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.

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.

If you have a reddish metallic gloss or Lip Tar, you could try mixing with Black Dahlia to get something similar 🙂

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?

Hi Z,

I have the other two Lip Tars to test – they wear so long that it usually takes me a week to get through them 🙂

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.

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!).

Hi Connie!

We just don’t have the time – one video = 8 hours of work, and it’s just not a very good use of time since I’m always, always behind by about 6 months of what I intended to do!

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.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
