NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches


NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow

NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow

NARS Goldfinger Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “24 karat gold shimmer.” It’s a pop of yellow gold with a metallic sheen. The texture is soft and smooth, which is exactly what you want with a metallic finish, so it really retains its reflective nature. MAC Goldmine is much darker, while Urban Decay Eldorado is very similar but the quality of Goldfinger is much, much better. Inglot #403 is similar but a touch darker. Make Up For Ever #10 is pretty close but a little more orange-based.

NARS Eyeshadows are described as “ultra pigmented, long-wearing, [and] crease-resistant” that can be applied wet or dry. I get around eight hours of wear before I notice subtle creasing with NARS’ eyeshadows, so I would still wear an eyeshadow primer if I wanted all-day wear. The packaging is slim and compact with matte black rubberized packaging that absorbs impact better than a harder plastic. There is a mirror inside the compact as well.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I prefer to review products individually, so each product can be rated on its own merits. I only review products lumped together if I have to.

hey honey …. I wanted to ask you one thing for a long long time … sorry my bad or ??
can you pls check MUFE link and see if you have written it correct … I mean in that post I guess ( i am not sure but i do think ..) no 10 and no 153 are exchanged …
I hope you get what I mean …
as you link that post quite often i thought will tell you here 😀 😀

coming back to this beauty …
its so awesome and would love to see it on your eyes … 😀 😀
still smitten by your purple look with MUFE ….
you were looking Gorgeous in that 😀 😀

I thought the exact opposite about the packaging. I don’t usually brake any of my makeup but I have with a few of my nars powders. One time I had a blush in my hand litteraly 12 inches off the ground, I dropped it and it broke into a million peices. I have dropped makeup from others brands down 2 flights of stairs and they were fine. The compacet just seems to absorb none of the impact.

I’ve dropped about 10 NARS products (for testing purposes) about 2-3 feet over tile and everything’s been intact 🙂 I wouldn’t emphasize such a point without testing it myself.

Christine I love this color! Thanks for letting us know about the sell I got some stuff I always wanted and the mini palatte night series! Very Happy 🙂 I loved your Muppet look buy the way!

Wow, this is gorgeous. Not at all what I expected from the pan picture. It looks like it would be very wearable for everyday. Awesome!

Also, your new avatar (comment pic) is really cute Christine! 🙂
