I got this shadow a while ago, but only used it in the inner third of my eye as a high light. I never understood what MAC meant by "bleached blonde" in their description of the shadow-- until this morning. I decided to put a whole wash of this on my eyelid--- and IT'S GORGEOUS!! A light gold, shimmering surface that pulls lots of light into your eye area. It is a lustre, which can be hard to work with, but a good base does wonders. LOVE!
