The Go for the Gold collection is the last of the three limited edition offerings that Wet n Wild is bringing us this summer (click here if you missed Mermaid's Cove and here if you missed Inked).
I told myself I wasn't going to do any swatches today but, honestly, I could not help myself! I had to swatch these babies because they were just too pretty to leave untouched!
All I know is that I own a ton of gold and brown shades from MAC and these two shades remind me of something I own. They are absolutely gorgeous in person and my swatches don't do them justice but here you go:
(Note: all products in this post were swatched on bare skin without primer)
No sparkle to these shadows--just beautiful satiny shimmer. I'm in L.O.V.E.
Oh this bronzer! I'm not sure I can even find the words to begin to describe how much I love this. If you are medium, fair or pale and you've been looking for a natural-looking, neutral bronzer, you MUST check out Everything Under the Sun. When these colors are swiped together, they create almost a MAC Satin Taupe-ish kind of shade that is so subtle, yet so beautiful. I have never seen anything like it at the drugstore:
This is not a bold bronzer, so again, I think this will work best on those with medium, fair or pale skintones. UPDATE: After wearing this bronzer several times now, I can confirm that there is a gold shimmer that comes out when this is applied to the skin. It's warmer on my face than what you see in these swatches.
The Go for the Gold collection will hit stores Mid-May. The eyeshadow trio retails for $2.99 and the bronzer retails for $2.99 as well.
