Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in Pretty Boy and Butch

When you find a great lipstick or lip gloss, you stick with it. For me Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar is the perfect combination of a fully pigmented lipstick and the shine and moisture of a lip gloss. In fact OCC Lip Tar makes one of my favorite bold red lip colors, NSFW!

OCC is known for their bold and highly pigmented makeup and all of their collections reflect that. The Fall/Winter 2011 season OCC released their “Pretty Boy” collection inspired by glam rock stars and designed “to empower all genders to express themselves with color.”


With a lip collection featuring colors like Femme, Banjee and Queen, how can a gay girl resist such options? Personally I love a hot butch; and honestly its nice to see a brand embracing queer culture.

Well today we are featuring two colors from the Fall 2011 collection, Butch and Pretty Boy. Butch is a Periwinkle blue which is great if you’re a club kid from the 90s but since its 2012 I’d suggest mixing it with another lip tar. Pretty Boy is a vibrant ultra-pigmented fuchsia, definitely not for the faint of heart.

And when you combine the two together you get this amazingly wearable berry hue that I am madly in love with. The two colors combined make Butch and Pretty Boy a bit more wearable for your every day makeup.
