Challenge: A Toast To Magnolia

In the comments section a couple of posts ago, my lovely friend and reader, Magnolia, mentioned how pretty champagne golds can be. I happen to agree with her 100% and, knowing what a MAC girl she is, thought I'd dig up as many of the company's different champagne gold options as I could for dear Mags. Here's what I came up with. Enjoy!

The traditional choice for color, and definitely the easiest to apply. Easily brused or smudged onto the eyes for looks that vary from polished to smokey.

Clockwise From Top Left: 
Brule: soft creamy-beige, satin finish
Ricepaper: peachy gold with shimmer, frost finish
Motif: gold peach with pink pearl, frost finish

This is a traditional eyeshadow, but with a rocker-chic metallic finish.

Dalliance: light champagne

*From here on out, nothing is limited to the eye area. Have fun playing around with these beauties!*

Pigment ($19.50 each)

Pigment is a little trickier than traditional eyeshadow, but the color pay-off is well worth the extra effort. You can use a brush, sponge or fingers, but remember--a little dab'll do ya. This stuff is potent!

Melon: soft bright golden peach

Paint Pot ($16.50 each)

This is a cream shadow that dries to a long-lasting, powder finish. Can be worn alone or as a base for traditional shadows. Brush, sponge, or fingertip application.

Bare Study: soft beige with gold pearl, frost finish

Paints ($16.50 each)

High pigment concentration in a pearly cream. Squeeze tube packaging. Can be worn alone or as a base for traditional shadows. Brush, sponge, or fingertip application.

Bare Canvas: champagne with shimmer

These are colors that look amazing with Summer tans...or without! Hope this helps anyone in search of a great neutral. Happy shopping!
