I’m going to be reviewing all my Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic lip tar products slowly as a friend requested that I do.
This is OCC’s Clockwork. It is described as a ‘burnt orange cream‘. It does look like that when swatched, but when applied on my lips, and going by the images you see online, it’s a way brighter colour than that. On my lips, it looks more like an orange based coral, with definitely some peach tones there. It has a beautifully smooth cream finish (there’s still some kind of sheen to it, and doesn’t look as flat as a matte would), and looks and feels great. The lip tar is incredibly pigmented, so a tiny amount is usually enough for me to cover my lips. I only need to pat on one layer to get the intense colour you see below. I usually apply this with my fingers, though if you have thinner lips, you’d want a lip brush to get a more precise line.
I am so glad I bought this colour. It’s a lovely everyday coral that perks up your face instantly. The lip tar was USD18 when I bought it in the states. OCC is not available in Singapore, though there are sellers online who carry it. The prices differ from seller to seller. I’ve found one that sells each lip tar for SGD22, though their supply is of course, limited.
Clockwork lasts about six hours on my lips (and I drink water constantly!), and leaves a lingering stain after. Even as it fades throughout the day, the colour continues to look really pretty and flattering on the lips.
All lip tars can be mixed with other lip tars to get different colours. So far, I’ve mixed Clockwork with both Triptch (metallic jewellery gold) and Androgyne (bright orange).
Cost: USD 18
Does it work: The colour is highly pigmented, and goes on smoothly. It lasts about six hours on my lips, leaving a lingering stain. Even as it fades, the colour still looks really lovely and flattering.
Would I recommend it: This is a beautiful everyday coral that will go well with most outfits. Because you only apply the tiniest amount each time, one lip tar will last you a good long time. Yes, get it.
