We're loving: products with real gold
They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but there’s no harm in having a little gold in your life too.
And if getting your hands on actual gold jewellery isn’t really on the cards, fret not, because there are enough affordable beauty products packed with real gold to keep you looking and feeling good.
FOR YOUR SKIN:
You don’t get more luxurious than La Prairie, and the Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold is no exception. Micro-particles of colloidal gold help prevent the breakdown of collagen and elastin, improving skin firmness, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and evening out skin tone.
FOR YOUR EYELASHES:
There’s nothing quite like an eyelash curler that lifts and curls lashes while looking a little fancy. Shu Uemura Gold Eyelash Curler, $40, 1300 651 991 is coated in 24-karat gold and features a soft elastic rubber (so you know your lashes are in safe hands ) that will fit any eye shape.
FOR YOUR FACE:
Whatever the season, a golden, bronzed complexion is always in vogue. Jane Iredale’s Moonglow & Sunbeam Quad features bronze and copper-toned shades that can be used on your eyes and cheeks, or as a highlighter. And the 24-karat gold flakes in there make sure your skin is left with a subtle glow.
FOR YOUR LIPS:
The pure 24-karat gold in Avon Ultra Colour Rich 24K Lipstick will make sure that your lips will be the only bling you need. The gold in the lippy leaves your lips with a gorgeous sparkle and shine, while vitamin E will ensure your lips are soft and smooth all day long.
FOR YOUR BODY:
Add sparkle and shine to your body with glominerals Dust 24K. The 24-karat gold powder delivers a range of effects, from a subtle sparkle to a gilded skin tone. Either dust it on with a powder brush or mix it in with your body moisturiser and smooth it over – instant glamour in just a few minutes!
FOR YOUR NAILS:
You may think you’ve seen it all when it comes to gold polishes and topcoats, but trust us, you ain’t seen nothing until you’ve seen the soon-to-be-released OPI 18-karat gold leaf top-coat, The Man With The Golden Gun. Celebrating James Bond’s golden anniversary, the gold leaf topcoat creates a flecked gold appearance over your nails. Wear it on its own or over your favourite shade for a nail look that’ll definitely turn heads.
The Man With the Golden Gun is available in October.
