I’m really excited about OCC’s new Unknown Pleasures collection.  There are six all new lip tars for the Fall/Winter season! I also have two new Cosmetic Colour Pencils to share with you!

I love that these shades all come in their own little plastic pouch with mini lip brushes. It makes it so convenient for travel or stowing in your purse for touch ups!occ packaging

 Truthfully, at first glance NONE of these shades really flatter me when worn by themselves and none of them are really shades I can picture myself wearing regularly alone. Both of the nude shades are ever so slightly off of what I would normally wear in a nude lip, and I’m totally not a dark lipstick person. But honestly, that’s why they excite me. There are so many times when I wish I could lighten a lip shade a little bit to make it a little more flattering for day time, and for those instances, I would add Covet or Lament. Alternately, I often wish I could take an awesome pink or berry lippie and keep it in that color family, but have a much deeper version. Now I have three darker shades to play with to achieve that goal. I especially like the idea of using Vain to add a deeper, bluer tone to something. Shades with blue undertones are much more flattering to my skin tone and make my teeth look whiter. occ sebastian and lydia

I’ve been holding on to this post for a little while- I’ve actually had these products for several weeks but I wanted to get a chance to play with them a little bit before posting on them. In the springtime, I had purchased the OCC All Star Lip Tar Minis and I’ve loved using them to mix and match other shades. I may not have taken chemistry, but I feel like I can mix like Bill Nye himself when I get in front of my Lip Tars!

On rotation, you can see Lydia lip liner lightened with the Lament Lip Tar, Manhunter all by itself, and Mahunter layered with Pagan and Covet to make a deeper vampy purple.

    Ever since I discovered lip tars I’ve been obsessed. I wish my wallet agreed with my brain for getting them ALL, haha.

    I love GIF at the end, you really made these colors work for you. I wouldn’t wear these alone so it’s good to know you can create some gorgeous shades with them.

    I love the little mixing suggestions you gave. I often forget that you can actually mix the shades to create something completely unique.
