Birchbox Breakdown

Sick of your lipstick flaking moments after you apply it? OCC gets it. That’s why the bold brand created this innovative product that not only preps and primes lips for color, but also maintains hydration and revitalizes the look of pigments during wear. With hemp oil and vitamin E to nourish, peppermint oil to soothe, and a complimentary travel-sized lip brush for precise application, this multitasker is the perfect companion for cult-favorite OCC Lip Tar. Bonus: the cruelty-free, gluten-free, and silicone-free formula is 100% vegan.

How to Use

Before putting on your favorite lipstick or OCC Lip Tar, apply a small bead of primer using the brush. Allow product to absorb into lips, gently blot away excess, and then swipe on color. Alternatively, use primer on its own for a boost of moisture.

Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) Oil, Mentha X Peprita (Peppermint) Oil, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Stearalkonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate

It sounded so great

But I received it without a brush and the tar itself is slipping and sliding all over my lips.

good product, misleading

I think this primer is pretty good, but it was said to come with a travel size brush, which it does not. it's a little messy, but with the proper application tools, is likely going to be a great product.

Must-have lip product!

I bought this on the recommendation of Lorelei O. and it is FANTASTIC. I apply it immediately after a quick lip scrub in the morning and allow it to soak in as I do my hair and makeup. Then my beloved matte long wear lipsticks apply like a dream! It's highly concentrated so you only need a tiny drop, and I apply with my fingertip rather than the included brush (hey, I can always use a travel lip brush for my Lip Tars!). I have also started alternating it with my usual overnight lip treatment and it's just as perfect at that. Will definitely repurchase - a great find!

Smooths out the lips

I like this. I don't know if I would purchase it again for the price but considering I only have to use a very small amount it may last a while. I really only put a small dot on the brush to coat my lips before lipstick. I don't necessary think it works well to keep my lipstick on any more than other products that claim to do so but it definitely smooths the fine lines and dry spots on my lips before application. Also, no weird scent which I love.

Doesn't stay on long

Does not really help with chapped or dry lips. Nothing special about it. It does have a nice sticky application
