Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Sebastian

*Purchased with my own money

When this color came out a few months ago I fell in love. I saw the swatches in a YouTube video and knew immediately that I had to have it. My plan had been to get it while I was in Chicago on one of my many shopping trips.  Guess what didn't happen while I was in Chicago? Shopping, that's what.  I went to Whole Foods twice and fell in love with their pizza, but I didn't get a chance to go to Sephora. So, when I got back from Chicago I placed a massive Sephora order, and finally got my hands on Sebastian.

 I've wanted to try an OCC lip tar for ages, but they all seem too intense. I'm a natural lip kind of girl, and then I found their nail polishes.  It was an aha moment for sure. Sebastian is an interesting kind of tannish nude with a hint of silver shimmer.  It actually has a matching lip tar, and while I love natural lip colors, Sebastian is a bit grey for my liking. I can just see it now, showing up at work with grey lips.  My boss would laugh so hard.

If you can see my pinkie, it had a smudge. I didn't even know it was there until I edited the photos for this post. So please excuse the smudge. I did three coats, and even at that I could see a touch of nail line.  The polish was a bit thin, but very workable.

Since I took a break from blogging I was afraid that they had discontinued this color while I was away.  I'm happy to report you can get every color from the Moderncraft collection.  I really wish I were bold enough to pull off some of those lip tars. Black Metal Dahlia has bad me drooling since I saw it as well.

You can find OCC at Sephora and on the OCC website. Let me know what you think about the brand.  I'm loving some of their spring nail colors, but can't wrap my head around the bright blue lips.

On another note, I've been thinking about re launching my YouTube channel.  For those of you who don't know, I used to make videos about 3 years ago.  A lot has changed since then, but my love for makeup and DIY has only gotten more intense. I'm tempted to start with my nail polish favorites since I have a bit of experience in that area. Let me know what you think. Should I make videos again, or just stick to blogging?
