Swatches: OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) products for Spring 2011!

Hi guys!

Hope all is well with everyone! I'm back with a post about OCC's (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) new line for Spring 2011! I actually have a few other products I want to post about, but I HAAAAD to put those on the back burner to show you guys these new goodies!! I really can't contain myself when I get OCC products in the mail. Right when I get their package, I rip it open & immediately start swatching/taking pictures. ;)

This spring line will be debuting at The Makeup Show here in Los Angeles on February 26-27th, 2011 and include 6 new shades of lip tars, 6 loose colour concentrates, and 6 new shades of nail lacquer! The new line includes colors that can be used by those who like a more of a 'work friendly' type of look, as well as those who eat/live/breathe bold intense colors!

Here is a bit of background on the inspiration for this spring line:
"A reaction to the HD makeup craze, OCC encourages makeup artists and enthusiasts alike to bring their palette back to hi-res basics, with a series of resolute shades that bring back focus to the wearer. ...The collection capitalizes on runway trends that feature either sharply defined eyes and neutral lips, or bold, bright lips and barely-there washes of colour on the eyes."

Unfortunately I do not have the nail lacquers to show you, but based on the description, I feel like I'd be a fan of them all!


I apologize for not having any actual skin swatches for the loose colours. I'll try to take some soon (I did take some, but I didn't like how they turned out-- they weren't really true to color).


FIRST IMPRESSION FAVORITES:

LIP TAR: Interlace. Depending on your skin tone, Interlace (or Tone) lip tar would be a good fit for a plain lip while you really play up the eyes. On me, I like how Interlace looks! Another favorite is Beta. This color isn't for the timid! It's a wham-bam in your face kind of color and I LOVE it.

LOOSE COLOUR: I've noticed when it comes to loose shadows/pigments-- I duochromes catch my eye the most. This is no different! I love HUM! It is a gorgeous/intense peach that flashes with pink... ahhh so so pretty! It reminds me a bit of MAC's Motif eyeshadow, but of course-- MUCH better. Unfortunately I don't have that color (Motif) anymore to compare, so I'm just basing it on memory. I also really like Distortion. For some reason I don't wear navy colors too much-- but I think that'll get cut short now that I have this color. I can't wait to come up with looks combining both Hum & Distortion.

You can check out OCC's website at http://www.occmakeup.com target="new"! Another OCC post will be coming up soon! I've been playing with the OCC Brushes for a quite some time now (both on myself and as well as clients) so I'll be sharing pictures of these & along with my comments.

These products were sent for consideration. Please know I will never EVER rave to you guys about a product I didn't love or wouldn't spend the money on! If you have any questions, please let me know!

xox, suzy.
