OCC Cruising Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Fall 2011: Cruising Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Cruising Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz.) is described as a “brassy gold shimmer,” and it will launch with the Pretty Boy Collection on September 6th. These are “lightweight, ultra-refined, densely pigmented powders” that can be used on the eyes, face, and body.

The description is rather apt–it’s a brassy gold with a very shimmery, metallic finish. It’s a brownish gold with a hint of green flash (it almost looks a little olive in the pot). Swatched dry, it’s less metallic but still produces good color payoff, while swatched dry, it’s more opaque, smoother, and the finish turns more metallic. It’s more metallic and less yellow than Le Metier de Beaute Chameleon and Urban Decay Rush.

Cruising has a soft feel, and it applies smoothly. It can be used dry without lots of fall out, but you’ll want to pat it on, rather than sweep, to initially apply the color–then you can use sweeping motions to blend it out better. I do prefer using loose colors damp or over a stickier base, just because the overall nuances of the colors tend to come out better this way.  It has a three-holed sifter, and it works well.  I had to do quite a lot of work to get as much product out and onto the main level for photography purposes.

B+
I love when loose colors work well even when they are used dry! It is better when applied damp (or mixed with their Mixing Medium) but it's still quite good dry. The texture is finely milled, so the product applies smoothly.
