Hello Beauties,
I am so excited to finally get my hands on these wonderful pencils from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC)!  They have been on my wish list since they came out last February.  Just after Christmas, they were on sale for less than half the price on the Sephora website. The set originally cost $45, but Sephora had the set on sale for $22. That comes out to approximately $3.66 per pencil instead of the $16 per pencil these normally cost!!! Unfortunately, this set was limited edition for Christmas and is currently sold out.

OCC Cosmetic Colour Pencils
L-R: Pool Boy, Hoochie, NSFW, Black Dahlia, Tarred, Feathered

This set contains: Pool Boy (blue), Hoochie (magenta), NSFW (red), Black Dahlia (darkened red), Tarred (black) and Feathered (white). The OCC pencils are very creamy which make applying them very easy. I haven’t tried them in the eye area yet, but I’m sure that application will be just as smooth as they were on my lips. These vibrant, opaque, long-lasting pencils can be used on either your lips or your eyes. However, there is a warning about using the red based pencils (Hoochie, NSFW, and Black Dahlia) in the eye area. I am a bit of a rebel and will probably use Black Dahlia in the eye area despite the warning. I have other products that had the same warning, but I did not have any type of reaction, so I will proceed until something happens.

I did play around with the pencils on my lips for Day 5 of #100daysoflippies. Using Black Dahlia and Tarred, I created a very vampy lip. I absolutely love how easy these blend together and the matte finish. They were not drying and were very comfortable on my lips.

The only thing that could make these pencils better is if they did not require sharpening.

I look forward to using these pencils in future posts!

Crafter’s Corner

Crafter’s Corner is a new category for 2015.  Crafter’s Corner will feature products that I am crocheting or arm knitting.  I learned how to crochet and knit when I was in elementary school and it is something that I now do to relax.  Mainly, I crochet but I have recently fallen in love with arm knitting since it is so quick and easy.  Through some encouragement from my friends (you know who you are), I have decided that 2015 is the perfect year to open an etsy shop. I thought it would be interesting to display the progress of some of the items on my blog.  I will keep you updated with the progress of my etsy shop and any items I am currently working on.

100 Days of Lipstick Challenge!

Hello Beauties and Welcome to 2015!

I am starting this year off by getting some much needed use out of my many lip products. Everyday for the next 100 days (that’s a lot of days!), I will post a quick picture of my lips, product packaging, and lip product name.  The challenge will be difficult to keep up with but it will be fun! Who knows if I successfully complete 100 days, maybe I’ll go for a whole year!  If you are feeling up to the challenge, hash tag your pics  #100daysoflippies on Instagram and Twitter!
