Well, in this instance, Rose Gold and Old Gold!
I have a few Mac Pigment Powders but not the plain Gold. I do however have Rose Gold and Old Gold which are 2 beautiful colours.
Pigment powders are a concentrate of colour but can be easily blended to provide a subtle colour (I use the Tan colour pigment to in my crease quite often as it blends beautifully), or they can be used to create a real intense colour either with a wet brush or on top of a white base. Using a wet brush will give more of a foiled effect.
Applied with an eyeshadow brush is quite subtle, with a brush dampened with Mac Fix + gives a much more intense colour.
Rose gold is slightly more bronze than the old gold which I think has a slight green/yellow hue to it. Rose gold can be used again for a wash of colour (which can be blended out even more than I have on my arm in that photo) or with a damp brush for the foiled effect.
Using a white base also helps colours to pop, and the NYX base in white is great at adhering powder to the eyelid. Some of Mac’s pigment powders have slightly different looks in different lights which is why the Old Gold on the upper part of the photo in this case seems to show more of the yellow/green hue I mentioned compared to the photo above. Blue/Brown is another fun colour to play with as again, the colour looks blue, brown and even red in some lights.
I have been asked to write a blog on the Mac Pigment powders so I will do this soon as I have other stunning colours but would like to include some photos of looks you can create so watch this space.
