Paint Pot Series: Sparklin' in Gold

The Star: Indianwood Paint Pot
I just can't get enough of golds and I often create my best looks with it. I've been lusting over Indianwood for some time now, but kept putting off buying it because I have so many other golds! But, it is truly worth it because it is my favorite gold cream shadow of all time. Here's a look I created this past weekend.

MAC e/s in Amber Lights (on lid)
MAC e/s in Antiqued (in crease and outter V)
MAC e/s in Trax (slightly in crease)

Shisheido Cream Eyeliner in black

Golds look really great on you! The only golds I have are minerals and I don't do the powder shadows too well ;)

Thanks Nilla! You should definitely jump on Indianwood. Amber lights and Goldmine are my two other favorite MAC gold shades.

Golds look absolutely beautifuuuul on you, sweets. I love Indianwood PP. It's one of my favorites. I have Amberlights, but I can't wear it b/c it realllly pops on me.

You so need to jump on paint pots!

Try toning down amberlights with a little goldmine. But yeah, amber lights is definitely one of a kind!

I love this look. I was about to purchase Indianwood but I had a similar thought, it was too much like other golds. I think I'm going to check it out one more time.

Yeah, there's something about yellow, especially at spring time. :) Having seen your skintone, I'd say brighter yellow suits better for you! I'm pale as a ghost and desperately trying to get a tan so I'm sticking to pale yellow, at least for now. :D
