at the moment i only have a sample of this product but it is by far my favourite glitter of them all!
i fell inlove with it when i first swatched it and couldnt stop looking at it.
i find it can be used with alot of different colours. i tend to use it over a dark base like anything black.
and if you apply it when it looks like liquid metal its absolutely amazingly gorgeous.i like to do a realy dark black smokey eye then put this wet or dry over the lid and it looks so pretty.
i plan to get the full size jar soon.
WOW Beautiful... I would have to disagree with comments on how this product is so gritty....ultra fine and adheres well, one look at this gorgeous pigment and I NEEDED IT !!!! Love it !
Reflects Antique Gold is very pretty in the jar, which is why I had to buy this one. I mean I like to give it a look at least once a day because it is soooo beautiful. Okay, on with the review. First, RAG can be very glittery on my lids if I don't blend it in really well. I find that it looks best on me if I use constructivist pp first (after using MAC prep+prime eye) then spray fix+ to my brush and pat on reflects antiqued gold and blend it out. I love this look, it's very natural looking and not OTT on my NC43 skintone. Reflects Antiqued Gold can look very glittery if I use a large amount and don't blend it very well, so I have to become a minimalist with this product. Overall I love ARG and I would repurchase it again.
When the MA showed me this glitter, I was thinking, what the...why would I want to buy this huge bottle of glitter?? I'm happy I got it though because this really make your smokey eye look have that sexy pop. This is super finely milled and is not your typical chunky glitter that'll make you look like you're 5 years old.
Although it is a glitter, it is a very elegant eye product. I usualy use it all over the lid on top of my eye shadows ( especially browns, bronzes, taupes and champagne colours) to give them an extra oomph! It is ideal to make your morning eye make up into a night one!!! The shininess is there but because of the muted golden colour, it is not flashy but really classy! There is some fall out but it is quite expected-it gets better if you apply it wet! Just try it!
I love the color but i hate how it gets EVERYWHERE! Plus i wear contacts and I'm scared it will irritate my eyes. For does two reasons i would not buy again.
This pigment is from the MAC Chill Collection. In the jar it looks like its name should be Blackened Gold, but when applied it's a bronzey gold color with varying flecks of color. The glitter particles are very fine and loose so you have to be careful not to get it everywhere. I wear this with UDPP as a base and it adheres without a problem and lasts all day. I wore it as a highlighter on my brow bone with Dark Blue Green on the lid, and they make the perfect jazzy smoky eye. Mind you, I don't wear glitter shadow often, but I am so glad I didn't let my friend talk me out of purchasing this. She says I have enough gold pigments. LOL
Beautiful color - just as everybody described it, but I'm not liking the texture of this too much. MUFE's Diamond Powders are far superior, IMO, albeit much more expensive. This has some grit to it, and why not - it is glitter, after all; but MUFE's are soooo finely milled, and adhere to the lids so much better, there is just no comparison. Also, as a slight side-note - you are not really supposed to use this on or near the eyes, though clearly, so many people have; but I have suffered 2 corneal abrasions in the past (non-makeup related), and don't wish to take that chance again.
WOW i love this Glitter the color soooo pretty even i just bought the full size one i want to go back to get an other one for back up haha :)
The perfect goes-with-everything shimmer. The glitter itself is extremely fine grained. I use this over any combination of eyeshadow...especially for nights out. Absolutely gorgeous! Tap on a little with a wet brush. Won't need another...it's HUGE! Totally worth it!
