It turns out that I was bad this month. Really bad. In fact, I ended up signing up for three deliveries from Sephora, which I don't even want to talk about :P
The first two are very OCC heavy, and I'll go ahead and review the stuff I got here :)
This haul was initially motivated by the fact that I was completely out of concealer and wasn't totally sold on any choices, so I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and try something new. I saw Temptalia's glowing review of the OCC Skin Conceal concealers, and after hours of staring at her swatches, I ordered Y2 (medium yellow undertones) and R1 (light pink undertones) for my blemished and undereye circles.
I should mention that these concealers run about $20 for .28 oz, but they are far more pigmented than any other concealer I've tried. Just for reference, I've found that the average size for a concealer is usually between .25 and .3 oz.

Next up, I picked out an OCC Loose Colour Concentrate in the shade Jubilee. I've been lusting after Sugarpill's Lumi pigment for ages, and since this seemed similar (and pushed me over $50 for free shipping), I decided to give it a try.
I can't even begin to tell you how freaking BEAUTIFUL this thing is. In the pot, it looks like a baby blue pigment, but once you swatch it, it turns into a gorgeous minty green with gold shift in it. It's absolutely wonderful and I'm so so so SO glad I took a chance on it. I'll definitely be buying more in the future! I did my best to capture the duochrome in this!
