OCC Chlorophyll Lip Tar

OCC Chlorophyll Lip Tar ($14.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “full-on teal.” It’s a green-based teal. Not unsurprising, but I don’t have a ready dupe suggestion for you. Illamasqua Apocalips is much, much bluer. Chlorophyll has a strong green pull. It also has a lightly glossy finish, and while it’s plenty pigmented, the liquid-like texture does cause it to settle into lip lines.  The glossiness will fade after a half hour or so, and you can blend out the color a bit more, because it gets drier, so it won’t pull into the lip lines as much.  It can take a little practice to get the hang of Lip Tars, but their major selling point–to me–is their longevity, because the wear can be anywhere from six to ten hours, depending on the shade and how much it stains.

OCC’s Lip Tars just got a packaging revamp: they now come in clear, matte tubes with more of a needle-nose applicator, so you can get more precise applicator or squeeze out less product at once.  I like the matte finish to the packaging.  I never had a problem with the slanted tip from before, but I can see these being more practical and useful overall!  For best results, I recommend a lip brush, because you can apply as little as you really need, rather than attempting to use whatever has been squeezed out of the tube.  These can be easy to over-apply, because the formula is so very pigmented.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) Chlorophyll Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant teal/green” that is opaque and has a satin finish. It’s being repromoted with OCC’s spring/summer Garden collection, but it has already been part of the permanent range for some time. It’s a really green-teal with a finish that looks like a cream to me. MAC Ocean Dip is much more of a blue-teal. Essie Turquoise & Caicos is closer but lighter.  There was nothing that I could think of that came close enough to this to even be considered similar, let alone a dupe.

Chlorophyll was opaque in two coats, though it was almost opaque in one for me.  It has a balanced consistency–not too thick or too thin–that allowed for even, streak-free application without bubbling or pooling.  OCC’s formula wears a week on me with minor tip wear and no chipping.  Of the shades launching for their upcoming collection, Chlorophyll was one of my favorites.
