Ever notice how everything on the high end in the beauty world is gold? Not without reason. The colour is synonymous with a precious metal that was once even used as a monetary standard. It’s everlasting, it’s eternal, and it manages to — all at once — suggest both refined luxury and bodacious showy glamour. Above all, it’s pretty to look at and we think you’re going to love what’s inside just as much as how it looks. Happy holidays!
Though slightly intimidating at first glance, this gold lip gloss proves itself easy to wear at first swipe. A thin coating on the lips will add a dimension of shine and warm satiny reflectiveness. If, however, the thought of shiny lips isn’t your cup of tea, a well-placed dab in the middle of the lips will add subtle dimension and shine.
This beauty from Trudon is named after Empress Eugénie’s Mediterranean villa, and its scent is correspondingly inspired by the aromatic citrus garden of the Cyrnos villa. The primary combination of pine, fig, lavender and thyme make this smell so radiant it’s almost happy.
It’s a cushion, it’s a highlighter, it’s a no brainer. If anything, this year has proved that Lancôme is serious about leading the cushion game and this highlighter release is no pushover. Lisa Eldridge put a liquid highlighter in the supremely convenient cushion format, which means on-the-go glow and radiance.
The house of Dior’s iconic scent gets a dry oil rendition. We love the classically Grecian-inspired amphora shape of the bottle that’s sure to play well on any vanity, counter, tub, or sink.
Luminising powders are well and fine, and this Burberry one has a great champagne tone with flattering micro-shimmer pigments. But you (or the lucky recipient of this powder) will probably enjoy it because it’s fragranced with the My Burberry scent. How’s that for a sensory experience?
It looks like a sparkly clutch and contains eyeshadows, blush, highlighter, and lip colours. Practical and pretty.
