Gold Medal Beauty

With the Olympics here, we really should be supporting our fellow countrymen, be they Australian, British, Chinese or from anywhere else! I get so patriotic during the Olympics it’s amazing…you would never know that about me during the 4 period between games.

In support of all the running, swimming and jumping, I’ve tracked down some Gold, Silver and Bronze makeup, perfume and some skincare so that next time you are watching your favourite Olympic event you can feel like you too are a winner!

In first place in the perfume category we have DKNY Golden Delicious. This is a lovely floral perfume that’s perfect for all occasion (it’s also a pretty bottle!). In second place, we have La Prairie with Silver Rain. This is a stunning shaped bottle. The perfume itself is quite strong as it contains several strong smelling florals and is more suited to special occasions.

For our makeup, it’s a little harder to compare shadows and lipsticks and most brands don’t even produce a gold lipstick! So instead I’ll just go ahead and tell you what I found! If you have found some Olympic trends that you love, let me know.

Great Gold buys:

Dior One Colour Eyeshadow – No. 546 in Gold Touch. This is a lovely creamy eyeshadow that goes well with other colours.

Dolce & Gabbana Lip Gloss – # 160 Gold. This gloss has a lovely shiny finish that works perfectly with a red matt lipstick.

Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Gold Ultra Restorative Capsules. Many women swear by these capsules and it’s no surprise as these intensive single dose capsules deliver ceramides and essential lipids to strengthen skin. They can apparently minimise the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and improve skin tone & clarity. Definitely a gold medal winner!

Guerlain L’Or Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold Makeup Base. This product actually contains REAL GOLD! It also instantly melts into skin to retain moisture. It imparts a sheer glow and leaves skin with an even finish under makeup.

Spectacular Silver

Jane Iredale 24 Karat Gold Dust Shimmer Powder – Silver. As you could probably already tell from the name, this powder contains 24 Karat gold dust. If you were wanting to look extra-shimmery for a special evening, then this ones for you!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Eye Shadow – 33 Silver Ball. This is another lovely creamy eyeshadow from Estee Lauder (they just don’t get it wrong, do they?). It also contains Vitamin E which is good for your skin and should help in preventing Eye Irritation. Nice!

Shiseido The Makeup Lip Gloss – G10 Silver Gleam. This is not just a gloss, It’s also a lip conditioner, it contains vitamin A and E to moisturise  and hydrate your lips. This is great for those times when your are wearing long-lasting lipstick and it starts to get a bit feathery.

Bronze Beauties

YSL Eyeshadow Ombres 5 Lumieres (5 Colour Harmony for Eyes) – No. 07 Bronze Gold. This palette is great if you are looking to create a bronze-goddess look. You can also wear the colours by themselves and they look just as fab

Dior Addict Ultra Gloss #522 Intimate Bronze. This gloss is so great I would wear it by itself, all day, every day.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Sheer Lip Tint in Bronze. As with almost all Estee Lauder products, this lipstick moisturises while you wear it. It also contains Vitamin A, E and has an SPF of 15+!

YSL La Laque Couture Nail Lacquer – # 28 Bronze Aztec. I love this colour and as a bonus, it’s long wearing so should last the entire time the Olympics are on – Hooray!
