OCC Nylon Lip Tar
OCC Nylon Lip Tar

Does It Get Any Brighter Than This?

OCC Nylon Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “neon pink.” This color is electric–it’s absolutely a bold, bright neon pink with subtle blue undertones. I really think this is the brightest pink I own. MAC Dear Diary is darker, less bright. MAC Candy Yum Yum is a bit more magenta and less bright but comes the closest.

OCC’s Lip Tars are supposed to have the wear of a lipstick with the ease of a gloss–long-wearing, lightweight, and satin-matte in finish.  Nylon is insane. It’s blindingly bright.  True to form, a little goes a long way for opaque color coverage.  There is a learning curve with Lip Tar, but if you apply with a brush, you’ll learn quickly and easily. It’s just such a pigmented formula that if you over-apply, you’ll end up with too much product, which will end up on your teeth and will be prone to feathering.

The texture is a creamy liquid, not so thin that it’s watery, but not thick or heavy. On the lips, it feels lightweight and sets after a couple of minutes to the satin-matte finish (initially, it may look a wee bit glossy, depending on how much product you’ve applied).  When I wore this, it lasted for eight and a half hours–and there was still a pink-y stain left behind.  (It stained my arm when I did a swatch for it, and it couldn’t have been on my arm for longer than a few minutes.)  It lasted through a meal and two coffees. The best part, aside from the awesome wear, was that it wasn’t drying.

Quick note: this launches tomorrow on Sephora, so you won’t see it up ’til then. :)
