Bikini Girl Approved: Obsessive Compulsive Unknown Pleasures

Posted by Bikini Owner

OCC Lip Tar in LAMENT

Beauty Tested, Bikini Girl Approved is a weekly review by the girls at Bikini.com. Between the entire team, we have tried thousands of beauty products over the years. Now we are sharing our insider knowledge with you! 

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a gutsy thing to call a makeup line, but this Bikini girl secret weapon fully lives up to its name. OCC's makeup collection is vegan and cruelty-free, but the brand's boundary-pushing products are far more eccentric than such a gentle philosophy might suggest.

We're already head over heels for OCC's highly pigmented, long-lasting Lip Tars. The trademark formula applies like a gloss, but stains like a stick, and has been electrifying the lips of both runway models and Bikini girls since the brand first made its splash in 2004.  

But this fall, we are obsessively, compulsively transfixed by this new line of seasonal Lip Tar colors. Wilder than ever, the collection is called "Unknown Pleasures," and although that title does sound a little 50 Shades of Grey, the products themselves are far from it.

Unknown Pleasures was designed to offer "a range of shades and textures that explores the boundaries between light and shadow." Available in hues both delicate and stormy, from "lament" (neutral rose beige) to "manhunter" (metallic red orange) and "vain" (deep dark indigo), the line begs you to flaunt all different sides of yourself this fall. Could there be a better season for a little risk taking? 

Premiere your bold lip on your next night out or reserve it for Halloween. Either way, the season's changing, Bikini girls. Take the plunge.
