OCC Technoir Loose Colour Concentrate
It’s Blue! It’s Purple! Maybe It’s Both…
OCC Technoir Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.50 for 2.5g) is described as a “purpled navy shimmer.” It’s a bluish-violet with navy blue and violet shimmer. There was an almost duo-chrome-like finish to it. Giorgio Armani Ecailles is similar but has a more satiny finish. MAC Wintersky is lighter. Estee Lauder Untamed Violet is darker, more purple. Burberry Midnight Blue is similar, slightly bluer. MAC Naval Blue is darker, bluer.
The texture is soft, finely-milled, and applies smoothly without effort. When applied dry, it has a softer, more subdued appearance and had good color payoff. When applied wet, it was slightly richer in color, and it was fully pigmented. I wore it on the lid for eight hours without a primer and did not experience any fading or creasing during that time period. This shade will look bluer or more purple depending on what you use with it, but alone, it looks more purple than blue, but it’s not full-on purple.
