Gleam On

Know what’s really stunning on a summer night? Shimmer. Of the pink/copper/gold variety. Maybe even metallic. It’s also a quick way to make a subtle statement without much effort at all, especially when you’re talking creamy, no-brush-necessary products.

Touch in SOL, a really sweet brand that I’ve known about for a few years, recently came out with these dual ended lip and eye products. A “foil” base coat on one end, and a “glitter” top coat on the other. #2, Penny, is so freaking pretty on lips, like a metallic copper pink that I CANNOT WAIT to pair with a soft peach cheek, and loads of mascara.

Two more insanely beautiful eye options are the Tom Ford eye duos – my fave is Golden Peach, and Butter London’s Glazen Eye Gloss in Icing, a pretty pinky-mauve. The TF cream metallic peach shadow looks gorgeous with lots of gold highlight all over, and a soft shimmering gloss – like CT’s Blondie, above – on lips. Butter London’s product is SO long-wearing. Despite looking glossy, it really dries down [w/out flaking], and lasts all. day. long.

The gloss to end all glosses? Tom Ford’s Pink Guilt, a copper pink with multi-colored shimmer that provides lots of color, lots of shine, and incredible lasting power for a gloss. I envision wearing this out with some smudged black liner. yas.

Have you tried any of the above products? Are you loving any/all things metallic at the moment?
