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. ย When applied dry, it has a softer, more subdued appearance and had good color payoff. ย When applied wet, it was slightly richer in color, and it was fully pigmented. ย I wore it on the lid for eight hours without a primer and did not experience any fading or creasing during that time period. ย 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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

You can add the pigment to a clear polish and your wish is your command. If you choose to do this and don’t have a small enough funnel, you can make a cone out of paper.

How does this compare to MAC Starless Night pigment? They look similar on my screen, but not being able to compare them IRL, I’d be kind of hesitant to order this one. It’s so pretty, though.

Me too! And I love your word, “Burples.” So cute. Loose pigments scare me a little (I’m a wuss!) but this one may just bring me out of my hiding.

Loose eyeshadows can be da bomb.. great way to try them out without requiring the lab equipment is to grab a really soft blending brush, a longish soft crease brush is good, and touch them on top of a cream colour or even another eyeshadow colour. I like to use them to try and create dimension. I would touch this particular colour over a bright purple to make it look even more duochrome. I have yet to master the mixing and applying damp without making a freaking mess because I’m a dork.. I’ll get there eventually and master these suckers.

At least these have a nice little sifter. Believe it or not, the sifter makes things *so* much easier. Also, you can “press” loose shadows basically using a high percentage of rubbing alcohol. There are tons of DIY videos on You Tube.

Intersting indeed, LOL! I had to read the first comment 2X to be sure, LOL. I just Google random beauty related stuff, and I somehow come across some handy things. I found out how to press pigments after learning how to repair broken shadows, which I’ve actually done. I’ve just been too lazy to try pressing any pigments, but I hope to soon.
