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.
The new shades
- Magnolia – Warm blush pink
- Lily – True lavender
- Wasabi – Opaque bright chartreuse
- Artifact – Bronze with metallic copper pearl
- Rime – Pale turquoise with gold shimmer
- Indrid – Opalescent grey with pink duochrome
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,
