I was sent a few products from CocktailCosmetics.co.uk i got a few OCC Products, Lime Crime and a brand i had never heard of before called “Neve Cosmetics” i will have reviews up for those products soon.
What i wanted to talk about was the product from OCC because its mostly a brand i haven’t tried before i received the new OCC Lip Tar stained glosses and a few products for the eyes
The new Lip Tars are pretty amazingly they are the Stained version which are new, they are still as pigmented as the original version. I love the packaging for these as its in a perfect little container but i have heard that they tend to leak. They come with a little brush which is always useful to have when out and about because you can’t apply these directly to the lips you need a brush.
As they are a stain they will last for ages i find that you get at least 8/9 hours from it but i find the “Gloss” of the stain will last for about 6 hours
I got the colours Voyeur which is your basic primary yellow, Jealous a pillar box red and Androgyne which is a bright orange
I also got these awesome little pigments and creams which are quite like something ive tried before but then again nothing is new these days.
The Loose Colour is pretty awesome because they come in a variety of shades i got Ginger which is pretty obvious by its name is a Ginger Shimmer, Flicker is a beige shimmer and Foxfire is a silvery lime shimmer.
These are loose shimmer powders could be used as bases or something to put on top of a shadow as they are quite sheer, usually i would apply these on top of a cream base and blend them in
I also got the Creme Colour Concentrate which are cream eyeshadows that can be applied anywhere to the lips, cheeks, eyes but i used the 2 i got as a base colour for eyeshadow the colours i got were Mercury a true silver and Dark Matter a Dark Green Grey. These have a great creamy texture and last for quite a while i feel they do set after a while but after that its about 6+ hours wear which is usually a day
These colours are really pigmented the colours remind me of the Illamasqua Cream Pigments and the Chanel Illusion D’Ombre
Dark Matter looks amazing when you apply Foxfire on top of it but i applied Illamasqua Victim eyeshadow which is a bright blue, i always apply deep colours then lighter colours on top it helps them to pop a little
I havent really tried OCC before i got these products and i actually love them i really want to get more.
