MAC A Glimmer of Gold Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad ($44.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a warm-toned quad that features a gold, light copper, medium-dark copper, and warm taupe. I was disappointed that two of the shades were so, so similar to each other--if this was a palette of twenty eyeshadows, it would be easier to overlook, but when you only have four, it's completely unnecessary. The wear was surprising (note, I applied all four with a damp brush over bare eyelids), as three of the four shades wore fairly well for eight hours, while the darker copper shade had some fading at the eight-hour mark. I didn't notice any fall out during wear. The textures were soft but slightly powdery, and applying them dry worked best if I was applying over a good base, as they had a tough time sticking and adhering to bare skin or a more matte eyeshadow primer.
