OCC Lip Tars

So I’m a M.A.C. fiend, but I’m having a lot of fun discovering other brands.  One of the hottest makeup lines out there is Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.  OCC is a vegan-friendly, cruelty-free professional makeup artists line and they are best known for their uber-popular LIp Tars.  These tars or glosses are made to be mixed with each other for customized lip colours so you find the colours are very intense, and are not really made to be worn by themselves.  A very little goes a loooooong way and the chemist in me absolutely cyah wait to start mixing!  They also make loose colour pigments, nail polishes, complementary lip balms and airbrush sets.

So I just got word that they may be coming to the Big Apple.  They are supposed to be opening up shop on 27th Street and its going to open to the public!!!!! OMG! I’ll keep you posted!!!!

OCC is also available in Trinidad, at Katrianna’s Makeup Studio, 9 St. Ann’s Road, St. Ann’s, Tel: (868) 682-7758.
