OCC Datura Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Datura Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as an “opalescent pink/lavender.” It looks pink in the jar, but it is much more lavender once applied; it really has an opalescent finish so it flashes both pink and lavender. When it’s applied damp, the lavender color gets pulled to the forefront, while when it’s applied dry, it looks a bit pinker, softer, and less metallic. It’s more opaque when applied damp as well. MAC Dynamic Duo 2 has a more silvered shade. MAC Light Violet is pinker. theBalm Curtain Call is pinker and darker.

The formula is described as “lightweight, ultra-refined, [and] densely pigmented” that can be used on the eyes, face, and body.  Datura has an incredibly fine-milled consistency that’s softer than silk.  It applies smoothly for the most part, but it seems to have a definite sweet spot if you want to use it wet–it can’t take too much dampness or else it seems to clump up.  I tried using it wet on the inner corner, and it did this to me a bit.  If you want a sheerer look, I would recommend using it dry, rather than wet, and if you wanted to layer this over another shade to add iridescence, that’s also another good way to use this.

Of the five shades that launched with their spring/summer collection, Datura was the only one that was sheer when applied dry.  I had no problem with the wear, though, and there was no residual fallout during the day.  It wore about seven hours over bare skin without fading or migrating; after eight and a half hours, it was very slightly faded.

    This reminds me of some stage makeup my mum used to use for face-painting. Damn, I really want it now…

  3. Gorgeous eye opening opalescence!

    Have you tried it over a dark base?  I find that black bases really help duochromes pop!

  5. Yep, still in love with how this one looks! /eyeshadow sighs :P

    this reminds me of pink opal pigment 

    •  @arduouspixie Are you referring to the MAC pigment?  If so..THANK YOU because I was looking at the list of dupes on MAC website (I’m in Canada and MAC is easier for me to get my hands on with no duty!) and I also came across a pink opal pigment and I wondered if it might be a closer dupe since it is also in powdered pigment form.
