Wow! It’s SO pigmented, to the point where you do a tiny tiny drop and it spreads sooo much! (see pictures below)

FINISH – 5/5
It’s semi matte, it’s not too dry looking and it’s not super glossy. Better than any lipstick, seriously now I can see why everyone crazes over it.
It dries to be the same sheen as your skin, it’s so beautiful. You can layer it on more for a more opaque look or thin it down to be a stain.

I’m pretty darn sure this will stay on, I went to the shower with it and it was still on my hand the first time I swatched it. (Purchased it for lucky brides!)
I washed it with softsoap and it was on STILL. I had to whip out my waterproof makeup remover from Japan to get it off!
(FYI I scrubbed it about 50 times back and forth with my finger and soap, still had a light stain.)

This is super versatile, I’m pretty sure I can use it as a stain, a lipstick, a color + lipgloss (with clear gloss – occ sells “Clear” too), a cheek stain, probably even an eyeshadow too if it didn’t contain peppermint (but it does, so don’t put it near your eyes!)

OCC is one of the safest brands as it’s 100% Vegan, cruelty free, doesn’t use anything that’s not safe or questionable for human use.

Super light, you barely feel it at all on your lips as it’s not drying. You probably need extra balm underneath if your skin is super dry but this is the perfect lipstick consistency.
Feels like a waxy liquid mixture
Not sticky at all

Photographs beautifully in camera!! The color is so true and vivid, most makeup artists LOVE it for photography!

Very affordable for professionals and personal use, 8mL for $12.50 USD. That’s less than 2/3 of lipsticks in department stores and you seriously need VERY VERY, VERY little.

SHELF LIFE – 4.5/5
12 months/1 year for optimal results, I say that’s pretty fair.


I can’t think of anything, other than make sure your lips are nicely exfoliated and hydrated before applying anything on it (like any makeup).

Everyday wear?

If you love bright, bold colors, YES! Otherwise these colors can be mixed around for more natural wear (which may take some time)

The tiny dot of “Pageant”

Spread around, yea it covered THAT much with my finger used to spread.

Tried washing it with just water and rubbing, did NOTHING, lol. Truly Waterproof!

Tried washing it after, around 40-50 scrubbing with my fingers and softsoap
