Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has finally opened a retail location in NYC.  For all you Lip Tar fans, you can now find OCC on the Lower East Side at 174 Ludlow Street, between Houston & Stanton.

Inside!

Here is some more information on the new Flagship:

“OCC chose the Lower East Side because it has really become the true hub of all things creative and artistic coming out of New York.  The neighborhood’s latest renaissance is producing cutting edge design fashion, designers, salons and art galleries, and that’s where OCC needs to be.” David Klasfeld, CEO/Creative Director, OCC
 


Walking into the flagship store you will see an array of makeup in bold and dramatic colours with pops of neon and saturated pastels, radiating from every corner. Professional Makeup Artists are standing by to offer private consultations, makeup applications, and will even show you how to perfect airbrush makeup. Customers will not want to miss OCC’s Mixing Bar where they can custom create their perfect shade, or recreate their favorite colour. Gone are the days anyone has to live without their favorite discontinued beauty product!  With over 36 shades of Lip Tars, highly pigmented loose eyeshadows, and an array of vibrant nail polishes, OCC’s flagship store is sure to become the next beauty haven for any makeup artist or beauty buff.  
 

I attended the Grand Opening last week and we were also introduced to the new Fall 2011 collection, Pretty Boy, which by the way is amazing! I especially love the nail lacquers!!  Actually very girly but not too sweet!
