LOVE this shadow SO much. It is my staple for a really gorgeous smokey eye. I love gold and i love black, and when I saw this shadow I knew it was meant to be.
You can get many looks from this shadow, depending on how much gold or black you pickup from the pan. It's really lovely. Lasts all night with a primer. Just love it!
Not to mention it is so darn pretty.
I have so much love for this shadow it is unreal! It is the HG shadow for making the perfect sultry, sumptuous smokey look that you want for nights out. It is a really complex colour, depending on how its applied, I've had it look more gold, more black, slightly olive gold or hints of grey. Very beautiful whatever the outcome. Plus I've had it a while now and it is showing no signs of wearing down, so it was definitely a good investment on my part. It looks gorgeous in the pan too, baked to perfection and super blendable. I would definitely say this is a shadow more suited to those with a prefence for dramatic smokey eyes, because it can be a little hard to make it look subtle. But, if you work at it you can make this look acceptable for daytime. Complete multitasker, well worth the rave review, definitely buy again and recommend.
RAVE for Gilt by Association. Gorgeous and versatile, looks fabulous on me. I can see both the gold and the grey-black on my lid when applied with a fluffy blending brush. Dark, dramatic, fast. Easy to get just right. Perfect for a night out, but could also be worn for day.
I love this! You can use it in so many ways, more gold, more black, mix them together, wet, dry... aaahmazing. Can easily build the colour up or just brush over slightly for a sheer gold/bronze look.
I love getting a little brush and running over my black winged eyeliner for a touch of sparkle.
Staying power is also great and a little goes a long way. I use this all the time and it's still like new.
GAWD! This is gorgeous. A blackened gold w slight bronze. Great pigmentation and staying power. Applying wet makes it even better. Sexy, sultry, mysterious. HG smokey eye. Works for daytime and layer it for night time. It's very fragile-I accidentally dropped the tester on the counter and broke it. I wet my brush, tap it in the shadow a few times then tap it on my lid.
I just got this at Macy's a week ago- maybe MAC is bringing it back. I chose one with more gold veining instead of bronze.
I think this has got to be one of my most used shadows, however I feel like I have the same amount as when I started! When I go to MAC, I always haul since we donít have one where I live. I was stuck deciding between this and another mineralize shadow and Iím happy that I didnít put this one down! I like that you can pick up either the black or just the gold, or mix the two together. I got one with tons of streaks so itís definitely a new color everytime! I use this to make simple daytime looks, or edgy going out looks! Will definitely repurchase!
I noticed Nordstrom had this on their website recently. This is the easiest smoky eye anyone can achieve just using this one eye shadow. On my skin tone, it gives off a brown to olive green gold color. I put a black or dark brown NYX jumbo pencil down first and apply GBA with a wet brush over it and blend up towards the crease and it gives off such a sexy, smoldering, and effortless look. This colors gets a lot of love from me, it just screams sexy.
I have finally got my hands on this elusive eyeshadow. I missed out when it came out with style black so i had to purchase it on ebay. I pat this eyeshadow on over sharkskin and it looks so beautiful brownish and glittery. These ladies at my work said "Oh my god you're eyes are so beautiful it looks like the makeup they do on American Idol." So i need to buy another one but luckily it seems as though it will not run out anytime soon.
I loved wearing this one by MAC! I paired it with carbon, and nars surbaya duo and the look was dramatic indeed. I loved the ease of use with it and the uniqueness of the names in the style black collection. If they were not ltd, I would buy again
I missed out on this the first time and was able to find this at the CCO. They had this one and the blue one (forget the name of that one), but I chose this one because I already have the Hard Candy dupe of the blue one.
Ok, so if there is one thing you must keep in mind, it is that you HAVE to use this wet. I applied this completely dry and it was just a gross, boring greyish green/gold smudge. I then wet my brush and applied more, and it began to look like it does in the pan.
This is OK, I was not that impressed with it, and I'm putting it up for swap. I honestly think that the Hard Candy dupes are better. The MAC MES might be more fine, but the HC ones last longer and have more vivid coloring. I paid $13 for this at the CCO, and I think that the $6 dupe from Walmart would have been a better purchase. I don't really like drugstore stuff, but in this situation, honestly, the dupe wins.
