Beauty product of the day: gold rush

Gold is normally considered a no-brainer for the holiday season and we have to admit that we’re always looking for an excuse to squeeze it into our beauty routine. Discovering the glistening gold eye/nude lip combination backstage at the Marni show, we were overjoyed that our favourite metal was on trend for winter '09. Admittedly, we can sometimes be over-adventurous in our tendency to experiment with off-the-wall catwalk looks that are glorious on the models but less appealing on us. We’re of the general opinion, however, that the gold eye can work for even us mere mortals this Christmas, and that Laura Mercier’s fabulous Foiled Eye Colour in V.I.P might just be the perfect product to carry us through to spring. Its finely milled and intensely pigmented formulation looks amazing when dusted lightly on the inner eye and we’re sure it makes our eyes look bigger, too…
