OCC SKIN TINT REVIEW


OCC TINT: TINTED MOISTURIZER
$25.00 USD | 1 FL OZ   OCC Tint is a high-opacity, adjustable coverage Tinted Moisturizer that features a unique moisturizing complex made from Açaí Extract and Coconut Hydrosol and is free of oil, parabens, silicone and petroleum-derivatives - no small feat for any foundation product! In addition to being great for everyday use, OCC Tint also withstands the test of any professional medium including HD Television: OCC Tint was field-tested backstage for two seasons at both New York and Los Angeles Fashion Week where models were seen on the catwalk, photographed from the risers and simulcast live in Hi-Def, with pixel-perfect skin courtesy of OCC Tint.

• An opaque but adjustable coverage, best applied with our #002 Foundation Brush
• Contains Coconut Hydrosol and Açaí Extract for a soothing, moisturizing finish
• 100% Vegan and also free of Parabens, Silicone & Petroleum-Derivatives
The Good:
This product lies somewhere between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation. It provides more coverage than a tinited moisturiser yet not as much coverage as say your normal foundation. 
This also provides very little "emolience" so oily skins will love this. 
The product is adjustable so if you need more you can always layer and these layer very well. The skin finish is demi-matte giving a very real skin like effect. People with normal/combination/oily skin will probably love these.
The Bad:
The shade ranges are broken down into two catorgrays: Red (for pink undertones) and Yellow (for yellow) undertones.
Sadly not everyone will fall into any one catogray. This can mean you on the rare occasion you might need - for example - R3 and Y3 to get a perfect match. Sure you are getting twice the amount of product but you are also having to pay double the amount.
The finial finish on the skin is demi-matte and this product does not love dry skin. So if you're prone to dryness then this product will mostly likely not be for you. If you are looking for full coverage than you might be disappointed as this offers sheer to medium coverage.
The squeeze top can over produce product so use restraint when squeezing. 
Final Thoughts:
This is a very interesting product and one that i actually like. While i don't see myself using it daily or on clients i can see many people loving this product for its sheer coverage and true HD perfection. Blending with a stippling brush is a much better option than a standard foundation brush.  It feels light to the touch and providing you like matte finishes you will be happy. I would like to see a neutral shade selection added as few people enjoy mixing and matching. 
The price point is medium/high depending on what brands you are currently buying.
In the US this retails at $25.00
In the UK this retails at £16.99

  3. Thanks for this you read my mind-i was just about to go looking for a occ review when I saw your tweet, I picked up a y2 sample from lovemakeup but after reading this I may consider getting a r2 aswell to get the right shade. I love the consistency of this product

  4. Great review. I wonder how it holds up under a camera's flash (e.g., MUFE HD face-in-the-coke-pile look). OCC products are also available at allcosmeticswholesale.com (I am NOT affiliated--just your average makeup addict). I have been looking at OCC there with interest for a while and might actually try something now.

  5. I've been wanting to try OCC for a while, but haven't yet because I don't know how to pick out a shade without trying them on in person (which is obviously impossible to do when buying online). Anyone have a solution for this?

    1. I haven't seen it for the tinted moisturizer, but the OCC foundations have mini-sets allowing you to try out different colors. There are two sets, divided into Red (r) and yellow (y). You get all 6 foundation colors within each color group:

      It's not super cheap, but you can use the colors you wouldn't normally use on its own for highlighting, mixing or contouring. Or as a present to a friend with lighter/darker skin :)

  6. @Zuzu's Petals: I'm dying to know what "face-in-the-coke-pile" means?

    @Samantha: Most people are familiar with the MAC shade system so I would try calling OCC or the vendor and asking them what is comparable to your MAC shade. You might just get the closest shade (how dark or light you need) and order one red and one yellow in that shade.

  7. Seriously thank you, for this Review. I have oily skin (sensitive, with acne scarring, and easily fakes), and have been going over reviews trying to find what will workout best for me. I have been interested in Airbrush foundations but worried about them really not lasting, rather I have a problem with makeup sliding off my skin slowly throughout the day even with primer and setting powder. Now I have a hunch this formula might work out better for my skin type. Thanks again.

  16. I tend not to write many responses, but after looking at a few of
    the remarks on "OCC SKIN TINT REVIEW". I do
    have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or do a few of the comments come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I'd like
    to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.

    Could you make a list of every one of all

I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Appreciate it!
