Hi everyone! Here are some more swatches that I`ve had backlogged on my computer for ages. Since I only got into cosmetics a few years ago, I missed out on a lot of products that people used to use in tutorials and called favorites. Sometimes I get lucky and those products are repromoted, and other times they never come back.
This is one of the times I got really lucky because the product was brought back AND made permanent! The product I`m talking about is the `Gilt by Association` Mineralize Eyeshadow by MAC that came out several years ago in the Style Black collection in 2009. Actually, I was definitely buying makeup at that point, but I didn`t really know how to use it so I was starting small with drugstore brands and ignoring anything more expensive.
The tutorials I`ve seen using this eyeshadow made it look amazing, and I even scoured the internet for dupes afterwards. L`Oreal HiP duo in `Gilded` was the closest dupe, but even that is discontinued now. So when this was re-released recently (late last year?) I went to my closest MAC and snatched it up.
What this eyeshadow has been swatched next to/compared to is the `Golden Gaze` Mineralize Eyeshadow that came out in the Semi-Precious collection in 2011. Both are kind of a golden eyeshadow with a blackened base, but GBA is more glittery and the black base is more prominent, while GG is smoother and almost metallic or foiled.
Originally, it used to be that if you missed out on Gilt by Association you should pick up Golden Gaze. But now that GG is gone and GBA is permanent, if you missed out on either you can still get GBA. They provide more or less the same look on the eye, but GBA is a bit more glittery and black.
These Mineralize Eyeshadows are $22 and all of the shades from the original Style Black collection are available in the new packaging.
Thanks for reading!
