OCC Derelict Lip Tar/RTW
OCC Derelict Lip Tar/RTW

OCC Derelict Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “patinated olive gold metallic.” It’s a smoky, dirty olive green with warmer, light-medium olive gold shimmer. It’s not a duochrome, but it almost appears that way, because of how the shimmer sits in the base and catches the light. It is much cooler in person, I think. It had smei-opaque coverage and applied unevenly, which was my biggest gripe with it. I think this one would benefit from applying with a lip brush, blotting lightly, and then applying a second layer for fuller coverage. The color wore well for six and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Sephora Backstage (60) (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (85% similar). NYX Trickery (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

OCC Disintegration Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “pale, plum lavender metallic.” It’s a light-medium, muted lavender with neutral-to-cool undertones and a fine pearl sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff that applied with smooth, even coverage with little fuss. The color wore well for five and a half hours on me, and it was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Ionized (LE, $25.00) is darker, glossier (90% similar). MAC Beauty (LE, $19.50) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Double Spin (LE, $19.50) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Restrict (LE, $19.50) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Mlle (LE, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Bubblegum Bloom (965) (LE, $7.49) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). MAC Weekend 1 (LE, $19.50) is lighter (85% similar). MAC You're Perfect Already (LE, $18.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Notice Me (LE, $19.50) is lighter, warmer, glossier (80% similar). Kat Von D Requiem (P, $20.00) is darker, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA SUMMARY | OCC Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, pigmented liquid lipstick. The formula is light-to-medium in weight with some shades with a thinner or thicker consistency. As you might expect, the thinner ones tend to have sheerer coverage, though the average Lip Tar is semi-opaque to intensely opaque (like the smallest amount is needed to get opaque coverage). The Metallic shades tend to be thinner and have more slip compared to the cream ones. The formula is sometimes drying, sometimes just not drying. The formula is mint-scented but has no discernible taste. The new Lip Tar/RTW comes with a doe-foot applicator, which makes it easier to apply from the tube than the original Lip Tars.

I got Derelict and Robohoochie about an hour ago from OCC’s website. Derelict reminded me of Mugatu’s campaign in Zoolander so OF COURSE I had to get it. It’s so hot right now.

All I can think of is Zoolander, too. It’s one of my all-time favorites! I love the color but I don’t think I would ever wear it, sadly.

Just going to tempt you with Facet nail varnish by Illamasqua… Might put that on this evening actually now I’ve remembered it 😀

And yes, that gloss colour is amazing, just not for me.

OMG Derelict is beautiful! It seems like it’s hard to work with though… I still might just get it! Do these transfer, Christine? I have yet to try a lip tar.

I have a few of these on the way. May pick up the ones I missed as well. Of course I bought Derelict since it’s lavender goodness. Looks great on you!

Disintegration is going to make me look dead, but Derelict is so interesting! Not sure I can pull it off, but it’s like an eye shadow that became a lip color. I think it would look better on me if I applied more sheerly like a gloss or as a topper over a lipstain

I was waiting on your review of Derelict and I’ll definitely be getting it now! I have NYX Trickery but they’re different enough that I totally need them both 🙂

Wow! Derelict is such a gorgeous, unique color! I wasn’t expecting that grayish smokiness from the tube! Unfortunately, I think it would look awful on me, but cool to see such an unusual, but pretty, shade!

I ordered these and 2 more of the new collection on cyber Monday-but sad, mine have “shipped” but status hasn’t moved since Friday. I normally wear more traditional colors but Derelict was calling me!

Excited to see the rest of the collection! Derelict looked great on you! 🙂

Oh! Also, this may not be new for most, but something I did so I would use my older squeeze tube tars-I bought some lip gloss tubes from Amazon, mixed and squeezed them in the tubes. It was also super fun to make your own colors-that bright orange that I didn’t care for bug bought on clearance turned into such a pretty, coral pink mixed with other colors.

Derelict is one [email protected]$$ shade!!!! Not so sure I could pull it off as a straight up lipstick, BUT as a topper? I definitely believe that would work out for me!
Disintegration? Nope. It would look awful with my honey-olive skintone.

Derelict is a fun shade, though it probably wouldn’t suit my coloring as a lip color. I hope I have something similar in an eye palette somewhere, though, because it would be a great eye shade! 🙂

I was wondering the same thing, so I read the ingredient list and it does contain peppermint oil as a preservative so probably not eye-friendly. Too bad. Otherwise it would replace the Eye Tints. LOL.

I love the look of Disintegration, but it would wash me out completely, I might get away with it at a zombie party, perhaps.
Derelict, though is a must have. I don’t care if it will look good or bad on me, I love it!
I think I’m going to put some olive eueshados on my lips now!

i’ve always thought lip tar colors are so badass. being dreaming about technopagan for so long! girl you rock them. how do you manage that?!

Aww, thank you, Marissa! I really think it’s just easier to admire something unusual on someone other than ourselves in general!

Both are really great colors! I love Disintigration. But, I’m doubtful that I would wear it. But, so lovely in you and I could really see so many people rocking it. Derelict- that, I think I could pull off and Its maybe worth the hassle. I’m not nuts about lip tars. But, there are some awesome shades that just deserve mention. I think these are in that category. Thanks for calling them to my attention.:)

Sometimes it can be fun just to see them on others! If you wouldn’t wear ’em, skip for until there’s another you’d wear 😀

Derelict looks amazing! Liquid metal! Are you wear two coats of it in the photo?
Unfortunately, Lip Tars have been really inconsistent for me. I have a tube of Technopagan which is extremely thick and it wears like iron, but my tube of Black Dahlia is watery and awful and NEVER EVER dries down, even though it’s supposed to be matte. How does the formula in the new containers compare to the old tubes?

I don’t see how I could wear this in public but I love the color. It is a shade I have in eye shadow. I’m a fair neutral. What skin tones could pull this off in your opinion?

ugh I stopped buying lip tars because of how inconsistent the formulation is and then they go and release a color like derelict … I want it 🙁

i need derelict !!!

i think it might look awesome on top of a purple lip color .

i bought trickery , but i didn’t like it on me , AT ALL .

I too could only see Zoolander when I saw Derelict! It’s a very interesting color, I didn’t think I would like it as much as I do. It looks way more taupe on your lips than it does in the tube. I don’t know if I’d be able to do it but I LOVE it on you!

Put golden shimmer in any color and I’m all in! Derelict is off the charts pretty! You wear it so well, Christine! Nevertheless, I’m gonna restrain from purchasing it since I do have Trickery. I want it so bad though.

Both of these are really awesome and unusual lip colours in completely different ways, very fashion, edgy and badass. Derelict especially, wow, very nice! Too bad I can’t pull off a bold lip lol

Ok, I’m trying to save money here! I think you should close your business so I’m not temptaliad to buy anything. Sounds good? 😀

P.S. How do you pull off every single color?!

Omg Derelict Lip Tar is so going home with me. It reminds me of the rihanna viva glam II lipstick in that awesome metallic brown. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to replace it when I run out but now I feel much better. lol Yaaaayyy!
