Last week I had the pleasure of attending the OCC Moderncraft Collection launch event and it was a great time! Not only did I get to visit with fantastic bloggers and listen to a performance by the collection’s mascot, Calpernia Addams, but I also got to learn about OCC’s newest collection.
Moderncraft, OCC’s Fall 2013 Color Collection was inspired by 1920’s Berlin and is a collection that echoes the aesthetic innovation and cultural liberation of Weimer Berlin with a contemporary execution in vibe and textures.
This collection consists six new Lip Tar shades and is the first time that OCC releases a Lip Tar collection in all three finishes: metallic, matte, and stained gloss. As with all OCC Lip Tars you can expect for these to carry TONS of pigment and have the longevity of a long wear lipstick. OCC also released six new Nail Lacquers which are 5-free, extremely pigmented, quick drying, and super long lasting as well as six new colors in their Cream Color Concentrate range which can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks.
ROLE PLAY: Deep Maroon with Red Pearl (Metallic)
MEIN HERR: Crème Fraiche Beige (Stained Gloss)
BLACK METAL DAHLIA: Blackened Burgundy with Red Pearl (Metallic)
DEKADENT: Translucent Crushed Blueberry (Stained Gloss)
SEBASTIAN: Plum-Toned Taupe (Matte)
ANITA: Browned Burgundy (Matte)
Retail Price: $18 USD
I was REALLY excited to get my hands on this Lip Tar collection because I think each shade is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for fall. Don’t get me wrong – that violet grey is a little out there but I think it could be fun to mix with other Lip Tar colors to get a cool toned effect. I’m still playing around with it for sure. Overall the OCC Moderncraft Lip Tar collection is 100% perfect and provides all the awesome things we’re looking for in a product: pigmentation, great wear time, and a variety of colors. What more could you ask for?

The Moderncraft Collection Nail Lacquer just screams “Fall” to me. It is full of right, vampy tones with a few pops of color that can help you transition into the holiday season. While I didn’t get a chance to get my hands on these particular polishes I did play around with them at the OCC Launch and I can tell you this: they’re GORGEOUS! I have a few other shades of OCC Nail Lacquer in my personal collection and I love how pigmented they are and how easy they are to apply.
GRASSHOPPER: Grass Blade Green
DISTRICT: True Yellow-Based Red

VICE: True White
MELODY: True Royal Blue
BAUHAUS: True Black

Let me just tell you: these Cream Color Concentrates are something else! They are SO INSANELY PIGMENTED and apply like a dream. They have such a fantastic creamy texture that is really easy to work with but I’ve found that if you want to layer the color up (the swatches above are after one swipe, by the way) that you should wait for the first layer to dry a bit before going in with your second. These products last forever and have a variety of uses. I can’t wait to mix and match them and create some fun lip & eye colors! OCC Cream Color Concentrates
The entire OCC Moderncraft Collection is now available on OCC’s official website.
