Incandescent Gold 002

Pat McGrath Incandescent Gold 002 Sublime Skin Highlighter ($60.00 for 0.42 oz.) is a pale white gold with muted, warm undertones and a fine, luminous pearl throughout. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out well without emphasizing my skin’s natural texture.

The powder was a gel-powder formula, so while it was denser and firmer to the touch, it “melted” once it was applied to bare skin. The trick is using a moderately-dense brush and/or heavier-handed approach to pick up product initially. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

I have this and I’m not sure that i would agree that it’s very warm. In the pan it’s seems quite unique in my collection. It has a cool base and I was worried that it would read ashy on me but it really is a neutral champagne-gold, and the ashiness that I feared didn’t materialize. That said, it was very expensive and I probably shouldn’t have bought it! (I would describe my skin tone as a fair neutral with very slightly pink undertones, if that helps)

It does look beautiful indeed and the formula sounds so nice. But I didn’t say it was “very warm” – just too warm for me. “champagne gold” is generally too warm for me. Vanilla Quartz seems just a hair cooler and that’s why it works on my skin tone.
