Metallics have made their way onto the fashion scene, and now beauty brands are getting in on the glistening trend — adding precious metals to products both for their beauty benefits and glittery sheen. Bobbie Thomas, TODAY Style Editor and author of “The Buzz” for In Touch Weekly, highlights a few products that get gold stars for their carat-laced creations.
A glowing complexion is a beauty basic that never gets old. Products infused with gold flakes, liquidized crystals and reflective pigments are helping you achieve red carpet-worthy radiance. Estee Lauder’s Re-Nutriv Intensive Softening Lotion removes impurities and smoothes the skin ($40; esteelauder.com), while La Prairie’s Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold serum plumps lines and wrinkles while exfoliating ($525; shoplaprairie.com).
For those who aren’t ready to dive face first into this precious metal makeover, a drop of makeup will give you a hint of golden beauty, too. Jane Iredale’s 24-Karat Gold Dust contains gold flakes that will sprinkle your skin with a subtle shimmer ($12; dermstore.com), while YSL’s Golden Gloss features 24-carat gold powder that will give your pout the perfect glossy gleam ($27; Nordstrom.com).
