5 Favorite New Beauty Releases

PIXI BEAUTY Full Coverage Foundation Brush ($15 @ – such a compact head but don’t let the lack of length fool you. It still does a great job at getting your liquid products into those corners and contours.

2. OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Crème Colour Concentrate in Discipline ($23 @ and – described as a bruised-bronze, this multi-tasking creamy color can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks (note that not all 17 shades can be used in the eye area).

3. L’OREAL Smokissime Infallible Powder Eyeliner Pen in Purple Smoke ($9.99 @ – if the packaging says ‘Infallible’ on it, I’m in! Seriously though, their Infallible line is flawless. And these fat liners are great for applying a smoking eye in seconds.

4. BENEFIT COSMETICS the POREfessional: License to Blot ($20 @ – this is the latest addition to the POREfessional collection and will be great for the upcoming season. It’s an instant blotting stick with tiny invisible spheres that will mattifying any oil your face puts forth. 

5. BEAUTY 360 Shape-Defining Nail File ($4.99 @ and CVS stores nationwide) – this is my new favorite file! I’ve noticed that sometimes a file has to be “broken in” so it’s not too harsh on the nails. This one arrived perfect and ready to use.

Review+Swatches - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Fragmented Alice Collection

OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS (or OCC) just came out with a collection inspired by Gail Potocki’s Fragmented Alice paintings. In her pieces, Potocki twists the Alice in Wonderland characters into haunting interpretations you never saw in your books growing up or even imagined in your mind. If you did, they probably would have scared you!

If you attended the San Diego Comic Con, you probably saw some of her paintings and OCC debuted the Fragmented Lip Tar there too.

Going by the name Fragmented Alice, the collection is:

Lip Tar: Metallic + Stained Goss ($18) in Fragments (acid-green, gold-laced metallic)

Loose Colour Concentrates ($14) in Curved Sky (ice white/iridescent blue-violet, Infliction (patinaed pink opal) and Nevar (dirty golden olive).

OCC Makeup Gets Their Spring/Summer On

Do you like a little fun with your makeup along the lines of Hard Candy and Urban Decay? Have you tried Obsessive Compulsive Makeup aka OCCMAKEUP yet? I’ve featured the line on the site a few times and the more I play with the line, the more I become a fan. If you haven’t , their Lo-Fi Spring/Summer 2011 Collection is a great one to start with. This is their polarizing reaction to the HD makeup trend happening right now  and the colors reflect the season’s makeup trends of color, color, and more color in their Lip Tars, Loose Colours and Nail Lacquers. What I like about this line is not only the great quality but you can tell they don’t have any filler color or products in the line. In other words, they put out what they mean!

OCC-Makeup-Lip-Tar-and-Loose-Colour Product picks: Lip Tar in Beta (vivid neon orange. Such a great one to mix with other shades), Interlace (subtle peach neutral). Loose Colour in Bitmap (rich, leafy green w/vibrant gold shimmer), Distortion (dark, smoky navy w/green and gold reflections) and Noise (muted reddish plum w/pink/blue duochrome).

They also have new Nail Lacquers in the collection but I didn’t try any of them. So tell me, have you tried any of the line and what did you think? All @
