MAC Patina Eyeshadow ($6.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a "taupe brown with golden pearl [with a Frost finish]." It's a medium-dark, more antique-y gold with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable, while the color payoff was fully opaque. I remember loving the dimension of this one many years ago, and it is interesting that it remains harder to dupe because it is muted, browner, but still warmer than most taupes (but cooler than most golds). It wore well for eight and a half hours before creasing slightly. YSL Golden Glow #4 (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Persona Bombshell (PiP, ) is darker (90% similar). Tarte Go for the Gold (LE, ) is warmer (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Hollyhock (DC, ) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Clarins Garden Escape #6 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Burberry Gold #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Natasha Denona Polaris (116K) (PiP, ) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). MAC Golden Touch (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Guerlain Shalimar (Bottom) (LE, ) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). Rouge Bunny Rouge Bohemian Waxwing (P, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). NARS Oaxaca (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
