New OCC Loose Colors for Spring/Summer 2011
$12.00 USD | 2.5g Micronized colour pigments fused with shimmering mica for use on the eyes, and anywhere else on the face and body. These lightweight, ultra-refined, densely pigmented powders apply shimmer smoothly and beautifully, wherever it’s needed. Also great mixed with our Primer and Mixing Mediums to create custom colours.
First off, I love love love how pigmented these are. These are swatched over a bit of TFSI, and they really show up beautifully. I can’t wait to play with them wet, especially Flawed. That one reminds me a bit of MAC’s Rose Gold Pigment, which is basically like liquid gold, but smells like crushed pennies (I have issues with metal smells, ie i wont touch coins if i can help it, and if i do i need to wash my hands immediately, so using a makeup product that smells like it kinda doesn’t work!) Flawed doesn’t smell like that, thank goodness! I actually did spill a bit on my table, and cleaned it up with a baby wipe and it definitely had that liquid gold look to it, so that one will be really fun.
Hum is another one I really like, that would be what I would use as an everyday color. I love love love peachy-oranges like that, they are so fun on blue eyes and it isn’t TOO bright, so I’ll definitely be sporting that often! I think it’d be pretty with Noise in the crease :)
And just for good measure, I gotta say I LOVE that the green is named Bitmap. I noticed with the new Lip Tars that there was sort of an old-school technology theme going on (names like lo-fi, beta, analogue) I like it!
