*~Summer Gold~* - Coastal Scents Gel Liner in 24K

I recently ordered this gel liner from coastal scents and as usual it arrived super quick :D I just adore their service, prices and products :) hehe...Well so this is a gel liner in shade 24k and as you can see from the pics above, I do not intend to use this as a liner but rather as a eyeshadow base or an overall lid color!

I was looking for a dupe for Illamasqua's Solstice and wanted a gold shadow that would actually show up and hence was very tempted to try this. I have always noticed that gel liners are very pigmented and if you try to use them as shadows you will achieve amazing results.

Speaking about this liner, its pretty decent in quality and very creamy. It is quite pigmented too and I reckon it would not crease much as it is supposed to be a liner and hence will stay in place. However I always would put this over a paintpot or a primer.

Its good as a base for neutral eyeshadows and excellent to just wear on its own for a gold wash on your eyes without looking too made up. The unique thing about this is the color itself which is a very toned down gold. Its not a yellow gold, I would rather describe this as a 'true' gold and hence living up to its name! The texture is not metallic but just shimmery.

Although its not as amazing as solstice in terms of its metallic sheen and pigmentation, I would still recommend this to you guys as its unique in its own self. Especially for £4.23 you cannot go wrong with this for summer! ;)
