I'd heard about this. It's a lovely colour, but I don't think that we'll be able to he it here in Canada. I think it's supposed to be a teaser for a forthcoming makeup line, but I'm not sure how soon that will happen.

I wear gold on my eyes a lot when we are performing. I just got a gold eye shadow crayon and gold liquid eye liner from NYX, certainly not in McGrath's class, of course. McGrath's website says they'll make more, and it's something i would wear...

The drop down menu seemed global and I'm in Canada. I haven't had Fedex confirmation yet, but no cancellation either.

The decanting report: that is a whole lot 'o sequins, as you can see. My cat found a few stray ones and we thought, oh, she can play with those. Until she gobbled them up. The expression on her face was, "Got any red ones?"

The pigment itself literally glows in the container. What you see on my finger is the lightest of light swipes against the surface. Dry. When I blended it out with my finger, it pretty much turns into a shimmer with some tiny particles. Have not tried it yet with a brush. I know she suggests breaking it with the spatula to mix a cream, and I want to try it in that format, but it is going to hurt me to mar the surface of this product. (My husband could care less about makeup, but he paints, and even he was wowed by this, and by the presentation).

In my opinion, best use of marketing money EVER to launch a brand. I am sure she made no money on this, but it's got huge buzz and when her line launches, it will have instant attention globally. I think we are looking at her marketing budget to launch the line and it was money very well spent.

I used a small flat brush and once the pigment was on my hand, wet the brush and blended. It's a really gorgeous gold glow. If this is part of her eventual line it will be stunning on women of color.

My pleasure. I have one showing the nice sheen it gives when blended with a damp brush. Will try to post it later. ETA: the pic of it blended out, below. Want to emphasize I used a tiny amount on the brush first, dry, before I blended. It would be much more intense with a little bit more product, but I just wanted to see what it could look like sheer.

LOL @ your cat! What do the sequins do? I love what she's done with this and I'm excited to see what else she has in store!

The sequins are just to reinforce the gold theme in the packaging. The plastic bag everything came in was heat sealed, with sequins acting as the packing protection for the items. When I have a chance, I will try to use the pigment with the mixing medium to get some really yummy gold cream going. Hope I can achieve that without breaking it! I'm not OCD about things like that but damn, that product is so pretty as it is, I hate to destroy it. Even in the interest of makeup magic - LOL!

LOL OK! I was like "What are they for? Do they melt? I want to melt them and put them on my face!" LOL!
I sooo want to use it under my foundation and as eyeliner!

So I took the plunge and shaved off a small amount with the spatula - it is very soft and easy to control, actually. Mixed it with probably too much of the Mehron, but this is what I got. It is STUNNING. The photo doesn't begin to capture how this looks on skin. I also put it on my lips just cuz ... could not get a shot really in focus and it's applied with equal opacity to upper and lower lip. That didn't really come through.in the photo, but you get the idea. Now I wish I had the courage to wear it out. Gold lips forever! LOL

Soooo amazingly stunning. Maybe you can dab a little in the centre of your lip over a red lipstick for the holidays. I think that would be really pretty. I just can't get over how intense it is!
