Say a big hello to this pretty chick - our bellabox Singapore Editor Becks! Today, she reviews the awesome new to bb OCC colour product - now available in the Singapore and Australian online shop! Read on for the full scoop, as well as how you can score yourself a FREE OCC Lip Tar, for a limited time only - so be quick!
"I have a problem. I have a serious case of OCC... Not OCD - you see, I am obsessed with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics colours! Ridiculously pigmented with the boldest and craziest range of colours. Soft, feminine nude OR army green lips? Yup, OCC’s got them all.
And after the success of their bestselling product range, the OCC lip tars, the brand has now launched another soon-to-be cult (and my) favourite – the OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencils. Available in 12 shades, they arrived at the bella office one day and only narrowly missed landing on my desk (darn stocktaking!). I picked out 5 shades and gave them a test drive last weekend. And. Those. Colours. Pardon my obsession.
If you find some of the names familiar, it’s because OCC has converted some of these shades from the much sought after Lip Tars into the Cosmetic Colour Pencils range. Now you can not only use them on your lips – some of them double up as eyeliners too!
The striking aquatic blue liner smoothly glided along my upper lash line (easy application!) and I highlighted my lower lashes by applying the true white liner to my waterline to make my eyes appear bigger. And I'm happy to report that everyone agreed that my eyes encapsulated a beautiful, happy weekend vibe!
Monday called for a pop of colour other than the blues. I went for a wild red tone on the lips to chase away the otherwise depressing first-day-of-the-working-week vibe today. Not forgetting Anti-Feathered around the lip line for a polished, no-bleed pout!
Buildable for a naughty or nice look, the OCC Colour Pencil in NSFW is derived from one of the brand’s best-selling Lip Tar. Now designed in a colour pencil for fuss-free application, this vibrant and long-lasting colour was a sure bet to turn the often-dreadful start of the week around!
And there you have it. These 100% vegan and cruelty-free Cosmetic Colour Pencils are simply easy to use and perfectly pigmented for whenever you need a boost of mood and hue.
And, as a special bellabox offer, you can buy 2 of the OCC Cosmetics Colour Pencils and get 1 OCC Lip Tar free in the gorgeous AW14 appropriate shade of Vintage, shown below! If I were you I’d jump straight at the chance and invest in some of these cult-favourites. If I were you, that is... Because I’ve gotten them all already!" - Becks
