Obsessive Review

Forgive me readers for I have sinned. It has been two weeks since posting a review and I couldn’t be more apologetic! 🙂

Over with that are we?

Let’s move on to bigger and better things. And by that I mean OCC Cosmetics!

I first got to try them at the NY Makeup Show and have fallen under an OBSESSIVE
fixation on the line ever since. Look at all those colors!

What it is:

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics started out in November, 2004 with just two lip balms, cult-favorites Tarred & Feathered. Ultra-sheer black and white tones respectively, they were designed to either darken and define or lighten and prime the lips, created in response to a über-natural trend in beauty, when even the most neutral of lipsticks was considered too much color.

The premise was simple: develop a complete line of professional quality cosmetics inspired by professional makeup solutions, not only for artists but for makeup enthusiasts everywhere. To set the brand apart in an already over-crowded marketplace meant committing to innovation in both colour and texture, as well as concept and selection. What this means to the consumer: A refreshing, gimmickless approach. No false claims, no empty promises, just great makeup.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is the line for those who colour outside of theirs. For when you’re over the counterâ„¢.

Review (5 highest, 1 lowest):

Packaging: 4 out of 5 (very simple & to the point)

Price: 4 out of 5 (a little on the pricier side but well worth the money)

Quality: 5 out of 5

Overall: 4 out of 5

The product(s):

The OCC ‘loose color concentrates’super pigmented!


$10.00 each

If you can’t see: the colors are
(left to right, top to bottom)
auric
, clove,
iced
, slate (glitter),
clover
, navy (glitter)


These swatches are done dry on bare skin.

Ooh and aah all around.

And they have nail polish!


$8.00

The green one (Wasabi) is the one that I have. These polishes are great on color pigmentation/collection and color selection but aren’t as thick as I’d like them to be. They’re a bit thin and runny for my liking.

Last but not least, who can live without OCC Lip Tars?


in Grandma
$12.50 each

These go on very strong. I mean that in pigment and in amount as well. This swatch of mine is enough for three applications. If you’re looking for something high gloss – you might need to put clear gloss on top of this as it has more of a matte look.

Also great to use as a lip stain or to mix with other Lip Tars.

Verdict:

This is a great brand to have by your side. The most impressive product by them is the loose powder for eyes & the lip tars. I find it to be on the pricier side, but it is a green company, and it does need to be used sparingly as each tiny bit of this product packs a huge punch. Either way, y’all need to get to investing b/c the judge says so!

Check out QueenOfBlendingMUA’s YouTube channel to see her mix and swatch many of the lip tars & some interesting mixes on Temptalia.

And while you’re at it, check out the OCC website for a limited time 30% off discount over $30+!
