Beautiful as they are worn alone, we’re obsessed with mixing our OCC Lip Tars together to create new shades and effects. So when the ombré lip trend reached a saturation point, we were inspired to follow up our last OCC post with some new pairings. Enter David Klasfeld, the brand’s founder, who graciously took some time from his hectic fashion week schedule to make up some looks we can’t wait to try.
The first installment of this three-part series focuses on the most feminine and wearable looks.
OCC LIP TARS IN NARCISSUS + FEATHERED + TROLLOP = THE LOLLIPOP STAIN
STEP ONE Use Narcissus as a base shade on the lips.
STEP TWO Blend Feathered into the lip line all the way around.
STEP THREE Dab Trollop to the inner pout—the inner area of both your top and bottom lips.
INTERLACE + BLACK DAHLIA = FADE TO BLACK (DAHLIA)
STEP ONE Use the Short Handled Precision Lip Brush to define the upper lip with Black Dahlia.
STEP TWO Blend downward toward the inner pout of the top lip.
STEP THREE With a clean lip brush (there’s one included with each Lip Tar), blend Interlace on the bottom edge of the lower lip.
TIP: Mix a touch of Feathered with the Interlace to further brighten up the lower lip line.
BLACK DAHLIA + PSYCHO + TRIPTYCH LOOSE PIGMENT POWDER = THE VAMPY OMBRÉ
STEP ONE Using the Short Handled Precision Lip Brush, line lips with Black Dahlia.
STEP TWO With a clean brush, layer an overcoat of Psycho all over both lips.
STEP THREE Finish off the look by dabbing Triptych Loose Pigment Powder in the center of both lips.

“We mistake sex for romance. Guys are taught that pushing a girl up against a wall is romance. Sex is easy; you can do it with anyone, yourself, with batteries. Romance is when someone you like walks into a room and they take your breath away. Romance is when two people are dancing and they fit together perfectly. Romance is when two people are walking next to each other and all of a sudden they find themselves holding hands, and they don’t know how that happened.”—John C. Moffi
