Hey Everyone! I wanted to do a quick post about the OCC Lip Tar in the shade Cha Cha. It is the only OCC Lip Tar I own and I’ve wear it probably 5 out of 7 days a week. I’ve seen a lot of discussions about this particular shade, and many say that it is not a “wearable” color. So, I thought I’d post a few swatches of what is wearable and what is not. If you’d like to refer back to my original review, you can click here.
This is the lip tar applied directly out of the tube. The color is extremely bright and very opaque.. and I agree to many claims that Yes, this is not very wearable. But that goes for any pigmented lip color. For instance, MAC “Myth” applied very heavily is a complete disaster.. but applied thin (or blotted), it is the perfect nude. Nude/pale and light colors shouldn’t be applied heavily.
It may not look bad.. It’s actually a gorgeous peachy pink. But in person, it is very opaque (you can’t see my lips at all through the lip tar) and neon. It actually looks like I applied acrylic paint to my lips. You would definitely get some looks if you walked out of the house with this applied heavily (straight from the tube) on your lips.
But! Once you blot off your lips with a tissue…
You will be left with a shade much more wearable… (What a difference!)
Just add your favorite gloss on top.. (Otherwise having a very thin layer of lip tar feels very dry). I like to wear any sheer shades of pink/peach/coral.. or a glimmer gloss.
Here I have LASplash Girl Crush Lip gloss on top.
Hope this helped anyone that’s unsure of this shade! 🙂
