OCC’s Creamy, Intense Cosmetic Colour Pencils Just Might Inspire Hue

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Colour Pencils

The new Cosmetic Colour Pencil line by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

I feel like I’ve been battling with liner all winter long, like this is Westeros and they’re the White Walkers north of the Wall, but it’s mostly just that my skin has been drier than the Atacama, and it’s getting sooo old.

I haven’t been able to wear the long-wearing gel liners I was wearing and loving last spring and summer (they’re too drying), and the only pencils my lash and water lines are tolerating have been the MAC Eye Kohls…

Until now.

These soft, creamy Cosmetic Colour Pencils by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics actually remind me a lot of my beloved MAC Kohls. They glide along my lash lines like gold medal figure skaters across fresh ice.

Ah…

These pigmented pretties, some of which are approved for use on lips and body, while the others are for lips, body and eyes, come in 12 shades, all of them matte. The triple threats (eyes, lips and body) are clear Anti-Feathered, peachy brown Pennyroyal, blackened midnight brown Sybil, true black Tarred, true white Feathered and aquatic blue Pool Boy.

Warm beige Trick, vibrant neon pink Anime, true red NSFW, blackened red Dahlia, coral Grandma and vibrant magenta Hoochie are the ones that just like lips and body…

So far, because I can’t really think of where I’d ever wear them on my body, I’ve been wearing these on my eyes and lips, and I like like ‘em, in large part because the formula agrees with me. The aren’t drying, which is great, and feel comfortable. Plus, I don’t have to apply half a dozen layers to get some really intense color (just one or two), and I can wear the eye-safe ones on my water lines without my eyes tearing up or my skin feeling tight.

Interestingly, these pencils stay “wet” on the skin for a while — a solid 30 minutes or so — so you can really guide and manipulate them if you want to, and yet I wouldn’t call them smudgy, if that makes any sense. They just transfer, for lack of a better word, less than some of the MAC Eye Kohls (Smolder comes to mind). Like, if I line my upper lash and water lines with black MAC Smolder, Smolder will travel into my crease and smudge along my lower lash lines — something the black OCC liner also does, but to a lesser degree.

That’s Tarred on my upper lash and water lines, Sybil on the outer part of my lash lower lash and water lines and Pool Boy on the inner part; on my lips is OCC’s new Lip Tar in Mannequin

Because they are quite creamy, they do fade a little over time… I find myself touching up about halfway through the day with the eye-safe pencils on my eyes, and once every 3-4 hours for the lip-safe pencils. Still, that’s not bad.

Bottom line, I think these are great, and totally worthy of an everyday makeup bag. I’d love to see OCC release more of the eye pencil colors, like in some jewel tones, or perhaps a gold, bronze and pewter. :)

    I loved that you quoted the Atacama Desert (I’m from Chile, haha)!

    Happy weekend, Karen :D

    I be lovin’ me some Black Dahlia! I’m honestly more surprised they don’t last longer coming from OCC. Is it bad that every time I say or write or see “OCC” I start singing OPP by Naughty By Nature in my head? I’m such an 90′s girl :(

    I think I will pick up some for my lips, I have never had to touch up an eyeliner throughout the day (did I read that right?). I’ll pass on them as eyeliners if that’s the case.

    I have already set a reminder in my phone for the release date. I’m sure they will sell out quick (a la Mac) LOL

    Nice balance with the lips and eyes! Now you just need to try the purple lip with a bright, feathered eye (like in Tabs’ Sunday photoshoot). :) Speaking of feathered, I’m not sure I understand Anti-Feathered. Would you just use clear to keep your colored liner from migrating? I think that’s why NARS gives us Pro Prime. :)

    Very nice :) My favorite social network is pinterest its like a digital magazine with limitless suggestions and ideas.
