OCC Mirrorball

Mirrorball is a gorgeous multicolored cosmetic glitter from Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics. Officially, it is described as a "disco-era silver with rainbow reflections," but photos do not do it justice. The glitter is absolutely stunning in real life.

Mirrorball came shrink-wrapped and with a sticker-sealed sifter, similar to OCC's packaging for their loose colours.

it looks like a galaxy!

It is a finely milled glitter that doesn't feel gritty like other ones I've tried. Also, considering that it's a glitter, it was quite comfortable to wear on my eyes. Keep in mind that OCC does not recommend their cosmetic glitters to be used in the immediate eye area. However, I have used it on my eye lids, and didn't have problems whether I used Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy or NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils as a sticky base.

One particular aspect I love about OCC is that their ingredient lists tend to be very simple. They can easily list all of the ingredients on the actual products themselves. Plus, all of their cosmetics and brushes are vegan and cruelty-free. Mirrorball looks insane when light hits it, a silver base with pretty multi-colored reflects. It's so wonderfully bright and gorgeous.

I don't own many cosmetic glitters, but Mirrorball is the best (although the most expensive) out of the three other brands I've tried. I love the color so much, and hope to snag some more OCC glitters in the future. Cosmetic glitters contain 2.5 grams of product and go for 12$ each.
