Fluffy Little Pick of the Week: Catrice Intensif'eye Eyeshadow in Black or White Swan?

Bottom left: swatched both wet and dry.

Part of Catrice's Nymphelia collection, these baked eyeshadows are marbled with three colours that swirl together for a multi-dimensional look. This one, Black or White Swan?, is really pigmented and sparkly so is probably best kept for a night out rather than day-to-day use.
I don't own MAC's Golden Gaze, but from what I've seen and read, this doesn't seem like a million miles off. It's also similar to the marbled black and gold shadow from the Clarins Barocco palette, which I absolutely adore, except the Catrice version is a fraction of the price.
These shadows cost just €4.29 and can be used wet or dry; I now own two out of the available three (check out Have You Seen Alice? here), so it seems daft not to round out the set...! Watch out Charly's Chocolate Factory, I'm coming for you soon.
Have you tried out anything from the Nymphelia collection?
Oh! And if you can't get Catrice in your country but would like to try it, let me know in the comments as I'd love to arrange a swap!
