OCC moderncraft will unveil on August 27 with six new Lip Tar™ shades and be the first Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics collection to launch with all three finishes: Original Matte, Metallic and Stained Gloss™.  As with all Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar™ they carry unprecedented amounts of pigment and have the longevity of a lipstick.  LIP TAR™: MATTE and LIP TAR™: METALLIC apply with the ease of a lip gloss and dry to a lipstick finish, while STAINED GLOSS™ possesses a long-lasting glossy finish, creating a ‘cellophane’ glaze for lips.  Also launching with the OCC moderncraft range are the Fall 2013 Nail Lacquers in six new shades. In addition to being 5-free, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Lacquers are densely pigmented, quick-drying and super long lasting.

 David Klasfeld, CEO/Creative Director, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics states OCC moderncraft is first and foremost inspired by the cabarets of 1920s Weimar Berlin, and the art that period begat.  Calpernia Addams personifies everything enduring and endearing about its spirit, which lives on in the modern cabaret performer. Beyond that, Calpernia is a hero, an activist, and absolutely one of the most beautiful women in the world.”

Calpernia Addams’ cult-like following as a performer who embodies the and grace of Golden Age Hollywood, as well as her love of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, made her the perfect choice to be the face for this new campaign.  Calpernia has been entertaining – on both stage and screen – for over 20 years, has performed alongside Jane Fonda, starred in her own MTV/LOGO television series, written a memoir, composed and arranged countless songs, and hosts a weekly Pop, Jazz and Standards cabaret show in Hollywood that is consistently sold-out.  As one of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics biggest fans, Calpernia states, “Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics products offer endless possibilities for reinvention in brilliant vegan colors. I rely on their long wearing formulas, and I won’t appear in front of an audience or a camera without my OCC Makeup.”

Founded in New York City in 2004, OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS started out as a trade secret: a pro-only range of products available only at the most exclusive industry-only Professional Makeup emporiums. In a time when many cosmetic companies make the claim that their products are “Cruelty Free” simply because Animal Testing has become unfashionable and less cost-effective, OCC felt it was necessary to raise the bar on this issue. We pledge never to use animal-derived ingredients (including Lanolin, Beeswax, Carmine and more) in our products and accessories. Founder David Klasfeld is still directly involved in the formulation of all new products and as a makeup artist himself is sure to always bring the latest trends in color to the market.
