OCC Loose Colour

When I went to IMATS NY (a few months back), I bought a few products from OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics). 2 of those products were loose colours or as some people know them, loose pigments. I purchased Platonic and Obscure.

Platonic is a pale cream shimmery pink, and Obscure is white with teal flecks. Obscure doesn't seem like much in the jar, but when it is swatched it is really something special.Personally, I like using the pigments wet rather then dry. The good thing about Obscure is that it looks amazing on dark colors, such as black liners or black shdows. It lightens them up and gives them a gorgeous green tint... and I mean gorgeous. I mainly use Platonic with my pink-y, purple, and sometimes neutral looks. There are so many things that you can do with these colours. Next time I go to NYC or next time I go to an IMATS show I will be picking up more of these loose colours.
