OCC Loose Colour Concentrate in Platonic: Review + Swatch!

They say you can't help falling in love.  You may have a type, or a list of specifications you are looking for, but when you find "the one", all of your requirements fly out the window.

I don't like loose powder shadows-- scratch that-- I don't like loose powder products in general.  They're messy.  They fall out all over my face while I apply them, and I have mastered the art of knocking jars off tables, resulting in serious cleaning time.  (The latest victim: my patio rug... MAC Teal pigment doesn't exactly match my color scheme.)

But none of that matters when it comes to the Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrates... I LOVE them.  Today I wanted to share the latest addition to my OCC collection, Platonic.

To simply describe it, Platonic is like if Glinda the Good Witch sprinkled fairy dust over a unicorn, and that unicorn kissed your eyelids.  And that is an understatement!  It is a duo-chrome icy silver-pink that is gorgeous in the inner corner of the eyes, or even all over the lid for a princess-esque look.

I love the OCC Loose Colour Concentrates because they have the most beautiful finishes out of any loose shadows I've tried.  Many of the shades are duo-chrome and have a lovely sheen to them.  If I want my eyeshadow to pop, I reach for one of these.

Loose Colour Concentrates come in plastic jars with sifters.  While they are just as messy as other loose products, the result is good enough that I don't mind!

You can find OCC products in some Sephora stores, as well as on the OCC website.  I have purchased all of my OCC products through IMATS shows.  The company is always there and the products are always on a great discount!

What do you think of loose powder products?
