Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has a new collection out called “The Garden” and is full of interesting shades that I would say almost qualify as neon-pastels. They’re bright, vivid hues that hint at summer, but the pastel, springy element in some of them pull it back to be appropriate for both seasons. OCC’s loose colors are always highly pigmented and easy to work with, and these are no exception.

When I first received these colors, I was a bit surprised to see three of the six were yellow-oranges, all pretty similar in shade. It makes sense, though, considering that orangey hues are verrrry in right now. There isn’t really a color in this collection that I don’t like and don’t see myself wearing at some point or another. The glitter, Fae, is unlike any that I own, and would look amazing layered over a good range of shades to give a new dimension of color. Datura (pink) is probably one of my favorites, just because of its versatility. Applied dry (shown), its a light, almost ballerina pink with a vivid shimmer. Applied wet, and that shimmer explodes, bringing this shade up more than a few notches!
Overall: I’m a fan. I will probably wear these more than a few times this spring!
