5 Gorgeous Copper Lipsticks to Try for Fall

I touched on some of my favorite copper eyeshadows last month, but coppery lip colors are becoming more and more prevalent with each passing season (much to my surprise!), so here are a few that I really like:

  1. NYX Wrath — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.
  2. Kat Von D Thin Lizzy — A Warm Copper with a Frost finish.
  3. Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) — A Warm Copper with a Satin finish.
  4. Milani Bronze Beauty — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.
  5. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Authentic — A Warm Copper with a Metallic finish.

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
