5 Rose Gold-Inspired Beauties

My favorite metal is rose gold.  There’s something about it that’s elegant, warm, and eye-catching to me.  It’s actually a color that doesn’t quite seem to be readily produced into makeup, actually–I think it’s the metallic finish.

Do you have anything rose-gold in your makeup stash?

  1. Wow–I love that Deborah Lippman polish. It’s pure rose-gold heaven!

  2. I have the Sleek Rose Gold Blusher, it’s a very pretty eyeshadow as well :)

  3. freshpinklips

    essie penny talk is also pretty!

    MAC Nymphette lipglass was always my go-to rose gold lip gloss.

    NYC has a lipgloss I used to wear in high school that is a rose gold color. UD’s e/s in X. It’s described as a peachy gold but I think it’s a nice rose gold. Soap Glory has a lipgloss Motherpucker. The original one is a nice rose gold color, very sheer. Boy does it give your lips an odd feeling. It’s like a rave going on in your lips. They feel like they’re bouncing all over the place, but they’re really not.

    Mac Gleam
    China Glaze Swing Baby (when held up next to my other gold polishes this looks considerably more rose gold)

    I swear we talked about rose gold when you got engaged because I was saying I’d (someday) like a rose gold engagement ring :). I wish I had more rose gold makeup-y items, but I don’t find too many. I have the MAC Rose Gold pigment, but maybe it’s just my coloring because it doesn’t translate very well. I see a lot of gold, but not any rose when I wear it.

    I adore rose gold! This is fabulous!

  9. Inspired by Rolexes? Too cool, lol :-)

  10. The lustre of rose gold is marvelous. Love these shades, and I do not have Guerlain Gillian. It needs to go on the list.

    Maybe it is more pink than rose-gold, but my Clinique Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Berry Blush does seem to be close – it’s a favorite of mine and I’ve repurchased it at least twice!

    MAC Roman Holiday Glass. It has been discontinued.

  13. Suzanne

    And for those who like this sort of thing: NYX Menage A Trois grinding blush

    I love the nail polish, and I own Sugarbomb. As much product as they give you I’ve made a noticeable dent in the middle :) This might be weird but I also love smelling it… it smells like sweet tarts!

    Have tons of make up items in this shade. It’s a standard for me to keep along with peaches that work for me. I rarely go deeper and only have 1 bronzer I have kept – paired em down as one works don’t need 4 that sort of work.

    The Elizabeth Arden Rose Aurora collection from this summer all comes in gorgeous rose gold packaging. The products are pretty sweet too – I have the lipstick, and am still hankering for the highlighter.

    An old favourite, now discontinued, is Dior’s Solo Dior Single Eyeshadow in Rose Dore. I’ll be so sad when I finish this!

  17. OMG, I just got Sugarbomb recently, and I’m in love. I want to wear it every single day, and really, I could. It’s so gorgeous, and it applies beautifully and wears very well. I’ll have to check some of the rest of these out!

  18. orly rage is definitely my fav

  19. Joanna

    I went out at lunch and bought Rouge G Gillian!

  20. Haaa – that’s funny b/c I’ve going crazy over rose gold lately – it’s quickly becoming my most fav metal, especially since I’ve found how much I like it against my skintone. I realllllllly like that Deborah Lippmann polish and think I’m gonna hafta snag me a bottle!

  21. Little Red

    Must get that Lippmaan nail polish!

    I have the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Eye Shadow in Rose Gold.

  22. Paula

    Benefit Sugarbomb is my HG blush. I’m super pale and I wear Sugarbomb every single day. It gives the perfect amount of warmth to my face without looking too orange.

  23. Polly

    Laura Mercier lip glace in Petal is my favorite rose gold lipgloss, though it is more like a golden peachy coral in some light.

    I’m pretty sure it is a good alternative for the luxe CDP lipgloss #2. (Too bad that the lipgloss line of CDP here will be permanently ‘sold out’ becoz of its EXTRAVAGANT price tag of 50+$ a pop)

    I find the LM Petal is one of ‘underwhelming’ lip gloss here ! BCs at LM counters always tell me it is somehow a ‘slow move’ shade so it will be hard to find it in store *sob* T-T

  24. I would love suggestions of rose gold eyeshadows. Another awesome rosegold polish is Zoya Meadow, it compliments my skin sooo well. I need a shadow that is as close to Meadow as possible. Any suggestions??
