NB: Nothing to declare.

This season, glossy, brightly pigmented lips are the go-to look!  Everyone wants staying power.  OCC has added a new product to their lip colour line called Stained Gloss.   It’s described as a gloss with the pigment potency of a Lip Tar with a casual glossy finish (from the Sephora site).  These have a pigmented translucent, lacquered quality to them.

OCC Stained Gloss!

Here are the swatches (from left to right).

Voyeur, Meta, Jealous, Androgyne, Rhythm Box, New Wave

Definitely check them out, especially if you find the original Lip Tars are a little ‘much’ for you.  They retail for US$18 and are available now from OCC’s website, their flagship and from Sephora.

Let me know what you think!
