One of our favorite makeup brands, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (OCC) has launched their Spring 2014 line of liptars. The collection “Plastic Passion” features Deven Green and consists of 6 liptars. The collection is available on and and will be available in Sephora on February 28, 2014. It also features nail lacquers and lip pencils.

For Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Spring 2014 is not the season to play it safe! Gone are the demure pastels and flirty palette of seasons past, replaced instead by hyper- saturated hues and technicolor textures. OCC’s PLASTIC PASSION collection delivers its most vibrant lineup of Lip Tar shades to date, in both our Matte and Metallic textures. Lips are lacquered in shades that are bold beyond belief. For Spring, excess is everything! Featuring the legendary DEVEN GREEN as the faces of PLASTIC PASSION!
