I’ll Take My Lip Tar Iced!

OCC Iced Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “opaque snow white frost.” It’s a bright white with a shimmered, silver-tinted metallic sheen. You’d think a shade like this I’d be dupe-less, but alas! MAC Metal Maven is more silver. MAC Bubbles is similar in color but because it is very sheer, it looks pinker as my natural lip color came through quite a bit.

Of the six new shades from Metallurgy, Iced was the only one I had some trouble with. Though it can be worn alone, it looks best when worn as a sheer layer. What I struggled with was unevenness when I went to wear it on its own. Using it as a sheer layer definitely makes it easier to achieve evenness, but I was able to get mostly even color that was more opaque after playing with it. The key with this one was to be really careful about how much was applied and pat it on in layers. This shade is also the most versatile for mixing, as it will lighten and add sheen to any other Lip Tar.  When I test drove this shade, it wore for seven hours well; after eight and a half, it needed retouching.
