5 Golden Eyeshadows for the Holidays

I could have easily given you a list of ten, being the gold fiend that I am, but I’ll keep it to the current five that really say holiday to me.  I think gold is a very versatile color.  It pairs well with warmer shades like bronze, rust, and berry, but it can also work with cooler-toned shades like violet, teal, and blue.  And if golds not your cup of tea, I have five of my favorite silvers for holiday coming right up.  Any interest in seeing some holiday blue shades? What other holiday-themed favorites would you like to see?

  1. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine — metallic yellow gold; not too yellow, not too orange
  2. OCC Triptych — rich, molten, honey gold
  3. Make Up For Ever #11 — dirty antique gold
  4. Inglot #430 — frosted, rich gold
  5. MAC Old Gold — tarnished gold

What’s your favorite holiday gold eyeshadow?

L'Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow
L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow

Sunny Days are Here!

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium yellowy gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It has a strong sunshine yellow coloring to it, so it’s warm, but it’s not orange. Tarina Tarantino Mr. Gold is similar, less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is very similar. Bare Escentuals Aspire is a bit lighter. Urban Decay Blunt is close.

Eternal Sunshine had excellent color payoff, and it applied smoothly and evenly both wet and dry.  When applied damp or wet, the metallic finish is more prominent, whereas when applied dry, it has more of a frosted look with less of a reflective sheen.  While these are advertised to wear for 24-hours, that’s a bit of a stretch, but I did put this shade to the test for sixteen hours.  It wore beautifully–no fading, no creasing.
