LIPS: OCC Lip Tar in Hush

Hush is my first OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) lip tar. I've been wanting one forever, and I finally broke down and ordered Hush from LeCosmetique.com. They were marked down, and the total was about $12 w/shipping included. Not bad! It came really quickly as well -- I'd definitely recommend this shop!
As for the lip tar itself, I am really impressed. The container is a tiny tube (I'll post a pic soon!), but believe me, this thing will last a looong time. I only used three tiny dots to get full coverage, then I just blended with my finger. A lip brush would be a good choice for application, too, but even though I have one, I like to keep it simple -- I don't want to carry a lip brush around with me all day when I need to re-apply!
It did become a bit dry on my lips after some time passed, and I added a bit of MAC's Florabundance lipglass (a good pairing! I imagine Revlon's Peach Petal would look nice as well -- another pale peachy pink shade). Next time I'll try putting on a layer of lip balm first.
The best part is definitely the shade and the coverage - brilliant! It jumped to the top of my list of favorite nudes, alongside YSL Rouge Pur 148, MAC Creme D'Nude, MAC Hue, and YSL Rouge Volupte #2 Sensual Silk. I'm always on the hunt for this sort of lipstick shade, and this exceeded my expectations. I just wish I'd added it to my collection sooner!
Can't wait to try out more OCC lip tars in the future.
Anyone else tried OCC lip tars or any OCC products? If so, what'd you try and what were your thoughts? I'd love to hear them!
A June favorites post is coming soon.... ;)
