OCC Lip Tars - Naturally Neutral Box Set Swatches

On Black Friday I received an email from OCC saying there was going to be a sale as well as two box sets of lip tars. I immediately picked up the two lip tar box sets after falling in love with the first set I had purchased. Today I am going to show you swatches of the Naturally Neutral box set. The set includes five lip tars and their #009 Angle Brush.

Interlace- subtle peach neutral
Melange- deep terracotta neutral
NSFW- true primary red
Grandma- clean and classic true coral
Femme- pale yellow-based pink

Top: Interlace, Melange, Grandma
Bottom: Femme NSFW
Top: Interlace, Melange, Grandma
Bottom: Femme NSFW

All done over bare skin - and no lip liner

Top- Interlace, Melange, Grandma
Bottomw- Femme, NSFW

I did not think I was going to like Interlace or Melange, but I was pleasantly surprised when I swatched them. I think Interlace would be great for mixing to tone down a color and I feel like I could wear Melange out -as is. I think NSFW would be a great red lip for anyone of any skin tone. It is bright and primary red. I am still undecided as to how I feel about Femme on its own and as before Grandma is still my favorite!

What do you think of these neutral colors? Would you wear any of them alone or do you feel they are more suited to being mixed?

If you missed part 1 check it out here! Or move on to part 3! Part 4!

OCC Lip Tars are available for $13 on their website.


  1. I would probably do just what you said and use the first one to tone down a color, perhaps to make a bright red more wearable. I love the last 3 colors! Grandma looks great on you :)

  2. @Emily♥ 에밀리 ♥エミリー Thank you! It seems everyone loves Grandma on me. It is the best "my lips but better" color I have found. I also like that this color will probably never go out of style meaning I can wear it forever!

  3. I agree that Grandma is the best on you out of this bunch.. so flattering!

  4. @WitchHazel thank you! I think Grandma will have to become my signature everyday color!
