5 Glittering Golds for the Holidays

Glittering golds… a go-to for New Year’s Eve, at the very least, but surely just as lovely throughout the winter–if only to brighten up some of those chilly days!

  1. Lit Cosmetics Rich & Famous — a holographic, glittering gold
  2. Zoya Kerry — bright, true yellow gold with glitter and sparkle
  3. Bobbi Brown Canary — a sparkling gold glitter gloss to be worn alone or layered
  4. Revlon Gold Coin — an almost-cool-toned metallic gold (or for a high-end, Illamasqua Swinger)
  5. Sugarpill Goldilux — a brightened, metallic, true yellow gold

What are your favorite glittery, sparkly, or metallic gold-hued shades?

Bobbi Brown Old Hollywood Long-Wear Cream Shadow Sticks

Bobbi Brown 24 Karat Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick ($28.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “beige gold.” It’s a pale, champagne gold with a frosted, metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single stroke and built up nicely. The consistency was lightly creamy–enough to glide across lids without skipping but it didn’t take forever to set. Once set, it stays in place and wore well for eight hours. This is particularly nice for highlighting the inner corner of the eye to brighten. Too Faced Crème Brulee (P) is darker, powder. L’Oreal Gold Imperial (LE, $7.99) is yellower, power. L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine (P, $7.99) is slightly warmer, yellower, and powder. Lancome Eternal Gold (P, $24.50) is powder, slightly yellower. Dior Night Golds #4 (LE) is warmer, powder. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Candlelight & Pure Gold High Shimmer Lipglosses

Bobbi Brown Candlelight High Shimmer Lipgloss ($24.00 for 0.23 fl. oz.) is described as a “champagne glitter.” It’s a pale, golden beige with gold, champagne, and copper shimmer and sparkle. On lips, it adds a very subtle warmth, but it is primarily adding a glossy shine and a moderate amount of shimmer. It wears three hours on me and is lightly hydrating. MAC Impossibly Sweet (LE, $15.00) is very similar. MAC Pleasure Principle (LE, $20.00) is lighter. MAC Moth to Flame (P, $20.00) is warmer. MAC Phiff (LE, $20.00) is also warmer. See comparison swatches.

Bobbi Brown Nude Glow Shimmer Brick ($45.00 for 0.22 oz.) is described as a “shimmering quartet of pearlescent colors.” It’s a medium-dark, bronze and copper-shimmered brown with a frosted, slightly metallic, finish.

Kevyn Aucoin Natura (P) is less shimmery. MAC Exotic Ember (LE, $25.00) is darker, browner. MAC Pressed Amber (LE, $25.00) is grayer. MAC Superb (LE, $30.00) is slightly rose-toned.
