Are You Over the Gold Beauty Trend?

I love that metallics have made a huge comeback, but what I had expected to be a blip in time has lasted well over two years. With some of the collections I've been able to take a peek at for Fall 2008 (especially the one from Chanel), it looks like heavy metals are here to stay, especially decadent gold beauty treats.

I had a love affair with gold polish ever since I saw Heidi Montag and Lauren Conrad from The Hills rocking gilded nails, but now I'm getting a little bit tired of it. I can't say I'm surprised: Gold is a bold, trendy look, and trends do tend to come and go. How about you? Are you a golden girl, or are you over it?

I really like metallic makeup it really lights up your face and I'd like to see them stick around.

I am not a gold girl so I never was into this trend.

I think it's a classic and goes with a lot of styles and outfits.. Like if I was going to some party or a wedding, with a gold or oxydee dress gold makeup would make it so glamourous and chic!

I'm tired of gold everywhere. Gold, gold, gold.

I've been wearing golds on my eyes for quite a while, and they really bring out the green in them. But I've never been one for the gold-on-cheeks thing, and purely gold-colored lip things make me look very strange indeed. So my style shall keep being my own.

I've liked gold for many years and its annoying that people suddenly made it a trend and they're now saying its over. I hate all trends for that reason.

I have no problem with it, but I don't wear gold...not even jewelery unless its white gold. It just does not suit my colouring at all..I tend to prefer cooler colours with the exception of greens, where I like lemon-limey ones. On the other hand, I love silvery and charcoal-y metallics, even bronzes are ok. But out-and-out gold on me looks harsh, brassy and clashes with virtually everything about me.

I wore gold makeup long before it became a trend, and will continue to wear it long after it's 'out'.

I'm in the "so what if it's 'Out', it looks good on me" camp. I like trends because they give me an excuse to try new things, but if something works for me, I tend to stick with it. Gold shadow/liner brings out the gold flecks in my eyes, so I'm for it.

as a green eyed blonde, it's pretty much mandated by law that I wear gold makeup.

What trend? I didn't even realize since I'm not trendy. I agree with Francoisehardly.

I never give any importance to whether something is "in" or not because I don't see why I should care when either I like something or I don't and that won't change with trends. The only thing I don't like is some of the packaging for some like that Benefit one pictured and that Glamourazzi bottle.

I'm definitely over it. Gold is pretty, but done.
