Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics: Loose Shadows

Recently I was given the opportunity to review Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics loose powders. These are highly pigmented loose powder shadows that pack an awesome punch! My sister in law volunteered to let me use her for a model... thanks sister! Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics (website HERE) is 100% Vegan and PETA approved.  The company was founded by two make up artists who developed this product to stand out in an over crowded cosmetic marketplace.  You can read their entire story HERE, it is quite interesting and innovative. The shadows can be used wet or dry, I swatched them all dry. I suggest an eye lid primer first so the powder has something to stick to and stay in place. These are truly fantastic...
(Color descriptions from the website)

Cavu Blue: billiard chalk blue
Saturate: teal with green reflects

Flawed: intense true gold
Lafayette: dirty olive green

Cherry Bomb: vibrant red/fuschia
Wasabi: neon green sheen

Cherry Bomb and Wasabi are super bright! I actually did some color blocking with these two on my sister in law for fun and it looked very cool! Flawed is so gold that it actually looks like a mirror in the container or gold leaf on your lid. The shimmers are gorgeous as well; they reflect light and add depth to the color.  
These can be purchased online at OCC Make up and are $12.

  1. I wish all these companies would offer pressed pans for an extra fee. I would be all over that. I've never ordered any loose shadows like this as I assume I will just get annoyed with them. The colours are so fantastic thought that maybe it's worth the gamble.

  2. beautiful makeup.=D
    makeup never hurts, as enamel.
