10 rose gold beauty products you need now

Unless you’ve been stranded on a remote island (with no wi-fi), you can’t have failed to notice that the world at large is having something of a love affair with rose gold – the pretty pink-tinged offspring of copper and gold-gold. From home accessories to fine jewellery, there’s no escaping its allure, so give in to temptation and adorn your {eyelids}, {lips} (and dressing table) with this most-precious of metals.

Eagerly anticipated, Jouer’s gorgeous {Rose Gold Collection} has been provoking palpitations of excitement amongst the brand’s die-hard devotees. A celebration of the rosy hue, this trio of lip and complexion enhancers will create a subtle, ‘backlit’ lustre – lending warmth to sun-starved skin while cloaking lips with kiss-resistant pigment. We’re particularly besotted with the {Lip Topper} – a twinkling, long-wearing lacquer that beautifies bare lips or adds a hint of glitter to your favourite shade of {Long-Wear Lip Crème}

Famed for their signature rose gold brushes (they kick-started the ongoing obsession), {Zoeva} have transformed the formerly mundane into the highly-prized. Boasting beautiful rose gold ferrules, perfectly balanced handles and super-soft bristles for expert application of your base, powder and shadows, these are the must-have tools for all discerning make up mavens.

Their {Rose Golden Luxury Brush Set – Volume 3} is essential for any make up aficionado – starring eight stunning brushes for buffing foundation, diffusing highlighter and creating purrrrrrfectly smooth feline flicks. Or fall head-over-heels for their exquisite {Rose Golden Blush Palette}, with three perfect powders to sculpt, ‘set’ and highlight with a subtle rosy glow.

BECCA’s {Shimmering Skin Perfector} in ‘Rose Gold’ is a firm favourite of Alexa Chung – tasked with granting an ethereal, all-over glow to her complexion. Use as an all-over priming potion, or concentrate on ‘high points’ to accentuate your cheekbones. Or try RMS Beauty’s beautiful {Master Mixer} – an utterly exquisite pot of molten metal that’s ideal for gilding cheekbones, brow bones, cupid’s bow or eyelids. Infused with ultra-nourishing ingredients (and completely free from any ‘nasties’), this is a magical multi-tasking must-have.

And speaking of ‘magic’, Charlotte Tilbury‘s entire range is housed in stunning, vintage-style rose golden packaging. Her multi-award-winning {Magic Cream} looks just like it belongs in a starlet’s dressing room (and works wonders for dry, depleted, lacklustre complexions), while her coveted {Hot Lips} {lipsticks} look wonderfully chic and come in a range of arresting colours.

Your lips will also look exquisite dressed in Beauty Bakerie’s {Metallic Lip Whip} in ‘Rose Pose’ – a beautiful rose-tinted gold – while Kevyn Aucoin’s marvellous {lip gloss} – simply named {The Lip Gloss} – in ‘Starlight’ grants a (non-sticky!) glimmering gleam to bare lips or your favourite {lipstick}.

And don’t neglect your eyelids. Join the waitlist to be first to learn of the return of Huda Beauty’s TO-DIE-FOR {Textured Shadows Palette – Rose Gold Edition): a line-up of 18 pigment-packed powders that create an array of arresting eye make up looks. Everything’s coming up roses!
