On the OCC website liptars are $18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz. as well as on Sephora's website. However if you're a professional makeup artist you can apply for a Pro account at OCC and Nigel's Beauty Emporium. At IMATS I was able to get these liptars for $10 each.
The liptars are designed to have the wear of a lipstick, long lasting, with the ease of a gloss. These matte liptars are no exception. They last about 5 hours for me before I have to reapply because I had lunch or had my morning hot chocolate. The texture is a creamy liquid but not a sticky gel consistency like gloss.
I sat in on an interview with David, the owner of OCC, and he explained to me that 1/8th of an inch is enough liptar to apply to your entire lip. He also said that using their clear liptar as a base will help the matte liptar last even longer. I hoping to try this with the new Cosmetic Colour Liner in Anit-Feathered and Clear Liptar to see how long these matte liptars will last.
Mannequin: Is a soft Barbie pink. When built up on the lips it can look like Barbie's lipstick. If I had to pick a dupe I would say MAC Saint German or MAC Nicki's Pink Friday. (Pictured is just 1 layer of liptar)
Kimber: Is a pale orange. Of all the colors in this line this was the sheerest. I would have to build the color up to get the intense orange that you see in the tube.
