OCC Lovecraft Metallic Lip Tar

OCC Lovecraft Metallic Lip Tar
OCC Lovecraft Metallic Lip Tar

OCC Lovecraft Metallic Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “iridescent pink/lilac metallic.” It’s a brightened, light-medium, blue-based pink with a metallic finish. Maybelline Pink Pop is warmer, not metallic. MAC Pink Nouveau is similar in color but doesn’t have a metallic finish. MAC Outrageously Fun is close in color but lacks the metallic finish. MAC Naughty Saute is lighter, not metallic. OCC Narcissus is similar in color but a matte finish. See comparison swatches.

Lovecraft is very, very, very metallic. As a result, it’s a little gritty, and it’s on the whole, somewhat drying, even if it wears well and lasts six and a half hours. It just wasn’t comfortable to wear, and the high metallic finish made it look chunky/gritty applied. It was quite pigmented, though, and maybe mixed with a little gloss, it would be easier on the lips, both in terms of application as well as for how it feels when worn.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss (Berry Allure, Kiss Me Coral, Pango Peach)

Revlon Berry Allure Super Lustrous Lipgloss
Revlon Berry Allure Super Lustrous Lipgloss

Revlon Berry Allure Super Lustrous Lipgloss ($7.99 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a darkened, fuchsia pink with no shimmer. It looks purpler and more berry-like in the tube, but applied, it turned rather fuchsia/pink. It had semi-sheer color coverage, and it was only somewhat even when applied (it made my lips look splotchy). Berry Allure lasted two and a half hours on me. MAC Call Me Gorgeous is similar, has more shimmer. L’Oreal Dazzle Me has more shimmer. Chanel Pink Pulsion is less pigmented. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is similar in tint but has shimmer. See comparison swatches.

Kiss Me Coral Super Lustrous Lipgloss ($7.99 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a brightened, coral-red with silver/white shimmer and warm undertones. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied fairly evenly. This hue lasted three hours on me. Revlon Papaya is slightly pinker. MAC Whoops is less coral, not as warm-toned. MAC Meteoric is pinker. Guerlain Candy Stripe is very similar. Hourglass Nectar has no shimmer. Burberry Brick Red is warmer, less red. See comparison swatches.

Pango Peach Super Lustrous Lipgloss ($7.99 for 0.13 fl. oz.) is a soft, warm-toned pink-peach with golden shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff. This shade lasted two hours on me. MAC Strange Potion is lighter, more pigmented. MAC Richer, Lusher is lighter, creamier. MAC Dynasty at Dusk is slightly lighter. MAC Meteoric is pinker. Guerlain Frizzy Mango is similar. Chanel Nakkar is less shimmery. Burberry Cameo Pink is brighter, more opaque. Bobbi Brown Citrus is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Though I haven’t reviewed any previously on the blog, I do have a few (that I always intended to review!) in the original formula. The original formula contained 0.20 fl. oz., had a fruity scent (all of the new ones I bought were unscented even when I sniffed from the tube), were sticky (the new ones are completely non-sticky), and contained SPF 15 (the new formula has no SPF rating). Generally speaking, I think the formula improved, but the decrease in size is, of course, not one of the areas they improved on.

The new formula’s texture is lightweight, thin, and comfortable to wear. It is non-sticky, and all three were lightly hydrating when I wore them. After about two hours of wear, there is a very, very light tackiness but I wouldn’t go as far as calling it tacky.  I couldn’t detect any scent or flavor to the gloss (and no waxy or plastic-like scent either). It has an angled, doe-foot applicator and comes inside a large, round-shaped plastic tube.

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow
Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow

Inglot #121R Rainbow Eyeshadow Pan ($8.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a trio of warm, earthy greens that ranges from light to medium to dark. They sit together in the same pan, and they are equal in size/height. All three eyeshadows have the Double Sparkle finish, which means there is a light dusting of fine shimmer in them–but the shimmer was nearly undetectable applied.  When I tested the wear, all three shades lasted well for a full eight hours and only had some very minor fading apparent after nine hours of wear.

#121R Top is a chartreuse–a mix of yellow and green–with a soft satin finish and warm undertones. It had a soft texture with slight powderiness (one of the trade-offs of having such a soft, easy-to-blend texture is that they’re usually a bit on the powdery side). It had good color payoff and was true-to-pan. CoverGirl Lime Light is more shimmery. Aveda Papyrus is darker. Make Up For Ever #304 is cooler, more shimmery. NARS Rated R #1 is slightly warmer, darker. MAC Bitter is warmer. Inglot #343 is brighter. See comparison swatches.

#121R Middle is a medium-dark, olive green with soft, brown undertones and a dusting of khaki shimmer. It only had so-so color payoff when I initially swatched it on the skin, but it was buildable, so I was able to get more opaque color on the lid. Clinique Whopping Willow is darker, warmer, cream product. Urban Decay Jealous #1 is slightly darker. Urban Decay Mildew is more shimmery. MAC Spread the Wealth is a cream product. Guerlain Coup de Foudre is a bit darker. See comparison swatches.

#121R Bottom is a dark, khaki brown with subtle warm undertones and a dusting of green and muted bronze shimmer. It was a little on the dry side, so it didn’t swatch well and looked like it was going to have low color payoff. On the lid, it can be packed on, but I did have some trouble blending the color out–it was not as effortless as many Inglot eyeshadows can be. theBalm Lead Zeppelin is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Olive is warmer, more shimmery. Giorgio Armani #14 is more shimmery, lighter. Giorgio Armani #24 is darker. bareMinerals Speaker Box is more shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Sephora Black Lace and Good Mood Contour Eye Pencils

Sephora Black Lace Contour Eye Pencil
Sephora Black Lace Contour Eye Pencil

Sephora Black Lace Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “black.” Just as described, it’s a dark black with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had fairly good color in a single stroke, and it is buildable to opaque color. There are so, so many black eyeliners on the market. This is one of the darker ones, so it’s an intense version of black, more like the likes of these, but they really don’t differ much between each other. (My guess is that Clubbing Stilettos is the softer black in the range.)

Good Mood Contour Eye Pencil ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as “jade.” It’s a darkened green-teal with a pearly sheen. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke but was buildable to mostly opaque color on the lash line. Make Up For Ever #4K is less shimmery. MAC Dark Envy is a gel version. Make Up For Ever #20L is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

I just bought these and tried them out yesterday, alongside the Ariel palette. They both have a really smooth, creamy consistency that glides on well and deposits a good amount of product in a single pass.  I tried Black Lace on the lower lash line as well as the water line, and it didn’t last for more than a couple of hours on the water line, but it did wear well for just over eight hours.  I started to see some shrinkage, so it looked like an even line of color, just thinner than before, after nine hours of wear.  Good Mood wore similarly for a solid eight and a half hours of good wear and then diminished wear from that point forward.

Disney Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette (by Sephora)

Disney Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette
Disney Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette

Disney Ariel Storylook Eyeshadow Palette ($55.00 for 0.70 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette that features twenty eyeshadows (each containing 0.035 oz. of product) inspired by Disney’s The Little Mermaid.  

Blue Lagoon is a brightened, medium cyan blue with a light dusting of silver sparkle. Of all twenty eyeshadows, this was the worst (and it’s just so-so), as the texture was a bit dry and powdery, and the silver sparkle does seem to get everywhere. Urban Decay Peace is more shimmery. Urban Decay Clash is a cream product. NARS Mad, Mad World #1 is less shimmery, darker. MAC Electric Eel is less shimmery, darker. MAC Blue Candy is less shimmery. Inglot #371 is less shimmery, darker. See comparison swatches.

Scuttle is a warm-toned, champagne-shimmered golden beige with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff, and the texture was soft and very, very slightly powdery. MAC Glamour Light is lighter. MAC Warming Heart is darker and more shimmery. MAC Grain is darker, less shimmery. Buxom Collie is a cream product. bareMinerals Stealth is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Flounder is a pale yellow with a hint of orange in it and a matte finish. It was somewhat powdery, and the color was prone to sheering out quickly. I had better luck patting it onto the lid and only blending around the edges. theBalm Snobby is more shimmery, cooler. Bobbi Brown Banana is very similar. NARS Misfit #1 is lighter. MAC Motif is more shimmery. Estee Lauder Bronze Dunes #1 is more shimmery. Chanel Premier Regard #3 is more shimmery. Inglot #3102 is lighter, cooler. See comparison swatches.

Sebastian is a pink-coral with a matte finish. It had a soft, smooth texture with just a small amount of powderiness, but it was easier to apply than Flounder. Chanel Rose de Mai is more muted. Inglot #359 is cooler. See comparison swatches.

Flotsam is a darkened, cool-toned gray with a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff, though the texture was slightly stiffer than a lot of the other shades (not hard to work with, but just noticeably different). theBalm Matt McDonald is lighter. Urban Decay Ace is warmer. NARS Mandchourie #2 is slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Gunmetal is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches.

Sea Shells is a warm, golden ivory with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish. It had mostly opaque color, and the texture was soft and buttery–but a smidgen powdery. Make Up For Ever #101 is warmer, more frosted. Urban Decay Midnight Cowgirl is a smidgen darker. MAC Carefree is cooler. MAC Short Shorts is similar. MAC Femme-fi is warmer. MAC Dazzlelight is cooler. Inglot #395 is slightly lighter. See comparison swatches.

Les Poissons is a medium-dark brown with a hint of warmth and a frosted sheen. It was soft, smooth, and nicely pigmented. Tom Ford Platinum is a cream product, warmer. theBalm Matt Gallagher is cooler, less shimmery. Urban Decay Wreckage is cooler, darker. MAC Caramel Sundae is lighter. MAC Sweet Satisfaction is lighter. MAC Superwatt is a cream product, darker. Chanel Raffinement #3 is slightly darker. Chanel Harmonie du Soir #2 is darker. See comparison swatches.

Caspian Sea is a blue-teal with a soft, frosted finish. It had nice color payoff and a soft, smooth texture that was easy to apply and to blend out. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #3 is bluer, darker. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen is darker, slightly bluer. MAC Parrot is very comparable. NARS South Pacific #1 is brighter. Make Up For Ever #83 is brighter. Inglot #415 is lighter, more frosted. See comparison swatches.

Your Voice is a silvered-white with a frosted, slightly metallic finish. It was soft but a bit crumbly/powdery, and it did smooth down when patted and blended out on the lid. theBalm Sassy is similar. theBalm Metal-ica is also similar. MAC Flawless Figure is less frosted. MAC Crystal Avalanche is less shimmery. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #4 is similar. bareMinerals Cheers is less shimmery. Inglot #453 is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Unfortunate Souls is a muted, cool-toned purple with a hint of blue and a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff, and it was a little stiff (but not powdery). Urban Decay Blue Bus is darker, more shimmery. NARS Self Portrait 1 #2 is darker. MAC Heroine is slightly darker. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #2 is much darker.

Atlantica is a subtly warm-toned, pastel green with golden yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. It had nice pigmentation, and it was soft, smooth, and buttery to the touch. MAC Zestful is lighter. Guerlain Coup de Foudre #3 is darker. bareMinerals Wicked is warmer, lighter. Make Up For Ever #34 is a smidgen darker. See comparison swatches.

Fins is a medium-dark, subtly yellow-toned green with gold and green sparkle. It had good color payoff, but there was some fall out when worn due to the amount of sparkle in it. Sephora Picnic in the Park is brighter, cooler. Make Up For Ever #52 is a cream product. Sugarpill Midori is darker. NARS Mad Mad World #2 is darker, less shimmery. Milani Green Safari is a cream product. MAC Feeling Fresh is warmer. Make Up For Ever #53 is cooler, less shimmery.

Sick of Swimmin’ is a cool-toned white with a frosted, teal iridescent sheen. It was semi-sheer, and it’s probably a shade best used to apply over another to add dimension. MAC Vellum is similar but less frosted. See comparison swatches.

Ursula is a subtly warm-toned, muted plum with a frosted finish. It had good color payoff but was slightly powdery. Inglot #446 is brighter. Le Metier de Beaute Fig is warmer. OCC Overlook is warmer. Guerlain Boulevard du Montparnasse #6 is less shimmery, darker. MAC Rich Core is darker. MAC Rare Find is slightly darker. MAC Universal Appeal is a touch lighter. Urban Decay Uncut is darker. See comparison swatches.

Sha La La is a reddened berry with cool undertones and a satiny finish. It had so-so color payoff, but it did build up better (to about semi-opaque color). The texture was soft, finely-milled, and a little powdery. MAC Posthaste is redder. NARS Douce France #3 is darker, warmer. MAC Hepcat is slightly cooler-toned. Estee Lauder Violet Underground #1 is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Triton is a warm-toned, medium yellow gold with a frosted, metallic finish and larger gold sparkle. It had good color payoff, but there was some fall out during application and seemed to have some minor fall out later on during wear, too.
Chanel Cool Gold is a cream product. Sephora French Riviera is yellower. NARS Corcovado is yellower, cream. Maybelline Gold Rush is slightly darker, cream product. MAC Goldmine is similar. Chanel Blazing Gold is lighter. OCC Triptych is slightly darker. bareMinerals Remix is very similar. Inglot #430 is warmer, brighter. See comparison swatches.

Wanderin’ Free is a muted copper with a frosted finish.  It had great color payoff, and the texture was soft and buttery–but again, there was a smidgen of powderiness. theBalm Manic Maribel and Urban Decay Chopper are darker, warmer. Urban Decay Limelight is warmer. MAC Summer Haze is cooler. MAC All That Glitters is similar. Buxom Collie is lighter, cream. bareMinerals Nirvana is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

Jetsam is a teal-tinged, deep gray with a pearly sheen.  It looks more teal in the pan than it does swatched or applied. Sephora Midnight Swim is lighter. Urban Decay Hijack is lighter. MAC Blue Spruce is less shimmery. Guerlain Les Aquas #1 is less shimmery. bareMinerals Editor’s Pick is lighter. Inglot #451 is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sea Witch is a dark, bold purple with cool undertones and a pearly sheen.  It had decent to good color payoff, but it was slightly dry.  MAC Warm & Smoky is darker, cooler. MAC Pink Union #2 is brighter. MAC Drawn to Drama is darker. MAC Parfait Amour is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Treasures Untold is a pink-tinged white with a golden sheen.  It had good color payoff with a soft, buttery texture that was very slightly powdery. L’Oreal Strawberry Blonde is pinker. MAC Double Feature #5 #1 is less shimmery. MAC Winterscape is cooler. MAC Golden Flurry is less frosted. MAC Let’s Skate is a cream product. MAC Radial Pink is lighter. MAC Opalesse is cooler. MAC Good Fortune is a cream product.

Overall, I really liked the palette, and I think it’s well worth the $55 price tag assuming they’re colors and finishes that you would use.  My main issue was that most shades were on the powdery side with some just being very slightly powdery to a few feeling almost crumbly.  The majority of the shades had good color payoff, though.  I wore several shades from the palette (10 of the 20), and I’m almost at seven hours of wear–so far so good in terms of fading/creasing.  There has been some slight fall out from Fins and Triton.

Also, heads up: Sephora teased about this collection on their Facebook, and while doing so, also stated that this was the last and final installment of the collection.

Urban Decay ABC Gum, Asphyxia, Haight Eyeshadows

Urban Decay ABC Gum Eyeshadow
Urban Decay ABC Gum Eyeshadow

Urban Decay ABC Gum Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “pale peach matte.” It’s a warm-toned peach with a matte finish. The texture is soft, finely-milled, albeit a bit powdery, but it blends really well and sits nicely on the skin (doesn’t look powdery). Kat Von D Vespertine is more orange. Urban Decay Freestyle is darker, cooler. Urban Decay Skimp is lighter, more shimmery. MAC Orb is pinker. bareMinerals Peace is darker, more shimmery. bareMinerals Stealth is slightly warmer. Inglot #390 is cooler. See comparison swatches.

Asphyxia Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “hyacinth shimmer with blue shift.” It’s a light-medium, pink-lavender with an iridescent, blue sheen. The texture was soft, slightly powdery, and applies best with a moderately firm brush. The color payoff was so-so, but it is buildable to mostly opaque color payoff; applied over a base, and true-to-pan opacity is possible. MAC Stars ‘n Rockets is a bit darker. Urban Decay Grifter is less pink, more shimmery. Urban Decay Tainted is less shimmery, purpler. L’Oreal With a Twist is slightly purpler. See comparison swatches.

Haight Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “mermaid blue shimmer.” It’s a muted, medium-dark blue with a hint of green (but it’s not enough to make it teal) and has a frosted finish. The color payoff is lovely and rich, while the texture is soft, smooth, and buttery. It’s easy to use and blend out on the lid. Tom Ford Emerald Lust #3 is tealer. theBalm Open to Offers Olwen is similar. Urban Decay Junkie is darker, greener. Urban Decay Unhinged is slightly lighter. Guerlain Les Aquas #3 is darker. See comparison swatches.

When I wore these shades, Asphyxia had some fall out after six hours or so but didn’t fade or crease, while the other two eyeshadows wore well for nine hours without fading or creasing (no primer).
