OCC Strange & Unusual Lip Tar/RTW
OCC Strange & Unusual Lip Tar/RTW ($16.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a muted, rosy plum with subtle, warmer undertones and a fine, metallic shimmer. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a smooth, lightweight consistency that spread across the lips evenly. I’ve found that a lot of the Metallic shades have more slip and aren’t always as pigmented as the Cream Lip Tars, but this one was just right and went on nicely. It lasted for five and a half hours on me and was neither drying nor hydrating. Tom Ford Beauty Theo (DC, $35.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Too Faced Metallic Jelly (P, $21.00) is warmer (80% similar). NARS La Paz (LE, $26.00) is less glossy, brighter, lighter (85% similar). MAC Inez (LE, $22.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). MAC Model Behavior (P, $17.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
OCC Working Girl Lip Tar/RTW ($16.00 for 0.14 fl. oz.) is a bright, almost neon pink with subtle, cool undertones and warmer gold shimmer. It had good pigmentation, though not fully opaque, with a moderately emollient consistency that spread well across the lips but had a tendency to highlight lip lines. The brighter color made it less noticeable from a normal viewing distance at least! This shade wore well for five hours, left behind a stain, and was neither drying nor hydrating. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Yaoi (P, $18.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Chanel Extatique (P, $37.00) is more muted, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Metallic Dream House (P, $21.00) is glossier, brighter, darker (85% similar). Illamasqua Welt (P, $24.00) is less glossy, darker (80% similar).
