Take that Maxim: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics makes unquestionably hot, cruelty-free make-up

Maxim recently ran an article titled "How to Cure a Feminist: Turn an unshaven, militant, protesting vegan into an actual girl!" Pardon me Maxim, but since when does eating vegetables mean that we aren't "actual girls?" Graciously excusing their naiveté, I would like to inform them that they left one very important cure for their so-called unshaven vegan women off their list: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. This cruelty-free, all vegan make-up line is unquestionably HOT.

I was lucky enough to attend the launch party for their spring line at their NYC storefront this past Friday. Surrounded by model-esque girls that any Maxim man would drool over, I noshed on vegan cupcakes and champagne, played with bold, fun colors of eye shadow, lipstick and nailpolish, and even treated my "ungirly" vegan self to some makeup...yup we vegan girls actually put make-up on sometimes. The difference is, there is no torture or killing of innocent beings behind our make-up. If you call that unfeminine...well then I'll take that label any day.

If you don't live in NYC, you can still enjoy this fabulous line of cosmetics by purchasing at occmakeup.com.
