OCC Loose Colour Pigments

We have blogged about OCC Lip Tar before and most people are familiar with their awesomeness however we wanted to take a look further at their range.
 We have been loving their loose pigments recently and have been using them in recent tutorials.
 The loose colour pigments are a multi purpose loose powder which can be used on the eyes, skin lips and body.

 These powders are cruelty free, 100% vegan and do not contain fillers, binders, parabens or sulfates.
 The powder is micronized which means it is ground down to a super fine powder. Along with the colour pigments they do contain mica which unfortunately some people are allergic to.
 The mica is mixed with titanium dioxide and iron oxide which helps to give  it a light reflecting sheen.

OCC have 40 colours in their loose colour line up ranging from dark sultry shades through to summer brights.
 Each colour comes in a 2.5g shaker style pot.
 For use on the eye the best way to apply is with a flat firm brush. Pack the colour on with a patting motion and then using a blending brush you can buff the colour in.
 Because these are loose they do drop slightly so a flatter, firm brush is better.
 We would say use shadow shields or do your skin after you have finished your eyes to save time cleaning up.

With so many colours to choose from we picked some gorgeous bright colours to take you into spring/summer.

Burning

Chlorophyll

Pollen Count

Saturate

Glisten

Mimosa
Jubilee

Wasabi
Cava Blue

As well as using these as an eye shadow you can mix them with a gel mixing medium to then use as an eye liner or simply mix them with water to do this also.
You can also use them on the lips by mixing them with the clear lip tar and the lighter flesh colours you could mix with your body lotion to give a shimmer to the body.

These powders are great for vibrancy and longevity. The only negative thing we would say is that there are only three tiny holes to shake the product out of and it doesn't allow much powder out. You have to keep tapping the bottom and re-shaking.

These are £7.00 each and available in the UK from http://www.cocktailcosmetics.co.uk or http://occmakeup.com/
