I bought a sample of this and fell in love almost instantly! I found a 7.5gr jar on a blog sale and jumped on it right away. I use this as a highlighter and on my eyes. In the summer it is the perfect shade. My friend is a performer and I always give her a small jar of it when I see her. She loves it as much as I do! Now if I could only find her a jar :)

In the pot this appears much more vibrant than it does on. It's a sheer pink gold with a nice dose of shimmer. As with most MAC pigments, this applies nicely and is easy to blend. A very nice complement to any eye colour!

Looks pretty Coppery (and scary) in the put but once applied is a gorgeous shimmery sparkly pinkish gold.

Very deceptive pigment as in the jar it looks like an intense orangy-peachy-golden colour, but applies quite neutral. On my fair complexion it shows up as a light golden shimmery soft peachy-pink. Great neutral colour that warms up my complexion. I do enjoy wearing this either on the lid or in the crease, but try to pair it with brown satin & matte shades to tone down the shimmer. Probably will never repurchase as I don't wear it often and the old school jars of 7.5g last forever!!!

I just received a sample of this and my first reaction was: I want more! I can see myself using this up very fast and getting the full size....
I love the fact that it's very soft and sweet but still has a good amount of colour to it. I paired it with NYX loose pearl eyeshadow in charcoal in the crease and it really brought out the blue in my grey-greenish- blueish eyes. Love love love!

this is one of my favorite pigments!!! my bf prefers natural makeup and loves shimmery stuff (as long as its not brightly colored) and he loves when i wear this. i got it in a swap and im SO glad i got my hands on it!! its not really gold to me.. its more shimmery tan.. kind of reminds me of really clean sand and it sparkles but isnt glittery if that makes sense so thats a huge plus for me!!
i wear Naked pigment on my lid, Goldenaire in the crease and halfway up the eyesocket and then sweep Ricepaper e/s on the browbone and blend. curl my lashes and apply a few coats of black mascara and i look radiant, glowing and refreshed but not overly made up
this is ony of my favorite looks and it gives me an excuse to rock Big Bow or Ms. Fizz =)

Love the gold color :)

I've had a sample of this for quite a while, and based on my sporadic use of it, I guess I think this is just average. In the jar, this appears to be a medium, warm, peachy-pink with both gold and silver reflects. On my NC30 skin, it kind of takes on a nude-ey tone - like how shimmering flesh should look. It definitely goes on paler than the color that appears in the jar. Although this is certainly pretty and pairs well with virtually any color you might think to use, my reaction is just "meh". After a while, it seems to me that all MAC's neutral highlighters are about the same, and it is really unnecessary to collect them all. I am perfectly happy just sticking with my two standbys - Naked and Vanilla. Won't be buying a FS jar of this one.

This is very pretty. It's a tanish, golden beige color on me. I am NC25 with yellow undertones. It's a pretty neutral and I wear it often. I most likely would repurchase if I ever run out. Goes on smooth and is easy to blend.

This is such a beautiful pigment! I can use it wet or dry and it works like a hot damn. So creamy and smooth. I also use it as a face/eye highlighter so it is a totally multi-purpose product! A beautiful creamy beige-y golden. Would repurchase but I figure my jar will last me a lifetime anyways!

I never thought I would buy a full size of this because looking at it, yes it is pretty but just looking at it I wasn't that impressed. I use it all the time and that's why I bought a full size. It is great to mix with lipgloss or to put on your cheeks and my favorite is to use it as a highlighter. I pair this with lovely lily and in living pink eyeshadow and I'm set. This is a versatile pigment as others have mentioned. It is so lovely could even be used on people with dark skin I gave a sample of it to my friend whos black and shes soo gorgeous in it! It is limited and hard to find now but I hope I don't run out!

This used to be an HG for me, but recently I've started to think that it's way too frosty. But it's a beautiful color, and if you love frosty pinky neutrals, you'd definitely want it in your collection.

I definitely wouldn't call this "golden", but it is a beautiful pigment. It's more of a light pink/peach with a silvery cast. More color payoff than pink opal, lighter color than apricot pink. Same great product as all MAC pigments (NO creasing, and I have oily lids!). Love them!

received a sample of this in a swap from a very lovely MUAer (thanks again VanessaVQ!) and i'm incredibly grateful that i did! goldenaire is a lovely warm shimmery color that i would classify as a taupe/light bronze/pink tinged shade, very wearable, very versatile, very universally flattering. the quality of this MAC pigment is undeniably lush- it's so finely milled and soft that it just smooths into your skin, almost resembling a cream instead of a powder. i could see this working with atleast 1,000 different colors, so it would be worth buying the full size if you could get your hands on it. could be used as a sheer wash, a more intense metallic looking lid, a crease color, a brow highlighter, etc. just beautiful and will get a lot of usage from me! ;D

i think this is my favorite pigment ever! its so beautiful! i wear it all the time washed over lid and then i line my eyes with accent red. i could never be without it! i highly reccommend all you ladies to purchase!!! i always wear my pigments with mixing medium so i can mix it heavy or light, i prefer light for a day look!

Love this pigment! As others have mentioned before, it seems to be simular to dekchair, but I prefer Goldenaire over dekchair. Less frosty, less salmon, more warmth. I love using it as a brow highlighter, inner eye shadow, paired with coco pigment or a navy eyeshadow. If I'd ever ran out I'd definately try to get another jar..on ebay as it's LE..

This is a pretty peachy pinky gold pigment. People seem to prefer this over Deckchair, but I am one of the few that prefer the ladder. The difference between the two that I see, on my skin Deckchair is actually darker on me than Goldenaire.
This works really well with pinks, peaches, and metallic colors. *thumbs up*

Love it, shimmery and shiny but can be used for day looks if well blended. I like the idea of someone below to use it as a highlighter on the lower eyelid. I can't be without it!

This limited edition Pigment isnít all that exciting, Iíll admit, but sometimes usability and versatility really count for something. It does remind me of Deckchair, but maybe a tad warmer? Itís a light peachy shade with a golden sheen. Not too sure the difference would be noticeable if I used Goldenaire on one eye and Deckchair on the other. Iíve used Goldenaire as a highlighter these past few days and holy moly is it sparkly! Itís not shimmery at all but down right all sparkle sparkle. Admittedly for the most part, I donít like my highlighter shade to completely overtake the entire look, but sometimes it can be doable. I do like to use it at the inner corner of the eyes but I havenít used it as an all over lid color because I fear it may be too frosty. You can also use this Pigment atop the cheekbones as a highlighter though of course it wonít be very subtle, but still an instant face brightener. Also mixed with any color lipgloss, Iím sure this would be beautiful. Overall I think Vanilla Pigment is a better multi-purpose Pigment but this is such a great value for your money. I personally wouldn't repurchase since I already have Deckchair and a million similar shades.

This is another one of my staple pigments. I got a sample of this in a swap and love it so much. On me it's a golden, bronzey pinky brown. It can be really shiny so I blend it in well after I apply it. My favorite way to use this is just a swipe under my lower lash line. It totally perks up my eye color and makes me look so awake and summery. Love this but dread the day I run out....
