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 counter™.“
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
If you can’t see: the colors are
(left to right, top to bottom)
iced, slate (glitter),
clover, navy (glitter)
Ooh and aah all around.
And they have nail polish!
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.
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!
