Company’s Description

A selection of crème color pigments that can be used on eyes, cheeks, or lips.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics has recently expanded its makeup line to include loose pigments, cream lip & cheek colors, and nail polishes. Its new line of Crème Colour Concentrates can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks and comes in six (6) different shades. This review is for the shade Miriam–a subdued, whitened plum.

Packaging: 9/10

This product comes in a clear, plastic pot with a twist-off lid.

Quality: 9/10

Miriam is a dusty, soft plum shade. The color is noticeably grey-based, so while it looks good on the cheeks, it looks sickly when applied to the lips. The color is matte but leaves a very subtle sheen on its surface.

The color is very pigmented and you only need a small dab of product to cover each cheek. The cream formula feels waxy and stiff in the pot, but melts under the warmth of your fingers and transfers onto a brush easily.

The color maintains its pigmentation through the day without fading (when applied to the cheeks). When applied to the lips, the color is equally strong and lasts about two (2) hours on the lips, with lingering color for an additional two (2) hours. The product is a little drying, so you should apply a balm or gloss on top.

Ease of Use: 9/10

This cream formula transfers onto a brush easily and blends over the skin pretty well. You can use this color as a stand-alone shade or underneath a powder blush.

Price: 8.75/10

For $20.00 you get 0.08 ounces of product. This is a noticeably less-than-average amount of product. At the same time, this product stands at a lower-than-average price point and the concentrated nature of the pigment means you don’t need to use as much product as normal.
