NYX Cosmetics’ Jumbo Eye Pencil in Pure Gold

Yellows and I have an uneasy relationship. Too much “yellow” and not enough bright, and I can't wear it. This is definitely gold, but it's deep enough and orange enough that it works with my coloring. I do wish that this wasn't a metallic shade, because it's got patchy application; and I have to be careful what colors I use this with, to play up the warmth and let the yellow tones diminish, or I'll look a bit jaundiced.
