Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics

Lower East Side
Creator David Klasfeld founded OCC in the kitchen of his Lower East Side apartment in 2004. The makeup artist has since expanded his 100 percent vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics line from just two shades of lip balm to an extensive assortment of bang-for-your-buck beauty products. The animal-friendly brand has bid Klasfeld’s kitchen adieu and set up shop in a downtown flagship, filled with exposed brick, antique metal and reclaimed wood. Browse more than 30 shades of nail polish ($8) in clear, translucent and opaque varieties, and nearly 40 loose eye-shadow powders ($12). You’ll also find soft, flexible makeup brushes ($18–$28), airbrushing equipment ($75–$299) and bottles of the label’s tinted moisturizers ($25), but we especially fancy OCC’s Lip Tars ($13), which glide on like a gloss but have the matte finish and saturated pigmentation of a lipstick. Get glam for a night on the town by taking advantage of OCC’s makeup-application services ($75–$125).
