OCC Mosh Lip Tar/RTW
OCC Mosh Lip Tar/RTW

OCC Mosh Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “brick burgundy metallic.” It’s a deep, reddish burgundy with fine copper/gold shimmer and a natural sheen. It was richly pigmented with a light-medium weight consistency that had some slip, which I found caused feathering after four hours of wear (though the color itself was still going strong after six hours). I was impressed at how even it applied, as darker shades (especially when liquid or slippery) tend to apply poorly. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Too Faced Chocolate Cherries (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Acoustic (P, $15.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Tribalist (LE, $19.50) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Mixtape (P, $15.00) is cooler (85% similar). Bite Beauty Truffle (P, $24.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Metal Dahlia (DC, $18.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar).

OCC Stud Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is described as a “greyed aubergine matte.” It’s a dark, muted purple with a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage with a light-medium-weight consistency–it was one of the thicker shades on the collection–that applied smoothly and evenly. The color was still going strong after six hours of wear, and the formula was a little drying after seven hours of wear. Too Faced Melted Villain (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Guess (P, $6.50) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Illamasqua Kontrol (P, $24.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Feminist (LE, $6.00) is darker, less glossy (85% similar). Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan (DC, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker, less glossy (85% similar). Bite Beauty Kohlrabi (DC, $24.00) is brighter (85% similar). MAC Gunner (LE, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Bite Beauty Black Truffle (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter (80% similar).

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.

OMG, Both super cool shades! My OCC wish list is getting super long! I feel like something like Stud actually may do better with a liner/brush . Is it possible to get a brush in into the RTW tube Christine?

Both are on my wishlist!!! I have a thing for very dark lipstick shades. Especially so when the colors are more wearable for a not so young person! Yes, I do believe that even living here in a vastly more conservative-minded state, I can rock BOTH without incurring too many sideways stares! ?

Mosh is like a metallic version of the new Too Faced Melted Chocolate Cherries. Gorgeous! Stud is amazing, too. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a dark purple with so much gray to it. Stunning and unique.

What didn’t you like about the original ones? The formula itself is very much the same, but the packaging is really the difference.

How does Mosh compare to Black Metal Dahlia? I already have BMD and Mosh is gorgeous but I don’t necessarily need it if it’s too similar.

These are not colors I would wear, but they are certainly beautiful! I need to get myself at least one Lip Tar, but there are just so many options!

I’m really glad that they put the lip tars in tube form. They were kind of a pain before because touching up meant I had to get the lip brush out and it was inconvenient. I love their formula though because it’s so smooth over the lips. I wonder why sephora stopped carrying them.

OMG, that dusty greyed purple is really hot. I am adding that to my wishlist. Mosh is a gorgeous color too, looks really lovely on you Christine! I don’t really go for metallic finishes, but this one is tempting.
