The concept behind Obsessive Compulsive vegan cosmetics, as founder David Klasfield puts it, is “The first step is admitting you have a problem.” For those who are addicted to makeup, that concept is well understood! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) aims to put only the finest ingredients into their vegan makeup, and proudly proclaims their commitment to vegan products on their website.
Citing that other cosmetic companies only claim their products are cruelty free because animal testing has become expensive and unpopular, OCC makes it clear that they are vegan and cruelty-free because it is something in which they firmly believe. OCC commits to never using ingredients derived from animals (such as carmine and lanolin) and points out that it is not just an animal rights issue, but that animal ingredients are often the culprits of allergic skin reactions.
OCC vegan cosmetics features a full line of eyes, lips, face, and nail products. The eye pigments are rich bursts of colors and are available in an array of shades ranging from steel grey, vibrant greens, warm corals and deep blues. While they do offer crimson red colors, the company is quick to clarify that their products do not contain carmine.
One of OCC’s signature pieces is their lauded “Lip Tar.” A vegan lip color product, Lip Tar was chosen as one of Allure Magazine’s “Editor’s Favorite.” Lip Tar is a mix of lipstick and lip gloss, with the easy application of lip gloss and the opaque coverage of lipstick. This is a hyper-pigmented formula that only requires a tiny dab and a lip brush to bring full coverage to the entire mouth.
OCC also has an entire line of vegan professional makeup brushes, using synthetic blends of nylon and taklon. Their line of 11 vegan makeup brushes include:
Large Powder Brush
Tapered Blending Brush
Angled Blending Brush
Short Shader Brush
Large Shader Brush
Small Shader Brush
