    Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

    I want it to look really silky and almost soft and creamy seamless looking one but i don't want it to be a cream texture. Also i don't want it to be full on tacky gold, i want a sophisticated one that would look good on my NC43 skin.

    I would say Bagatelle if you can still get hold of it.

    I love Bagatelle. It's worth looking for. I even bought backups of it because it's LE and I love it so much.

    Hmm..i've heard Goldbit is hard to apply, i get the feeling it's not a very smooth and silky looking eyeshadow?

    Was Bagatells LE? I always thought that colour was a green when people mentioned it for some reason!

    Are there any other golds? I don't want it to be a full on gold. I saw Woodwinked on someone which looked goldish and pretty? Would that be good?

    What about Gorgeous Gold... Bagatelle is more of a brown...not gold.

    Goldmine is kind of orange golden, but it could work for NC43

    Goldmine or Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow over Brassy Fluidline, maybe?
    I find that Brassy really makes the eyeshadow pop. Good luck!

    Gold E/S

    Whats everyones favourite gold eyeshadow.

    I loved Casino until i discovered Amber Lights, it goes on so well and is so versatile. its ironic how LE e/s take priority over perm e/s even when their not as good!

    any others?

    The ones I like are more yellowish gold e.g. Gorgeous Gold and Goldmine.

    I prefer Gorgeous Gold for a more &quot;yellow&quot; gold and Urban Decay's Half-Baked for a more true gold.

    Gorgeous Gold looks greenish on me... I don't have goldmine yet, but it's on my wishlist. I love Gold Dusk pigment!

    I just got Goldmine yesterday, and it's a new favorite. It is very gold gold, if you know what I mean. Loving it w/my blue eyes!!

    Goldmine is a good yellow-based pure gold. Gorgeous Gold is more green than gold, don't buy it until you try it.

    I am loving this gold e/s I bought from Shu Uemura.

    From MAC I like Woodwinked.

    Old Gold pigment is nice too but it's not a true gold, it's more like a golden lime green peach shade all rolled into one.

    Twillery, too bad it's LE, it's my favourite shadow EVER.
    And I hit pan yesterday :eek2:
    Due to lack of interest, tomorrow is cancelled.

    I just got my Golden Lemon Pigment yesterday and I love it! Such a gorgeous yellow gold shade!

    I'm not much into gold, so I haven't tried any of MAC's gold shadows.
    However, a really good shimmery pure gold shadow is Urban Decay's &quot;Twisted.&quot;
    It's discontinued, but you can probably get it on eBay. I like it because it looks pure gold, with no green, brown, yellow, or orange tones.
