OCC Black Dahlia, Hollywood, Memento, Technopagan Lip Tar/RTW

OCC Lip Tar/RTW ($15.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a new way to get your Lip Tar delivered to you, as it is packaged in a clear tube with a doe-foot applicator, instead of a squeeze-tube that requires a lip brush. I figured I would try two shades that I found more challenging to apply, and then two shades that applied quite well to see if the doe-foot really helped for application/delivery of the product. From the four I tried, I don’t think that the doe-foot deposits too much in general, but Black Dahlia’s very liquid, almost runny formula makes it hard to apply, period–marginally easier than the squeeze-tube but a brush would still be better. I think they are more foolproof to apply with the doe-foot applicator.

OCC Cosplay and John Doe Lip Tars

OCC Cosplay Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “teal-toned green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark green with very subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had rich pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and smoothly without turning patchy/streaky, which is what I have found many green-based shades suffer from in the past. The color sits in lip lines slightly, but it didn’t seem to worsen during wear. It wore for seven and a half hours and left behind a bluish stain. It is mint scented, like other Lip Tars, and it was a little drying towards the end. Colour Pop Bunny (P, $5.00) is darker, more shimmery, warmer. Colour Pop Charm (P, $5.00) is lighter. NYX Risque (P, $6.00) is darker, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

5 Yellow-Orange Eyeshadows for Summer

It used to be hard to find a more yellow-based orange (most of the orange-hued eyeshadows would have a strong red base), but now, there is more variety than other. I think that yellow-toned oranges can sometimes be easier to wear if you’re new to orange eyeshadow! Here are some of my current favorites:

  1. Burberry Shell — a shimmery, golden orange
  2. ColourPop Sunnies — a pop of yellowed orange with a satin finish
  3. Makeup Geek Chickadee — a yellowed, medium orange with a matte finish
  4. OCC Mimosa — a shimmering tangerine
  5. Milani Bella Mandarin — a muted, yellowed orange
