I've been using this for years and love it. It's a beautiful colour, and looks super pretty as a blush as well as eye shadow!

EDIT: This colour looks to be a close cousin, if not an exact dupe, to Urban Decay's "X" eyeshadow.
Like most of the Annabelle eye dusts, this one has a two-toned shimmer to it: pink and gold. Although it appears to be simply pink in the container, when applied it has a gold sheen to it when it picks up the light. This may sound excessively flashy, but the effect is actually quite subtle, and I have no problem wearing this shade out and about in the day. It works surprisingly well with the "Myth" eye dust as a crease shade.
On the downside, this colour isn't quite as pigmented as I'd like, even for dayware, and I've take to layering it over a more matte shade of pink. The only other downer to this is, of course, the infamous packaging. The dust comes in a little tub with a snap-off top, revealing an unfortunately small hole that only the smallest of makeup brushes can fit in. Luckily, the caps can be screwed off, but this of course leaves it vulnerable to the same problem that plagues all powders that have screw-top caps: the powder works under the lid and spills out when you unscrew the cap. Honestly, the Annabelle packages aren't nearly as messy as some others (Read: Lise Watier), but it's kind of irritating when they had a fairly mess-free option with the snap-off top, and just didn't bother to make the hole big enough.

I think the reason why the container has that puzzling hole in the top--too small for an eyeshadow brush or finger--is hygiene-related: just tap some pigment out from the container and the hole prevents the pigment from just pouring out. I like it this way because it's clean and keeps my brush and fingers from contaminating the rest of the pigments inside.
I have the Eye Dust in both Golden Pink and Cool Mint. Golden Pink is a stunningly beautiful pigment that can be applied wet dramatically with MUFE Eye Seal (or eye drops for a DIY alternative). I like to do this for a dramatic colored-eyeliner look; sometimes I use it to line the bottom of my eye for nights out. It looks nice with lush black lashes.
Applying the pigment dry is also beautiful and much more subtle: a shimmery, summery flushed golden look. I'd recommend using primer to keep the pigment anchored in place (the staying power isn't great).
Lastly, my favorite use for this finely-milled pigment is to dust it very lightly over my blush (using a realllllly light hand if it's over cream blush). It looks really great with a fresh, sun-kissed dewy-skin look!

When I first saw this colour, I was awe-struck. A perfect shade of the rosiest subtle pink, with beautiful suttle speckles of gold? AMAZING. I don't think I've come across a beautiful shade as this for a while, so its a definite keeper. Its one of those colours that are so subtle on your skin and just glitter like diamonds when the sun hits your face..just amazing.
Would definitely re-purchase! I am a NC35, for reference.

This is my most favorite color of the Eye Dust collection and it is my go-to color for an everyday daytime look. It is a unique color that compliments my NC35/40 tanned skin without being too natural or too over the top. Most neutral shades tend to fade on my skin but this is a subtle shimmer gold and pink, without screaming "in your face" pink. Many people compliment me on my eyeshadow when I wear this.
As for the formula, it clings to the brush easily and doesn't have a lot of fall out like other pigments. It is also easy to blend and sticks to the skin well. This has decent staying power but touch-ups are needed around midday. Would definitely repurchase. Would also recommend this in Chiffon.

I can't believe I never reviewed this product - have been using this for years. It is hands down THE best eyeshadow I have ever used. It gives such a pretty subdued pink-y colour with a golden hint . I pair it with an eyeshadow base and MAC jest, and a darker shadow in the crease. I unscrew the lid and apply it with a wet eyeshadow brush (stila #20 to be exact, but I used to use a Q-tip :) ! I have tried the other eye dust colours and don't like them as much..Try it !

A really nice, highly wearable pink and gold shade. It isn't a really obnoxious, in your face pink that's super barbie. It is very, very nice for any skin tone. I am really fair, but I have a friend who is really, really dark, and it looks nice on her too. My only complaint is the packaging. No eyeshadow brush can fit through that hole, so you have to unscrew the whole lid. Not practical.

This pigment is so soft and fine, it's really high quality for the price. I got mine for 3.99 on sale. The pot seals very well, so no leaks, but I don't know why they put a small round hole into the insert - it's not like you can get a shadow brush through it, so I open it up all the way anyway. As for the colour, I think there's a fine line between a pretty pink and a pink that makes you look like you've been crying all night. This pink is somewhere on that line. Great texture though, and just enough shimmer.

I love this pigment! It was one of the first ones I purchased, and I have since bought them all. This is a lovely gold-pink, but with more gold then pink. The one downside is that they are nearly impossible to press, they always crumble apart so they have to stay pigment. Oh well, I will definitely repurchase if I run out.

This product is fantastic for the price. If you're looking for something vibrant, and extremely pigmented, this isn't for you. However, if you're looking for something a little more muted and day-time wearable, you could definitely look into this product.
- Have to apply multiple layers for vibrancy
- Packaging consists of a pop-top lid with a small hole in the top for access to the product. This is not conducive to actually getting the product out! However, you can screw the top off for easier access.
- Have to work with what could be a 'messy' powder.
- Availability in your Country :(...
- Beautiful color
- Relatively Cheap (Got mine 50% off, which made it even cheaper)
- Daytime wearable pink
- Soft texture, not grainy.
- Blends well with other lines
Overall, this product is fantastic, and I would purchase again. I have paired it with MAC's Charcoal brown and Urban Decay's Smog, and have loved the effect.

I bought Annabelle's pigment dust in Cool Mint and LimeLight. And do I love these. I am specially a big fan of LimeLight, a rich color. I apply powder first and then apply two coats of the pigments for lasting powder. The colors are very rich and beautiful. The price is very cheap as compared to MAC. Will purchase the other color to mix it up. Highly recommend them.

Overall rating: I gave this item 5 lippies (1) because I am a pink-gold eyeshadow whore and (2) it is one of the best of my few pink-gold shadows (I'm a MU minimalist). It is a bit cooler and lighter looking when applied than MAC's Expensive Pink and brighter and more pink than the gold emphasis that's in Laura Mercier's Pink Gold Metallic eyeshadow. I wear the Annabelle Golden Pink especially when I'm feeling light and flirty; the former two are more sophisticated to me.
Where did I buy this: I swapped for it.
Price: Less than $8 per a Google search. The pot contains maybe 3/4 of what a MAC pigment jar holds, I'd guess.
Packaging: This aspect kind of sucks. The product is in a round pot with a little hole in the center of the lid over which a snap-on lid is fixed. I don't know if I'm supposed to dip a very thin, fine eyeshadow brush in there, but I use a MAC 239 brush, which is too large to fit. I just shake a little bit out and use it that way. I've thought of pressing it but am not sure if this brand presses well and don't want to wreck/waste it!
Would I buy again: Since it's Cnadian, I'd try to swap for it, but--yes--I'd definitely want to replace it one way or another.
EDIT: A kind MUAer recently informed me that the top of this pot twists off, thus bypassing the awkward little hole in the top!

I typically don’t like pigments/loose eye shadows of any kind. I’ve found them to be messy, with lots of fall-out, and just a general pain to use with results I could get more easily from a pressed shadow. The reason I bought Golden Pink is because I read about how pretty it was on MUA, so when I saw it on sale along with a bunch of other Annabelle stuff I wanted, I figured why not take a chance and so I added it to my haul. I’m happy I did… this is such a pretty colour… a baby pink with the most beautiful golden shimmer. Looks very delicate on my cool-toned, fair skin. It’s well pigmented and very, very shimmery. Lasting power is alright, but use it wet and it improves a lot (I always use these wet now). As for the packaging, well… I’m one of the few who actually like it! The little container is cute and most importantly the brush I usually use to apply it fits perfectly inside the hole and I can scrape off any excess product without wasting any. For me, wastage has been minimal so far. This product definitely deserves a “will repurchase” check from me because after liking Golden Pink so much, I returned and added Chiffon, Azure and Cool Mint to my collection. They’re all nice colours but Golden Pink is still my favourite by far. I really recommend these as a cheap alternative to MAC pigments for beginner pigment users such as myself, or even those more experienced… everyone should have fun playing with these.

I got 2 of these shades.. one in azure (blue) and this one, which is a pink tone with a gold irredescent as the name suggests. I love this shade it gives a very pretty swatch.
I found that I have minimal uses for it and it finds its way tucked in a storage along with make up, I hardly use. It's too sheer to show up on the eyes, and it's too shimmery for the face.
However it looks quite nice on the lips, gives a lovely gold frost to glossy lips, however I find it hard to spread on the without it emphasizing the lines on my lips. Not worth the time... might as well buy a gloss with gold frost to it.
Well this pigment is very multi-functional but does not serve better than my already existing products that are directly used for the purpose of eyes, lips, and face.

I love this eyeshadow. It is an exact dupe (in my opinion) for MUFE star dust 916- but 1/4 the price. The colour can be used for eyes, cheeks, or lips. It is pretty shimmery, as a blush I think it looks really cute. This one is a must have.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Relaxed Eyes: Blue
I love this. Put it on thick for a brilliant look or sheer it out for a subtle sparkle, look great either way. Mix and match this the annabelle singles !!! :D
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I'm on my 4th tube of this stuff .. been using it for years and I absolutely love it! It's better than any other shadow I've tried and I always end up going back to this .. definitely will continue to purchase!!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Medium Eyes: Green
BEAUTIFUL! Looks great on every skin tone, gorgeous color! It lasts a long time and it is easy to apply with a brush or even your fingers. The only down side is the packaging, I only unscrew the top, otherwise it is almost impossible to get the product out. Other than that, perfect!!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Dry, Tan, Neutral Hair: Black, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
This is hands down the best colour of the eye dusts, it's versatile and can work with any skintone or any part of the face.
