If you’ve seen the gold infomercial that's been playing nonstop on TV recently (“Ship us your unwanted jewelry!”), then you know that gold doesn’t come cheap. Except if it’s for your face.
Up until now, getting a golden beauty infusion would cost you (remember YSL’s $30 lip gloss?). But with Avon’s Ultra Color Rich 24K, the first lipstick with real 24-karat flakes of gold, you can get your fix for $5. Our favorite shades include “Golden Nectar”, a warm peach, and “Golden Wine”, which is a glitzy version of your favorite black lipstick
For the rest of your face, there’s Jane Iredale’s 24-karat Gold Dust powder. And to get real goldfingers, try Essie’s limited-edition “Love, Beverly Hills xx”. Yes, those are actual flakes of gold floating in the red polish. For now, you can only pick it up in California, but come January it will be available online.
See, there’s nothing wrong with being a gold digger.
