OCC Authentic Lip Tar
A More Wearable Lip Tar, But It Still Has Pizzazz!
OCC Authentic Lip Tar ($16.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “full strength copper metallic.” It’s a rich orange-shimmered copper-brown with red-orange undertones. LUSH Vibrance has a similar orange shimmer, but the base color is less brown. MAC Look at Her! is more red-based. NYX Sparkling Beige is less orange, browner, and has more of a champagne sparkle.
Authentic is completely opaque and so, so smooth. It has such a beautiful consistency that still yields that rich, metallic sheen that characterizes the latest launch of Lip Tars. It’s warm-toned, but it has a very rusted tone, and it’s almost muted (but the metallic sheen means it will never play a background role!). This is another shade that would work well to add a coppery shimmer/sheen to other shades, like reds. I tested this yesterday, and it lasted eight hours, including dinner and tea (my nighttime drink).
