While metallics have had serious staying power over the last year, let's talk more about some of the golden treasures we've found. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that gold nail polish was the next big trend, and we already know that golden highlights are hot. We've seen numerous golden lip glosses as well as tons of glamorous gold packaging. And guess what? Here come more gilded treats! So get excited and stay tuned all week long for more golden beauty treasures. Today's topic is gold dust — a little something sparkly for the face, shoulders and decolletage.
Bonne Bell Glimmer Bronze Highlighting Dust, Gold'n Glitz ($3.95) is a loose powder with microscopic particles that create a sexy glow on your face and body. Be warned, a little shimmer goes a long way, so you'll want to tap your puff before you apply to ensure that the gold dust spreads evenly and isn't too heavy in one area. The result is a luminous glow that lasts all night long.
For more gold dust,
Nars Sparkling Pressed Powder in Gold Rush ($30) is a great, soft and subtle finely-milled highlighting powder. It contains silica so it glides on smoothly, and it has corn starch to absorb any excess oil. This is a great accessory for any evening out on the town.
Estee Lauder Platinum Illuminating Loose Shimmer Powder ($32.50) is so popular that it's sold out on the main website. Luckily, I've found some more here — so have fun and play away with this limited-edition jar of shiny powder.
