Let me count the ways......
As you all know, I'm deeply in love with OCC Lip Tars. My fave color is Grandma and Melange. However, after getting the rest of the Lip Tars, I have to say that I've got some more faves.
Now let's take a look at the new goodies I got.
From T-B: Katricia, Tarred, Vintage, NSFW, Safety Orange (SO), and Plum
And look Ma, the tips are all slanted! YAY for no leakage!
Here's the group swatch: First one w/o flash, but since it was overcast, I opted to take more with flash.
KATRICIA: A very pigmented muted lavender. It is very similar to MAC Lavender Whip, except it's 2p4892847302 times more pigmented. I personally can't wear this by itself since I don't have pearly whites, but ppl with perfectly white teeth can pull this off beautifully. I mixed it with Pageant and the result was AMAZING! I will have to show you one day.
TARRED: A pure black with leather shine. Amazing for people who are aiming that Goth look. It's also great to deepen any lip color, but beware, this is PIGMENTED. A little DEFINITELY goes a long way.
PLUM: A deep mauve with a hint of grey undertone. This color is pretty wearble in my opinion. Ladies with dark skintones can probably wear this as their "My Lip But Better" color. This color is also very suitable for Fall/Winter.
SAFETY ORANGE: My favorite color in this batch! This is NEON! It's a yellow orange that screams "LOOK AT ME!" Move over MAC Morange, there's a new chick in town. This is NOT for the faint of hearts, but it's soooo gorgeous. I took a lot more pics of it since I love it so much.
NSFW: Can we say blood red? This color is so glamours and when paired with a winged eye, very dangerous. This is the kind of color I picture Cat Woman would wear. In my opinion it's got a hint of blue to it, and it makes my teeth look whiter.
VINTAGE: V-A-M-P-Y! This is IT for the Fall/Winter. While the other companies like MAC are coming out with deeper darker hues for the new season, OCC already nailed it with this deep maroon color. Vintage is THE color to wear if you want that sexy sophistication. It gives me that "Sexy Liberarian" feeling.
Anyway, here's a simple FOTD I did for school.
What I used:
--Coverblend concealer in Beige
--Maybelline Dream Matte powder
--OCC Loose Colour in Glisten as a blush
--Stila smudgepot in Cobalt as top liner
--MAC e/s in Mulch on the bottom liner
--L'oreal Collagen mascara
--OCC Lip Tar in Melange (a TINIEST bit) mixed with
--OCC Lip Tar in Feathered (a pure white color, forgot to show it in the swatch) mixed with
--MAC clear lip glass.
I really like the lip color, it's so juicy looking and perfectly innocent.
Anyway, taking swatch pictures are exhausting! I hope they proved to be helpful to you all though. I strongly recommend Plum, Safety Orange, NSFW and Vintage. BTW, OCC just came out with 6 NEW SHADES!! AHHHHH! OCC! You must stop the madness! Can't you see that my wallet is thisclose to committing suicide?!!
The six new shades are:
• ANIME: Beyond neon pink. Pageant pales by comparison.
• HUSH: Antique, bridal pink. A match for OCC Skin Airbrush Blush in Hush.
• CONQUEST: Pale, polished ivory. Great for mixing or Mod Makeup.
• PETTY BEIGE: Opaque and true, deep toned ecru.
• FONDUE: Intensely dark chocolate - think 91% cacao dark!
• BOTANICAL: It's not easy wearing green, but it's great to tone down red.
Anime, Hush, Conquest, and Petty Beige are calling my name as we speak....MUST....RESIST...THE....TEMPTATION.....but but....bridal pink?!! Polished ivory?!! NEON PINK?!!!! Oh noes!
I'm going to go cry myself a river now since I can't quite afford them yet.....=(
Anyway, hope those of you who can buy them hurry up, cuz I think Anime and Hush are going to sell out QUICK. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Talk to you soon!
