Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Conceal // Review

Vegan Makeup, Cruelty Free Beauty, Vegan Foundation

I am sure most of you have heard of Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics or OCC before as they are famous for their line of  liquid lip colors known as Lip Tars, but today I want to share a different product of theirs the OCC Skin Conceal.

Purchase at OCCMAKEUP.com  Liminited Shades Avalible at Sephora.com


This Concealer comes in ten shades that amazingly stretches over a wide variety of skintones, five shades are yellow based while the other five a red based. I found myself in the medium yellow based range with color Y3. I think most makeup lovers can get together and agree finding your shade in a foundation/concealer is half the battle in finding a good one. With there OCC concealers I think almost everyone should be able to find their color as well as easily mix one up for custom colors.

When I see concealers in pot form I tend to automatically imagine the texture to be a thick heavy cream that is either ironically dry or terribly greasy, I am happy to report neither is the case with this gem! As soon as your touch this product it melt and it smoothes onto the skin like a dream and is surprisingly lightweight. This product does have a somewhat 'soft set' after application but I would strongly recommend using a setting powder to lock it into place for long-lasting wear.

On the OCC Makeup website the recommended application is to mix with a drop of their primer and apply with a brush. That is the best application technique for applying this on to the whole face as a foundation as I do, though I do not currently use their primer you can also use your moisturizer for a custom tinted moisturizer! I also use my real techniques contour brush to apply. When using this for typical concealing (under eyes, spot concealing) I find smoothing it on with my finger works fine.

Coverage for the OCC Skin Concealer is a solid medium plus it is just a hair shy of giving that complete block out of full coverage. As someone whose face is covered with hyperpigmentation this concealer covers nearly all of them I do spot conceal after I apply it as foundation, patting in with my finger over stubborn spots.

Below are the ingredients and below that are two pictures of me wearing this as foundation and concealer, so far I am absolutely loving this and I definitely plan on picking up more for some highlighting and contouring colors. If I can bit a bit honest I'm so over the HD Glamour girl look where everyone and their mother and little cousin are contoured and highlighted to the drag stage. I think that trend needs to be taken down several levels and people need to get back to showcasing their face. What do you think?

GARNIER BB CREAM REVIEW

Garnier BB Cream Review Combination Oily


Me wearing the BB cream, it's completely evens out my skin and while all my pigmentation isn't covered I do feel like it's less noticeable than on my bare face.

"Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream is a new multi-faceted solution for a multitude of skin concerns. If you have oily skin, then you probably have a product to treat shine, and to minimize pores, and to cover blemishes. And maybe a few more products, too. Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Oil-Free B.B. Cream can address all those oily-skin needs with just one application. Your skin will have a flawless, lightweight matte finish, and you’ll only need one product to get it."

FORMULATION is water based and very lightweight. Its actually pretty nice coverage it's not going to cover serious pigmentation completely but it's a great base if you wanted to add foundation over. OIL-CONTROL factor is decent I would still recommend putting powder over it. It is really long lasting, adheres very well to the skin without any cakeyness. I'm not sure about the claim to minimize pores but I don't really one product can truly to everything. I also don't find it super hydrating.

It comes in three shades Light/Medium, Medium/Deep, and Deep. Price varies from 10.00-14.00 dollars.

PROS 
Light Formula
Evens Skin Tone
SPF 20
Inexpensive 
Long Wearing          

CONS
Does not stay Matte all day
Does not hydrate skin

I will probably use this tube up as we are just heading into full time sun season and hopefully have a final impressions on this product. Initial grade 2/5
