OCC Black Metal Dahlia Metallic Lip Tar
OCC Black Metal Dahlia Metallic Lip Tar

OCC Black Metal Dahlia Metallic Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “blackened burgundy with red pearl.” It’s a deep, burgundy red with ruby red and berry shimmer. The finish is rather metallic. The color coverage was semi-opaque, and this looked somewhat splotchy/uneven applied. After three and a half hours, I did feel the slight grit from all of the sparkle, but the color was holding strong and none of the sparkles had migrated. It wore well for five and a half hours, and then it was still quite noticeable, just not as intense–more of a stain–for another two hours. I found it slightly drying. MAC Soulfully Rich doesn’t have the metallic shimmer and is browner. MAC Dominate is purpler, less red. OCC Black Dahlia is similar in color but not finish (as it should be!). See comparison swatches.

Role Play Metallic Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep maroon with red pearl.” It’s a medium-dark, warm-toned red with a slight metallic finish. It’s actually the least metallic shade I’ve tried in the range–it’s definitely still shimmery, but it’s more of a sheen. It had fully opaque color payoff and applied evenly. It wore well for five hours and left a stain behind. It was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS Majella is brighter. NARS Amsterdam is browner. NARS Mascate is cooler-toned. NARS Dressed to Kill is somewhat similar, more muted. MAC Prolong is similar. MAC Runaway Red is darker. MAC Deeply Adored is similar, more matte. Guerlain Luxure is slightly browner. Dior Diorling is similar. See comparison swatches.

  4. Role Play looks so vibrant, gorgeous!

  5. Wow Christine, now I really don’t know what to do! I wanted to get the regular Black Dahlia but after seeing Black Metal Dahlia I’m not so certain. The metallic finish is just so pretty.

    Hi Christine. I would first like to say that I have become a new Temptalia addict. I love your site!

    How would you say Black Metal Dahlia Metalic compares to MAC’s Prince Noir. Are the colors really similar despite the finish?

    Thanks for an amazing daily read!

    omg omg omg omg omg! Splotchly or not, I NEED Black Metal Dahlia!!! Thank you so much for swatching those. My local Sephora doesn’t carry very much OCC and you’re my only stop for sampling pre-purchase.

    Will you have the rest of the release?

  8. WOW both of these are really beautiful!!!

    I think I need Black Metal Dahlia just for the name alone :D

  10. I am ridiculously excited for the new OCC lip tars. Those two are so pretty!

  11. Avatar of Cat Cat

    Black Metal Dahlia is gorgeous– I wonder if you mixed it with the original Black Dahlia you could get slightly better coverage. Role Play is also really pretty.

  12. Andrea

    lovveee both of these! can’t wait till they are available for purchase!

  13. Wow, they’re way prettier than I thought they were going to be, the finish is beautiful. Really nice fall colours too.

    i’ve never tried a lip tar but I want to SO badly. ugh, these are gorgeous.

  15. Connie

    Love Black Metal Dahlia! Hey Christine, I’ve been wondering why you don’t do videos anymore? It would be so fun to see a video on your take of all the new lip tars (and other products!).

  16. Black Metal looks so pretty on you. It makes me think of Christmas!

  17. Martyisblue

    Black Metal Dahlia is just WOW!!!

  18. Feeling ambivalent about both of these. Black Dahlia is so cool, but the finish..looks a bit difficult. Role play has a nice finish, but the colour is not doing it for me.

  19. Amanda

    These are INSANELY gorgeous.

  20. Gorgeous colors, though there’s something about them that feels Christmassy. I’d wear them for the holidays!

  21. Ess

    Just bought both of these and UGH! So amazing!

    Would you happen to know whether or not these are permanent? I feel like I need to buy a couple more of each as backups if they aren’t.

  22. Avatar of Indigo Yushin

    Hmm… why am I not seeing Black Metal Dahlia on neither sephora nor the occ website?

  23. Maria

    Hey,
    can someone tell me when this is gonna come out?
