I could have easily given you a list of ten, being the gold fiend that I am, but I’ll keep it to the current five that really say holiday to me. I think gold is a very versatile color. It pairs well with warmer shades like bronze, rust, and berry, but it can also work with cooler-toned shades like violet, teal, and blue. And if golds not your cup of tea, I have five of my favorite silvers for holiday coming right up. Any interest in seeing some holiday blue shades? What other holiday-themed favorites would you like to see?
I thought it would be fun to celebrate the London Olympics with a few posts inspired by the colors of the medals handed out (gold, silver, and bronze). This post features five of my favorite gold-colored products!
I’m all over this kind of color. Urban Decay’s Honey is one of my all-time favorite golds, and it’s been discontinued, so having a dupe is excellent. The texture is so, so soft–the powder of OCC’s Loose Colour Concentrates is extremely finely-milled. It applies well both wet and dry, and it gets a little smoother and more metallic when applied wet as compared to the dry application. This shade is lovely with warm browns, coppers, and burgundies. Triptych wears really well, too, without primer–a solid eight hours without creasing or fading.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades! We try to update products as they become discontinued, and if you discover a product has been discontinued, please help us help others by letting us know.
