Astral Gold Attract

Astral Gold Attract is a light-medium gold with robust, heat undertones and a glowing, metallic end. It had a twinkling, high-shine–nearly wet-looking–impact on my pores and skin. It had semi-opaque pigmentation utilized dry with a brush or opaque protection utilized with a fingertip or a dampened brush (you’ll be able to see how the protection is greater than it seems to be at a look primarily based on the angled swatch). I most popular a dampened brush myself as I felt it yielded excessive protection, minimized fallout, and ensured that essentially the most sparkle transferred to my lid (somewhat than some getting caught to my fingertip).

I didn’t see any be aware to make use of this shade with fingertips (over brushes) within the “methods to” directions, so it wasn’t famous as being sheer or buildable. I believed it had a good quantity of protection by itself and might be constructed up (even dry with minimal fallout), however it may positively be used to layer over one other shade so as to add sparkle, too. It wore effectively for 9 hours with slight fallout over time.
