Gorgeous Gold is a shade whose name doesn’t exactly describe what color it truly is. While it is yellow in color, if you look closely it has a hint of green to the formula. Unfortunately I couldn’t get this green duochrome to show in the swatch, but you can see it in some of the below combos. This small hint of green makes it ideal for pairing with many greens from MAC’s array of colors. It also creates a stunning presence when paired with pinks and purples with a yellow base. The consistency of Gorgeous Gold is a little thinner than Goldmine and I find you have to apply a couple layers to build the color. Overall, I find this to be a pleasing shade and the perfect pop of color to your green eyeshadow looks.
