There’s no doubt that rose gold was the colour of 2016. And when it comes to beauty products, we are in the midst of a serious rose gold rush. The oh-so-pretty variations of lipstick, blush and even nail varnish can be found anywhere now, but happily, it’s not all about style over substance – some hit the mark in equal measure. And from illuminating highlighters to blushed metallics, here’s our pick of what should have a firm spot in your makeup bag:
Urban Decay NAKED3 Eyeshadow Palette, €47
With 12 neutral eyeshadow shades, from light, shimmering pinks, to deep glittering black shades, this is the ultimate palette for a rose-hued beauty look. The shade combination is versatile, the colour payoff is great and you can go from day-to-night seamlessly with a stroke of your eyeshadow brush.
Tom Ford Orchid Soleil Eau de Parfum, from €99
With notes of black orchid, pink peppercorn, vanilla, chestnut cream and tuberose (among others), this stunning fragrance with its rose-hued packaging will chase those winter blues away.
NARS Hardwired Eyeshadow in Outer Limits, €30
Yes, this gorgeous highly-pigmented shade screams party season, but once you start to work it into your beauty look, you’ll see just how well the colour blends out for something more low-key too.
ROSIE FOR AUTOGRAPH by M&S
Launching her debut beauty collection with M&S, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s 51-piece collection is both visually stunning and packed full of high-quality products, setting her ahead of the pack when it comes to celebrity-fronted beauty launches. It was designed with the ‘girl-on-the-go’ in mind and every product is worth picking up should you need to restock your kit. In particular, the ‘Lip Glossy’ (€17, pictured above) is a balmy, hydrating colour stick that leaves the lips feeling nourished and looking silky soft is a gem and ideal for a natural daytime look.
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in LIV IT UP, €30
A gorgeous dusty-rose shade of pink that flatters all skin tones and comes in a beautiful rose gold tube. This would make a perfect stocking-filler this Christmas too.
