I purchased by first Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour several weeks ago. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “How did you get out of purchasing only one?”
I avoid mineral companies like the plague because I have too much of a OCD personality that demands I collect every single shade they offer. Believe me it was difficult casually browsing OCC Makeup Pigments and coming away from the deal with a purchase of a single pot. I swear after I hit submit on my purchase I broke into a cold sweat and almost turned around the add one of every color into my cart.
Lucky enough I had a little willpower and quickly shut down my browser and powered off my computer. It was a close call…
Take a look!
This purchase was completely spontaneous as I told myself I’d only browser the site but the shade Glisten kept calling to me so I had to get it. This is a beautiful golden shimmering coral which I’m terribly tempted to use as a blush but so far only used on my eyes.
The Loose Colour pots can be used on cheeks, face, lips (mix with clear gloss), or anywhere else your creative mind takes them. I used mine on my eyes below. They have a smooth, easy to apply formula which surprisingly lack any major fall out problems. Typically loose pigments are a picky product to apply but I was delighted how easily Glisten applied on my eyes without falling around my cheeks or under my eyes during application.
For a brand that prides themselves on bold pigmentation I was surprised how sheer Glisten was. It isn’t the popping shade of coral I expected but more of a soft, golden coral sans any hardcore shimmer. I liked the effect it had my eyes as it wasn’t heavy or over done but more of a natural finish with a tiny hint of sparkle.
Overall, I do find these pigments expensive at $14 each as there are a variety of Indie brands which you can probably get a similiar shade from for far less. However, the texture, easy of use, and the color was outstanding.
This is my first experience with OCC and I believe I’ll be back for more if all their Loose Colour Pigments are as nice.
