It is a bright, true gold that applies super pigmented in just one swipe. I like using this on the waterline to brighten up warm smokey eyes and add some sparkle. Gold will compliment any eye color and this pencil really adds something special.
I have spoken about the L’Oreal Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter as my favorite rose gold highlighter for the waterline, but this Urban Decay eyeliner has WAY better staying power. While these pencils are $20 and much more expensive than the L’Oreal version, the lasting power is worth the splurge.
Instead of using the typical black or nude on the waterline, a bright gold is fresh for fall and worth a try.
The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock was my starting point. I absolutely love the sparkly and sophisticated look it gives to the eyes with just a simple swipe. (Check out my in depth review here.) I placed Misty Rock all over the lid and along the lower lash line and blended it out with Limit from the Naked 3 Palette in the crease. Limit and Nooner are great transition shades from this palette which I reviewed as well.
To stay consistent with the purple theme I went with Sin blush from Nars. The dark purple color may seem intimidating for a blush shade, but it’s actually very wearable as I explain here.
