MAC Semi Precious - Golden Gaze Mineralize Eye Shadow!

By Thebeautyscoop
MAC Semi Precious - Golden Gaze Mineralize Eye Shadow!As soon as I saw Golden Gaze on Temptalia, I knew that it had to be mine. It’s a beautiful, blackened gold with an almost metallic shimmer running through it. This post will be pic-heavy as the shadow catches the light so differently with every movement that I just had to post more – it’s almost a duochrome to my eye.

MAC Semi Precious - Golden Gaze Mineralize Eye Shadow!The shadow is so pigmented, even when used dry – although I would say that my preference is to wear this wet as it makes the foiled effect look even more intense, and it also cuts down on the (quite heavy) fall-down from application.
I also found that application was easier when I used a sponge applicator to position the shadow where I wanted it (which also helped to minimise fall-down a little bit), and then used a brush to blend out. Obviously everybody has a different technique though, so you may find a better way to use it – feel free to comment if you do, I’m always open to new techniques and ideas!

I completely adore this eye shadow (I'm worried that my photography skills do not do it justice), and even Mr Beauty Scoop said he liked it – which is practically unheard of as he has little to no interest in make-up! I don’t think I have anything remotely similar in my make-up collection, nor can I think of anything that immediately jumps to mind when I think of potential dupes.
I have a feeling that this shade may be one of the more popular shades and could be one of the first to sell out, since it seems so unique, more pigmented, and with a better formula than some of the other hues in the Semi-Precious collection.
It’s available from the MAC website, plus the usual MAC outlets for £16.
