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.
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!
