OCC Meta Lip Tar Stained Gloss
OCC Meta Lip Tar Stained Gloss

OCC Meta Lip Tar Stained Gloss ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “red orange shellac.” It’s a bold, brightened orange-toned red with a luminous sheen. Dior Ceremony Red is bluer-based and shimmery. Chanel Exces is sheerer but similar in color (not as bright). OCC Harlot is similar in color (but a true Lip Tar). Illamasqua Fume isn’t quite as warm-toned.

It has a really lightweight feel and thin texture, and for the first three to four hours, there’s a natural sheen–not full-on glossy shine but still rather luminous. After, it has a subtler sheen and looks like a lip stain. The color coverage is much like a stained glass window; translucent enough that the natural lip color comes through somewhat but still a lot of color density. Meta lasts for six and a half hours well, and the stain lingers for another hour or so. It’s neither hydrating nor drying.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

Yup! I totally agree. Now if Sephora would hurry & get these in stock & take me out of my misery 🙂

It’s a no brainer that I’m getting this…let’s be honest…I’m getting them all. I am officially an OCC lip tar addict so the stained glosses were automatically on my radar! I’m going to try and be done getting them for a little while after this, but….my will power is lacking as of late lol

Oh, this is stunning. Christine, do you happen to know if the formula/wear on these is similar to the YSL Glossy Stains? I’m totally in love with them but they’re so expensive, the Lip Tars would be a little more affordable!

This is very pretty, it looks like Mac Impassioned but glossier. It´s very pretty, but I wouldn´t buy this just because I very often apply makeup on the go or in a hurry and couldn´t bother with a lip tar I would probably make a mess with it lol, I generally just prefer lipstick.

I found the best way to compare was in the full face photos – Meta is noticeably redder, not as warm/orange, whereas Jealous looks more orange (with less influence by red). I don’t think you’d need both, though!
