Finally! The wait is over, the new OCC Skin Conceal concealers are in my kit. After months of waiting I got the precious five concealers sent over to me – thanks to my sister in California who always acts as my makeup keeper stateside.
In the summer of 2012 while at the Makeup Show Chicago, I tested and swatched these awesome concealers, OCC sells all vegan and cruelty-free products (not tested on animals). What I liked the most is the consistency, cream-like, hydrating, subtle and buildable quality of this product, all supremely important when you are working in types of climates/ scenarios. I didn’t get the complete set (I will eventually), instead I went for the medium yellow concealers Y2, Y3, Y4 and the reds (pink) R1 and R2 most colors which are hard to find here in Asia. I kind of regret not getting the R0 and Y0 which would have been the lightest of the concealers, good for highlighting and covering fair skin types but like stated earlier, I know I will sooner or later.
I swatched using natural light and my (hairy) forearm which is quite fair with a hint of yellow undertone, the chart on the OCC website is more a guide as you can see from the swatch. OCC concealers are availble only through the OCC website and their boutique in the Lower East Side NYC.
