Top Ten Tuesdays – favorite gold products

top ten golds

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday. This week we are concentrating on the color GOLD. In my post you’ll see so many shades of gold that your head might spin. Well maybe not but it should be fun. I never used to be a fan of gold but I’ve grown to love it. It’s a sunny shade that is great year round. Here are some of my favorites.

Favorite Gold polishes

Favorite Gold polishes

1. Le Metier de Beaute All That Glitters – this is a true gold but it’s not streaky. It was part of holiday set. I still see the colors from the set popping up at eBay once in a while.

2. butter LONDON The Old Bill – this is a beautiful darker gold metallic. I love how this looks once on.

3. Orly Rage – Rage was originally a limited edition color from Orly but it sold so well that people clamored for it to become permanent and it is. It’s a gorgeous rose gold.

4. butter LONDON Champers – this is described as a rose gold shimmer. It’s similar to Orly Rage but lighter and longer lasting on me.

5. Dior Or Lumiere/Golden Light – Dior came out with this twice under two different names. Golden Light needs three coats to be opaque on me and even then it’s the subtlest of my choices.

Favorite Gold Eyeshadows

6. Armani Eyes to Kill #6 Khaki Pulse – yes it’s called Khaki but it’s got that Antique Gold thing going that I love

7. Laura Mercier Metallic Creme Eye Colour in Platinum – I’ve shown this before since I love this as a base. It brightens looks like no one’s business. It’s great on its own or as your eyeshadow base shade.

8. Diorshow Fusion Mono in Meteore – if you haven’t seen these shadows it’s time you did. They are all beautiful. They use a similar technology that Armani and Chanel use but the colors arent’ quite as complex. You are in for a gold treat with Meteore but it is sparkly so get out your dancing shoes.

9. L’Oreal Infallible in Eternal Sunshine – when you don’t want to spend the $$ on Dior, Armani or Chanel then head to L’Oreal for Infallible. It’s that same cream/powder hybrid. This is an exceptionally pretty yellow gold.

10. MAC Bare My Soul palette – sorry that this is LE but the antique gold in this is such a wonderful shade that I wear it all the time.

My Top Ten which will surely change one day but for now these are polishes and eyeshadows that I love to wear and plan on wearing often. Please visit the other Top Ten Bloggers by clicking their link and see what amazing products they are sharing. — Marcia



  1. Super list! I really like that butter London Champers nail polish! I will have to track that down for sure. LOVE the Armani ETKI shadow. I think I need to find that one too…if I can.

  2. That Orly Nail Polish is gorgeous.

  3. I think I’m going to go crazy looking at all the gorg golds I’ll want to buy now!

  4. How do I not own ANY of the gold polishes you have on your list? Except Orly Rage, of course I have that one!

  5. @A Girl’s Gotta Spa – I have the biggest shopping list of any Top Ten after reading these!

  6. @Melody – Rage by Orly would be gorgeous on you.

  7. @jbrobeck – I have polish you don’t?? I can’t believe it. The butter LONDON are amazing.

  8. @Pink Sith – I think butter LONDON knows how to do gold polish. And I always love the Armani shadows. I could do a top 20 list with Armani, Chanel, Dior and now Lise Watier.

  9. I love the polishes!

  10. I need Orly Rage–all the gold polishes are beautiful though. I looked for my L”Oreal Eternal Sunshine to add to my eye shadows and I couldn’t find it. It’s obvious where it was now though isn’t it?

  11. So many great polishes.

  12. *sigh* love me some Bare My Soul. Great, fabulous choices!!!

  13. @Brooke, MAC Bare My Soul is the best quad they’ve come out with in years. I now have a MAC store 10 minutes away so it will be easier when to test MAC out.

  14. @Teri, I’m terrible about polishes. I can’t stop buying them.

  15. Christine, I was at Ulta today and almost bought another gold polish but I have too many unused ones so I forced myself not to.

  16. @Cindy – I know the feeling of looking and not finding. I had others on my list that didn’t want to come out of hiding!

  17. That butter london, yum!

  18. I am loving the Dior fusion monos!

  19. I almost put that same Armani on my list. Love your choices!

  20. @Perilously Pale – I’m in love with the Dior too. I just wish they weren’t so sparkly. I still bought a lot of them though.

  21. @Carleen – Between Armani and Chanel I had so many to pick from. I love these textures.

  22. @Phyrra, we can say that about a lot of butter London. They have such pretty polishes. I now have Marbs after everyone raved about that one.

  23. Gorgeous collection of gold, Marcia. I’m loving that Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill. And the Butter London…? Well, that’s my absolute fave!

    Love gold, all year ’round, but especially as we move in the autumn months.

  24. What gorgeous golds! Thanks for reviewing them.

  25. Thanks so much @Kimberly. I thought of 10 more after the post was done!

  26. Thanks Lisa, Armani ETK are the prettiest e/s and it’s hard to pick one. Butter London goes unsaid!! There’s a sale right now on BL for discontinued shades (none of these though).

  27. LOVE your choices! 🙂

  28. I just love all those yummy looking colors!

  29. @Christina, thanks. I’m ready to do another top ten gold! I forgot so many.
