Do you mean Gold Mode pigment? Or is there a Gold mode e/s too? Too many gold colors, yet they are all so different LOL.

I like the gorgeous gold, but it's more of a yellowish/greenish gold on me (I am NW25). It looks different on everyone so you should try it if you haven't on your skintone.

Fyrinnae Aztec Gold (slightly greenish cast when applied) and Genie Lamp (true gold) are my two favs.

the gold shades from the mediteranee or isolde eyeshadow duos from NARS, they are amazingly silky.

I really love this one from the body shop in gold.
it has a really beautiful irridescense to it.
Eye Shimmer: Eyeshadow & Eyeliner: Makeup - The Body Shop

From MAC in terms of pigments I love Blondes Gold and Jardin Aires (both LE).
I also like goldfinger from NARS.

Goldmine is great. Another fun Goldish is Old Gold MAC pigment, high color payoff with great tones!!!

Goldmine, gold stroke, and melon. Pigments are definitely best for gold because they have so much shimmer and sheen.

i've found a new love for amber lights. an orangey gold that looks stunning as a wash on the lid! great for summery looks.

and of course the amazing old gold pigment that i used today! has a wonderful greeny tint that flashes!

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

yellow gold pearl pigment from nyx is so lovely. it's like a more yellow version of mac's goldmine

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

It is more ambery/bronze than gold, but Amber Lights is my favourite eyeshadow colour in taht category. It has a great depth adn intensity to it that doesn't make it look trashy or tacky, but still retains a great metallic shine and a goldish vibe to it.

I'm pale and I really like Urban Decay's Half Baked.. it's a true gold and it comes out pretty bold on me (i'm NW 15 but I just started wearing NW when an MA tried it out on me.. I have worn NC 15 for years and I always liked Half Baked)

I've bought about Amber Light from MAC since I discovered it. I am NC40 and my NC45 friend LOVES it too!

Goldmine would be a LOT more obvious on your complexion.

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

Just throwing this out there, but a GREAT drug store brand gold I've tried was from the Black Radiance line. I don't know if anyone's ever heard of it, but some years ago - and by years, I mean a LOOOOONG time ago, maybe some 6 years or more - I was just randomly walking down the beauty isle of a local drug store. I came across Black Radiance's Eye Shadow Quartet in 8801 Desert Clay.

The colors are SOOOO pigmented! The gold is definitely one of the best gold's I've ever tried! And I believe they're only $3-$5!

(this is the only image I could find of the quartet - don't let this image full you, it seems like the colors aren't right, but the colors in person are VERY bright and extremely pigmented!)

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

I've swatched Urban Decay's Half Baked when I was in Sephora, and I think it is a gorgeous gold- not too yellow, dark, or light. Does anyone know of a MAC eyeshadow that is a dupe/very similar to UD's Half Baked?
post #199 of 220

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

I like urban decay's honey (deluxe e/s) - this shows up on me best and it's so pretty!
Gold mine is also gorgeous; I always use it over base light paint.
gorgeous gold is kinda meh on me.

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

dunno if this was mentioned...

but Bare Escentuals True Gold is exactly that. A true gold. its GORGEOUS!

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

Goldmine would be a great gold e/s to try out. I love it and it stays in my main 15 palette that I carry with me everywhere (especially when traveling) for every possible situation.

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

My favorite gold ever is Urban Decay Half Baked. It is such a rich gold color and it applies so smoothly! It's my HG gold shadow!

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

I like using Paint in Base Light (because it has a bit of a gold hue to it) as my my base. Then I use a combo of Old Gold Pigment and Goldmine . You may also want to try Henna if it is still out there...its a more subtle gold shadow.

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

The best gold eyeshadow that I've been able to find this season is Prestige's Golden Retriever. It's absolutely gorgeous... it's very rich and metallic looking. I love it!!

ITA! I thought I had well-pigmented golds until I got Half Baked ... now that is some serious gold action!

Re: Best Gold Eyeshadow? MAC & other brands

I have various golds in my collection, MAC and otherwise, but I always wind up reaching for Urban Decay Honey - I really like the yellow gold look.
