OCC Lip Tars are formulated with peppermint oil, which I suspect is added as a preservative to make a paraben-free product. A lot of people love the minty feeling of peppermint oil, but it can be irritating to my lips if I'm having a bad eczema day. I took kind of a risk trying these (I like to live dangerously) but luckily didn't have any problems with it.
|Androgyne, New Wave, Dekadent|
It looks uneven/dark in some areas, but this is mainly because of the uneven pigmentation of my lips showing through the sheer gloss. It applies okay but takes some work to even out. If you want more of a sheer magenta lip, then Dekadent is nice, but it's not what I was hoping for.
