Tarte Pot of Gold Chrome Paint Shadow Pot ($22.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright pop of true, yellow gold with soft, warm undertones and a bright, metallic finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation when applied dry, and I found that on the lid, as I buffed and blended it out, it seemed to intensify a bit more. This shade did seem to be a little more pigmented more readily when used with a fingertip or a dampened brush, though I had little trouble using a dry brush to press and pat it into place. The texture was soft, smooth, and very blendable, which made it easy to work with. It lasted well for eight and a half hours on me.
