Or OCC. They're the new kids at Sephora, who are making waves and an old favorite of many bloggers. I fell hard for their signature Lip Tars, a super pigmented liquid lipstick that dries to a semi-matte finish. One thing I always remind people: you only need the tiniest drop.
But I'm not reviewing Lip Tars today, though I have two on my list that I have fallen madly in love with.
No, today, I'm reviewing OCC's Loose Colour Concentrates. Loose Colour Concentrates are exactly what they sound like: loose color pigments with a range of uses. They're very finely milled, are well-filled and have a very exciting range of colors to choose from! I chose Datura because I really have never seen anything like it.
|From the side. Quite full, right?|
|See the faint pinky glitter?|
|With flash, this color becomes a bit washed out but this looks closer to the real color in the pot.|
I have ended up with duochrome shadow on top of my mascara before accidentally but it was actually quite pretty! I had it on my lid and over Maybelline's Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (another love that I need to review, even if it's just basic black). This is going to be so fun to play with ~

There are a variety of places to get OCC from, check here to see. You can, of course, buy OCC online from Sephora. OCC has a great range; products for lips, nails, eye, face. Airbrush products, tools like brushes and multipurpose products!
PS: I used this with an eye look that didn't do it justice. I had used Milk as a base for the lavender shade from the Wet n Wild Going in the Wild palette and used Datura for the inner corner and browbone. I think because I used one brush for both the lavender eyeshadow and Datura, that Datura also picked up some of the lavender in the inner corner! Oops. Guess it's time to wash my brushes!
PPS: I updated lip swatches ~ Yay!
