I’ve acquired a new appreciation for highlighters this year and picked up the OCC Creme Colour Concentrate in Pleasure Model ($20) at IMATS thinking it would be a really nice one on many complexions. After using it on myself and on my friends, it has become my new favorite.
The OCC Creme Colour Concentrates are multi-use cream products. I’ve used these types of products from other brands before, but the OCC CC’s are very thin and slippery in texture. I feel like I couldn’t use Pleasure Model as an eyeshadow because it would most likely crease. It’s not a problem though, because I bought it with the intension of using it as a highlighter. Although, it could also work as a shimmery overcoat on the lips.
Like I said, Pleasure Model is really thin and emollient. It retains a lot of shine so it looks wonderfully dewy. It’s not high on shimmer or glitter so it just highlights the cheeks with a lovely pearlessence. I wanted this pink shade as a highlight because I sometimes think white/champagne colors look too dramatic on medium to deep skin. The pink tones also complement cool pale complexions so I think this highlight is fairly universal. It blends well over foundation, bare skin, and powder so I definitely recommend it as a highlighter.
What’s your favorite highlighter?
