The Makeup Show NYC, Installment 2-Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

If there was one brand that truly caught my eye at The Makeup Show, it was Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. I have heard about the brand before but didn’t know much about them.

I sent out a tweet about OCC and got a slew of responses; many in which were telling me to try the lip tar. And like a good blogger….I listen to the peoples!

Some quick tidbits about OCC:

-The line was born in November 2004.

-All of their products are 100% Vegan and Cruelty-Free, and are also free of parabens and other harsh preservatives.

-Their products are for professional make-up artists and make-up enthusiasts alike.

And if you’ve gotten this far and you’re wondering what makes them unique, check this out:

Wowsers! The loose colour concentrates ($10) are amazing. From the glitters to the mattes I find that they are all highly pigmented and ready for action in any way you choose to use them. Be it on the eyes, nails or on the body, giiiirl…you can best believe that you are getting a colorful piece of heaven.

I snagged Burning-described as a bright coral with subtle violet shimmer.

Stunning, right?

I saved the best for last. The Lip Tars ($12.50).

I think that everyone needs one of these. They are so much fun! And highly pigmented beyond belief. They are as pigmented as lipsticks but go on like lip glosses. You can try wearing these babies solo but they may scare you at first. Mix them with other glosses and you can create an array of beautiful lippy colors.

I know y’all are like, “B!! Where are the photos of the products on you?”

Relax my little blueberry shortcakes. I will definitely be incorporating these babies in upcoming FOTDs.

What do you think? A fan of OCC? Never heard of them? Wanna try?

Tell me!

Because even your personality should be pigmented,

  • adorepink

    I want to try thier lip tars. Cant wait to see them on…

  • Miss Yaya

    i unforunately missed all the colors that i wanted b/c i didn’t think they would sell out – damn me and my partying!

    i am however slightly bitter that they don’t go on as lipgloss b/c that would be perfect

  • Sparklecrack Central

    This is quite dangerous for me to find…

    …but fun!! (I can’t decide if the name is ironic, a sad commentary, or a sadly ironic commentary.)


    i really gotta try a lip tar from occ. they look so cool.

  • Betty Girl Make-Up

    were they selling the products at the show at a discount or regular price? i thought i read that EnKore got his lip tars for $5 each. i'm hoping this is the case and the IMATS Los Angeles 2009 will be offering the same kind of deals!!

  • B

    Betty—> Really? Mine were $10!! Mannn….I missed out. :( I so wish I was going to IMATS. Enjoy!
