Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Jubilee Swatches and Review

I'm a lover of all things duochrome and iridescent, so when Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics released Jubilee Loose Eye Colour Concentrate as part of their Pretty Boy collection, it was love at first sight.


OCC describes Jubilee as a "soft baby blue shimmer," but it's so much more than that. It does have a baby blue base, but it also has a green and turquoise duochrome shimmer. At some angles, it even shifts to a faint purple at the edges. It is magnificent.



Swatched over bare skin (no primer). Dry (left), wet (right), with flash and without. You can see how the tones shift with the angle and lighting. From a green-turquoise shade of blue to a sky blue with faint purple accents.

Sometimes colors that look this interesting in the jar don't always look as good on the eye... this one does. I've used it a bunch of times and every time it still amazes me.

Two looks I've done with this color:


I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance Lemon Drop
NYX White Eyeshadow Base (lid only)
OCC Loose Colour Concentrate in Jubilee on lid and lower lashline
Ben Nye Cosmic Violet in crease
Ben Nye Amethyst in crease and on lower lashline
Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Perversion

This was the first time I used the color and I was really happy with how it turned out. The blue and green tones mix perfectly with the purple Ben Nye colors. I used Jubilee over a sticky base (the NYX White) and it seemed to make the color shift stand out more.


For this one, I used:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
NYX White Eyeshadow Base (lid and lower lashline)
OCC Loose Colour Concentrate in Jubilee on lid and lower lashline
Sugarpill Chromalust Loose Shadow in Royal Sugar in crease and on lower lashline
NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Purple
Make Up For Ever #92 on brows
Cover Girl Lash Blast Luxe in Black Royale

First off, Royal Sugar is insane. It is SUPER BLUE. Combined with the blue-green duochrome of Jubilee, it looks even more amazing. The green sparkles disappeared out of it when I blended it, but Jubilee added some of its own green sparkles, so I didn't miss them.

So. OCC Jubilee. Love it. The only downside to it is that it needs a sticky base or to be used wet if you want it to look extra duochrome. Otherwise it looks like a lightly duochrome turquoise shimmer. Both ways are nice. I, of course, prefer more duochrome, so lately I've been using it wet and it looks even cooler that way.

Obsessive Compulsive Loose Colour Concentrates are available directly from OCC and are $12 for 2.5 grams. They have a lot of cool looking colors and every single shade is vegan.

  1. Love! I feel like I have a similar color from somewhere, but minus the duochrome amazingness. Just makes it seem kind of blah now, though.

    1. I think I have a handful of colors that remind me of this (Fyrinnae Otherworld comes to mind), but I can't think of any in my collection that are exact matches... More duochrome = always better haha

  6. Oh wow! Those eye looks are gorgeous! It makes me want this eyeshadow ASAP now! Although I also really wanted Sugarpill's Lumi, and this makes it hard to decide which one I need more. I wish there was somewhere that sold these as samples though!

    1. I think it must be slightly similar to Lumi- Lumi might be more white based. I want it, it's on my list of things to order next! :D

    1. Wow, thank you so much!! :D I haven't done a tutorial; I'm not sure how to do one! I don't have a video camera so I'd only be able to do step-by-step pictures, but that might not be so helpful for eyeliner, haha :D

  23. Maybe I missed it, but what did you use on your brows? It looks almost purple and I love it! Where do you buy Ben Nye? I only see it on Amazon and very limited selection there.
