OCC Metallurgy for Holiday 2012

After three years of intensive product development, OCC is proud to introduce a whole new breed of Lip Tar. Infused with state of the art hi-resolution metallic pigments, the unparalleled opacity has gone high-voltage electric with a reflective shimmer finish.

Since its launch in 2009, OCC fans worldwide have been clamoring for a metallic-finish Lip Tar. To match that demand OCC looked to the natural foods movement to find a mineral-derived ingredient to keep the highest-opacity metallic pigments in a luxurious, weightless suspension. The result? A Lip Tar formula that requires even less product than ever before! Remember: a little goes a long, strong way!

PRO TIP: Apply the smallest possible bead of LIP TAR with our Precision Lip Brush for an unparalleled metallic finish in a fully opaque yet lightweight layer of smooth and hydrating lip perfection polish! Want even more shine? Add a thin layer OCC ‘Clear’ Lip Tar, also the perfect primer, overtop of your metallic Lip Tar lip look.

  • Triptych True 24K metallic gold
  • Authentic Full strength copper metallic
