Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium neutral Olive
Most used gold eyeshadow? Urban Decay, Half baked (the discounted version). It’s the perfect, not too yellow or bright, gold for my skin.
Most used gold highlighter? Amrezy x ABH
Least used gold eyeshadow? Gold Standard, closely followed by Pat. There are just too many to choose from so I end up leaving them all alone.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Most used gold eyeshadow? MAC Goldbit, Anastasia Legend or UD Dothraki. There are also a few lovelies in some older UD larger palettes
Most used gold highlighter? Face highlighter? I tend not to use gold highlighters. UD Sin Afterglow Highlighter is probably the most “gold” toned highlighter I own.
Least used gold eyeshadow? I can’t really think of one!

Your skin tone/colouring: Light medium, yellow undertones. Dark brown hair & eyes.

Most used gold eyeshadow? Natasha Denona Silk – I have two, one in the Bronze palette and one as a freebie sample pan from Sephora.

Most used gold highlighter? Lately, BPerfect Polar Vortex in 32F – stunning!

Least used gold eyeshadow? Oooooh, tricky one… Probably Dwollahs from the ABH Jackie Aina palette, (which is FABULOUS) btu I think I’ve only used that particular shade once!

Most used gold eyeshadow? ABH Primavera (Modern Renaissance)

Most used gold highlighter? Becca Moonstone

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Most used gold eyeshadow? Probably Gold Nectar by PMG

Most used gold highlighter? Nope, don’t use a highlighter and a gold shade would not suit my colouring.

Least used gold eyeshadow? I am wracking my brain to think of a gold eyeshadow that I don’t use in my stash. I know I don’t particularly like overly yellowy golds, and I don’t own any of those.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fenty 120

Most used gold eyeshadow? Right now it is Cyber Bronze from the PMG Bronze Borealis quad which shows up on me as a bronzey gold. I can rarely wear straight gold. Whisper from Lorac Noir is a pink gold favorite.

Most used gold highlighter? The highlighter from the Anastasia Italian Summer Face Trio

Least used gold eyeshadow? There is a straight gold in the MTHRSHP Mega palette that looks awful on me. Otherwise it is just a matter of liking the Bronze Borealis one so well.

Your skin tone/coloring: ale, cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
Most used gold eyeshadow? I’m not sure I use gold eyeshadow often enough to think quickly on this question. Looking through photos of the palettes I own, maybe BH Aquarius shimmer or KVD Egypt?
Most used gold highlighter? NARS Satellite of Love highlighting blush (discontinued, of course).
Least used gold eyeshadow? Natasha Denona Grin-Circo Loco’s a newer palette of mine and I’ve used it about 11 times in the 4 months that I’ve owned it, but so far Grin has only come up in 1 of those looks.

Your skin tone/coloring: Above. grey-green eyes, dark brown hair
Most used gold eyeshadow? I like the ones in the old Naked and Naked 2 palettes by UD, and MAC some MAC Ones, can’t recall the names of any of them.
Most used gold highlighter? Is The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer a gold? If so that one, it’s as gold as I go with HL’s
Least used gold eyeshadow? All the ones in the PMG palettes I have.
