MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base

MAC Golden Age Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “metallic antique bronze.” It’s a shimmering, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, pearly shimmer-sheen finish. Unless heavily layered, it had a much more subdued sheen than overtly shimmery. On eyes, it lasted for five hours before creasing, and on cheeks, it lasted for six and a half hours before migrating noticeably. The texture is creamy, highly emollient, and never fully sets, so it retains a dewier finish overall. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage, as described. There was something about the base color that seemed harder to even out on the skin, though. This shade did include a warning that it is “not for use in the lip area” (Cream Colour Bases are multi-tasking products). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Candyman (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Casino (P, $36.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Summer Glow (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). NARS Laguna (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Sepia Cream Colour Base ($23.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “dirty chocolate-brown.” It’s a muted, dark taupe brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a dewy sheen. It had semi-sheer, buildable color payoff with a lightweight, emollient texture that never fully dries down, so it has a wetter finish on the skin but doesn’t look greasy. On eyes, this lasted for five and a half hours, and on cheeks (I used it as a contour), it lasted for six and a half hours. Tarte Contour Deep (Tarteist) (LE) is lighter, more muted, less glossy (90% similar). Kat Von D Subconscious (P) is less glossy (90% similar). LORAC Deep Contour (P) is less glossy (90% similar). NYX Hollow (P, $5.00) is warmer, less glossy (90% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Medium (P) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Coffee Walnut (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Medium (P, $44.00) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). LORAC Medium Contour (P) is lighter, less glossy (85% similar). Smashbox Contour (P) is lighter, cooler, less glossy (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
