OCC Androgyne, New Wave, Voyeur Lip Tar Stained Gloss Reviews, Photos, Swatches

OCC Androgyne Lip Tar Stained Gloss
OCC Androgyne Lip Tar Stained Gloss

OCC Androgyne Lip Tar Stained Gloss ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “psychedelic orange gel.” It’s a brightened tangerine orange with strong yellow undertones and a glossy sheen. It’s like the color of an orange popsicle. Guerlain Tangerine Vlam is sheerer and darker, more red-toned. MAC Sounds Like Noise is very similar in color, but it is a lipstick, so it isn’t glossy. OCC Banjee is yellower, lighter.

New Wave Lip Tar Stained Gloss ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “glassy neon pink.” It’s a brightened, pinky-red with subtle cool undertones and a glossy shine. Clarins Grenadine is slightly lighter and has shimmer. MAC Impassioned is similar, slightly pinker. MAC Gimme That! has iridescent shimmer. Illamasqua Petulant is less red.

Voyeur Lip Tar Stained Gloss ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “yellow glaze [that] creates a peach neutral.” It’s a warm yellow in the tube, and when applied, it will definitely change and adapt based on your natural lip color–it turns into a light yellow-orange on me. OCC Banjee is a bit bolder, but it is similar in color applied–it’s the only shade I could think of that came anywhere close to this.

The consistency of the Lip Tar Stained Glosses is lightweight, thin, and neither hydrating nor drying.  I’ve had fairly consistent wear with these as well; Androgyne and Voyeur lasted five hours, while New Wave lasted six and a half hours.  New Wave left behind a stain for longer than the other two, which wasn’t surprising, given how bold and deep the color was.  The glossiness lasts for about two-thirds of the wear time of each shade, and it then reduces to a soft sheen.  I think they’re easier to use than Lip Tars, and they look very jelly-like on lips (but with a much thinner consistency, so it does not feel jelly-like!).

I own a few OCC tubes in the more conventional colours and LoVe the way they wear. When it comes to yellow, blue and green lips, i can appreciate them but have no idea who or how to wear them (in everyday life).

Yes. Also, I’ve got a black and a turquoise which work really well if you dab just a bit onto your lips with fingertip or brush, then top with something shiny/sparkly. They’re really good for doing a tinted-gloss look!

Also, man, I’m loving Voyeur on Christine! Bummed that I’m way too pink to pull it off. 🙁

i actually really like voyeur on you. that looks so cool and i really wasn’t expecting to like it straight up, unmixed. it’d look terrible on my NW15 skin, but you can really pull it off!

Hi, Christine! Surprisingly, Voyeur looks great on you! Changing the subject: are you going to review the Armani Maestro foundation? I always rely on your reviews to buy stuff =)

Voyeur looks great on you Christine, I wasn´t expecting yellow to be so wearable on the lips, this really suits you 🙂 . It´s a very unique and cute shade, I wish it was in lipstick form…

I love that Androgyne was a best of the week in your news letter. I got one from The Makeup Show and I love it! It actually looks very sheer on my lips and very neutral, which is why I love it! The Stained Glosses are a wonderful product!

I love bright pink, so I just ordered New Wave!
I’m wondering if I could use the product as a stain, if I blotted down some of the glossiness.
I am wanting a good cruelty-free lip stain, and the marker-style ones dry out so darned quickly.

I bought “New Wave,” and it is a gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous face-brightening color.
It does wear on me as well as I wish it did, though.
Still it’s beautiful, especially for warm weather.
