TKB Trading’s Forged Gold

When I swatch this, it looks pretty close to other metallic golds that I've tried from other collections…and, as with TKB's other Crucible colors, I can spot a few indie eyeshadows that probably use this as one of their main colorants. Just be aware that this is a mica with no ingredients to help with adhesion. You'll definitely need a primer and possibly a fixative to get more than an hour's wear out of this. Even with those restrictions, though, this is a gorgeous color with an amazing finish.
