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 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.

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, the collection delivers online-exclusive offerings as well: two new Cosmetic Colour Pencil shades!

It’s everything you need to capture the MM look. Specially designed packaging features imagery from The Black Sitting.” -MAC Cosmetics

As a girl who is a huge fan of big lashes and red lipstick, I was really looking forward to the Marilyn Monroe collection that MAC Cosmetics put together. Apparently, me and every other girl who considers herself a fan of makeup! A few days after the release of the collection, everything was sold out in the two stores by me. Luckily, Daneen received some products for me to test out.

First, there was eyeshadow in How To Marry. This is a great, shimmery base shadow – I love to use it when I’m going for big lashes and heavy black eyeliner. I also had a lip liner in Beet, which was a nice creamy shade of reddish pink. I did not have any lipsticks from this collection, so I paired the Beet lip liner with the quintessential matte Russian Red lipstick.

Next, there was an eye kohl in Fascinating (bright white), and  Dazzleglass in Little Rock (sheer white with pearl). For effect, I lined my inner lids with the kohl in Fascinating, added mascara to both top and bottom lashes, and added a thick line of MAC eyeshadow in Marvel. I then used the dazzleglass in Little Rock, for a very 60’s fresh face with full lashes look. This one was hard to capture on film, as the shimmer is subtle (thank goodness, none of us need to go back to the middle school roll on glitter look) but it looks really fun in person.

Overall, this is a great collection. The pieces I got are great additions to my arsenal, and all of the shades are classic and chic. Keep up the good work, MAC!

Get Red-y

mac russian red lipstick Get Red yRed lipstick used to really intimidate me. It was something I saw on the runways of New York City, Milan, and Paris; the red carpet; or on Dita Von Teese. I rarely saw anyone attempt this look in real life, which did not help my anxiety!

A few months ago, I instituted a personal beauty rule, to help overcome my fear. This rule is: on Wednesdays, we wear red lipstick. Yes, I was directly inspired by the movie Mean Girls, and their “On Wednesdays we wear pink” rule, and yes, I am totally okay with admitting that. (more…)
