OCC Covet, Dangerous, Pagan Nail Lacquers

OCC Covet Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden buff neutral.” It’s a medium-dark, muted peachy-beige with a cream finish. It was opaque after two coats and applied well without streaking or bubbling. It dried down to a high gloss finish. The consistency was slightly thick but not difficult to use. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping with the brand’s formula. I don’t have anything that has as much brown in it that’s not actually brown, but these were the closest I could think of: NARS Wind Dancer (LE, $20.00) is brighter, more orange. Chanel June (LE, $27.00) is lighter, more orange. China Glaze Desert Sun (LE, $7.50) is more orange, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Vain Lip Tar

OCC Vain Lip Tar ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep, dark indigo.” It’s a rich, medium-dark blue with a soft shine. It’s cool-toned, but it seems to be a subtle, cool undertone. The color will stain the lips for a good while, just as a heads up. I couldn’t think of any dupes of this shade from the blue lipsticks I’ve reviewed in the past.

OCC Technopagan, Poison, Distortion Nail Lacquers

OCC Technopagan Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “blackened purple with blue pearl.” It’s a brightened, violet purple with cool, blue undertones and blue micro-shimmer for a more metallic finish–it seems finer than a typical metallic finish but more shimmery than mere pearl. It had some visible brush strokes, unfortunately, though it was very pigmented. The consistency was slightly thick. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear (but no chipping) with OCC’s formula. Anna Sui Minnie Mouse Midnight Purple (200) (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Zoya Neve (P, $9.00) is darker. Guerlain Riviera (LE, $23.00) is similar. SpaRitual Blue Moon (LE, $10.00) is less shimmery, darker, bluer. China Glaze Want My Bawdy (LE, $7.50) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

OCC Technopagan Lip Tar (Metallic)

OCC Technopagan Lip Tar (Metallic) ($18.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “blackened purple with blue pearl [with a Metallic finish].” It’s a bold, brightened bluish-purple with a metallic shimmer-sheen finish. It had strong, cool undertones. Kat Von D Poe (P, $21.00) is darker, much more muted in comparison. Illamasqua Disciple (P, $24.00) isn’t anything like it–much bluer.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasures Collection for Fall 2014
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Unknown Pleasures Collection for Fall 2014

From the innovators behind the cult-favorite liquid lipstick Lip Tar, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics unleashes a range of shades and textures that explores the boundaries between light and shadow. ‘Unknown Pleasures’ is OCC’s Fall/Winter Colour Collection that not only brings together six all-new Lip Tar shades to Sephora, but will be the first to introduce six limited-edition Nail Lacquer shades to participating stores!

The ‘Unknown Pleasures’ collection captures seasonal trend as created by OCC on the runways of New York Fashion Week, with shades that made their original debut at the Fall/Winter 2014 Collections. ‘Unknown Pleasures’ offers a range of colours that promise to tease and tempt the senses, with chic neutrals like ‘Lament’ and ‘Covet’, to ultra-modern vamp shades like the Matte and Metallic duo of deep purples, ‘Pagan’ and ‘Technopagan’. In addition to the six all-new Lip Tar Mattes and Metallics and coordinating Nail Lacquer shades, ‘Unknown Pleasures’ delivers online-exclusive offerings as well: two new Cosmetic Colour Pencil shades!

Actor and musician Deven Green returns to OCC, taking on her darkest roles yet as the two faces of ‘Unknown Pleasures’. The collection will be available online at Sephora.com and OCCMakeup.com beginning 8/5, and available for purchase at participating Sephora stores and at OCC’s flagship boutique on 9/19.
