If you're familiar with the brand Osmosis Pur Medical Skincare, you're probably most familiar with the items of skincare that they make. I'm currently testing some and I'm impressed so far! You may not know that Osmosis also has makeup products. What I have for you today are two of the Watercolors, a loose type of eyeshadow that is vastly different than any others you've used. I hope this post can convey the differences accurately and the superiority of this products.
On the left you will see Onyx and the right is Pink Champagne, (0.075 oz ea.). And you can see that the properties of the shadow accurately describe their names.
I think I'll just tell you right now that these are by far the best loose pigment makeup I've ever used. I've used several brands of loose shadows, starting with Mac pigments. When I started doing makeup, access to different brands, formulations and colors was fairly limited, so I used a lot of pigments and loose makeup to get what I needed. In the last few years, I gradually got away from them when the ease of pressed shadows from every internet nook and cranny satisfied my color cravings.
I didn't expect to love the Osmosis. I assumed they'd be messy and like any other pigment I've used. Not. Sooooo not!! I'll stop my story right here so that you can look at swatches...mean, right...?
When you move and the light hits different facets of the color, the shimmer will show either more or less. They have multi-faceted color vallues. They are superb.
The first time I used these, I held my breath and steadied my hands, expecting a Mac-like experience. The formulation seemed somewhat different...they feel hydrating to the touch. The company claims that they are a hydrating eye formula offering a radient glimmer to the lids without creasing. I can tell you this is TRUE. I've had zero creasing with these shadows which are infused with green tea, vitamins A, C and E, and goji berry.
More importantly, I've had zero fall-out from them, whether we're talking about dipping into the pot with a brush, applying the shades or wearing throughout the day. I've had NO fallout!!! And here's the other thing, I just slapped them on, without any special glitter primer or anything like that. They wore really really well. And I have had no fall out. How is that even possible?
In the picture above, I'm not all dolled up or anything but this was my first run of the shadows. And I took more pictures when I got home after running around all evening, probably five hours later.
I find the wear really impressive. That's the Pink Champagne in the inner eye and Onyx at the outside.
Another time, I tested the shadows while going to see zoo lights. Again, I had no fallout applying or later after we got home. It's simply amazing. AND...these are by far the best loose shadows I've ever used. I wish we had feel-o-vision so you could feel the texture. It's really cool.
Bottom line is the Osmosis Water Colors are the best loose makeup I've ever used. I've said this 40 times already but you have to understand how impressive it has to have had no fallout in application or during wear. And NO creasing!! I'm truly amazed at this product. Of course I want all the colors now, lol. They are really terrific!!!

I'm going to leave you with my smoldering look....and ask....
...do you have a favorite loose shadow you'd like to tell me about, brand, color or both?
