About Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencils
This versatile range of cosmetic pencils perfectly complement Lip Tar. From everyday neutrals to bold hues, each pencil can stand alone as highly pigmented liners for the eyes and beyond. This is a long-wearing multipurpose pencil for the eyes, lips, and body.  OCC first launched with Anti-Feathered Cosmetic Colour Pencil, a truly clear, invisible liner that defines the lips without a trace of color, making it a must-have to pair with any lip product. In addition to lips, Anti-Feathered works as a primer for eyes to enhance the wear and look of eye makeup.

For me, these work wonderfully on the lips but I can’t get them to last on my eyes. I think it’s because of my hooded eye shape. I can’t seem to draw a line thin enough to get them to last. I’ve tried with different eyeshadow primers and using Anti-Feathered as a base and nothing will keep them on my lids for more than 5 minutes. For my lower lash line I can’t get them to last more than a half hour.

For my lips, they work perfectly and that’s where I prefer to use them. The colors are super saturated and long wearing for me.

  • After resisting for a while, I recently bought “Anti-feathered,” and it’s *exactly* what I needed.
    While I have decent skin for a 50-something, I want to be sure that the bright/bold lip colors I favor behave themselves, and lately colored liner pencils had begun to seem a bit heavy.
    Ant-feathered creates an invisible boundary that keeps my lipsticks and glosses in place.
    Since it works with ANY color, it helps minimize clutter, too.
    I wouldn’t mind if it cost less, but I’ll pay more for cruelty-free high quality.
    I don’t plan to ever be without Anti-feathered again.

  • Those colors are so gorgeous. I love using oranges, corals, and pinks on my eyes so when I first heard about these I got super excited. And then I heard that certain shades (always the reds, oranges, pinks, *weep*) weren’t for use in the eye area. I was so bummed. I was so totally planning a fierce Grandma eye look. 😀 Lol. But totally true. I wish so much that shades like those could be made safe for the eye area.

    So sad these didn’t work out for you on the eyes – Pool Boy would have looked epic on you. I have so much love for Pool Boy in it’s other incarnations (polish, Lip Tar). 😀 I do love a great lip pencil though. I feel like there aren’t enough lip pencils out there that are really awesome in the shades I’m looking for so…I’d still get certain shades just for my lips. Grandma tops my list because I have yet to find the perfect coral liner. I always wear brights on my lips but I have no liner for my oranges and corals so it would be great if Grandma worked out. I have to get Suspira – that polish is gorgeous (and I love the movie)! Looks great on you! <3

  • I hadn’t noticed that you have hooded eyes until reading this post and going back looking at pictures. If my understanding of hooded eyes is correct, it doesn’t seem like it should effect the longevity of the eyeliner. I do believe you 100%, please don’t misunderstand, it just looks like the hooded part doesn’t touch the liner. At any rate, if it doesn’t stay or last it just doesn’t. I haven’t tried them yet.

    • If you look at the outer 1/2 of my eyelid, the eye is hooded, so my skin rubs together there. A lot of liners will transfer from my lid into the crease, which as you can imagine is annoying. Most gel liners do not transfer, liquid liners do not, but a lot of pencils do transfer on me.
