Trendwatch: Antique Gold

If you ever want to know what’s on trend in the beauty world, look to bloggers. Magazines and websites can tell you what’s hot, but it’s the passionate bloggers who are hitting the counters and drug stores buying, testing, and reviewing the products. They are the gals who really have their fingers on the pulse.

As we take that slow march towards Fall, many bloggers have been saying that the new IT color this season is Antique Gold. It’s sophisticated and classic, but there are so many subtle twists on Antique Gold that there are a plethora of choices for those who want to dabble. If you have cool skin tones (the veins on your wrist look blue) then go for go for a gold with copper undertones, and if you have warm tones (the veins on your wrist look green) then you can wear a more yellow gold. Some of our favorites include:

Nicole by OPI – For Gold Times Sake, as reviewed by Pink Sith

Maybelline Color Show – Bold Gold, as seen on Beauty 101

Models Own – Gold Digger, with the most incredible black and silver glitter topcoat, photographed by Beauty By Miss L

Revlon Street Wear – Bburnt, on Polish Obsession

Sephora by OPI – I Only Shop Vintage, looking fab on Lawless Lacquer

Dolce & Gabbana Desert, on Dat York Loves

A-England – Holy Grail, with bonus copper glitter, on Polish Obsession

Our favorite of all…Butter London – Marbs, with gold studs, also on Beauty By Miss L (we want to raid her collection)

The best thing is, a lot of these are mass brand polishes which means you can be on trend for cheap this fall. What do you think? Are you an Antique Gold girl?
