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.

SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer

SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “charcoal rock glitter infused with rhyolite.” This has a murky gray base with olive green shimmer and circular black and light gray flecks. It’s the mixture of shimmer and glitter that makes this unlike other polish I own. I don’t even know of what I could mix that would yield this result, even if I layered products. I’d love to hear any possible dupes if you’ve come across anything!
