collection. If you missed out on MAC Candy Yum Yum, you may want OCC Nylon.
I'm very happy that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars will now be easy to purchase from Sephora. They're a great product once you get the hang of them. I also love the special color Nylon! Collaborating with a cool magazine is a great way to celebrate an awesome vegan indie company making it into the mainstream market.
OCC Nylon Lip Tar is available for $16, only from Sephora.com
