Red Lips and OCC Lip Tar

Are you afraid of wearing red lipstick?  Join the club.  I never wore red lipstick because I didn't think it looked good on me... and it takes a lot to pull off a red lipstick.. or so I thought.

When I was at Empire Beauty School, my sensei Orlando Santiago had come back from the Makeup Show in L.A.  There he was introduced to a new line called OCC Cosmetics.  Created by the awesome David Klasfeld, OCC Lip Tar was a new lip color line that Orlando brought back to the Empire Beauties.  He explained that there was this crazy new red color that he loved that we all had to try. 

Say Hello to OCC Lip Tar in NSFW.  This is the ultimate red that looks good on everyone.  If you have tried reds that you never felt looked right... you have found the right one in NSFW.  This is a bright red that is just as beautiful and glamorous as you can get.

OCC Lip Tar-A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, OCC Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment, so a little goes a very, very long way. An intense yet featherweight layer of color that stands up to the scrutiny of Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Meant to be mixed, OCC Lip Tars come in concise range of colors (and black and white!) for a limitless selection of shades made by you!

Like all of our products, OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. A simple, elegant formula that contains Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil and Vitamin E, OCC Lip Tar feels as good on the lips as it looks!
Retail Price: $12.50

I love products that not only look great, but don't contain harsh chemicals.

When using the OCC Lip Tar, use VERY sparingly!!!  The pigment is very intense, so you only need the slightest amount. Better to layer if necessary.  Be very careful when putting this on because it takes a little bit to dry, but once it's set... it stays on. and on. and on.  I do recommend a lip brush do get the most precise look.. or else you can look like Courtney Love circa the 90's.  Not too flattering.  Pop on some gloss after wards to really stand out and you are set to rule the world!

Another red I recommend is M.A.C.'s Russian Red

Retail Price: $14
Everyone can use a little bit of glamour in their life.  Swipe on some red lipstick, and you'll look and feel fabulous.  Think of all the beautiful women that rock the red~ Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Gwen Stefani.  It's definitely a bold look, but you can pull it off.  Don't be afraid ~ Come to the... ROSY side!
