OCC Lip Tar and Nail Color in Power Plant

(**OCC products provided for review consideration**)
Yay Friday!! 

  Today I have my very first OCC nail color evar! OCC is a brand that I've had a major crush on for a while now. I am a HUGE fan of Lip Tars and I've read nothing but fantastic things about their pigments and nail color. Well, recently OCC released an awesome new collection (Sci-Fi Lullabies) and I got a chance to try out Power Plant. This is their new shimmery-metallic Sage Green nail and lip color. All I can say is OMGWOW! 
 I kinda love the picture above. I would have never thought I would have liked Green lips on me! I need to practice applying lip tars, especially this shimmery ones. I should have done a light coat of concealer on my lips to bring out more of the Green in the lippy... Anywho, Power Plant lip tar is a beautiful, minty shade of soft Green with strong metallic shimmer. It's a bit sheer (when compared to my creme lip tars) but it can built up easily. I do like that it  is slightly sheer as it makes it versatile in terms of layering, gradients and such.

 And here is OCC Power Plant nail color. The nail version of Power Plant is a more vivid shade of Green. I would call this a Spearmint Green. The shimmer in this shade is just amazing! I love that Silvery-Green-Blue micro shimmer that seems to float over the green base color. When you read about "glowy" colors... THIS is what we are talking about ♥. The formula on this shade is incredibly smooth and even. I only needed Two effortless coats for full opacity. I.LOVE.This.Color! This is everything I wanted Barielle Snap Dragon to be and MORE. 

 And here is a swatch of Power Plant lip tar. I will have better pictures soon. But I do really like this color and the soft, pastel-ness of it all. Right on trend for Spring!! I hope I master this lip tar soon because I really want to wear it out and scare all the old peeps in my town lol!!! 

 What is a brand that you have always loved, even before getting to try it out? Mine were Sugarpill (OMG how I lemmed Sugarpill!!), OCC and BFTE Cosmetics. And now that I am familiar with all Three brands, I have nothing but praise for their biz ethics and fantastic products! 

 And how about "unusual" lip colors? Would you rock a Green lip?

  1. I love OCC! I have six polishes from them (including Power Plant) and absolutely love every one of them.

    I'm not sure if I could rock the green lip tar though. I did see one blogger who mixed the green with different (more wearable) shades of OCC Lip Tar to make new colors that turned out to be really pretty.

  3. Oooh did you wear the green lips on St. Patty's Day? That would be awesome! :)

    Love the polish...don't think I could do the lippy though!

  4. Well, that is certainly different. Not quite sure what I think of it. I really need to see the green lips done with the rest of the face otherwise it is just odd. I love green and think maybe this has potential though.

  5. Unusual lip colors tend to remind me of my gothy high school days... I had a black and a purple that I used all the time. And then I outgrew gothy and haven't used them since, except for costume purposes.

    I might have to try some new stuff, I have gotten into a bit of a beauty rut... and I do love unusual in general!

  9. Did you just put on one layer of the Power Plant? I really like the green, but I think I'd like it to be more opaque. I'm not sure if I'd be brave enough to wear it out in public, though! I bought a bunch of sample sized Lip Tars from a girl on eBay (http://bit.ly/14Wff0R) and I just got a bunch of nudes, which I love!
