Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand that I found several years ago and since then they have blown up and create some amazing products and shades. The cruelty-free vegan line has rich pigments, incredible staying power and can create both beauty and editorial looks.
There award winning lip tar has become a huge hit, Lip Tar is a hybrid of a lipstick and a lip gloss, the pigment is so saturated that a little goes a long way. I promise this is one where you really want to apply with a light hand.
To my surprise I was very interested when I learned that OCC was releasing a new color Lip Tar and it would make its debut at San Diego Comic Con. Luckily San Diego is my home town so I sent my brother on the mission to acquire the Tar before it hit the shelves. Why did I go nuts for this??
“Fragmented Alice” Lip Tar is a take On Alice in Wonderland. Symbolist painter Gail Potocki, helped create the color, Inspired by Potocki’s uniquely macabre take on the Alice in Wonderland mythology. The color is a metallic green, hints of gold and something that is fresh and new. OCC describes the color as “acid-green, gold laced metallic”. Packaged with an applicator for $14 USD.
Keeping true with the formula of Lip Tar it is glossy and has a shimmery effect. Yes the color is definitely green and does have a gold sheen in it. If you are not sure that you are ready to rock such a strong color, it looks very cool on top of a neutral pink shade and gives your lips a reason for a second glance. However, if you are not inspired by the color then look into all of the Lip Tar shades and pick a fun one that you would love.
OCC will be conjuring up a limited edition collection full of curious colors inspired by the world of ‘Fragmented Alice’.
