MAC Eyeshadow Gorgeous Gold Review & Swatches


MAC Eyeshadow Gorgeous Gold


I am here again with another gold eyeshadow review, really glad you liked the review for GOLDMINE eyeshadow and thank you all for all the lovely compliments. As mentioned in earlier posts, MAC has very limited gold eye shadows but the ones they have are worth buying for no brainers look and this is one such shade – GORGEOUS GOLD.

Size – 1.5 Gms, Price – 720/- INR, Available at MAC stores across India

Shade – Gorgeous Gold is described as Muted yellow – gold, it is pale yellow gold colour with hint of green in it , looks duo chrome in certain lighting but not apparent as other shades from MAC like CLUB or VEX which looks duo chrome in pan itself .

Texture – It is from Veluxe Pearl finish which is very soft, creamy and blends really well with any shade. I adore this finish and this colour in Veluxe pearl finish is must have shade.

Pigmentation – It is decently pigmented and needs a little layering but not an issue as the colour is beautiful and not at all powdery, so even if you layer it there is no fall out as such. But, I do wish a better pigmentation could have been added bonus.

Staying power – With primer they tend to stay good 7 plus hrs and show nicely too, but without primer this particular shade I find is little sheer and needs a lot of layering but with good primer it is

What I like about MAC Eyeshadow Gorgeous Gold:

  • I love the greenish yellow gold colour; it’s not bright and very easy to wear without any efforts.
  • The texture is super soft and creamy and blends well.
  • The staying power with primer is another highlight point of this shade.

What I don’t like about MAC Eyeshadow Gorgeous Gold:

  • I wish the pigmentation could have been little better if not great.

Ratings – 4/5

I love how the colour looks and can be used with so many colours without much effort , a little good pigmentation could have added one more point to this already gorgeous shade – gorgeous gold . If you want to buy your first MAC GOLD eye shadow then I would go with goldmine but if you love collecting gold eye shadows then this will definitely be a nice addition to your collection.
