Unknown Pleasures

FALL 2014 – From the innovators behind the cult-favorite liquid lipstick Lip Tar, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics unleashes a range of shades and textures that explores the boundaries between light and shadow. ‘Unknown Pleasures’ is OCC’s Fall/Winter Colour Collection that not only brings together six all-new Lip Tar shades to Sephora, but will be the first to introduce six limited-edition Nail Lacquer shades to participating stores!

The ‘Unknown Pleasures’ collection captures seasonal trend as created by OCC on the runways of New York Fashion Week, with shades that made their original debut at the Fall/Winter 2014 Collections. ‘Unknown Pleasures’ offers a range of colours that promise to tease and tempt the senses, with chic neutrals like ‘Lament’ and ‘Covet’, to ultra-modern vamp shades like the Matte and Metallic duo of deep purples, ‘Pagan’ and ‘Technopagan’. In addition to the six all-new Lip Tar Mattes and Metallics and coordinating Nail Lacquer shades, ‘Unknown Pleasures’ delivers online-exclusive offerings as well: two new Cosmetic Colour Pencil shades!

Actor and musician Deven Green returns to OCC, taking on her darkest roles yet as the two faces of ‘Unknown Pleasures’.
