I may have to adjust my meds.
Naturally, we at Meets Obsession are—duh—obsessed.
Nestled between East Houston and Stanton Street, the lower east side shop—with its exposed brick walls and sleek wood floors—is hip and trendy, yet totally unpretentious. Playing with their highly pigmented products is encouraged—and insanely fun (you can custom-make your own colors at the Mixing Bar.) The super nice staff is ready to assist with makeovers, product advice, opinions—and again, they do it all without one bit of pretense.
The minute you walk into the boutique, it’s clear that OCC is all about color. Their Lip Tars, Loose Color Concentrates, and Nail Lacquers line the walls in shades that range from stunning bright blue to eye popping purple.
And the Lip Tars—I’ve long been in love with them.
They go on like a gloss but set like a stain, and a little goes a long way. Seriously, these tubes are terrific. Narcissus is my new favorite shade, but I’ll always adore Demure, which once lasted me well over a year. Now that’s money well spent.
