I recently joined Bellabox and as part of a promotion, they sent me a free OCC lip tar! I got the colour pageant which is a super bright barbie pink. I doubt I could pull this off during the day but I love the formula so much that I'm definitely going to pick it up in some other (more wearable) colours.

The lip tar contains 8ml of product and a little bit seriously goes a long way. I found that if I used too much, it would feather or go onto my teeth. Pageant is a bright pink so the application has to be really precise...
I used my finger to apply the product as I didn't get a lip brush with it (I think a lip brush is included, depending on where you buy it from... but mine was free). I probably used more product than I needed to this way so I would definitely recommend using (any) lip brush!
It wears for a few hours with eating and drinking. I love that you don't really need to reapply during the day as the colour doesn't budge too much. When it fades, it fades evenly so I didn't end up with uneven colour across my lips like I do with the new Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains.
I'm so in love with this and I really want to pick up Divine and Trollop as well! OCC lip tars are marketed as 100% vegan and cruelty free. They retail for about $16 which makes them perfect as a Secret Santa/Kris Kringle present for Christmas :)
