It's very pigmented.
Goes on very smoothly and easily.
I usually use a silicon brush with this.
One thing I don't like is the little bottle it comes in....I always get the pigment all over the place.
LOVE...LOVE..LOVE. I can hear bells ringing and birds chirping. This pigment is FABOOSH! I actually got this on a whim. I was ordering a bunch of pigment samples and needed to add one more, this looked pretty in some swatches I saw so figured would give it a shot. Didn't have high expectations at all as golds are so tough for my skin tone (think Gold Mode yuck, Gold Stroke yuck). I am NC20-25 and golds can turn all sorts of scary orange on my pigmented brown lids. This however, did not, and I am in love! This is such a brightening shade! I like this actually on its own, its enough oomph to give you a beautiful sheen and with a little eyeliner, bam you are done! This comes off as a true golden shade (the pics above really capture the beauty), perhaps with a slight brown undertone. But it wakes up my eyes and it blends very well. No fallout issues whatsoever. I love this in the spring/summer. I pair this with Nars Luster blush and Mac High Tea l/s and its just the perfect combo. You will not be sorry if you try this!
Finally, the perfect gold for my skintone that doesn't look to orange or harsh. I absolutely love this pigment on my lid, with a darker crease color (like MAC's Espresso or Print) and I love this for my lower lashline as well. This color really brings out the green in my eyes- its amazing! I recently wanted to order some MAC pigments from The Beauty Sampler. I've always loved MAC pigments, but purchasing a full size means you'll have it for years. I own the infamous Vanilla pigment, and nearly three years later, its still full from nearly everyday use. When I recieved all the pigments I ordered, this one just really stuck out to me when I swatched it- the others where gorgeous (like Heritage Rouge & Cocomotion) but this was just beautiful. I apply this over the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk' and foiled with Fix + and its just gorgeous! I'm so happy that I found a compatible gold for my skintone (NC 20-25 for ref.) continued >>
Oh, hello there Holy Grail. Where have you been all my life? I don't know what it is about this particular shade of gold but it makes my green eyes look like emeralds. The texture is second to none and is so soft and blendable! I definitely need to grab a full size of this!
Like all MAC pigments, this is intensely pigmented, but because it's such an understated gold shade it applies as a very neutral sheen. I absolutely love using it all over the lid with an intense black liquid/gel cat eye line along the lash line to create a traditional Hollywood glamour look (like the pic on the far right - don't know who took it but it's gorgeous!). I have very pale skin and I find that this shade gives a fresh, bright eye. Like with most pigments, this needs a base, preferably a paint pot as it gives that tacky surface for the product to cling to. This along with tapping off excess product before applying will help to avoid fallout as well. But as long as you apply it correctly it will last all day and look absolutely stunning!
This pigment is so pretty and very versatile and easy for a everyday look. I picked it up at the CCO and I love it.
This is one of the products I felt I could not live without then when I got it, it was just eh....ok! I got mine from pressed like shadow, it came pressed already. The color is very neutral, being a a very shimmery golden beige. The color on my lid is more yellow-gold. I usually use this as an all over lid color with a colored gel eyeliner. Like all pigments it goes on smooth and blends easily and of course has fallout. I would not buy this again cuz I dont think the color is that original but I'll use the product till it's gone.
I loveeee this pigments , is amazing!!!!
I use on my cheeks as highlighter!!! love it!!!!
I really love this pigment. I find myself using this almost everyday. I found my first bottle at the CCo. My son decided to spill the new bottle on the carpet. I purchased a new one and it came in the new jar. It was also 3g instead of 4.5g. This is so sad. I would like to repurchase but only for the old jar or for a cheaper price.
This is my absolute favorite pigment! I am very fair, and this is a gorgeous pale gold/tan on me with lots of sparkle, but not chunks of glitter. A nice neutral with a bit of flair that is still appropriate for the office. I love to pair this with an olive green liner (usually UD Stash).
