Obsessive Complusive Cosmetics loose colour pigments in Poison and Artifact

April 26, 2013

This is the last post about the products that I bought from Lipstick Republic when they were having a 20% off sale. I bought an e.l.f matte nail polish (see post here), a Lime Crime lipstick (see post here), and these Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour pigments.

So I bought these two pigments on sale for $11.20, but they are normally $14 at Lipstick Republic (use the code RepublicVIBs for 10% off your order). These contain 2.5g of product and are vegan and cruelty free.

There are over 30 shades to choose from, which made it really hard deciding which shades to choose. I originally was looking at nude shades, but then I realised that I only reach for pigments when I am going out and want a bold eye look, and I have plenty of nude shades of pigments that I never use. So I ordered the shades Poison and Artifact because they are shades that are quite bold, but wearable. I thought they would also work well with my brown eyes, and would be perfect for the cooler months coming up.

The packaging of these pigments are great, the container is clear so you can see which pigment you are reaching for, and they also come with a sifter so it's a little less messy than other pigments.

Poison heavily swatched and sheered out, Artifact heavily swatches and sheered out

Poison: This is a gorgeous shade, and I am really glad that I bought it. It is a dark teal shimmer and is the perfect shade for brown eyes. This will be a great shade for a smokey eye, and would look amazing with black or gold. This can be applied quite heavily or sheerly, but if you do want to apply it heavily, you might want to apply it wet (aka using a wet/damp brush to pick up the pigment) so you avoid too much fall out. I think this would also be perfect over a dark cream shade, like the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Audacious Asphalt, which will bring out the teal colour without needing you to pack on the colour.

Artifact: This is a really pretty copper shade that has quite a heavy red/cranberry undertone. This is a beautiful autumn shade that I will get a lot of use out of. This can also be heavily applied or sheered out, but this is more pigmented than Poison. This shade is my favourite autumn alternative to the typical bronze or gold eyeshadow. Very happy with this shade.

These are some of the nicest pigments that I have used, because they are finely milled and are easy to apply evenly. If you don't like pigments at all, then you won't like these, but if you are on the fence about pigments then these might impress you. Of course, if you are like me and you like using pigments, then you will love these! I am already looking at which shades I want to order next.

What do you think of pigments? What are your favourite brands or shades to use?

  1. Ooh, both of these are so rich, shimmery, and pigmented! The formula sounds wonderful. I have several of each MAC Pigments and MUFE Star Powders and love them all, but I'm so tempted to try some OCC offerings now :)

  2. Wow I'm loving these colours! They look really great sheered out too!
    May have to pick up some of these next time I'm on LR :P

  3. Wow these loose shadow pigments have such a great colour pay off and they look so vibrant! Poison looks amazing, you can really see the depth of the colour in your swatch. Artifact does make for a great shade to use instead of your tradition bronze eyeshadows, it looks stunning! I haven't tried these before but they look great :)

  4. Eeeep Poision looks gorgeous!! Love the colour and how shimmery it is.


  5. I love Artifact, it's gorgeous!
