OCC Unknown Pleasures Cosmetic Colour Pencils for Fall/Winter 2014 - Swatches & Review

Hi boobalahs! Yesterday, I brought you swatches and a review of the OCC Unknown Pleasures Lip Tars for their Fall/Winter 2014 which are IN-SANE and make me wish that I could rock a dark metallic purple lip all day, errday. Today I'm bringing you swatches and a review of the two online-exclusive Cosmetic Color Pencil shades - Sebastian and Lydia! The name "Cosmetic Color Pencils "basically mean that they can be used for almost anywhere - lips, eyes, brows, etc.

"The 'Unknown Pleasures' collection captures seasonal trend as created by OCC on the runways of NYFW, with shades that made their original debut at the Fall/Winter 2014 Collections. 'Unknown Pleasures' offers a range of colors that promise to tease and tempt the senses with chic neutrals like 'Lament' and 'Covet', to ultra-modern vamp shades like the Matte and Metallic duo of deep purples 'Pagan' and 'Technopagan'. In addition to the six all-new Lip Tar Mattes and Metallics and coordinating Nail Lacquer shades, 'Unknown Pleasures' delivers online-exclusive offerings as well as two new Cosmetic Color Pencil shades!"

Sebastian is a plum-toned taupe.
Kylie Jenner lips, anyone? That's the first thing I thought of. I never in a million years thought I'd actually like this but I found myself totally wanting to rock this out. Definitely different and would look amazing with MAC Brave or something like that over it. I also think that this would be perfect for an eyebrow pencil. Smooth and opaque, for sure.

Lydia is a darkroom plum.
First off, let me note that there is a warning that Lydia is not meant to be used around the eye area. As cool as a plum eyeliner would've been, this is much better as a lip liner/shade anyway. It appears patchy in the picture but I promise you it filled in smoothly and opaquely. Definitely a fun, fall color!
