Due to a variety of factors – including enduring economic turmoil in Europe – the price of gold has been steadily increasing, with silver futures on the rise as well. While this may not be welcome news for jewelry shoppers, beauty junkies can still shine on thanks to the presence of metallic elements in our favorite makeup and skincare products!
AVON ULTRA COLOR RICH 24K GOLD Lipstick – I have to admit that when I saw this bright gold lipstick I immediately passed it on to my mom. But she talked me into trying it and told me that if it was too glitzy I could mix it over other shades. This time she was right! (I hate to admit it). Unless you have tawny, chocolate or mocha skin, Im not sure you can pull it off alone, but if you are fair like me it adds a touch of sheen to your bottom lip. Plus how much do you really want to spend on a gold lipstick anyway?! Benefit 24K Sexy Gold Lipstick costs a lot more than the Avon one.
FINAL VERDICT: BOB (Bail Out Beauty) – At around $5, you can’t beat it.
