Who remembers the day I boldly announced that I wouldn't be rushing out to buy any more Gucci Magnetic Colour Mono eyeshadows after my first review of them? Well that was an epic fail as I have since amassed errr 6 more. You can see the second trio I bought here and today I bring you my brief thoughts on Iconic Bronze, Iconic Copper and Antique Gold plus some pictures.
Iconic Bronze and Iconic Copper swatch similarly but in 'real life' look a little different. Iconic Bronze has a lot of glitter packed into it and is a little 'grittier' in texture than Iconic Copper. I have been obsessively wearing it as a liner. It's very pigmented and would give a very bold warm sparkly look to the eyes if placed all over the lid.
Iconic Copper is very smooth, silky and again, pigmented. Here I am wearing it in the centre of my lid with a slightly darker tone on either side.
These two are probably too warm for me to pull off as a single shade across the lid and I think you don't need both-they're close enough in tone to stand alone. If forced to chose one I would go for Iconic Copper. And if you don't want to splurge on Gucci I reckon UD Half Baked would pretty much do the job.
Antique Gold is a regret purchase I am afraid. The formula is great-again smooth and silky to apply and the lasting power is exceptional but the shade pulls a little yellow on me and doesn't suit my colouring.
Gucci make up-yay or nay? So far I think I am pretty much on the yay side!
