24-carat gold?

Supposedly each pot of this gold eye shadow contains 2 leaves of pure 24-carat gold. Ohkay, what ever does that mean.

It's a stunning creamy gold eye shadow introduced by Belmacz which is also an acclaimed jewellery house. I really like the clear plastic packaging, its cute and classy at the same time without being over the top. You get 5 grams of product in this pot and seeing how pigmented the product actually is, it should last a lifetime to be honest.



It's a pretty creamy product but not so creamy that you would leave a finger print inside. I find these to be better than the Liquid Metals that Illamasqua bought out which were too creamy and would smudge and crease in no time. This on the other hand dries to powdery finish and stays put until you remove it. It is highly pigmented but you can also build it up for intensity or sheer it down for casual wear.

It's quite a great product for weddings, parties or photo shoots and it pictures really well too. If you cant think of anything, a quick layer of this with thick black eye liner is all you need to complete your look.

Everything seems to be perfect except the price tag unfortunately. It retails for £26, which I personally find a bit too steep and would think a 100 times before spending on something like a gold eye shadow that I will hardly wear.

The eyeshadow looks amazing but i dont think i can justify spending £26 on it! My limit is £20 on a single shadow xD. X

I think that 24k gold is just crap. =.=
You put gold in a product that is going to be removed at the end of the day and go into the trashcan......?

24K gold- thats just a marketing gimmick imo. Its a really pretty gold any how. Shimmery without having glitter- too expensive (even if it actually contains 24k gold) :p

Rakhshanda said...

Get Gawjus! said...

@indianmakeupways - it sure would :)

@Lisa@Mehak - I would think its a marketing gimmick too!

Amina said...

omg!! thats steep, but looks almost identical to the laura mercier gold e/s ltd ed.

GREEDS said...

This is interesting! Glad to read that it photographs well, though. That's the biggest problem I have with eye shadow shades like this one (golds, champagnes, etc). Nice review.

That is nice but a bit too expensive for me. I'm sure you could get a bog standard gold coloured cream shadow. I thought that the only reason they put diamonds in skicare was because they did something to your skin? I can't see why they'd put it in makeup.

Get Gawjus! said...

@Rhamnousia - lol at 'diamonds in skincare'. I had no idea they did that! and the colour can easily be duped I found but the texture and staying power cannot.

resham said...

OMG....is all I can say! I am such a sucker for gold and as you said with a liner...its all thats needed to complete a gorgeous eye look...:)

26 pounds that's like 55 canadian dollars. NO THANKS. I can get a chanel foundation for that price.

but the color is gorgeous.

Get Gawjus! said...

@Adorable on your vanity - 26 quid for a chanel foundation? really? It's way pricey here :( Am gona get my Chanel when I visit your country :p

Adorable On Your Vanity said...

I got chanel's foundation at IGI airport (delhi) for 47 US dollars..which is about 52 cdn dollars...hmm so you should visit delhi for that :P

Adorable On Your Vanity said...
