#OBSESSED with Cosplay: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics S/S 2015

Surely by now you’ve heard of the new by Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Cosplay, right? It’s now officially available! As expected, OCC does not disappoint in the pigment department. Super-saturated as always, long lasting and head turning colors that are to die for.

Make up artists, other bloggers and myself were lucky enough to be invited to the OCC Flagship store in Manhattan, where we were the first to see the new S/S 2015 Collection. When I heard that the new range was called Cosplay, my first thought was, “Oh! So it’s was inspired by cosplay or cosplayers, literally.” Cosplay by definition, is the art or practice of wearing costumes to portray characters from fiction, especially from manga, animation, and science fiction.

After speaking with founder, David Klasfeld first hand, the idea of the range is actually a more abstract take on the act of cosplaying and more inspirational. When I think of cosplay, I think of dressing up like Wonder Woman. The line is inspired by and gives wearers a mature hero, like Jessica Lang. It’s a playful take on a serious line, like OCC. The colors give you the opportunity to change into a new version of you, without actually dressing up! Though personally, I’d love to dress up like Constance Langdon from American Horror Story season one.

Here I am, speaking with OCC founder, David Klasfeld.

Normally, I’m a girl that loves pinks and nudes. Maybe I’ll wear a deep wine colored lip if I’m feeling dark. Wanting to be daring, I mixed Cosplay, the teal-toned matte green, with Femme, a true baby matte pink, and it gave me this gorgeous sea foam green!

I also tried Technopagan and Black Dahlia, both Metallics.

Hyper saturated, the Lip Tars and matching Nail lacquers combine for a monochromatic look, as shown below.

In case you didn’t already know, all Lip Tar finishes contain organic hemp oil and soy-derived vitamin E, for a finish that feels as good as it looks. They also contain peppermint oil, which feels oh-so refreshing!

You can purchase OCC products on their site. Guess it’s time to shop!

Best Xo,

Andrea
