Surprisingly Wearable: OCC Metallic Lip Tar in Role Play

I've long been a fan of OCC's Lip Tars for their high pigmentation and long lasting powers.  The new metallic versions... well, I've been a bit scared to try them, fearing that OCC's penchant for intensity would make for an extremely metallic finish, more robot lip than I was prepared to wear.

They're actually much more subtle than that - the metallic finish is a richer, deeper tone-on-tone metallic effect than the usual silver or gold foil-y overlay.  I'm wearing Role Play, a metallic red which catches the light prettily and gives a really nice alternative to the usual matte cream reds I usually wear.

As you can see, this formula is still very susceptible to feathering - I'm not wearing lip liner in the above photo, and I really should have done.  Feathering aside, the colour lasts well just as the original Lip Tars do.  As always, the pigmentation means that you need the tiniest dot for full, opaque colour, meaning that one £13 tube of Lip Tar should last you a very, very long time.  Find it now at Cocktail Cosmetics.
