I love gold in all kind of cosmetic applications, but sometimes these metallic shades just seem like their just pure glitter. This isn't and is therefore my favourite golden mica. Comparing to the probably 10 kinds of gold I have - this is the more subtle one. I would say the color is a dark golden color and I use it sometimes as a replacement for yellow. It also seems like it's a less "powdery" mica, and even if it's a gold you won't have glitter flying around. If you're looking for something that isn't just glitter in a bag, this is a nice one.
This Gold can be used in any product, from foundations to lips! Probably the most versatile of all the colored micas. It has such a low luster that it is never "sparkly" nor is it metallic, but it is far from matte. It has a glorious sheen when rubbed down. This is my first choice in Gold colors, adds a beautiful gold to lip colors! Beware it can "yellow" cool shades, in lip gloss I will use all Cool colorants & then add a little Gold Fine for the sheen without changing the result from red to orange.
This gold is very creamy, and is my favorite gold so far. I love adding it into my lippies, because it gives a wonderful sparkly appearance!
