During The Makeup Show Chicago 2013, I finally got to see the OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars in person and just as expected, they are AWESOMEEEEE!
Like the original Lip Tar, the Stained Gloss Lip Tar is enriched with Castor Seed Oil, Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil, Vitamin E and without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. There are six colors available, including five wearable shades that are perfect for the summer and a neutralizing color.
Voyeur is a bright yellow. It can be used to neutralize other colors or worn alone for a fun look.
Androgyne is a bright cool-toned orange.
Jealous is a vibrant red with just a touch of pink.
Metais a bright orange red and and almost identical to Jealous.
New Wave is a neon pink.
Rhythm Box is a dark cherry red.
The gel formula went on slightly runnier and left behind a lightweight, glossy finish that was more translucent and forgiving. One tiny drop gave intense color but you could blot it down for a stained look. I also find the formula to be slightly less drying compared to the original and I was able to get 2-3 hours of wear with one single application.
Overall, OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tar is a great new formula and makes a perfect lip gloss or cheek stain. Are YOU liking the look of them?
OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tar is available exclusively at Sephora.com for $18.
