Napoleon Perdis Bronze Patrol
Oh how envious we are of the Olympians and their spectators lapping it up in the summer sun! Napoleon Perdis can help you get your (faux) beach tan with Bronze Patrol. Rescu loves the baked (not fried!) powder that contains shimmering gold flecks that will leaves your skin with an enviable glow. Depending on how you like your makeup, the formula transforms into a creamier texture with a drop of water.
RRP: $60, available at Napoleon Perdis concept stores, David Jones and selected pharmacies nationally.
La Prairie Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold
Like the Chinese diving team, this faultless product gets 10s across the board as La Prairie Cellular Radiance Concentrate Pure Gold steps up and delivers gold (literally). The colloidal gold in a liquid suspension melts immediately into the skin to slow down the breakdown of collagen; just one drop brightens and illuminates, to bring back elastin and youthfulness. With a dream team of ingredients include radiance complex, rejuvenating plant extracts and anti-wrinkle neuro-peptide (to name a few), we think we're on to a winner.
RRP: $930 available from David Jones stores and selected beauty salons. www.laprairie.com.au
Molton Brown Limited Edition Olympics MMXII Collection
In honour of the Olympics, Molton Brown has brought together its best hand and body products and packaged them in (you guessed it) gold, silver and bronze. We love the Silver Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Bath & Shower as the combination of spiced aromatic oils and pink pepper oil leaves skin with an exotic and subtle scent.
Gold Naran Ji Fine Liquid Handwash $39 300mL
Silver Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Bath & Shower $39 300mL Bronze Re-Charge Black Pepper Bodywash $39 300mL
Available from David Jones and Molton Brown Emporium store, Queen Victoria Building
Avon Anew Ultimate Night Gold Emulsion
Let the goodness of gold work it's magic, even when you're asleep! Avon Anew Ultimate Night Gold Emulsion has a luxurious gel-cream formula that works to combine intense moisture with anti-ageing care to help repair excessive dryness, deep wrinkles and loss of radiance. The cream works to increase moisture levels to achieve a more youthful look.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Limited Edition Pure Color Five Color Gelée Powder EyeShadow Palette in Bronze Sands
Match all the drama of the Olympics with a truly dramatic eye from the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess range. This innovative five colour palette with new Prisma-Shine technology, allows for high-definition color impact that won’t crease, fade, or flake. The formula is a tribrid of a liquid, powder, and gel all in one! Apply the shades dry, or wet if you want to intensify your look.
RRP: $90 available from esteelauder.com.au
OPI Gold Shatter Top Coat
We simply couldn't leave out the nails with all these metallics on our minds! We may not be shattering world records, but we can certainly 'shatter' our nails in less than a minute! OPI Gold Shatter Top Coat brings a daring dimension to nail design. Applied as a top coat, the polish shatters to create a cracked pattern similar to a leopard print and just as fierce. Not for the faint of heart!
RRP: $19.95 OPI is available in leading beauty salons and David Jones stores Australia wide.
