It’s officially the holiday season, and metallic makeup is creeping its way into my kit as a wintery do. While I’ve been excited about the foray of festive box sets and limited edition seasonal goodies gracing the makeup counters and shop shelves, one of the collections I’ve been most excited about is Metallurgy—a set of six new metallic Lip Tars from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.
The introduction of Lip Tar to the cosmetics world has brought endless possibility to lip color lovers of all tastes. The mixable liquid concentrate dries to a paint-like finish with unbeatable color payoff. The new edition of shimmering tars proves that OCC still has a lot of tricks up their sleeve.
The Metallurgy collection contains a well-rounded group of likeable and lust-worthy shades including Super NSFW—a gold-sparkling red, Yaoi—a glittering, silver-based Barbie pink, Authentic—a pennywise copper, Triptych—a neutral gold, Iced—an opaque silvery white, and Electric Grandma—a metallic version of their best selling coral shade, our favorite if not for the name alone.
The finish is subtle but reflective with a pearl-like shine and the subtlest hint of glitter, noticeable only if before a kiss under the mistletoe. The shades wear just as long as their matte counterparts and leave behind a light coating of sparkle when wiped away. I also love how mixable the metal shades are with my other lip products, allowing me to add a shimmering base to all my favorite lipsticks. The variety of festive shades guarantees you’ll be sparkling from morning till night—through work to family gatherings, from downtime with friends to wild holiday parties. Shine on OCC.
