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.

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!

Wet n’ Wild Fall 2014 LE Lipstick Dupes

Did you miss out on the Wet n’ Wild Fall 2014 Limited Edition lipsticks? Before you go to Amazon or Ebay and pay an astronomical amount of money for a $2 lipstick, check your stash!

I managed to get my hands on all four (Sweet Cream 34422, Sunset Siren 34423, Bordeaux Boulevard 34424, and Urban Night 34425) of the limited edition lipsticks.  After getting them home I soon realized that I had very similar colors already in my Wet n’ Wild lipstick collection.

I found Cinnamon Spice 917B, Bare It All 902C, Red Velvet 910D, and Ravin’ Raisin 916D to be very close, and in some cases identical,  to the Fall 2014 shades.  When swatched on my hand you can see differences in a couple of the lipsticks, but when worn there is barely or no difference in the shades at all.  Save yourself some money by purchasing these comparable shades from the permanent line!
