Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, the brand made famous by their incredible Lip Tars, has officially launched their new OCC: Skin line of concealers. The OCC Conceal ($20 USD) is a full-coverage, vegan concealer formulated with skin-soothing ingredients. The little pot of miracles is sold in 12 different shades, varying in yellow (Y range) and red (R range) undertones.
The concealers were available for advanced purchase at IMATS LA, however they are on the website now for sale!
I spoke with David, the owner of OCC, and he said that these concealers were meant to use the same technology and give the same result as their airbrush makeup, just in a solid form. This is a great idea, because as an airbrush makeup user, I still always reach for concealer- so its nice to have a formula that works well with the airbrush makeup, or just on its own (or with any other foundation for that matter).
These concealers are on the full coverage end of the spectrum, although I wouldnt say they are as full coverage as say Cover FX or Dermablend the real magic is that while they offer high coverage, they are still incredibly natural looking. They blend into the skin and become nearly invisible, its quite amazing really.
After a few seconds, they set (without needing powder) and stay on for several hours without budging. They arent the longest lasting concealers Ive tried (that award still sits with MAC Pro Longwear), but I like to layer them in thin layers, building where needed, and I find that helps to keep them on all day. The texture is creamy, yet it sets to a dry finish. I did experience a bit of creasing, but nothing that would turn me off the product (Im very prone to creasing)- I just blend it in again and it looks great.
Ive also tried using it as a foundation (trust me, a little goes a very long way)- and it really looks incredible! Flawless coverage with a natural-looking finish! Id highly recommend them for makeup artists kits because of their versatility (I wish I had these when I was freelancing)!
Like I mentioned, these concealers come in both yellow and red undertones (denoted by a Y or R before their number). Unfortunately the set of concealers I was given by OCC didnt contain R1 or Y1 (probably the most popular color Im assuming), so I apologize for the lack of swatches of those shades. Even more so, Y1 would be my perfect color so I ended up having to mix Y0 and Y2 together (for reference, Im NC20-25 in MAC).
I recommend going for an R (red) shade if youre looking to counteract dark under eye circles, and a Y (yellow) shade if you want to neutralize redness on the face (like blemishes, patches, etc).
