OCC Debuts at Comic-Con with Fragmented Lip Tar


Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics makes their long-awaited debut at San Diego Comic-Con (July 18-21, 2013) in a collaboration with artist Gail Potocki.

To commemorate their arrival into Comic-Con, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has worked with renowned Symbolist painter Gail Potocki to launch a limited edition metallic Lip Tar that is inspired by her latest series of paintings, “Fragmented Alice” — a uniquely macabre take on Alice in Wonderland. The exclusive Lip Tar in ‘Fragmented’ is a metallic acid green shade that boasts an unprecedented amount of metallic pigment, leaving a spectacularly foil-like finish on the lips that’s unquestionably attention-getting. San Diego Comic-Con is the perfect platform to launch this collaboration as it has become the largest pop-culture event in the world and features not only comics but all aspects of popular arts. Attendees of San Diego Comic-Con can be the first to pick up ‘Fragmented’ Lip Tar: Metallic at the Century Guild booth (#2845) beginning on Preview Night, July 17th.

But that’s not all! ‘Fragmented’ Lip Tar: Metallic is a preview of what’s to come next from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Stay tuned for more announcements coming soon on the full “Fragmented Alice” limited-edition collection, set to launch August 2013.

5 Sparkling Blue Hues

I tried to pull a good variety in blues, from cobalt, purplish blues to sky blues to your bold, bright blues–and not just eyeshadows! I had to pick an eyeliner, because it’s a great way to add a bold pop of color without going full-on blue. If you want to see my picks together, the comparisons.

  1. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans — a pop of cobalt blue for the lash line
  2. OCC Pond — Tardis blue for your nails
  3. Le Metier de Beaute Lapis — a beautiful, medium-dark blue with shimmer
  4. Color Club Over the Moon — a shimmering, holographic blue
  5. Inglot #426 — a brightened, medium blue

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ripley Nail Lacquer

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Ripley Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. 0z.) is described as a “blackened, antique olive-gold [with a metallic finish].” At a glance, it’s exactly what comes to my mind when I think of “black gold.” More descriptively, it’s a blackened olive base with golden olive green shimmer with a metallic finish. China Glaze Agro is slightly greener, not as metallic (smaller shimmer). Cult Nails in a Trance is less blackened, more shimmered than metallic. NARS Mash is much greener.
