Our beauty trend editor, Kate Fannin, loves Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics so much. Let her count the ways.

With Halloween right around the corner fun beauty products are a must, which is why I’m so excited that Nordstrom is now selling OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). Their Lip Tars are perfect for creating any color imaginable. Here are seven reasons to become obsessed…

1. Lip Tar: crazy name, awesome product. Use alone or MIX them to create your own ‘bespoke’ color—check out the Electric Orchid color I created. Tap into your creative side and let us know what you invent!

2. Color names include Captain Howdy, Pool Boy, Electric Sheep, and Leeloo (any reference to The Fifth Element instantly ups the cool factor).

3. The Lip Tar Primer is one of the best I’ve ever used. It melts into lips and has serious staying power to “grip” the Tars.

4. We spotted Lip Tars in use backstage during NYFW SS15. If they’re good enough for the pros, they’re good enough for me!

5. The Colour Pencils can be used as lip liner or eyeliner; I’m all about using the hot-pink color, Anime, as a night-out eyeliner.

6. There’s even a clear, anti-feathering pencil that keeps the Tars from wandering.

7. Who doesn’t love a brand name that validates beauty junkies everywhere? Obsessed? Check. Compulsive? Unashamedly so. Cosmetics? Obvi.

And that’s my take,
Kate

Circus performers, psychics, pop darling Lily Allen, So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley and Kim Kardashian looking positively radiant in the ‘Golden Goddess’ palette? Yes, it’s true: the Charlotte Tilbury VIP Launch Party on October 9 was a decadently gorgeous affair.

Held outside our store at The Grove in LA, Charlotte Tilbury’s Makeup Your Destiny Launch Party and two-day Beauty Festival was a carnival-themed extravaganza, including a Mesmerizing Eye Bar, a K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lip Bar and one-on-one ‘Tilbury Transformations’ with members of the British beauty maven’s varsity squad. 

The powerhouse turnout was no surprise, of course. You might recall that Tilbury crafted Amal Alamuddin’s makeup look—using the ‘Sophisticate’ eye palette and Chic to Cheek Blush in ‘Love Glow’—when Alamuddin married George Clooney. Her client list is star-studded. But devotees of the renowned expert’s holistic approach also appreciated the presence of notable naturopath Dr. Nigma, who demonstrated the incredible age-erasing capabilities of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult-status skincare line.

Our photo album is like a retroactive full-access pass. Enjoy!

M·A·C Senior Artist John Stapleton demonstrates how to create a smoldering smoky eye using products from the Kelly Osbourne for M·A·C collection.

Working as Kelly Osbourne’s makeup artist has been incredible, and it all began with a lipstick. One of the first lipsticks I used on Kelly was M·A·C Pink Nouveau. The lipstick was loud, crazy, and left of center, much like the young singer.

The M·A·C Kelly Osbourne collection is perfect for all her fashion-forward fans. The smoky purples from her Bloody Brilliant Quad will be stunning on any woman. Read on to learn how to achieve the perfect smoky eye.
