Yes! I am back again with unconventional lip colors. What can I say? I think they look cool and I'm having fun with them.
I had my eyes on a couple of the new OCC lip tars Unknown Pleasures collection and as soon as they became available on Sephora's website, I placed my order. The two that I got from the collection are Pagan and Technopagan. I decided to get Feathered as well but for mixing and lightening colors. Each tube runs for $18.00 and contains .33 oz / 10 ml. Currently, they are all sold out at Sephora.com.
If you are not familiar with OCC lip tars, they are highly pigmented liquid lipsticks that come in a squeezable tube. They are cruelty-free, vegan, and have a minty scent.
I used my Beauty Insider points to obtain this Boscia Tsubaki Cleansing oil gel and Sephora Rouge Infusion lip stain. The shade I received is Red Essence. Will do a separate review when I get a chance.
And I got a few samples, which is one of the nice things I like about ordering online from Sephora.
At last, here are the swatches of the lip tars I picked up...
Technopagan is, I think, the star of this collection. If you're only going to get one thing from the collection, this would be it. It is a deep blurple with a blue shimmer and metallic finish. I find this shade or finish, a bit thicker than the OCC matte finish so you would need a bit more to be able to spread it across the lips as it will tug a bit if you don't use enough product. It does feel a little drier and stickier...However the end result is pretty bad ass. Looks futuristic. You will get a pinkish purple stain left behind with this shade.
MBA Indigo is similar but brighter and bluer, not as thick or metallic as Technopagan.
Feathered is a plain white lip color. It is fairly pigmented and I was surprised that the application was as even as it looked. I personally wouldn't wear it on its own. I look pretty freaky with white lips, especially when I smile lol, so yeah I decided not to smile. The texture is smooth and applies easily. Doesn't look shiny like the other matte lip tar. This is perfect for mixing and lightening any lipsticks that you have. Giving you more versatility and option to create different shades. You control how light you wanna go. Isn't that awesome?
Here's is a combination of lip color mixture I came up with. I have been looking for a shade like #3 for the longest time and I'm so happy I can just mix up a few colors to get it. I love the medium dark grey #4 I was able to obtain by mixing Feathered with MBA Khol. I have been lemming about getting Space Cake from Melt Cosmetics (but didn't want to pay $19 plus shipping) and this looks pretty similar to it...YESSS!!! Now if I can only get my hands on or mix something similar to Blow, I will feel complete!
There is a total of 6 new shades from the OCC Unknown Pleasures collection. Did you find any that appeals to you? Do you mix lipsticks to get the shade you want? If yes, what is your favorite combo?
