Worst MAC eyecolor I have EVER used and I am a big MAC fanatic. It is such a nasty looking color on me, I cannot describe it. I have medium-olive skin and this color is disgusting on me. It looks like a nice brown with a hint of green in the bottle, but really it looks all neon green on.
I have a sample of Old Gold, and will eventually purchase a full jar. I think Old Gold is gorgeous- one of my favorite pigments! Reminds me alot of Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow, Green Brown pigment, and Golden Olive pigment. Golden Olive is more golden-green (think: Golden Delicious Apples), and Old Gold is more antique gold and green. (I guess Old Gold sort of is the pigment version of Sumptuous Olive e/s.)A real easy look for Old Gold pigment is as follows:Sweep Shroom e/s on lids from lashes to brows. W/ MAC 224 brush, brush Old Gold pigment into crease and outer third of lids. Line with Blacktrack Fluidline on upper lashes, and tightline bottom lashline w/BT, also. Brush a little Sumptuous Olive e/s under lower lashes, and coat lashes with black mascara of choice. Nice day look! continued >>
I love this color. It's a lovely gold that shimmers green. It's easy to blend. When I want a more gold look I use Corn SS as a base and when I want to pick up more of the green I use Lucky Jade.
Another pigment that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! My favorite part is when it hits the light - it turns into a stunning green! This is definitely a worthwhile addition to any makeup collection!
love this goldy, greeny color.... looks good with golds, browns, or greens... use them wet too for high pigment
Overall this is a nice pigment.The Gold isn't simular to a 24 k gold color.Applied to the arch mixed in medium or alone it comes off as a more copper toned gold or antique gold.Alone its like most of the MAC pigments very shimmer and lighter in tint.It does have a touch of a green hue to it expecially when Medium or Water is added.The gold does shine through.You would have to try it to see.I didnt give it 5 lippies because its not my ultimate favorite gold pigment I could actually see myself setting this aside so 1/4 of a tsp.does good for anyone who wants to try this.Its great for any fashion style from Classic,Professional,Antique and Goth looks.Like its title "Old Gold" It looks like it sounds.Antique.
Beautiful pigment. Dark gold that flashes green. Apply over Lumene e/s base and 'Bamboo' paint. Paired this with a Black Opal Gold Rush; dark brown e/s in outer corner, matte yellow under brow, and dark brown liner. For refernce, I'm DDD NW45 or Iman Clay6.
Mix this with black for a vibrant teal/chartreuse green that is *amazing* and magically, beautiful.
I really loved this pigment once I figured out the way to get it to work for me. I am a nc15 with green-blue eyes. I don't remember what combos I used the first few times as I used it in my crease/outer v, but it always looked like it was in the wrong spot or something, I can't describe it, it's just so unique. So, I decided to put in on my lids and paired it with the le mineralize shadows, illusionary/burning ambition. That made all of the difference, the three go together so well on me. I'll have to experiment more, but this e/s is just gorgeous with it, it shines a kind of greenish like antique gold. Probably not for the faint of heart makeup wise!
I like it, but like everyone else said... It's an odd color and is hard to mix. Very pretty green shimmer, though.
