Let's Gold

Make Up For Ever Let’s Gold 18-Pan Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00 for 0.54 oz.) is a subtle, neutral palette with a mix of shimmers and mattes across browns, greens, and coppers. If you’re familiar with the Artist Color formula, forget about it because this palette is nothing like those and isn’t advertised similarly at all — if you go in expecting the pigmentation and quality associated with Make Up For Ever eyeshadows over the last decade, you’ll be disappointed. The formula in a the palette is supposed to have “buildable payoff and blendability” that can create “natural to high-impact” looks.

For me, a lot of the shades ran together in practice as several didn’t build up, and the shimmers often lost a lot of sheen/shimmer applied that they were was less and less chance at achieving depth. There’s no “high-impact” out of this palette; I tried five looks, and they were terrible; the one posted was the best I could get after spending 45 minutes to try and build up and achieve depth for ONE eye (I normally spend 10-15 minutes per eye) and using the “better” shades in the palette.

The majority of the shades were more medium to semi-opaque with denser, stiffer textures that were more sensitive to oil build-up as half of my shades hardened after two uses and had to be scraped off to use again. The mattes tended to be more pigmented and a little softer, while some of the shimmers were firmer, thin, and hard to build up or blend out with brushes and only usable with fingertips. I wouldn’t call the formula buildable myself as it was more all over the place with some shades that were true-to-pan in color, some that looked way lighter, some that were easy to use, and others that were not worth using again. Some of the eyeshadows would clump up or bunch up on my lid, which resulted in patchy application, fallout, and a lack of buildable coverage. The wear was between six and seven hours for most shades.

Pure

Pure is a soft, yellowy beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, but it was more powdery, so it sheered out as soon as I applied it. The consistency was soft and silky to the touch, but again, that powderiness made it prone to fallout and hard to keep opaque (or build it back up). It stayed on nicely for five hours on me before fading noticeably.

Mine

Mine is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage, but it always looked patchy as parts of the powder darkened more than others on my skin. This shade developed a hard crust over the top of the pan within two uses that had to be rubbed off with a rough, paper towel. The color was difficult to apply evenly and to blend out evenly along the edges. It lasted for six and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Digger

Digger is a light-medium olive green with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation–not buildable coverage–that applied fairly well with just a smidgen of fallout when initially applied. The texture was smooth, firm without being stiff, and easy enough to use. It wore well for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

Soil

Soil is a muted, light-medium orange with warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, silky, and smooth, but it was on the more powdery side. It was fairly pigmented, but in practice, it ended up sheering out almost as soon as I applied it, so the real coverage was more semi-sheer and only a little buildable. It stayed on decently for five and a half hours before I noticed fading.

Wealthy

Wealthy is a muted, medium-dark copper with warm undertones and a matte finish. The eyeshadow had opaque pigmentation in a single layer (not buildable!) with a smooth, velvety texture that felt firmer in the pan but wasn’t stiff to work with. It might have been the best of a very disappointing experience but still a far cry from what I’ve experienced from Make Up For Ever in the past. It lasted for six hours on me before there was visible fading.

Lavish

Lavish is a muted, medium plum with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was thinner and appeared dry applied to my lid (emphasized my lid texture a bit), it blended out without much effort. It wore well for five and a half hours before fading noticeably on my skin.

Hotshot

Hotshot is a soft gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that adhered decently but had a bit of fallout. When I tried to build up the coverage, the product lifted and clumped together and created a patchy result. The consistency was denser, more firmly-pressed in the pan, but it was blendable along the edges without too much work. It wore nicely for six hours on me before fading a bit.

Famed

Famed is a medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones. It had semi-sheer coverage that did not build up well, as the more I tried to apply, the clumpier and patchier the application appeared. The texture was drier, firm, and thin, which showed on my lid. It lasted for five hours on me before fading noticeably.

Bullion

Bullion is a light green with strong,w arm undertones and a satin sheen. It appeared a few shades lighter than the pan color, was sheer, did not build up, and was hard to apply evenly to the lid as it didn’t adhere well without primer. The texture was smooth to the touch but firmer and thinner with so-so blendability. The eyeshadow had faded noticeably by the sixth hour of wear from what I could tell as it got lost on my skin tone more so than other shades.

Trophy

Trophy is a medium-dark gold with strong, warm orange undertones and a frosted finish. It had sheer coverage, which did not build up, and it applied poorly with a patchy application and did not blend out well. The texture was dry, thin, and stiff to work with. It lasted for four hours at best.

Smelted

Smelted is a medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that did not not build up well, as it bunched up together and looked patchier when I used a second layer. The consistency was drier, thin, and harder to pick up evenly with a brush, and it absorbed oil very readily, which resulted in hard pan within two uses. This shade stayed on well for six hours on me before fading a bit.

Jewelry

Jewelry is a pale pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer coverage and did not build up. Worth noting, it appeared much, much lighter applied than it did in the pan. The texture was drier, thin, and did not apply evenly on my skin. The only reason it didn’t look as bad as all that sounded was that it was close enough to my skin tone that it was hard to see all those issues. From what I could tell, it lasted for five hours at best.

Make Up For Ever Precious Radiant Shadow

Precious

Precious is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had medium color coverage in a single layer, which built up to semi-opaque coverage; if I tried a third layer, it started to clump up on itself and lift the product off of my lid. The texture felt smooth to the touch but was thinner overall, and it was prone to hardening after two to three uses. It stayed on well for five and a half hours before fading on me.

Fortune

Fortune is a soft brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, which was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. This shade hardened after two uses, so I had to scrape off the top layer using a paper towel in order to keep using it. I had to do this every 2-4 uses, depending on how much of it I used. I have normal-to-dry lids, and I do not use a primer, but this is unusual behavior of powder eyeshadows in my experience. The color applied evenly and blended out without much effort. It lasted well for six and a half hours on me before I noticed fading.

Treasure

Treasure is a medium-dark green with warm, olive undertones and a frosted finish. The color payoff was opaque in a single layer, though it appeared lighter and had less depth than it did in the pan. The texture was drier, thin, and stiffer in the pan, so I had to jab my brush at the surface to get an even amount of product onto the brush for application. It wore well for six hours on me before fading noticeably.

Glorious

Glorious is a medium-dark, reddish-brown withw arm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had nearly opaque color payoff that adhered somewhat evenly to bare skin, but I had to be careful to only blend the edges or else the color seemed to sheer out. The texture was soft enough to pick up well with a brush and did not have fallout. It stayed on well for seven hours before fading noticeably.

Igneous

Igneous is a medium orange with warm, golden-orange pearl. It was more satin than metallic, and it almost read semi-matte depending on how terribly the application went. The texture was very thin, smooth to the touch, but difficult to pick up with a brush and had a tendency to harden after two uses. The eyeshadow had semi-sheer color payoff that built up to medium coverage, but if I tried to do more than two, thin layers, it bunched up and became patchy. It lasted for five and a half hours on me.

Molten

Molten is a soft coral with warm, orange undertones and pink shimmer. It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied unevenly and was difficult to build up with half of it disappearing and the rest clumping together in a delightful, texture-emphasizing mess. The texture was drier, thin but didn’t actually suggest it was going to be such an abomination on my skin from how it felt alone. This shade wore well for five hours before fading noticeably on me.

That’s what I thought too, the first time I saw an image of it. It doesn’t look like something from MUFE, it has a very drugstore look to it. Like I’d expect to see this for $15-20 at Target around the holiday time, maybe with a NYE-themed name.

Oh my but this is BAD. I saw the palette on Sephora’s website last week and wasn’t crazy for the colours…again, too much orange-y warm – but a few of the shades looked nice (Treasure, for example, and Precious, Bullion and a few others) but this is SO BAD that I’ll use my dupes of the shades I like and save myself a packet and a lot of frustration

Absolutely appalling and atrocious lack of quality for a brand that was so well known for their high quality eyeshadow formula. Another major brand in need of a swift kick in the buttocks. 👢💥

Just throw the whole palette away … 😩🤷🏻‍♀️ Ugh …. this is more than disappointing for MUFE … I wasn’t interested in this palette either way

Yeah, I definitely want to just write an overview and skip the shade-by-shade portion of the program when it comes to some of these – especially with 18 shades! 😉

Christine, Thank you for saving me the money I would have spent for the palette. It’s definitely disappointing from a brand that is known to produce very good eyeshadows. You’ve just proven once again that it pays to wait for your reviews.

So true, I have this thought every time something comes out that I was interested in, but the reviews are awful. I think I’ve saved myself a lot of disappointment by reading Christine’s reviews.

“Olives in Mud” … too funny!!

What’s going on with all of these bad palettes lately? I am surprised MUFE would release such garbage.

Yeah, when even your best efforts to try to get something out of an F rated palette have you naming it “Olives In Mud”! 🤣🤣🤣

OMG – I am shocked that MUFE put out such a shoddy effort! Where has their integrity gone? I’d much rather have a few stellar eyeshadow singles from SG, at a much cheaper price and far better quality than this rubbish. What a lot of time you wasted on this palette Christine.
Another palette to hit the most disappointing list for the end of the year.

I misread the title and thought this was from Makeup Revolution and was surprised they put out such a crummy product. Imagine my amazement that this was MUFE instead.

Wow, an F for MUFE shadows. Sad, very sad, they’ve sold out. Thanks for the review, I was kind of drawn to this palette, but crossing off my wishlist

Ouch!
Not all that many years ago I remember you reviewing MUFE single eye shadows, the ones they redid though they shouldn’t have. Then MUFE was doing great products, and now this!?!?!
I feel sorry for those who doesn’t come here to read reviews, those who doesn’t even google the product they are eyeing and come home with a palette like this one.
It might be hard to do in depth reviews on products like this, but this is when it’s needed the most.
Thank you for doing your job so well, Christine, and for saving us our hare earned money, and finally for always being honest.

Yikes! What is going on MUFE!? It seems like they’re trying to hard to keep up with the Joneses that they’re completely missing the mark.

What a surprising disappointment! My classic, old-formula MUFE eyeshadow singles are some of the best eyeshadows I own, and the “nudes you need” palette is also one of the best and well-loved I own. I will never understand why companies feel the need to fix what isn’t broken – especially if the original product is fantastic. MUFE had such a reputation (at least for me) of consistent quality and innovative colors, which has all but disappeared in the last few years. Christine – any insight into why they changed the eyeshadow formula?

Agreed! I still really enjoy my “Nudes You Need” palette for the shimmers, and sometimes pull out my Artist Vol 3 Floral palette for the bright shades. I second this question for Christine — did the brand give any explanation for why they changed the Artist color formula?

Yikes! Seems like brands are really just pushing products instead of putting thought into them this year. I know that they’ve been doing this for a long time, but seems like there is no thought about quality as there have been multiple F’s recently.

Makeup Forever is one of the few brands that I’ll readily justify the price for. But the more I think about it… the current eyeshadow… isn’t that good… and the current foundations.., aren’t that good… and their brushes, albeit inconsistent… aren’t that good. I think they’re surviving off their name.

Well that’s sad. I love the MUFE shadows that I own – I hope they don’t keep going in this direction!

I had a weird feeling this would suck, just from the picture of the palette. I’m really sad to see MUFE go this far downhill. Before the formula change, they were my #1 favorite for eyeshadows. 🙁

I want to thank you for still doing what you do. A lot of blogs I read when I picked up yours are defunct now, but this is tiny drop in the bucket of reasons why I still lurk here, still hold off pulling the trigger on things I suspect you’ll get a hold of, and prefer you to YouTube et al.
Thank you.
It’s so funny [sad] that I just bought some Sydney Grace, and used this site extensively for my dithering before pulling the trigger, while at the same time revisiting the MUFE older trios that I have and lamenting how their policy of “if it ain’t broke, break it,” has left some many of us flocking elsewhere.

My pleasure! 🙂 It is, unfortunately, getting harder and harder for a lot of bloggers to make enough money for it to be sustainable as a part-time or full-time job.

I hope you really enjoy the Sydney Grace eyeshadows!

I 100% agree with the “F”. I purchased this before reading any reviews and returned it within a few days. The shades look pretty enough, but the formula is not what you’d expect from MUF. Every shade, including the shimmers, are powdery and look dull. They apply patchy and don’t blend for anything, and the colors don’t look the same on the eye as they do in the palette. So disappointed in MUF and I’m not sure how this low quality palette made it onto store shelves.

I remember when MUFE eye shadows were among the best. And I purchased a whole bunch of their discontinued discounted singles of the old formula and am very happy I did. This palette struck me as strange from the get-go. For one thing, in the year when Natasha Denona did a highly successful Gold palette to call this odd assortment of semi-repetitive colors “gold” was an odd choice. I was looking at this palette at Sephora a few days back and puzzled to see yet another warm neutral palette, all in the mid tones. It was like taking a color range that has already been done to death– and making it worse on both a color level and on a formula level. At the same Sephora, Surratt is no longer on the shelves, which was a disappointment. Not a perfect brand but very innovative with a lot of interesting products. I’ve built my Surratt collection at Rouge sales over the years. I think it must be hard for brands to keep up the quality and stay in business. Thank you, Christine for going to all of the trouble.

I have bought quite a few Makeup Forever eyeshadow palettes, and never liked any of them near as much as I enjoy the single shadows before they reformulated them. Most of the shadows in the palettes have gotten hard pan and just applied horribly. The singles I have, I absolutely adore. This is just a boring and pitiful release.

Do you think you could of just got a bad palette or have others given bad reviews also? I know I have read many reviews for palettes and some were good and some were bad because of a defect in a certain batch of palettes. Maybe you should contact MUA about it. It is a shame because for $45, you should get a great quality palette. Thanks so much for the wonderful, time consuming reviews you give. So VERY appreciated!

If there’s a known defect, the brand should acknowledge the issue and proactively get in touch with customers. If they have not, I wouldn’t assume there’s an issue of a “bad batch” (which I think is more myth than anything else based on talking to brands and those involved in manufacturing over the years!). I ordered when it launched, not years later when ingredient availability or how or where it is manufactured may have had to change, and it’s most likely that they ordered a large quantity and produced it in the same time frame in order to have enough supply for the launch. It’s more likely that people have different expectations, want different things out of their products, etc.

For example, I don’t use primer and I judge products based on the claims they make, so someone who wears primer and never tries it without may not experience what I experienced. In some products, this might take a disappointing experience to a decent one!

I don’t understand how MUFE could do this to customers, it makes me not trust the brand any more. I have I think 9 of their old formula – singles, and they remain spectacular. They’ve really become lost. A shame. And shameful to put out this palette!

This is so weird cuz Tati loves this palette. I saw her review on it and went to check out your review. And turns out Christine isn’t liking it. Sad, cause I trust both of your reviews. The colors are so everyday wearable with a pop of change like the khakis and muted purple. But the swatches really aren’t that great, 喔feel like this is a palette for a light wash of color. maybe for workplaces that don’t allow bright colors, or when u are in a rush and don’t have time to slowly apply eyeshadow.

I didn’t care for the color scheme, but I almost balked when I saw the rating! Wow! CAn’t imagine such a rating for MUFE, but then like MAC they seem to be going in a very different direction these past five or so years.
