OCC LIP TAR™
$12.50 USD | 10mL - A stunning new innovation in lip color, OCC Lip Tar combines the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. Goes on slick and moist, and dries down to a satin finish. Ultra-saturated in color, OCC Lip Tar contains an unprecedented amount of pigment, so a little goes a very, very long way. An intense yet featherweight layer of color that stands up to the scrutiny of Hi-Def Video and Digital Photography, without ever looking (or feeling!) heavy. Meant to be mixed, OCC Lip Tars come in concise range of colors (and black and white!) for a limitless selection of shades made by you!

Like all of our products, OCC Lip Tar is 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and is also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives. A simple, elegant formula that contains only Castor Oil, Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil, Vitamin E, and intense color pigments, OCC Lip Tar feels as good on the lips as it looks!

Whitz Wordz:
These are SUPER pigmented!!! Wow!! They aren't sticky either, which is nice; and you can mix the colors together to create your own custom lip shades.

Left to Right:
Vintage, Plum, & Grandma



Vintage
Deep, wine-tinged burgundy



Plum
Deep, intense true plum



Grandma
Always classic, cool, clean coral


vintage, plum, & grandma




Vintage



Plum



Grandma
(this is so funny that it's called grandma, because my Nana LOVES bright oranges/corals on her lips)



Grandma rubbed in on the right (when rubbed, it's more like a lipstick finish)


all three colors combined


LOOSE COLOUR CONCENTRATES
$10.00 USD | 2.5g Micronized colour pigments fused with shimmering mica for use on the eyes, and anywhere else on the face and body. These lightweight, ultra-refined, densely pigmented powders apply shimmer smoothly and beautifully, wherever it's needed. Also great dusted over OCC Ink, and mixed with our Primer and Mixing Mediums to create custom (and even airbrushable!) colours.

Whitz Wordz: Some of these shades remind me of MAC eyeshadows and pigments. Definitely a cheaper alternative. I really like foiling these loose colours- they definitely show up more vibrant if foiled (applied wet).




Luster
Shimmering white gold
(reminds me of MAC pigment in Vanilla)
(one of my favorite highlighting shades! a must have for everyone)






Flicker
Beige vs. white gold shimmer
(reminds me of MAC pigment in Melon)






Auric
24k true gold shimmer
(slightly reminds me of MAC e/s in Goldmine)






Glisten
Pale peach/coral shimmer








Burning
Bright coral with subtle violet shimmer
(the is my favorite color out of the collection)
(think MAC's e/s in Coppering mixed with Stars'n'Rockets)












Clover
Deep emerald green






Chlorophyll
Bright, vivid turquoise
(my second fav.)







Elephantine
Pale, dirty silver with subtle pink duochrome






Copperwire
True copper shimmer
(more red in this compared to Brasstacks)
(reminds me of MAC e/s in Antiqued)







Brasstacks
Brassy medium brown
(reminds me of MAC e/s in Bronze)







NAIL LACQUER
$8.00 USD | 0.5 FL OZ A modern colour palette and formulation to match, OCC's professional quality nail lacquers are densely pigmented, quick-drying and super long lasting. Formulated with the Editorial Manicurist in mind, the result is lots of color using very little product for nails that are camera-ready just moments after the application. Available in Satin and Metallic finishes.


Wasabi: Bright chartreuse (satin)
Bone Daddy: Off-white ivory (satin)








So, last night I picked up Dad and Ashli (my step-mom) from the airport.
They went to visit Ashli's family in Michigan; they go a few times a year.
I watched there house, hence the three new youtube videos that are random (watch if you're bored) lol!
They went to New York for a few days, and they brought me back this kick-ass sweatshirt!
reminds me of that song from Andrew WK "I LOVE NEW YORK CITY! OHH YEAH, NEW YORK CITY"





LiLash Review
Week 2
Click HERE to read about Week 1
I haven't seen any huge difference yet, which isn't s shock.
It takes time.
I do notice that my top lashline is turning slightly purple.
Also, my under-eye circles are more of a purplish color as well.

Beware, photos of my eyes without makeup...SCARY!!












Photos of my lashes with mascara.
I used 2 coats of MAC DazzleLash.
No mascara primer.
I curled my lashes with ModelCo's Heated Lash Curler & Shiseido Lash Curler as well.
I noticed that my bottom lashes are growing already!
When I apply this at night to the top lashline- the formula seeps into my bottom lashline as well (from closing my eyes).
So this product helps your bottom lashes grow as well.
My lashes are not curling on their own yet, I still have to use a curler.


I can't wait until my lashes reach the top of my eyebrows! lol
My eyeliner is JW Cosmetics Indelible Gel Liner in Oceanic, topped with Simply Naturals' Motown Mineral Eyeshadow.
All over my lid, I'm wearing MAC MSF in New Vegas.
Brows= MAC Brow Set in Sophisticated

hi whit!

actually i dont know how to keep the stuff when you change layout. what i do is i get a new layout then i go back the layout edit page and i add everything that i lost on my page again. i know its a bit of a long process but thats how i do it ><"

Catherine said...

Oooh I LOVE that coral!

And thanks for the review on the LiLash! It's really cool that it's working on your bottom eyelashes too! Do you think the product is turning your upper lashline purple though? That's a little scary lol...

Cool post :) I also use Lilash and I did a review over 4 weeks, http://www.shanghainesedumpling.com/?cat=499 from my experience your eyelashes won't start growing from the 4th week and then they will grow like crazy and out of control :)

Keep updating looking forward to see your results
