5 Must-Have Yellow/Gold MAC Eyeshadows

About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series

A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.

Chrome Yellow eyeshadow is about as yellow as they come. Matte in texture, smooth in finish, Chrome Yellow has been a long-time favorite for those who can make it work.

Goldmine eyeshadow is a deliciously true-gold color. It’s shimmery and frosty and everything I think gold should be. I would say this gold runs slightly orange over yellow, though. I still think it’s a pretty dead-on gold replication.

Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow is a green-cast gold that works really well with green, teals, and blues. It’s a nice way to lighten those shades or accent them.
