Time to get cracking on some product reviews from The Makeup Show! OCC debuted an innovative new lip gloss earlier this year. Only needing the tiniest amount of product, the Stained Gloss Lip Tar is packed with pigment while maintaining a glossy sheen. And it isn't too sticky, either. In my TMS Blogger Preview gift bag, I received the Mein Herr Stained Gloss Lip Tar from OCC's new Moderncraft collection. I loved the formula, but wasn't completely sold with the color- so I just had to sashay my way to the OCC booth and buy another Stained Gloss color (in New Wave). Bright, punchy color in lip gloss form that lasts a long time? Consider me sold!

Mein Herr is a "creme fraiche nude" (which, in simpler terms, is a nude beige) while New Wave is a "glassy neon pink". Nude lipstick colors in general tend to wash me out and make my lips look freaky, so I wasn't 100% on the Mein Herr lip tar. I do, however, believe that this is an essential color if you have an olive complexion. Nude lipsticks truly look best on people with tanner complexions, whereas on paler girls (such as myself), we look too washed out. New Wave is the lip gloss of my dreams. I only used a drop of color on the swatch below, and I got full coverage of a beautiful pink. When the gloss starts wearing off, I am left with a slight stain on the lips that I cannot complain about.

I am very excited to add these two colors into my lip tar collection. Fellow makeup artists: you need these in your kit. These are two very versatile colors! While I have yet to mix them both together, I imagine they make a very awesome color. These are available for $18 on the Sephora website. Have you ever tried anything from OCC?
