What’s Your Favorite Holiday Gold?

L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a metallic, yellow gold. There’s a slightly subdued quality to the overall color–by a little brown–that keeps it from being a yellow/orange kind of gold. This is why it’s not the same as L’Oreal’s Eternal Sunshine,, though if you rarely wear gold, one will do; or, if you find that Eternal Sunshine turns orange-y, you might prefer Gold Imperial. Chanel Apprence is browner. Urban Decay Blitz is very similar–less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is yellower.

If you love sparkling, shimmering, and high-shine finishes, Gold Imperial is exactly that. It’s really a dead-on holiday kind of finish; all glitz and glam.  One of the best things about this product is that for as sparkly as it is, I didn’t have problems with fall out.  It applies mostly opaque, and after twelve hours of wear, I didn’t spot any creasing or fading–and that was on its lonesome (no primer).   Because of its high-frost, high-shine finish, it can emphasize any imperfections on the skin where you apply it, including dry areas and lines.
