OCC Aurora Stained GlossOCC Aurora Stained Gloss ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a "pink-toned coral." It's a brightened, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a soft shine. It seemed less glossy compared to other Stained Glosses I've tried, and the pigmentation was opaque but looked heavier--it didn't really have that "translucent finish" that seems associated with the formula in general. It lasted four and a half hours on me, and this one stained just slightly after that. This shade totally screams "summer is here!" to me, though. It's neither hydrating nor drying on me while worn. MAC Go for Girlie (LE, $20.00) is slightly warmer, less glossy. MAC Viva Glam Nicki (LE, $15.00) is glossier. Bite Beauty Damask (LE, $28.00) is darker. Sephora Collection Flamingo (LE, $12.50) is more matte, darker. Bite Beauty Sweety (LE, $24.00) is darker, more matte. YSL Opera Rose (29) (P, $34.00) is very similar. Givenchy Rose Taffetas (201) (P, $36.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
Ready to wear from its first slick application to the high-impact stain it leaves behind, this gloss gives you the ability to get a more translucent look from your Lip Tars while still providing fully pigmented color impact. It can also be worn over existing original-formula Lip Tars for added shine and color-transformative options.
