|from left: Cinnamon Dust, Black Scandal, Arabian Night, Golden Olive|
Cinnamon Dust: A matte warm grey with subtle green undertones. It does have some shimmer particles, which I find doesn’t really show up on my eyes (ie ends up looking totally matte). Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
Black Scandal: Shimmery midnight blue, incredibly pigmented and smooth. Words cannot express how beautiful this colour is. Just a note of warning though- the shadow is fairly soft so apply with a light hand otherwise you will look like a (stylish) raccoon.
Arabian Night: Sparkly cool-toned purple. fairly pigmented, and reasonably smooth.
Golden Olive: metallic duochrome khaki base infused with orange-gold shimmer. Smooth texture, medium pigmentation.
|from left: French Chic, Luxury Brown, Orange Glow|
French Chic: shimmery light silvery sea-green colour. Very smooth texture and good pigmentation.
Luxury Brown: metallic medium-dark rust brown colour. Highly pigmented and very smooth.
Orange Glow: orange gold (similar to MAC melon pigment colour-wise). Not as pigmented as the others, and a little bit chalky.
…and here are some swatches. Some of the colours are a little washed out (sorry!)

When I first got my OCC Lip Tars in the mail, I was hyped up to the eyeballs from all the rave reviews from makeup gurus. I ripped the mail package apart in excitement, whipped out my lip brush, tried both colours on in a frenzy, hated them both, and angrily threw them in my drawer never to be seen again…
