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. Β When I test drove this shade, it wore for seven hours well; after eight and a half, it needed retouching.

I think makeup artist will still enjoy this one as it could double as a mixing shade and highlighter on the skin of a lip look.

This texture of white is hard to work with to get an opaque look general regardless of the base used. I naturally sheer whether it’s in a pressed/loose eyeshadow or gel pot. πŸ˜‰

I don’t understand this product. Are people honestly supposed to wear this by itself? It looks terrible, and I can’t imagine it’d look much better over another product.

I think on its own, people can be pretty turned off to this. I wonder how it looks mixed with “””normal””” lip colors… It seems like OCC Lip Tars, esp with their recent launch at Sephora, have lost their purpose as a “make your own lip color” type of product. Or rather, its selling point has been changed. You should include some swatches of it mixed with other colors to show how we might use it to alter colors! πŸ™‚

ITA. as a professional in a very stiff shirt industry this kind of artistic stuff is virtually useless for me (If you’re in College and HS I say rock it while you can)

Otherwise some of us that have to stay in a certain Box with our MU would love to see some “recipes” with the OCC lip tars.

I’m lovin’ it, just for how bloody happy you look wearing it πŸ˜€ The rest of your makeup looks super lovely BTW. When you mix with other matte lip tars, does the shimmer carry through, Christine?

These photos make me wonder, does Shaun ever comment on your makeup? Or is he just so used to it all that he doesn’t even notice? I think my SO would tease me forever if I spent my day in shimmery opaque white lip color. πŸ˜›

hehe, it’s so cute when bf’s are really interested in their gf’s make-up, like ‘oooh, i like that pink on you’, ‘a white l/s would be cool'(like mine says). i hate guys that are grossed out by all make up stuff(even simple non-crazy stuff).

I LOVE this collection! There are so many mixing possibilities with this one, the gold, and the copper lip tars. The shimmery versions of OCC classics are also amazing. I’m so excited to own these, so I make my own shades and enjoy the ready to wear colors.

This seems like such a cool product and I absolutely love lip tars, but this shade keeps screaming “powdered donut lips!” at me, LOL. If anyone could pull off that look, though, it would be you! The metallic sheen is beautiful.

I love this. I think mixing with other colours could be great! I don’t get all the hate! It might be odd on it’s own, but it’s made to be mixed, and that means with this, any colour can be paler AND shimmery!

Lol got milk? IΒ΄m sorry thats what I thought when I saw this πŸ™‚ extremely hard shade to use and even mixed…I donΒ΄t think I would buy something that needs mixing to be able to be used…maybe an extremely pale fair toned person could pull this off? just maybe lol

That’s not a good thing? Er, why not? As evidenced by the massive popularity of tanning and bronzing products, obviously it is a good thing for many people.

I don’t know, however, if the ability of this product to make you look more tanned outweighs its aesthetic, though.

It’s so bizarre, it’s almost cool! Haha I pun’d. πŸ˜› Christine, I’ve heard Dusty Hunter say Lip Tars make great creme blushes, how would this translate on the skin as say a highlight?

Lmao – I laughed a bit when thinking about testing this particular product for a full day. Kudos to you for wearing white lips for 8 hours!! The things you do for us πŸ™‚ xo

I don’t see it as anything but a base to make lipstick brighter – and perhaps icy? No one is going to step out looking like that, so it would do what NYX eye base does if you ask me.

This is a color that is better used to mix with other colors to make them lighter and bc most lip tars have more of a matte finish to them

I think it’s a fantastic shade. No, not to wear alone… but to lighten a shade and add shimmer. I have already ordered one and I can’t wait for it to arrive. I think a bit of ice mixed with trollop will make the perfect shimmery coral pink for spring.
