By Anna McDougall
Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Electric Forest
Stand out from the cheering crowd with Napoleon Perdis' Colour Disc in Electric Forest (Aussie green) that will give your eyes a patriotic boost. The pigment-rich eyeshadow will consistenly give a gold-medal performance as the formula goes on smooth, is easy to blend and is long-lasting for the ultimate colour surge, whether you're pool-side, track-side or out and about, celebrating our athletes efforts!

Molton Brown Londinium Fragrance
Developed in honor of the London Olympics, this fragrance is quintessentially cosmopolitan, capturing a worldly essence that is vibrant and welcoming. If the bottle hasn't already captured your imagination the mixed notes of playful zested bergamot, crisp berries and eastern myrrh with the elegance of green oakmoss and incense smoke with the intoxicating warmth of an aged malt whisky, will hook you in. Top notes are bergamot and juniper berries, middle notes are myrrh and oak moss absolute and base notes are incense and malt accord. Looks like a winner!
RRP: $150 Limited edition, available from David Jones stores and The Molton Brown Store, Queen Victoria Building, Sydney
Burberry Beauty Compact Powder Palette
We simply can't have an London Olympics special without front runners, Burberry Beauty. In this case, bronze is best with the Burberry Beauty Compact Powder palette from the Iconic Nudes Collection. The effortless hole-in-one highlighting compact sees four blendable shades naturally highlight and define in one simple swish. This cute compact is a team effort; blend the colours across the face for a fresh everyday summer glow or use each shade separately to illuminate forehead, eyes, cheeks and chin.
