MAC Gilded Age is a very warm-toned, medium-dark brown with a metallic finish. It is a limited edition lipgloss that retails for $21.00 and contains 0.17 oz.
MAC Gilded Age Grand Illusion Liquid Lipcolour ($21.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a rich, coppery brown with warm, red undertones and lighter gold, copper, and bronze pearl. It had a high-shine, metallic finish that appeared lighter and darker as the light reflected off the shimmer, but it didn't see holographic to my eye. The consistency was smooth and easy to spread across the lips, and it didn't seem to emphasize my lip lines like some of the other shades have in this formula. It had opaque coverage that wore well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. The tingling sensation was noticeable for 20 minutes.
