Continuing with the OCC Pretty Boy Collection for fall 2011, I now have the new Loose Colours, Pure Pigments and Glitter from the collection!
I am a big fan of their Loose Colours since they are always super soft and super pigmented. These are the first pure pigments and glitter I have tried out though.
Some info about these products:
Pure Pigments are 100% pure uncut pigments. They are matte finished powders and can be used alone but also mixed in with mixing mediums, primer, lotions and clear lip tar. Use them sparingly! They come in seven colors.
Cosmetic Glitters are micronized glitter which can be used for face and body art. They aren’t for use in the immediate eye area and come in thirteen colors.
Loose Colour Concentrates are micronized colour pigments fused with shimmering mica. You can use these on the eyes or body. They are lightweight and very pigmented. You can mix them with primer or mixing medium as well. They come in thirty-six colors.

Magenta is a bright pink/purple. I had the HARDEST time ever getting the product out of the shaker-container for some reason with this one. I shook and shook and shook and barely any ever came out. It was very patchy for me, though I didn’t use it over any primer or anything. Maybe I got a bad batch? Maybe I used too much? Not sure…
Mirrorball is a silver with holographic glitter. This definitely feels gritty-ish since it is pure glitter but has a really nice strong holographic look to it. When applied dry (like I did) it’s a little sparse as you would expect with glitter.
Jubilee is a really pale icy blue with a strong yellow/green duochrome. Gorgeous! This is super soft, super saturated and a great color.
Cruising is an antique gold verging on olive green/gold metallic. Of course this is my fav utterly amazing color.
Poison is a deep blue/green with shimmer. It reads more blue to my eye than green both in the container and on my skin. For some reason I didn’t expect a color this dark to be so even, but it is! Very nice.
Turquoise is a bright green toned teal. The color reminds me of a lighter chalkboard green. This one came out of the container very easily, unlike Magenta, and applied a lot more evenly, but not perfect still. It does look a little chalky as well.

I really love the Loose Colours and the Glitter is great, though I personally never use glitter. I am on the fence about the Pure Pigments because they weren’t as smooth and even as I expected them to be. Maybe I need to try them wet.
