I bought an airbrush compressor from Dinair. Their cosmetics caused a horrible eczema attack on my face, so I threw it all away. No ingredients are stated so no idea what caused it. I mailed them regarding this but no response at all. Then I purchased OCC and Kett. Even though I like OCC I prefer Kett for several reasons.
* OCC is more matte than Kett, which looks a bit more satiny.
* I need more drops of foundation from OCC than from Kett to cover my face. Even though OCC is less expensive, in use Kett is the least expensive.
* Shelf life of OCC is horrible. Within a few months all bottles went bad, OCC performs much better
I do prefer some of OCC highlighters. They are much more subtle than the ones of Kett.

So this is my take on OCC Skin Foundation: used properly, it is a FANTASTIC foundation. Natural-looking, long-wearing and great color-match. But its all in the application (I use airbrush to apply). The #1 thing I find with OCC is its very easy to overapply. What I've learned is: (1) apply the foundation until you reach the point where its covered your blemishes somewhat, but you still think you need more (2) DONT apply more! Move on to your eyes or lips or hair... (3) Take another look at your skin after 15 mins or so, then apply to where you still think you need it. This approach relly helped me stop over-applying the stuff, and I get better results.
Another piece of advice I have is to use OCC Primer under OCC foundations. Also, color-match OCC foundation on a sunny day but standing underneath a shade (like a tree). Matching in shaded sunlight gave me my perfect match (Y4).
Hope this helps!

What they say: "Lightweight yet high in coverage, this waterbased liquid airbrush foundation creates the look of a flawless complexion with a minimum of product"
High in coverage?? it's not even noticable on my skin it's like slightly tinted water :/ Only reason i still use it is that i paid for it but i use it underneath my foundation, sort of as a primer.. just so i don't have to throw it out. I just don't get this product at all and i wouldn't recommend it, will never ever repurchase.

OCC's airbrush foundation description and images are completely inaccurate. My yellow-based foundation ended up being red-based. I should have returned it immediately, given their no-return policy, but I trusted OCC to provide a yellow-based foundation based on their yellow-base description. As I rub the foundation I see streaks of red. Since I have no use for a red-based foundation I literally use this foundation as blush. Do not be misled.

I purchased the sample packs of all of the airbrush foundations, blushes etc. I really like this foundation. I haven't had any clients break out from it because it's water based, not silicone like others. It blends wonderfully, the colors are great. I use Y2, Y3, and Y4 the most.
