OCC Jubilee Loose Colour Concentrate
OCC Fall 2011: Jubilee Loose Colour Concentrate
OCC Jubilee Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz.) is described as a “pastel blue with intense green/yellow 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.
Jubilee is so much more than it is described. From straight-on, it’s an airy, pastel blue with a silvery-white shimmer and sheen with subtle pale gold shimmer. It has a very frosted finish that becomes metallic when the product is used damp/wet. Color coverage is sheer when applied dry (but it would be fantastic for layering), while color coverage is much more opaque when it is used damp/wet.
The color isn’t just blue, though, and I’m so happy to have been able to capture at least a fraction of that in a swatch! It’s a duochrome that flashes pale blue, pale green, and iridescent purple. It’s quite lovely, which is why this shade is perfect for layering and changing the dimensions of anything worn underneath.
Giorgio Armani #10 is reminiscent in the pastel blue shade, but it doesn’t have the duochrome sheen. It reminds me more of Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie, which is a nail polish, but it has a lot of the same twists and turns in the shimmer.
Jubilee performs best wet, if you want a really dense color, but because of the way it looks and acts, it’s a worthy layering shade–kind of like a glitter top coat for nails. The powder is soft, finely-milled, and applies smoothly.
