OCC Fragmented Metallic Lip Tar
OCC Fragmented Metallic Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “metallic acid green shade.” It’s a brightened, chartreuse green with gold and lime shimmer and a metallic finish. It shouldn’t be much of a surprise, but I don’t know of any other lip color like this–the best I could suggest would be to take a loose eyeshadow or crumble up a pressed one in a chartreuse hue and pat onto lips. You could add a little gloss to help it mix together. MAC Spring Bean is somewhat similar, but it is a gloss and is sheer.
The sheerness of this may make it more “wearable” for more people, and according to OCC, it’s supposed to have a glaze finish to be in line that’s almost gauzy–so it’s not designed to be opaque. The consistency had more slip than other Metallic Lip Tars, and it felt a bit like the Stained Gloss Lip Tars but with a metallic finish because of the glossier, higher slip feel. I applied two thin layers to get semi-sheer color that was still even; more than that, and it started to look uneven and noticeable color settled into lip lines. Fragmented lasted for five hours when I wore it.
It will be available at Comic Con in San Diego, but it will make its full debut in August at Sephora and OCC.
