Indeed, dear readers, it seems I have. JCAT Beauty, the makers of the illustrious Wonder Lip Paint, have somehow managed to concoct a formula so like the OCC Lip Tars, that even I had a hard time distinguishing between the two. And for a mere $4.99 a tube. Better yet, they sent me three of their colors to try :).


I’ve been on a quest to find  an OCC Lip Tar dupe for almost a year now. And while the LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints come close, they are a tad glossier and therefore have only a fraction of the staying power of an OCC Lip Tar.  With that being said, let’s take a look at the major similarities and differences between the OCC Lip Tar VS. the JCat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint




Somwhat Messy Application

Minty Fresh Scent


Price: $4.99 vs $18

Ingredients: OCC lipstars are made of good for you ingredients. JCAT Beauty? Not so much. But for $4.99 a tube you couldn’t have expected that JCAT Beauty could match OCC on the ingredient list.

Staying Power: OCC Lip Tars, hands down, trump these. I mean, you literally have to scrape OCC liptars off of your lips. These? Not so much. You’ll get a few hours of wear, but they are definitely more glossy than OCC Lip Tars.

Where they are sold: OCC Lip Tars can be purchased at Sephora. Wonder Paints are now available at Ulta Stores.








All in all, I’d if you are in the market for an OCC Liptar, but it’s not in your budget, then you can’t go wrong with purchasing some of the JCAT Beauty Wonder Lip Paints.  They are highly pigmented and offer great, opaque, full coverage. And they’re cheap! BUY THEM HERE! :-).


Well Hello! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a lipstick-loving, high heel junkie, mom, and wife. When I’m not here bringing you the latest in beauty, fashion, hot topics, and bits and pieces of my life with my family, you can find me over on youtube swatching lipsticks and sharing my latest natural hairstyles. Make sure you also follow me on Instagram and Snapchat under my brand name Lisa A La Mode. I’m a real person. I promise.

    1. Hi Kreyola, these are tad bit glossier than OCC lip tars, BUT I have to say the glossyness of OCC liptars seems to vary from shade to shade. I have some that are more glossy that others if that makes sense. These are the closest dupes I’ve encountered. Def not as glossy at the LA girl glazed lip paints.

  1. I have been hesitant to buy OCC lip tars because of the price, and that I’m allergic to most lipsticks, and don’t want to spend $18 on something I can’t use. I saw J.Cat lip paints and purchased one to try, it irritated my lips a little but, not too bad. I just got a ton of feathering and it didn’t seem to dry for nearly 4 hours, then it was flakey. It didn’t come off until I washed it off with face wash, but it didn’t really stay on either. I want to try the lip tars to see if they’d be less of an irritant, and if it’s less “wet” and feathery.

    1. lip tars are way less wet, not nearly as glossy as the lip paints and last, literally, until you scrub them off of your lips. I’ll be reviewing my latest OCC lip tar on the blog next week, hope you come back! xo
