OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate

OCC Acacia Loose Colour Concentrate ($12.00 for 0.088 oz. / 2.5 grams) is described as a “yellow with blue-green duochrome.” It’s a light-medium gold with yellow-brown undertones and a subtle green duochrome. The duochrome is hard to catch except at just the right angles. It can be really pretty when you do catch it, though. Bare Escentuals Remix is a bit darker, more golden, and has no duochrome. MAC Treasure Hunt is paler, less yellow. Bare Escentuals Standing O is paler. Urban Decay Eldorado is darker and has no duochrome. MAC Gorgeous Gold is the closest shade I could think of, as it also has a green-ish duochrome, though it appears a little more golden with less brown in it.

Acacia has a soft, finely-milled texture that applies smoothly and evenly both wet and dry. I get about the same color payoff either way (which is good), but the metallic finish comes forth when it is applied dampened. When I wore this on the lid, it lasted a full eight hours without creasing or fading.  I don’t normally like using loose eyeshadows, but I’ve been loving the feel and application of OCC’s spring/summer shades.  I only wish the duochrome in this shade was more pronounced; I thought it might come out by wearing a green eyeshadow next to it (Foxfire), but it didn’t seem to help.
