An exciting new texture option from the LIP TAR range, STAINED GLOSS combines the pigment potency of LIP TAR with a casual glossy finish that’s ready-to-wear from its first slick application to the high impact stain it leaves behind. “OCC fans have been asking to see a new take on LIP TAR that remains true to our high opacity heritage, while providing a more transparent look” says David Klasfeld, CEO and Creative Director, “We took our inspiration from art objects like stained glass windows and lighting gels. Transparent yet concentrated color that no one would dare call sheer”. LIP TAR: STAINED GLOSS can be worn alone or layered over your favorite existing shades for added depth, dimension and a glossy finish that lasts!

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

I could have easily given you a list of ten, being the gold fiend that I am, but I’ll keep it to the current five that really say holiday to me.  I think gold is a very versatile color.  It pairs well with warmer shades like bronze, rust, and berry, but it can also work with cooler-toned shades like violet, teal, and blue.  And if golds not your cup of tea, I have five of my favorite silvers for holiday coming right up.  Any interest in seeing some holiday blue shades? What other holiday-themed favorites would you like to see?

  1. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine — metallic yellow gold; not too yellow, not too orange
  2. OCC Triptych — rich, molten, honey gold
  3. Make Up For Ever #11 — dirty antique gold
  4. Inglot #430 — frosted, rich gold
  5. MAC Old Gold — tarnished gold
