OCC Yaoi Lip Tar

OCC Yaoi Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “perfectly pink perlescence.” It’s a vibrant hot pink with blue undertones and a lighter pink shimmer-sheen. I thought it was a bit like OCC Nylon when I saw it in the tube, but it seems a bit darker, not quite as neon. Chanel Extatique is much more subdued. MAC Candy Yum Yum is cooler-toned, a bit brighter, and has no shimmer. MAC Quick Sizzle doesn’t have the shimmer, so it is a bit darker. MAC Show Orchid is them ost comparable, though it isn’t quite as vibrant and the shimmer is finer–less metallic. Milani Flashy is slightly lighter, but it has a similar finish–grittier, though.

OCC Super NSFW Lip Tar

OCC Super NSFW Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “true red with a golden metallic flourish.” It’s a vibrant cherry red with golden shimmer, which gives it a warmer tone overall. The sheen is more noticeable from a normal viewing distance than up close. CoverGirl Burn is darker. CoverGirl Captivate is more berry. Dolce & Gabbana Ruby is more orange. Hourglass Siren is similar but glossier (it is a gloss!).

OCC Triptych Lip Tar

OCC Triptych Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “true 24K metallic gold.” It’s a molten honey gold with a metallic shimmer-sheen. Shocking, I’m sure, but I don’t have a dupe for this. Back in June, I reviewed Triptych in its Loose Colour Concentrate form (and it was amazing), and as a lip color–oh, la la! If you have that, you could try mixing it with clear gloss to achieve a similar color.

Bobbi Brown Cement Sparkle Eyeshadow

Bobbi Brown Cement Sparkle Eyeshadow ($28.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “grey beige sparkle.” It’s a light-medium taupe brown with bits of silver, brown, and reddish-brown sparkle. I don’t know of anything quite as sparkly, but there are some shades that are similar in color (just not in finish). MAC Romance Me is darker. Chanel Harmonie du Soir is a bit darker. MAC Superwatt is browner. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo is grayer. Bobbi Brown Sandy Rose is very similar in color.
