Mixin’ Around With OCC Lip Tars + A Giveaway!

It’s been forever and 10 days since I’ve done something creative makeup-wise. Some beauty blogger I am, huh? Welllllls, through Coupons.com I was gifted with a $50 gift card to Sephora in hopes that I’d feature using one product or products and do multiple looks with them. I loves a challenge. I also have this extreme obsession with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics’ Lip Tars. I mean, look at ’em…

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pro's Picks Lip Tar Set v2.0

Sexy, ain’t they? Every few seasons OCC gives us a smashing deal of 5 Lip Tars for only $49. This is a crazy awesome deal because one Lip Tar usually costs $18. The Pro’s Picks Lip Tar Set v2.0 contains 5 unique shades that can be worn alone or mixed together to create your own shade.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tars(l-r)
Hoochie, Lydia, Pretty Boy, Iced and Kava Kava

Of course Hoochie is my favorite. That vibrant magenta is quite the stunner.

OCC Hoochie Lip Tar

I wanted to create two additional lip colors using good ole’ Hooch as my base.

OCC Lip Tar mixing

I had to use flash on the camera for a lot of these pics because Hooch is so hard to photograph. But wow…I love it.

I did some mixin’ with Hoochie and Pretty Boy and came up with this…

…and then I mixed Hoochie with Lydia and Iced.

OCC Lips

Iced alone is pretty magnificent. I can’t wait to find other ways to use that beautiful frosty white. 5 Lip Tars for $50 is such a great deal and I am so going to be looking out for their next season’s release. That’s what I love about Sephora. You can always find some awesome beauty deal that you aren’t able to find other places. Check out what my fellow beauty bloggin’ ladies have featured in our Coupons.com giveaway blog hop!

  • I love that you showed different looks with lip tars. And I’m jealous of your lips, they’re pretty amazing!

  • I really need to play with my OCC Lip tars! They look great on you!

  • Veronica Simms

    These seem like such an interesting product! I’d love to play around with them. How long do they last?

    • Brittany

      For hours! Even while eating and drinking. I’d say a good 4-5 tops. Not too bad!

  • Sephora hands down. Ironically, I’m most intrigued by the ULTA/MAC comparison Pink Sith posted, I’ve never used ULTA shadows before and I’ll definitely be taking a more serious look at them now.

  • Sephora, always! I like the Hoochie and Pretty Boy mix.

  • Lucy

    I would get the Sephora one! My fave look is with Hoochie and Pretty Boy =D Thanks for the giveaway!


    Ah the looks of OCC’s stuff is amazing’s! Would love to get my paws on some! ~Lilz ^-~

  • Jen

    Wow, that photo of Hoochie is freakin’ gorgeous! It looks amazing on you.

    I’d have to (always) go with Sephora. Although I’ve ordered from Ulta and Drugstore.com and really like them both too.

  • Farrah

    Gorgeous lippies you created:) I really like Hoochie and Pretty Boy.

  • Lisa Brown

    I can’t choose between Ulta and the Sephora coupon code, I like both places to shop at. I like OCC in Lydia, maybe mix it with Kava Kava for a look.

  • OK. In the least stalkerish least gay way possible I want to kiss your lips! Is that bad? Those OCC lip tars look amazing I think I need to invest in some more!

  • Lila

    I love your Hoochie+Lydia+Iced color,it’s great! Usually I’m an Ulta fan but I have yet to get my hands on any of the lip tars (I’m lusting after Nylon & Anime) so Sephora will be my next big makeup stop for sure

  • Jessie C.

    I would use Free benefit makeup bag with $25+ of Sephora. My favorite dupe idea is probably L’Oreal liquid foundation for Smashbox.

  • OMG I love your custom mixes! Hoochie is a favorite of mine.

  • I am OBSESSED with OCC’s Lip Tars. They are my absolute favorite lip product. Love the purples!

  • I would definitely use Sephora. One of my favorite stores! I love how you showed the lip tars. I have been wanting to try those for ages.

  • I love the purple!

  • Kelly

    Def. the sephora deal or even the macy’s one because then I could use products from a variety of different retailers–haaay!

  • Elena

    I would choose Sephora coupon

  • Kasey

    Gorgeous colors! I love how you mixed your lip tars and just shows how versatile they are for creating different looks! :)

  • Anne

    definitely sephora ^_^”

  • Great choices. I have a new OCC Lip Tar that I need to get out and start wearing. You really rock these colors!

  • Anjali

    I would use the diorlash coupon code for sephora! Love that mascara and the OCC lip tars are actually on my wish list!

  • Jana

    I’d use the Sephora code for the Benefit makeup bag. Each OCC Lip Tar color by itself looks kind of intimidating, but I love the idea of mixing them!! Need to release my inner artist!

  • Chris Taddei

    I would choose sephora or drugstore.com

  • SamV

    Ulta because it has a nice mix of drugstore and high end stuff

  • Love them, want them. Headed to Sephora!

  • Syreeta

    I would love to try one of them.

  • I LOVEEEE OCCs Lip Tar…I have the Nylon (it’s empty now) and I LOVE IIIT they last 5ever. I used a sample one day at the mall and I ate and even swiped my lips on accident but it was STILL holdin on!

  • Love these combos! I would definitely pick Sephora, and I’d do the benefit bag. Who doesn’t love benefit? I think ULTA is best for dupes, though, because it’s cheaper! 😀

  • Supriya

    I would use the codes for Sephora hands down, they have so many choices! Plus I love the lip look you created, I would want the ability to try that out for myself in Sephora!!

  • T.R.

    I’d use “Get a Free Deluxe Sample with $25+”

  • PecanPie

    so pretty on you

  • Amy

    They look good on you. I thought they were drying for my lips.

    • Brittany

      Try wearing a balm under them.

  • Love the tars, except I usually have dry lips and requires a lot of lip scrubs which irritate. Such a bummer… But I’m hoping those recent glossy ones would pan out better for me. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • I love lip tars! The new stained gloss is great also!!

  • Jessica

    I have been pondering giving these a try and I think this post has pushed me into the must try zone. As far as the coupon codes go, I’d use Sephora. I love Ulta too, but I’ve been a Sephora junkie for so long. Plus they’re the only shop I have in my city, and I don’t have the patience for shipping sometimes!

  • Amanda

    Love the lip tars! I would definitely use the sephora coupons

  • I love you combo choices. Great colors. “Pretty Boy” is my all time favorite Lip Tar. Give me Ulta or Sephora any day. Both are beauty havens!

  • Samantha

    Pretty Boy looks pretty cool, how would you compare it to Anime?

    • Brittany

      Not sure – I don’t have Anime (yet) but I think it’s far brighter.

  • Diane redcay

    I would use sephora never tried lip tars but would love too

  • Ada

    I just love how easily you make mix the perfect color for yourself!

  • I’ve heard SO much about the OCC lip tars. I got a hands on a couple at TMS chicago. I have hootchie and a new lip stain, tar. Love them. Maybe I’ll mix my colors together too!

  • Definitely Sephora and being that I’ve not gotten my hands on any Lip Tars yet I’m practically lusting for them.

  • Renee

    Ulta…because I have one near me :)

  • Angela

    I’d use the MAC code. They have some fierce colors too!

  • Mary

    I love how you mixed them! I just got strumpet and nylon and I was thinking about mixing them to get a more magenta-based bright pink, I’ll definitely try it now!

    • Mary

      and also I work at Ulta (I find some great dupes!) and so I’d probably pick some Sephora coupon codes and get me some more lip tars!

  • suzanne

    I would be interested to try the Devacurl sample at Sephora. I am always looking for a new curly hair product that works well!

  • Jenn L

    I would definitely go with Sephora!

  • jessica

  • Crystalyn

    OCC makes amazing products. Their liptars are my favorite. I also love that OCC is being sold at Sephora now.

  • Alyza

    Absolutely love the idea of being able to mix up a custom lip color and be totally unique!

  • Lyz H

    Sephora for sure, I’ve been dying to try lip tars for ages, I love that they carry them now.

  • Janet

    Ohhhh, Sephora! I need me some new makeup – ALL of it! I haven’t bought much of anything since my daughter was born… Um, 19 months ago. Due for a replacement!

  • Becca Z

    Ulta code 13314 would save $3.50 off a $10 purchase was the best code for Ulta.

    LOVE OCC Lip Tars!!! Love the purple shade on you

  • Stephanie

    I’m usually too lazy to even mix my lip tars, but they look so great on you!

  • Abbi W.

    Always Sephora! I placed 3 orders with them in the last week and I’ve taken advantage of quite a few of those codes, got the benefit bag, YSL mascara, new Dior cleansing oil,(got my B-Day gift this month too!), and def took advantage of the OPI summer sale for my polish hoard! The only Dupes I buy are the Sephora brand makeup, they have fantastic lippys, eyeliners, glosses, and mascaras (love those!)they all make great dupes for SO many other brands, VERY underrated in my opinion!

  • Angela

    I would use the “Free Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Deluxe Sample” code. I have had myeye on Laura Mercier for a while .

  • I love cruelty-free stuff!

  • The Sephora coupon deal for 50% off all Sephora by OPI products is great! You could use that to recreate some awesome nail art or manis I have seen around the blogiverse!

  • I would definitely choose Sephora…

  • I so would be at Sephora! The Pretty Boy/Hoochie look is fantastic, except I would use the Pretty Boy as my base. Those lip tars look like fun to play with!

  • janda

    YES!!!!! this is soo awesome. :)

  • Tiffany B

    I’ve been thinking of trying these, especially Hoochie, from Sephora! Now I really want to after seeing your mixtures!

  • TraciB

    I would use the free shipping on Sephora code.

  • Tabathia B
