Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics reveals full ‘Fragmented Alice’ Colour Collection, a collaboration with renowned Symbolist painter Gail Potocki. San Diego Comic Con attendees were able to get a sneak peek of the limited edition collection via ‘Fragmented’, which not only to commemorated OCC’s debut at Comic Con but was also the debut of a brand new Lip Tar texture that blends the glossy transparency of Stained Gloss with the high impact sparkle of Metallic.
‘Fragmented’ will now be available to the public as a part of the ‘Fragmented Alice’ collection, to be released alongside three new Loose Colour Concentrates and two new Nail Lacquers. All products in this collection were inspired by Gail Potocki’s latest series of paintings, “Fragmented Alice” — her uniquely macabre take on Alice in Wonderland.
Gail Potocki gives us the inside scoop on this collaboration, “I’m thrilled with how Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics translated my work into the collection. The colors are a great balance between psychedelic and haunting. This collection is a gorgeous extension of my paintings and a unique way for others to physically inhabit the universe of ‘Fragmented Alice’.”
“OCC has never seen boundaries between art and makeup, and this same transcendence of perceived artistic boundaries is present in the ‘Fragmented Alice’ paintings,” says David Klasfeld, Founder and Creative Director of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, “we couldn’t be more honored to partner with an artist as visionary as Gail Potocki.”
The Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics products in “Fragmented Alice” were named by Gail Potocki herself and consist of:
- LIP TAR: METALLIC in Fragmented, a metallic acid green glaze that pairs an unprecedented amount of metallic pigment with a slick, translucent glossiness that leaves a spectacularly foil-like finish on the lips that’s unquestionably attention-getting.
- Nail Lacquers in Severed, a bright crimson crème and Gryphon, a cement grey crème. Both are 5-free, densely pigmented, quick-drying and super long lasting.
- Loose Colour Concentrates in Inflicted, a patinaed red/lavender; Curved Sky, an icy white to iridescent blue; and NEVAR, a dirty golden olive. These micronized colour pigments are fused with light- reflecting mica and can be used to apply shimmer on the eyes, lips, cheeks and anywhere else on the face or body for a sleek, eye-catching look.
Available: Fragmented Alice will be available August 17, 2013 online at occmakeup.com and centuryguild.net, as well as in-store at Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics flagship boutique in New York City and Century Guild’s Los Angeles showroom in Culver City.
