OCC Lydia Review and Swatches

I’ve been lip product obsessed lately. I keep writing all about lipsticks and other lip products, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon so I hope you’re loving it!

I’ve been addicted to trying out new lip products, colors, brands, formulas, etc. It’s been SO much fun. I’ve tried some high end, some drugstore, and I tend to find them pretty comparable.

Today I’ll be writing about OCC Lip Tar and Lip Pencil in the shade ‘Lydia’.

OCC Lip Tar

I’ve been really loving the Mauve toned lips lately, so anything in that shade I’ve been hoarding.

One of the latest additions to that is the shade Lydia from OCC. It’s a perfect Mauve shade, perfect for everyday wear.

I have OCC Lip Tar in Black Dahlia, so I knew I already loved the formula, so it’s no surprise that I love the formula of Lydia. Super pigmented, blendable, smooth and stays put.

I’ve heard a few people didn’t want to purchase lip tars because they’re $18, which seems a bit steep. But, you need to take into consideration how little you need. You really only need a tiny drop, anything more is just too much. It will last you forever.

The lip pencil in Lydia is great to pair with the Lip Tar but it’s also great on it’s own if you want something quick that will last all day. 

The Lip Pencil is a bit stiffer and dryer than I’m used to, because I typically use mechanical lip pencils. I still like the way this one applies, and it really lasts and feels comfortable on the lips.

I totally recommend picking up any of the OCC Lip Tars, but especially ‘Lydia’. It’s just the perfect color, and I really love it. I can’t wait to include it in future makeup looks!

You can find OCC Lip Pencils($16) and OCC Lip Tars($18) at Sephora.

Thanks for reading!
