Mmm...I was excited for this one but I ended up liking it the least from my whole order. I expected it to shimmer both pale pink AND gold, not just a gold. I know a good dupe of this and it's Annabelle's Golden Pink pigment. Dead on aside from pigmentation - Fyrinnae's is more golden-ish sparkle than actual colour, Annabelle's is both a subtle peachy-pink and gold, Annabelle's also has better lasting power. For these reasons I will not be repurchasing this particular colour. In terms of value for money, Fyrinnae's RHE is a better deal, you get a full jar for about 5 dollars; Annabelle's is more like 7 dollars. It's nice, but the pink is nigh invisible, and I find it just looks like a sheer, blah sparkle. I wanted better pigmentation. I'm giving it a 3.5
I'll have to see how I feel on how this looks with my eye color. I used to used a similar light peach shade to this years ago and liked it back then.
Best glowy color ever! Have purchased twice now, I can always count on this to look pretty. It's ethereal and wearable at the same time, LOVE!
Ooh, La La! One of my favorite eyeshadows of all time. One my pale coloring, this shadow is a truly unique light, bright gold without any reference to pink or peach. Odd, really, because it looks peachy in the container. After I build a look with crease, etc., I put just a touch of this on the center of my eyelid and blend very lightly. Perfection! It's an amazing bit of brightness without a shout of glitter or OTT call for attention. It just brightens the whole look. any look. It's like a facilitator or mediator, pulling together all the taupes, purples, browns, or greens I might use. Lasts all day, brightens my tired eyes, no fallout. I like it for a brow highlighter and under the eye as well. Will definitely buy again, and have already bought a backup. (For reference, since I'll bet that it it behaves differently on different skintones, I am NC-20/25 with blonde hair and dark brown eyes.)
I wore this again for the first time in over a year. I completely forgot how awesome this color is. I patted it on over UDPP, with UD Bourbon to line. The color payoff is excellent (I don't think Pixie epoxy is nessesary for this e/s, but I'm sure it would enhance the gold shimmer).
The pink/gold duo chrome is apparent on me and I'm very fair skinned. I see this working really well on darker skin tones too, over Pixieepoxy.
I wont be abandoning this one again!
I would have to agree with other users that this is a nice color provided if you are fair. I am NC15 Asian and this shows up on me. hmmm if you are NC20, this color is still flattering but if you are NC25 and above, beware. This is a pink with lots of peach and gold undertones in it. Most pinks look sickly on fair people and this one doesn't. I am happy to have this in my eyeshadow family.
The product overall is excellent,very finely milled and great quality in terms of colour pay off and wear. Unfortunately the pink duochrome barely dhows up on me, and it looks almost acid yellow for some reason. Not a nice look :/ for this reason I woulf not repurchase. UD's X is a much less yellow, subtle version of this and I think I'll stick to that instead
Sadly this color did not work for me, it made me look sick for some reason :/ It's not a bad product, but it did not work for me personally. I have seen many EOTDs with this and it looks gorgeous, so i will not give it a bad rating.
Rapunzel had extensions is a lovely pinky gold in the pan. On my NC40 lids however it is just a simple gold. The pink doesn't show at all on my lids. For someone with my skintone this is not a must buy, it's just a gold like any other in my collection on my lids. For pale or cool toned folks, this is a must buy because the pink undertones will show up on you and it will look lovely on you. It's also extremely, extremely shimmery. Even if you love shimmer, grab a sample before you get a full size because it might be too much for you.
This is a really fabulous product! I would have to say it is one of my favorite eye colors of all time. The color is stunning. I recommend purchasing a mini size from Fyrinnae for $2 just to try it out. The color is hard to describe because depending on the lighting it can look like a golden peach with a hint of pink or a pinky peach with a golden shimmer. I really like colors like Champagne Toast and Window Shopping from Aromaleigh. I like neutral shimmery colors with different colored sparkle/shimmer effects. Rapunzel is unique because it has 3 different colors/effects -- the golden shimmer, the peachy tone, and the pink effect. I am not a pink eyeshadow person. I have been told that reds and pinks make me look sick. But, I was able to wear this color today on the inner half of my eyelid and crease and then pair it with Aromaleigh's Olinda in the outer crease/lid, and it looked very pretty. I have to give props to Phyrra for her FOTD that inspired me to purchase this color. This color is definitely a keeper!
