Obsessive Compulsive

Ok, so I do suffer from a mild case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder but I am not talking about OCD, but rather my obsession with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, more specifically their Lip Tar (my absolute fav)! For those that are not familiar with Lip Tar it is basically a liquid lipstick that comes in a neat little tube.


Tara is responsible for introducing me to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – no surprise there! Can you see the pattern? Tara has pretty much taken me under her wing in regards to well everything! Then again what are big sisters for?! Thank god for her or who knows what I would look like! Yikes! Besides Lip Tar, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics also carries a bevy of beauty products, all 100% Vegan and Cruelty Free (another plus) for your lips, eyes, complexion, nails and brushes. Their Loose Colour Concentrate is another one of my favorites that I use daily on my eyes – as you can see OCC Makeup has taken over my ever growing makeup bag! I have loved makeup from a very young age which I attribute to my Aunt Michele (a previous makeup aficionado), dancing (due to competitions and dance recitals) and Tara (obvi). As a middle schooler I could often be seen attending a sleepover with makeup and eyeshadow palettes in my overnight bag – every parents worst nightmare! Basically I have created a monster in that I am so used to wearing makeup that I rarely ever want to go out without it! I digress – back to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics! As previously stated, I am in love with their Lip Tars. They are a perfect pop of long lasting color. With this product a little goes a long way and it is definitely recommended that you use a brush to apply or you will be wearing it all over your face and hands (lesson learned). A lip pencil, particularly OCC’s “Anti-Feathered” also helps with keeping the color on your lips and not feathering and/or bleeding (not a good look). The first time I wore OCC’s Lip Tar was when Tara and I were on the train on our way to New York to see our friend, a Rockette, dance in the Radio City Christmas Show. I was complaining (what else is new) about my lip color and Tara whipped out OCC’s Lip Tar in the fabulous Stalker, aka red, color.  I was not a huge fan of red lipstick but I agreed to let her apply it- this is what happens when you are bored on the train! It was Lip Tar love at first site! I am now hooked and currently own 6 tubes and am working on adding to my collection (hello IMATS New York)! The Lip Tars come in several different finishes: matte, metallic and stained gloss. I have tried all three; all are tremendous and offer very different looks. My current favorite color is the Lip Tar Stained Gloss in Rhythm. I wear it often to work, during a night out , shopping or really any day! Especially if I need a mood boost! Lets face it we have all have days where we feel less than stellar and I am telling you that you will instantly feel better sporting OCC’s Lip Tar.

For those that can appreciate a bold lip you will definitely love this product! It goes on smooth and will easily last all day without reapplying! A huge plus for those working girls or busy moms! Check them out here – Seriously trust me!

Sporting OCC Lip Tar at Tara’s Wedding and never reapplying once all day!
