I am such a sucker for pretty packaging, and it’s even better when the products inside are just as shiny.
As the Olympics came to a close, I wanted to do a roundup of my favorite rose gold makeup products, because owning the Lorac PRO Metal Rose Gold palette is basically the same thing as winning a gold medal in my mind. After all, you can’t wear a gold medal on your face, but you can come close with the right gold eyeshadow and contour palettes.
To get that golden glow on your face that Olympic athletes have when they stand on the podium, these are some of my favorite products. You can live your Olympic moment every day by going for gold in the makeup you wear.
So here’s my latest Fave Five roundup, featuring the shiny gold products that rock my world.
Lorac PRO Metal Rose Gold Palette: This was a limited-edition eyeshadow palette that’s hard to find now, but it’s so worth the hunt. It’s shiny, tiny, and perfect. The palette has eight brilliant metallic shades that are somehow both neutral and stunning, so I have it stashed in my purse now at all times for both day and night. Okay, speech over, get your butt on Ebay.
Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Grind: If you’ve read my Fave Five posts, you’ll know I love this eyeliner more than life itself. That said, this pink color is a new one that I’ve tried and it’s amazingly unexpected.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb and Rosewater: For dewy, glowy skin, this spray is everything. EVERYTHING. I give myself a spray for hydration in the morning and at night, or use it as a setting spray. I’ll spritz some on if I need a boost throughout the day, too. It’s relaxing, smells amazing, and makes your face light up. And it’s $7.
Koko Kollection Face Palette: This has nice shimmering soft gold and satin bronze colors that you can use as highlighter, bronzer and blush. It’s super blendable and gives you a subtle glow (well, as subtle as a Kardashian face palette can be).
NYX Cosmic Metals Lip Cream in Metropolitan Night: This metallic champagne gold shade is a serious statement, but if you like a bold lip, this one’s for you.
