It's very pigmented.
Goes on very smoothly and easily.
I usually use a silicon brush with this.
One thing I don't like is the little bottle it comes in....I always get the pigment all over the place.

LOVE...LOVE..LOVE. I can hear bells ringing and birds chirping. This pigment is FABOOSH! I actually got this on a whim. I was ordering a bunch of pigment samples and needed to add one more, this looked pretty in some swatches I saw so figured would give it a shot. Didn't have high expectations at all as golds are so tough for my skin tone (think Gold Mode yuck, Gold Stroke yuck). I am NC20-25 and golds can turn all sorts of scary orange on my pigmented brown lids. This however, did not, and I am in love! This is such a brightening shade! I like this actually on its own, its enough oomph to give you a beautiful sheen and with a little eyeliner, bam you are done! This comes off as a true golden shade (the pics above really capture the beauty), perhaps with a slight brown undertone. But it wakes up my eyes and it blends very well. No fallout issues whatsoever. I love this in the spring/summer. I pair this with Nars Luster blush and Mac High Tea l/s and its just the perfect combo. You will not be sorry if you try this!

Finally, the perfect gold for my skintone that doesn't look to orange or harsh. I absolutely love this pigment on my lid, with a darker crease color (like MAC's Espresso or Print) and I love this for my lower lashline as well. This color really brings out the green in my eyes- its amazing! I recently wanted to order some MAC pigments from The Beauty Sampler. I've always loved MAC pigments, but purchasing a full size means you'll have it for years. I own the infamous Vanilla pigment, and nearly three years later, its still full from nearly everyday use. When I recieved all the pigments I ordered, this one just really stuck out to me when I swatched it- the others where gorgeous (like Heritage Rouge & Cocomotion) but this was just beautiful. I apply this over the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in 'Milk' and foiled with Fix + and its just gorgeous! I'm so happy that I found a compatible gold for my skintone (NC 20-25 for ref.)

Oh, hello there Holy Grail. Where have you been all my life? I don't know what it is about this particular shade of gold but it makes my green eyes look like emeralds. The texture is second to none and is so soft and blendable! I definitely need to grab a full size of this!

Like all MAC pigments, this is intensely pigmented, but because it's such an understated gold shade it applies as a very neutral sheen. I absolutely love using it all over the lid with an intense black liquid/gel cat eye line along the lash line to create a traditional Hollywood glamour look (like the pic on the far right - don't know who took it but it's gorgeous!). I have very pale skin and I find that this shade gives a fresh, bright eye. Like with most pigments, this needs a base, preferably a paint pot as it gives that tacky surface for the product to cling to. This along with tapping off excess product before applying will help to avoid fallout as well. But as long as you apply it correctly it will last all day and look absolutely stunning!

This pigment is so pretty and very versatile and easy for a everyday look. I picked it up at the CCO and I love it.

This is one of the products I felt I could not live without then when I got it, it was just eh....ok! I got mine from pressed like shadow, it came pressed already. The color is very neutral, being a a very shimmery golden beige. The color on my lid is more yellow-gold. I usually use this as an all over lid color with a colored gel eyeliner. Like all pigments it goes on smooth and blends easily and of course has fallout. I would not buy this again cuz I dont think the color is that original but I'll use the product till it's gone.

I really love this pigment. I find myself using this almost everyday. I found my first bottle at the CCo. My son decided to spill the new bottle on the carpet. I purchased a new one and it came in the new jar. It was also 3g instead of 4.5g. This is so sad. I would like to repurchase but only for the old jar or for a cheaper price.

This is my absolute favorite pigment! I am very fair, and this is a gorgeous pale gold/tan on me with lots of sparkle, but not chunks of glitter. A nice neutral with a bit of flair that is still appropriate for the office. I love to pair this with an olive green liner (usually UD Stash).

I got a sample of this pigment recently and adore it. Blonde's Gold is a very shimmery (but not glittery) neutral gold. Golds are somewhat hard for me to wear- but not this one :) This gives lids an amazing sheen and really lights up my green eyes. It's terrific on the inner corners of the eye for a little brightening, on browbones for highlighting, and I also love blending it with a little Tan pigment on my lids. Glam but not gaudy...just perfect!

I'm upping this to a 5 because it turns out to be the perfect, foolproof lid color for me. Old review: Wow! The shade is so different on than it looks in the jar, be sure to try it. It's a gorgeous pale gold, excellent as a highlighter - in the jar it looks more like tan or antique gold. It's a truly beautiful highlighter and not as boring/everyday as Vanilla pigment.

This is my new HG pigment and I going to purchase more tomorrow!. I looked in the jar and saw what I thought was a cross between Dazzleray and Tan pigments to me. I swiped it on my hand at the store and was sold! It shows up on my skin as a nice golden beige/tan with peach & gold flashes of shimmer. This may be one of my all time favorites.

In the jar Blonde's Gold looks golden with mocha undertones, but it applies as a true golden color with peach undertones. The texture is very smooth and blendable. It's so easy to pair with other colors. I love this as a highlighter. This was released as part of the Overrich collection. I love ALL the pigments in that collection.

I finally got a super large generous sample of this fabulous piggie. I already have the MAC pigment in gold mode so I wanted a sample first before I sprung for a jar of this. The two pigments are indeed nearly identical. HOWEVER, I find that I like the texture of blonde's gold much better, it imo seems to be much more finely milled than gold mode (which has some gold microglitter?? why MAC why?!?!). Also, blonde's gold has a touch more brown to it than gold mode, thus making it more of a golden wheat kind of shade, which makes it looks a little dull on my MAC NC30-35 skintone. (Gold mode is brighter and more gold imo.) Overall this is a lovely everyday shade, as it's not over the top shimmery/sparkly, which is one of my biggest issues with a lot of MAC pigments.

This loose pigment from MAC gives your eyes a sparkling shine and great shimmer. The more you apply, the more glamourfulll you'll look. Color pay off = Amazing. It's also great for the inner corner of your eyes, to open up your eyes a little more. Whenever I see this, i think of Cleopatra and/or Pyramides, cause gold = egypt. xD

I cannot say enough about how much I love this pigment. All of the pigments that came out with the overrich collection were stunning but, for me, this one stood out. The texture is super fine and very workable. This blends easily and I didn't experience ANY fallout like I have with countless other pigments. This is so smooth! You can put it on wet or dry, use it as an eyeshadow or highlighter--heck, I even mixed it with a clear nailpolish to paint my nails with! It's very versatile. I love gold in general and this is a beautiful 'antique' type of gold--not bright and showy but, subtle, yet noticeable at the same time. It makes a wonderful, neutral eyeshadow wash for daytime, or put a darker color in your crease for a night out. This is one of my few go-to eyeshadows when I just don't know what to do with myself (lol). Although the packaging is a bit of a turn-off (as it is for me with all MAC pigments) because it's so easy to knock it over and spill it everywhere, I will buy this when I run out. HG for sure!

I've had this pigment since its release and never reviewed it. BG piggy is a nice neutral to have because it seems to coordinate well with a variety of other colors. I like the pigmentation & consistency of this pigment; I find it applies neatly and quickly without excessive packing. I could use this just as a wash, and I love the way it looks in my inner corners! Blonde's Gold is not too white when it comes to highlighting, and I like the subtle golden sheen it has that instantly brightens my eyes. If you can find this on ebay for a fair price, I would say get it, especially if you are a "neutrals" gal!

I don't think I will go through this fast enough to say if I would repurchase it or not...but as the name states, this is Blonde's gold. Being a very blonde PPP, this was made for us.
It's a great neutral gold shade, not yellow golden. It looks very lovely with green smoke or sumptuous olive, or golden olive in the crease. It is a very pretty summer color for me. I can use it as a highlighter (with a fluffy brush) or as a lid color. It would also look lovely with mulch or sable too.
As like most MAC pigments, this product is very well pigmented. A little goes a long way. I have not experienced a lot fall out with this.
I have recommended this product to quite a few PPP girls.

This is my favorite highlighter now. My skin tone changes so much.Curious to see what it does when I get darker in the summer. On me-- it's an earthy- warm, shimmering gold; but if I swatch an area of skin that is pale, it's too light.
