(Review & Photos): Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Walk on the Bold Side

A little goes a long way, but you really have no idea what that means until you’ve held a tube of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in your hand.

The lip tars are legendary, and they make your lips (eyes and cheeks too) look as though you’ve spent a lot of time layering them with color. But they’re made with natural ingredients too: a combination of hemp oil, peppermint oil and Vitamin E reduce both irritation and signs of aging.

Obsessive Compulsive also is known for its body painting mastery, and you can choose from intense colors like SLIGHTLY GREYED MAUVE/PINK and TRUE HENNA-TONED RED; they work for all skin tones.

The pink lip tar with gray undertones can be worn during the daytime and evening. The henna- toned red can be worn for a date with the best friends or to a dinner party. It depends on what you are comfortable wearing on your lips and why you’re wearing it. When applied, it is important to squeeze just a dab on your lips, otherwise you’ll end up looking like RuPaul.

In the warmer months, it’s fine to wear natural make- up, but a pop of color using the OCC LOOSE COLOUR CONCENTRATES does wonders. The eye shadows are broken up with the intention of being multi- purpose products. You can also apply the cosmetic glitters to the lips in the right amount, so that your lips will shimmer in a way regular lip gloss won’t.

Each lip tar retails for $13 and can be purchased on the OCC website, along with the eye shadows and much more. To read about another skincare brand that will complement your bold makeup, check out BeautyRx.
