“Naeem’s inspiration this season was actress Lauren Bacall. We liked the idea of this classic, old Hollywood Naeem girl but a bit more ‘undone’. Fresh skin, glossy eyes and a stained lip is where we landed.” explained Boehmer.

Skin was evened out with Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Radiant Creamy Concealer and set with Soft Velvet Loose Powder (new for Spring 2015). Cheeks were lightly sculpted with the right side of Fervor Dual Intensity Blush (new for Spring 2015).

On the eyes, Cappadoce Matte Multiple and Coconut Grove Matte Eyeshadow were used to add depth (Mambo Eyeliner and Bengali Matte Eyeshadow were used on models with darker skintones). Lashes were coated with Larger Than Life Volumizing Mascara and Triple X Lip Gloss was dabbed on the eyelid for a glossy sheen. Finally, lips were painted with Ingrid Audacious Lipstick using a brush for a stained look.

Both hands and feet received essie fiji, a creamy pale pink shade, for an elegant but not too glamorous touch.

OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tar Review, Swatches and Photos

June 12th, 2013

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

During The Makeup Show Chicago 2013, I finally got to see the OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars in person and just as expected, they are AWESOMEEEEE!

OCC Stained Gloss Lip Tars Review

Like the original Lip Tar, the Stained Gloss Lip Tar is enriched with Castor Seed Oil, Hemp Oil, Peppermint Oil, Vitamin E and without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. There are six colors available, including five wearable shades that are perfect for the summer and a neutralizing color.

Voyeur is a bright yellow. It can be used to neutralize other colors or worn alone for a fun look.
Androgyne is a bright cool-toned orange.
Jealous is a vibrant red with just a touch of pink.
Metais a bright orange red and and almost identical to Jealous.
New Wave is a neon pink.
Rhythm Box is a dark cherry red.

The gel formula went on slightly runnier and left behind a lightweight, glossy finish that was more translucent and forgiving. One tiny drop gave intense color but you could blot it down for a stained look. I also find the formula to be slightly less drying compared to the original and I was able to get 2-3 hours of wear with one single application.
