I love, love this shade. I get compliments almost every time I wear it. It really brings out my blue-grey eyes, and is a perfect almost-neutral with a pop of shimmer if I want something cooler-toned than browns but more interesting than greys. It's a fairly deep colour and highly pigmented, but blends easily. I don't even bother pairing this with any other shade, since the multifaceted nature of the colour provides its own contour and highlight. Very flattering.
This has to be my fav EM shadow. It is absolutely gorgeous.
A must have from the EM shadow line. It's a very sophisticated antique bronze. I feel chic just wearing it.
If I ever run out of this I probably will, but not sure if I'll buy another. It's not that it's a bad product necessarily, but the pigmentation and blendability of this relatively dark mineral shadow isn't quite as deep as some BE and some from Fyrinnae or MAD Minerals. I'm an EM Fan, and while I like this color for an all-over lid color/smokey eye look (it's very pretty) it's not the best as a crease or accent/outer V color. It's not very blendable if you are trying to use it in targeted areas like the crease only or outer V unless you apply it dry and then you can get fall out and the pigmentation suffers when you blend it. It is very pretty for an all-over smokey eye, however it's not as pigmented as some I have from Fyrinnae, BE or Mad Minerals. The color is a not super dark but dark bronzed-brown/khaki with tons of shimmer and sparkle. I wore it in the crease with Cypress and Cypress had the better staying power and was easier to use and just looked better with a better texture, and this was with a base and applied wet with Fix+. I am wearing it again today with HiP Paint in Secretive all over the lid up to the crease; and am using Baby Bath as a highlight and a dark grey kohl liner and I prefer it this way. I have the sample size, and I'm sure I'll use it up but don't know if I'd buy it again.
This really is a pretty color that every girl should have. I think it's more of a bronzey brown with some gold. not gold glitter but just the color. it's really beautiful!
Intense pigmentation, blends evenly, lasting color. Such an alluring, mysterious shade. Its as a antique grey-green with gold shimmer. When its applied wet it takes on a metallic sheen that looks great applied wet as an eyeliner. Great for people with fair coloring or hazel or greyish eyes!! EM mostly make rubbish eyeshadows but this is one of the best.
Beautiful color. Went on nicely with my cheap $1 brushes and blended easily.
This is really a pretty color. While it's on the "darker" side, it blends and lightens up beautifully. It can also be used wet as an eyeliner. Fabulous! I love it!
I'd been curious about this one for a long time and had heard a lot of positive talk about it so I finally tried it and its really very nice. I think you need to be prepared that it is a very dark eyeshadow - if you usually wear light pastel colors or neutrals you may not have as much of a use for this one. The best description that came to my mind when I saw it was the color of fools gold. Almost black with lots of silvery/gold shimmer (but at the same time I'll be very clear that its shimmer and not glitter so it doesnt stand out as sparkles or anything). Its great if you want the smokey eye look or like me have trouble wearing light eyeshadows. If you are a friend of darker shades this one is a must - its so versatile it can be your everyday anytime color.
This color is simply stunning! It is hard to describe, it is a dark brownish, grayish with a hint of olive? That is my stab. I use it in my crease and heavy on the outer portion of the lid. I have it layered over hot chocolate as the base, Love love this color, I am glad I took the advice of the reviews here on MUA!
