This is not news to anyone, but Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is crazy.


To be specific: crazy cool, crazy passionate, and crazy aspirational.

OCC is one of the most notable brands pushing the limits of color and expression all while being 100% vegan and cruelty-free. And you’ve probably heard of or seen the Lip Tars. Now repackaged in a standard lipgloss tube, they’ve been made even more convenient for…whenever you want green lips!

For Spring/Summer 2016, OCC has taken the idea of the ubiquitous bright lip and mixed it with a psychedelic palette. This is the Magnetic Fields Colour Collection ($16 each), and there are 3 new solid colors plus 3 new iridescent metallics that can be mixed or used individually.

With a formula of mostly oils and pure pigment, one dip into one of the tubes is all you need to completely cover your lips with full coverage. These are on the thicker side, and my lips feel comfortably moisturized when I wear them.

They’re moderately long-lasting as well. The thicker formula sticks around, but the glossy texture also means that they will transfer onto cups and teeth if you aren’t careful.

My favorites ended up being all 3 of these metallics, all of which are forgiving on the lips and look really special, and it helps that I can easily get full coverage from them from very little of the product.


The solid opaque colors are trickier to pull off, being SO glossy and SO opaque. Wasabi was the one “womp-womp” shade that did give me the same coverage level as the rest, but it fell into my lip lines, unfortunately.

If you can see yourself rocking these shades, you can pick them up for $16 each for a limited time at Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

Hope you enjoyed reading! I’ll see you guys in the next,

    Hi Anna,

    I’d probably never wear Magnolia (I have a hard time with pastel pinks sometimes), but I’m feeling it on you! I think it looks super cool.

    Great lip shots, by the way. 🙂

    I’m usually more of a matte fan myself, but I really like the look of Artifact.

  6. Wow, Magnolia looks awesome on you! It is a color I don’t like on myself, but the other metallics look gorgeous.

    These are so gorgeous! I have Rime and Wasabi so far, and I love them so much. I’m noping to get the rest of the collection. Artifact and Indrid are beautiful.

  8. Adia says:

    I LOVE the metallics, especially Artifact! I could wear that everyday 🙂

  9. You somehow managed to make them all look good, even Wasabi! I don’t think I’d wear any of the shades though. I’m not cool or brave enough to 😉

    You make them all look great! I’m so happy about the repackage–the old tubes were the #1 reason I generally avoided OCC lip tars. Indrid is beautiful.


  11. Aj says:

    I didn’t think I’d like Artifact as much as I do now seeing it swatched, but I really like it. It looks great on you!

    Indrid for the win!
