These opulent-looking products – think a sparkly skin-smoothing cleansing butter and a mist that promises an instant facelift – will look fab on your dressing table.
PHOTOGRAPHY VEE CHIN
MTG PLOSION, $399.
The reason for this facial mist’s hefty price tag? Apparently, it gives you an instant, albeit temporary, facelift. It emits a jet of carbonic acid, which immediately gives skin a boost of hydration and a visible lift. Just spritz it on and expect visible results in under a minute.
PETER THOMAS ROTH 24K GOLD PURE LUXURY CLEANSING BUTTER (PRICE UNAVAILABLE).
This is infused with 24K gold, which, on top of giving you a blinged-up cleansing experience, has anti-inflammatory properties to calm sensitive skin. The buttery balm also has kasturi turmeric (a spice) to brighten skin. Use it with the accompanying exfoliating sponge, which is made from a root-based vegetable, for a thorough cleanse.
BOBBI BROWN NUDE FINISH ILLUMINATING POWDER IN GOLDEN, $83.
For an ethereal glow, swirl a brush over the various shades of bronze, gold and brown, then sweep it onto the cheekbones and chin. Bonus: the shades can double as shimmery eyeshadows.
TOM FORD BEAUTY CREAM COLOR FOR EYES IN SPHINX, $68.
Here’s why we endorse this burnished gold hue: it flatters almost every skin tone and lasts the entire night without creasing or fading. Our suggestion: apply it on the outer corners of the eyes for brighterlooking peepers.
MTG REFA PREMIUM, $1,800.
This luxe device coated with 24K gold mimics professional massage techniques, such as kneading, to stimulate the lymphatic system, encouraging the drainage of toxins and excess water, which can result in sluggish skin. It can be used on both the face and body.
