OCC Belladonna Lip Tar

OCC Belladonna Lip Tar

OCC Belladonna Lip Tar ($14.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “ultra, ultra violet.” It’s purple–it’s a brightened medium-dark purple with subtle pink-red undertones. Not unsurprisingly, I could not think of any dupes out of these purple lipsticks. Illamasqua Fierce was the closest I could come up with, but it looks tame in comparison (ha, ha).  When I tested this shade for wear, it hung on for a very impressive eight hours, and it still looked pretty good then but noticeably worn.

It’s a liquid lipstick that is very, very pigmented! It may take a couple of applications to get used to just how much pigment is packed into this product. I like these applied best with a brush, because you can ensure you don’t over-apply the product (which isn’t what I did in the swatches–I applied with fingertips, so I did apply a bit more than I needed to). Lip Tars dry down to a semi-matte/satin finish, and it depends on how much you apply–I usually find that I get a slight sheen for fifteen to thirty minutes after application, but then it dries down to the satiny finish. If you apply just a sheer layer, you’ll have more of that semi-matte/satin finish from the get-go.
