OCC Magenta & Turquoise Pure Cosmetic Pigments

OCC Pure Cosmetic Pigments ($12.00 for 0.088 oz.) are a professional-use product sold by the brand. They’re pure, uncut pigments, so they are best used when mixed with other cosmetic bases; OCC suggests things like body lotions, cosmetic grade talc, mixing mediums, primers, or their clear Lip Tar. I’ve shown them swatched wet (with just water) and dry. These kinds of products can stain the skin as well.

  • Magenta is a vibrant purpled magenta. When applied dry, it sheers and blends out easily as a result. With just a little water to dampen the color, it goes on more intensely. I couldn’t think of any dupes.
  • Turquoise is a vibrant medium-dark teal. It’s a green-based teal. It didn’t apply as smoothly when I applied it with water, but it worked well dry, though it looked a touch chalky against my skin. Inglot #372 is a little lighter but similar in color. MAC Double Feature 3 is also similar.

This is kind of a product in its raw form; it’s something waiting to be transformed, so for readers who love to play with makeup and mix and twist things up, these could be fun. If you prefer ready-made products, check out OCC’s Loose Colour Concentrates instead, which have already been mixed and formulated to wear with much less fuss.

  1. I love how matte these are. I would worry about them staining skin, if I were to use them on a model.

  2. These are beautiful! The purple in particular, oh my goodness!

  3. You should really check out TKB Trading Mica’s.
    Super cheap and an amazing variety of colours.

  4. Devi

    Woah, that’s some intense color.. if there was an orange one, I’d be all over it and use it as an eyeliner!

  5. Melody

    These are stunning! Idk why I’m dragging my feet on checking out OCC.

  6. WOW! Beautiful colors!

    so intense! i wish they were at imats vancouver earlier this year.
    do you know if these will stain?

    Would you consider this Turquoise to be similar to MAC’s long discontinued Turquoise and MUFE’s dupe Pure Pigment #18? I’m a sucker for turquoise (even though I rarely wear it) but since I already own both MAC’s and MUFE’s, I’d hate to get a third.

  9. Arlee

    Oh man, that magenta pigment just GLOWS when it’s used wet! Though, the teal and magenta together bring back memories of the early 90’s :P

  10. Rachel

    I don’t really see the point when you can just buy your own pure pigments from makeup supply stores for cheaper.

  11. Suzanne

    Indian readers: don’t these look like Holi colours? I love ‘em!

  12. Violet

    OH. MY. GOD.

    Brb, putting in my shopping cart.

  13. Zahsmar1489

    I think I just fell in love with those colors. Will buy them ASAP

  14. Doesn’t the magenta look like a dupe for MUFE #92?

  15. karmen can

    MUFE makes the same colors i think. They are called pure pigments and are also in similar packaging. could be possible dupes.

  16. C.R.P

    Please review/ post pics of more color swatches by OCC. I’m excited to try the brand. I understand they’ll be opening a store in NYC soon.
