Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technopagan Lip Tar Review

Wearing Cover FX CC Cream in X-tra Light, Darling Girl eyeshadows and OCC Lip Tar in Technopagan

This shade is not for the mild. Technopagan is described as a metallic blackened purple with blue pearl and I think that fits it perfectly. I just love how this color looks with my hair. It’s perfect!

For me, this was one of the easier lip tar shades to apply. I do wish it had a matching pencil though!

My Tips for Application

  1. Start by exfoliating your lips.
  2. Moisturize your lips after you exfoliate.
  3. Blot off any excess moisture.
  4. Apply OCC Lip Tar in Clear as a base or use OCC Colour Pencil in Anti-Feathered (clear) or another pencil you like.
  5. With a lip brush, take a tiny rain drop amount of Technopagan (or any other lip tar shade you want to use) and use that to paint the thinnest layer of color possible on your lips. If you get more product than you anticipated, start at the center inner part of your lips and work your way out.
  6. Blot if necessary.

I need to talk about the value of lip tars. These are an amazing deal for the price. You’re getting .33 oz of product for $18. Compare that to Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks, which are $22 for .09 oz, MAC lipsticks (not cruelty free) that are $16 for .10 oz, Ardency Inn, which are $25 for .12 oz, and Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, which are $21 for .4 oz. Only the Too Faced Melted lipsticks come close for the value.

I’m really glad I picked up this shade because, while I think it’s a daring choice for Fall and I absolutely love it, it’s a color I can see myself wearing year round.

What do you think of Technopagan? Would you wear this lip tar, or stick to the matching nail polish?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette

About the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette
The perfect fall and holiday palette designed in collaboration with makeup artist Tamanna Roashan, @dressyourface. This collection of versatile shadows constitutes Tamanna’smust have” shades to achieve her most requested looks on any skin tone. The combination of warm and cool tones combine to create anything from smokey eyes to intricate cut creases, all from a single palette. Specially formulated, high-impact pigments in rich neutrals and shimmering jewel tones go on smoothly and eliminate the need for overbuilding when applying.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette

What Tamanna Roashan said about each of the colors in the Tamanna palette

FRESH: a full pigmented creamy matte, my personal preference to highlight a clean bold browbone without looking like a shiny disco ball

BLUSH: a smooth shimmery highlight that I love to add a pop of shine to the tear duct or all over the lid for a clean yet light-reflective look

VENEZIA: a gorgeous teal blue shimmer for the perfect pop of bold color inspired by the exotic jewels of India and the Middle East

GILDED: a rich antique gold that glides on like a cream with beautiful metallic finish CUSTOM: a highly versatile antique metallic grey-taupe which I love to use for both soft and dramatic smokey eye looks

SANGRIA: a fully pigmented rich cranberry shimmer which glides on effortlessly and can blend into a softer rose hue

BENGAL: a silky-soft matte warm brown, my ultimate crease shade for every look

CHOCOLATE: a heavy long-lasting dark brown to create depth to any look without having to build

CHINA ROSE: the perfect blend of gold, pink, and coral… All in one silky satiny shade inspired by South Asian textiles

NOIR: the blackest black you will ever use… This super matte pigment is out of this world and so intense you won’t believe your eyes. This was the shade I was most excited about when it finally came from the lab!

And there you have it… The science and beauty behind the #TamannaPalette! Now you know why it took a year to create.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette

Source: Tamanna @dressyourface

The shades I’m most interested in are China Rose, Venezia, Fresh, Gilded and Sangria. I’m guessing I might like the mix of these colors better than the Amrezy palette. I’m not sure if it will outshine the Maya Mia palette. However, the colors inside look pretty and the way Tamanna describes them they sound lovely.

I believe the Tamanna, Maya Mia and Amrezy are all limited edition palettes. The Catwalk palette is available exclusively from Anastasia.net.

You can purchase the Tamanna palette or Maya Mia palette now from Sephora.

Will you be picking up the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette? Which is your favorite of the collaboration palettes?

Pretty and Polished It's Funnier in Enochian Collection

Today I’ve got the Pretty and Polished It’s Funnier in Enochian Collection to show you. This is inspired by one of my all time favorite shows, Supernatural.  Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) makes my heart flutter.

In case you haven’t seen Dean do the Harlem Shake.


Pretty and Polished Hunter Green (Get It?)

Pretty and Polished Hunter Green (Get It?)  Swatch

 

Hunter Green (Get it?)
a dusty medium dark green creme
My Take
A deep rich mossy green creme. Pretty. Try this with black tips.

Pretty and Polished I Can Quit Anytime I Want

Pretty and Polished I Can Quit Anytime I Want Swatch

I Can Quit Anytime I Want
a deep dark red jelly that dries matte
My Take
Deep blood red. In 2 coats it was slightly streaky (I think because of the matte finish), but it looked good in 3.

Pretty and Polished Send in the Clowns

Pretty and Polished Send in the Clowns Swatch

 

Send in the Clowns
a metallic glitter confection
My Take
I’ve never liked clowns. They terrified me as a child and I’m not fond of them as an adult.  This glitter topper is nothing to be scared of. It’s lots of fun bright glitter in different shapes and sizes. The orange definitely makes me think of clown hair.

Pretty and Polished Not For Prophet

Pretty and Polished Not For Prophet Swatch

Not For Prophet
a black, blue, grey and white glitter topper
My Take
I love the blue and grey glitters in this mix. It would look stunning over an orange or a purple.

Pretty and Polished Tools of the Trade

Pretty and Polished Tools of the Trade Swatch

Tools of the Trade
gunmetal holographic
My Thoughts
Deep gunmetal grey holographic. This is gorgeous in 3 coats and I like the depth of the shade.

Pretty and Polished It's Funnier in Enochian Collection

To me the standout shades are Hunter Green (Get It?), Tools of the Trade and Not for Prophet.

I need to make the time to do blackened tips with Hunter Green! How would you use these Fall colors?

Best Fall Lipsticks and Nail Polishes

Happy Makeup Wars Monday! Today I’m sharing my picks for the Best Fall Lipsticks and Nail Polishes. With so many to choose from I wanted to help you narrow down your choices to the ones I find most unique and fun.

Lipsticks First!

NARS Ingrid
merlot. See my review.

One stroke color. Deep vampy shade. Comfortable to wear. What’s not to love?

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technopagan
metallic blackened purple with blue pearl

This shade looks AMAZING with my hair.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan
blackened purple creme. See my review.

Love this color!

Bite Beauty Amaretto
peachy nude.

Everyone needs a good nude in their arsenal and I find this one to be lovely.

Bite Beauty Aubergine
eggplant

Another great shade that’s deep, yet not too deep. If you want a Fall shade but don’t want to go too dark this is it.

Kat Von D Gothica
sparkling bronze

I love this unusual shade even though the formula is not perfect.

Nyx Cosmetics Temptress
deep royal purple.

I wore this out Saturday night and loved it. It’s a true purple shade.

Nyx Cosmetics She Devil
deep plum

Another great deep shade, reminds me a bit of NARS Train Bleu

Nyx Cosmetics Bewitching
burgundy with blue undertone

Such a pretty color!

Limnit Lipstick in Goodness Graycious
a bold, semi-matte, opaque, vegan, grey brown neutral

This is just such an unusual and neat shade.

Limnit Lipstick in Olly Olly Oxen Free
a bold, semi-matte, opaque, vegan oxblood berry

Because of the berry, this is a lighter shade of burgundy / oxblood to wear.

Limnit Lipstick in Bewitching Hour
a bold, semi-matte, opaque, vegan, dark midnight blue

I love this shade because it’s deep but not too dark.

My Nail Polish Picks

KBShimmer Leaf of Faith
A deep Cabernet red jelly is the backdrop for glitters in red, orange and gold. The glitters in this polish add depth and interest with subtle changes in color as the jelly picks up the colors of the glitter. A scattering of holographic glitters gives this polish sparkle and shine.

I rarely wear red nail polish these days but this one is beautiful.

KBShimmer A Raisin to Live
Deep and dark, A Raisin To Live is a deep burgundy, blacken Ox Blood colored polish full of holographic sparkles.

This is a stunning deep shade.

KBShimmer Jack
Jack is ablack jelly with orange hex glitters, a scattering or orange micro slices and black hexes and shreds.

Black + pretty glitter makes me happy.

KBShimmer Up and Cunning
A deep teal, almost forest green in color, Up & Cunning is perfect in 2-3 coat

It’s a teal blue, how could I not love it?

Pretty & Polished Hunter Green (Get It?)
Inspired by the tv show Supernatural, a dusty medium to dark green creme. Inspired by Sam and Dean being the most awesome hunters ever.

Try this dark green creme with black tips.

ILNP Abundance
This polish effortlessly shifts through super vivid hues of red, orange, bronze. and gold.

This polish is absolutely enchanting to stare at.

 

ILNP Black Orchid
Black Orchid is an absolutely gorgeous deep burgundy / purple holographic polish

I love the finish on this polish and the color is perfect for fall.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Technopagan
blackened purple with blue pearl metallic. See my review.

This color matches my hair perfect and I love it to bits. It’s the only polish I brought with me on my trip.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pagan
blackened purple creme

Such a deep purple that I think looks amazing.

NARS Insidious
Blackened bronze. See my review.

This is an awesome twist on black that I think looks elegant.

What will you be wearing this Fall on your lips and tips? Let me know below!

Question of the Week: When a beauty product is labeled “Limited Edition” (LE), are you more inclined to purchase it?

Answer: If it’s a teal or a purple, I’m likely to buy it no matter what. Otherwise, I try to evaluate the product based off of the amount of product you’re getting for the price and the quality.

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated in Luminous and Aura Swatches Comparison

Luminous vs. Aura

Urban Decay Naked Illuminated in Luminous and Aura Swatches Comparison

Luminous – champagne shimmer with iridescent shimmer
Aura – soft pink shimmer with golden iridescent sparkle.

Luminous reads as a light silvery champagne on my skin. Aura comes across as a pale peachy pink with golden shimmer on my skin. I like both shades, but I think Aura is especially pretty because it adds some warmth to my skintone (which is bad if my rosacea is flaring, but good otherwise).

While the original Naked Illuminated highlighter was an Ulta exclusive, this one will be available everywhere that Urban Decay is carried.

How will you choose to get your glow on?

The Perversion + LSD pencil is a match made in Heaven. Seriously, Perversion is my favorite black from Urban Decay. It makes a great base on your lid if you’re playing with duochrome shades. LSD is a long time favorite of mine. The turquoise sparkle is gorgeous in it. I like the Black Market and Tornado duo, too. I’m not a fan of Zero, but that’s because Perversion is amazing.

I think the concept of pairing black + some of the UD bright shades is genius. I would have chosen Ether instead of Smoke, and Scorch instead of Demolition.

What do you think of the Black Magic pencil set? What shades would you like to see paired together?

Urban Decay 10 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil Set Swatches

Left to Right – Stargazer, Glitter Rock, Gonzo, Vacancy, Voodoo, Moonspoon, Mugshot, Faint, Smokeout, Perversion.

I love Gonzo! It’s gorgeous. It’s not as dark as the eyeshadow but it’s still pretty. I like Vacancy, which is a gorgeous teal. I looooove Voodoo, it’s purple! Moonspoon is pretty. Glitter Rock is more pinky brown than I expected. Stargazer is a pretty pale gold. I can see Mugshot, Faint and Smokeout being very popular.

I think if you’re looking for new eyeliner pencils or an avid Urban Decay fan, you will love this set.
