Decided to play around with my new Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Color pigment that I received from the wonderful David Klasfeld.  Everyone talks about OCC’s liptars but y’all should not sleep on their loose pigments!!! They have a lot of unique shimmers that are finely milled, smooth and highly pigmented and they have quite a few matte pigments.  The colour of the day is Wasabi – a midtone yellow-green with gold shimmer.  This looks just like wasabi, just like it!

OCC's Wasabi Loose Colour

So here’s the look!

Looks gold but it's not...

  • M.A.C. Olive Groove eye shadow – inner lid using fluffy blending brush like M.A.C.’s 224
  • OCC Wasabi Loose Colour – applied to middle lid, packed on, using flat, stiff shader brush like M.A.C.’s 239.  Blend into the Olive Groove.
