Which is the best gold eyeshadow for me?
1.Burberry Sheer Gold Eye Colour CreamIf you want a gold eyeshadow that has a slight sparkle you will love Burberry's Sheer Gold Eye Colour Cream. The metallic shade is gorgeously luminous and leaves a beautiful wash of golden colour over the lids, which can be built-up if you want a more intensified shade. Thanks to its cream formulation, the product feels cushion-like in the pan and blends into the skin seamlessly for an easy and simple application.
2.Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye ShadowOne of the bestselling eyeshadows of all time, Stila's Glitter and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow applies like a metallic foil and is perfect if you want a bolder eye makeup look this party season. Formulated with a blend of glitter and pearl particles, the shadow itself is super rich in colour and dries down to a foil-like finish, which ensures it doesn't budge all day.
3.Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream ShadowIf you suffer from oily lids and want an eyeshadow which won't budge, you will love Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Cream Shadow. It not only has 12-hours of wear upon application, the shadow doesn't fade throughout the day. We love the shade Sandy Gold, which adds a gorgeous wash of colour to the lids without looking over the top metallic.
4.MAC DazzleshadowFor a gorgeous pop of gold this festive season, choose MAC's Dazzleshadow. A highly-glittery and pigmented formula, the shadow is formulated with a blend of richly-coloured pigments, which easily adhere to the eyelids to ensure minimal fallout and that the shadow stays in place all day long. The cream-to-power texture also makes it super easy to apply, even with fingertips.
5.NYX Professional Makeup Palette in Warm NeutralsIf you want a selection of gold eyeshadows you can mix and match, you will love the NYX Professional Makeup Warm Neutrals Palette. Containing 16 shades, all in different warm and golden tones, the shadows are perfect for either blending together or wearing individually to create a unique look. Coming in a variety of finishes, from satin to shimmer and metallic, this is one of our bestselling eyeshadow palettes of all time.
6.Bourjois Taupissime Quad EyeshadowBourjois's Taupissime Quad Eyeshadow contains 4 beautifully golden shadows, which can be worn together or used individually for a gorgeously festive finish. We love the centre colour as it's a pure and glittery golden shade, which when used with a wet fingertip imparts a foil-like finish onto the lids.
7.Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stellar EyeshadowThe Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stellar Eyeshadow comes in the perfect golden hue for creating a gorgeously festive eye makeup look for the party season. The gel-like texture melts into the skin upon application, and transforms into a silky powder to minimise fallout and stay in place all day without budging, creasing or fading. We love to apply with both a brush and fingers as it's so easy to work with. Plus, it can be worn alone or layered over your favourite shadow for a metallic finish.
8.Illamasqua Iconic Chromes in Avant-GardeIllamasqua's Iconic Chrome Eyeshadow in shade Avant-Garde is the perfect golden eyeshadow for the party season. The unique cream to powder formulation glides onto the lids effortlessly for a beautiful and long-lasting multi-dimensional effect. They are great for wearing individually or layering over your favourite eyeshadow for a bold injection of shimmer.
9.Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono Eye ShadowThe Yves Saint Laurent Couture Mono Eye Shadow in shade 12 is the perfect gold eyeshadow for the festive season. The silky, crease-proof formulation melts into the skin upon application and leaves a beautiful golden wash of colour over the lids. We love to wear this over our favourite shadow as it gives a beautiful luminescent finish, which we haven't found in any other shadow.
10.By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eye ShadowPerfect for use while travelling or if you don't have a mirror, the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Eye Shadow comes in a crayon formulation, which can be drawn and gently smudged to create a simply yet super effective eye makeup look. We love the shade Ombre Mercure, which imparts a champagne-like golden hue to the lids.
