    My @JLo Goin in Look @Occmakeup @ChillyJilly1

    It all started at the VMA’s I guess, when the NSYNC performance came on, I went into the archives to look up so old favorites like Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, JLo and the whole gamut.  Then I posted a JLo pic for an early edition of #throwbackthurs and my girl LivLaughLauren said Jlo will always remind her of me and I of her!  When we were at Western, we would be blasting Jlo all day everyday… Man! That was 2002 I think ah!! Time flies… Jennifer Lopez is timeless, ageless and my all time fav.

    A random Thursday can be inspired by Jennifer Lopez!

    Metallurgy by @OCCMakeup

    After three years of intensive product development, OCC is proud to introduce a whole new breed of Lip Tar. Infused with state of the art hi-resolution metallic pigments, the unparalleled opacity has gone high-voltage electric with a reflective shimmer finish.

    I am so excited for all the Holiday 2012 beauty products. If anyone wants to buy me something for Christmas, a Sephora gift card will do! Thanks 🙂

    When I first saw these on Temptalia, I was so excited to try these for myself! I love LIP TAR and I think these colors are so festive and fun. Here are the 6 colors from the Metallurgy Collection.

    First up, ICED. This is a metallic white liptar, a PURE WHITE FROST METALLIC. This looks almost like a sheer lilac with the natural pink of my lips. Wearable and oh so innocent.

    Triptych is a photography term that means 3 photos that make one. It is the liptar that is a TRUE JEWELRY GOLD METALLIC. You can use a good gold liquid eyeliner as a lipliner for this. I used the Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in Diamond Gold.

    Yaoi is probably my fave! It is similar to Nylon and Anime but with a metallic sheen. Perfectly pink pearlescence makes everything better!

    Electric Grandma is great for every complexion. A METALLIC SEQUEL TO GRANDMA, a coral that is wearable for the holidays, into spring and probably summer too. Wish I had this for the wedding I went to in September.

    Super NSFW is a twist on the classic red. Not Safe For Work but safe for every other occasions like kissing under the mistletoe… The golden speckles in it is not obvious until you wipe the lip tar off your lips. It is described as A METALLIC SEQUEL TO NSFW.

    Authentic is the most wearable shade and it is a FULL BRONZE/COPPER METALLIC. This one reminds me of what I rocked in 11th grade when I was trying to be Jenny from the block.

    Since its launch in 2009, OCC fans worldwide have been clamoring for a metallic-finish Lip Tar. To match that demand OCC looked to the natural foods movement to find a mineral-derived ingredient to keep the highest-opacity metallic pigments in a luxurious, weightless suspension. The result? A Lip Tar formula that requires even less product than ever before! Remember: a little goes a long, strong way!

    PRO TIP: Apply the smallest possible bead of LIP TAR with our Precision Lip Brush for an unparalleled metallic finish in a fully opaque yet lightweight layer of smooth and hydrating lip perfection polish! Want even more shine? Add a thin layer OCC ‘Clear’ Lip Tar, also the perfect primer, overtop of your metallic Lip Tar lip look.

    So much fun! The perfect stocking stuffer for the beauty queen in your life.

     You can get these at Sephora or on occmakeup.com for $16.
