I have had this eyeliner for absolutely ages, in fact I brought it when I got the pitch black version so that was back in January..whoopsie! It has been sitting in my drawer for so long waiting to be used. As the nib is so bright, I thought it was a bit bold for everyday and have been waiting for an occasion to use it. When I swatched it, it wasn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be and tended to have more of a muted tone.
As with Pitch Black, I really like the style of this but do tend to use it more straight on than at an angle like they should be. I think this is just down to habit though, as its easier to get a flick this way.
The colour is nowhere near as bold as I first thought, more of a muted gold which turns to a very pale shimmer in some lights. You really need to push hard or layer this up to get even a slight hint of colour which is a bit hard especially if you are using it sideways. This disappointed me slightly, especially as I had such high hopes after using the black version and finding how pigmented it was.
I have been using it more as an eyeshadow, colouring in the lid and then layering on top and I found for that it works perfectly, so all is not lost. I just feel if you are looking for quite a bright gold eyeliner though, you may be slightly disappointed. ♥
