The other day I popped by Saks Fifth Avenue to check out the newest Tom Ford beauty collection for spring-I'm obsessed with his super-edited ultra-modern-yet-somehow-still-classic color range and, well, you know how we feel about his fantastic nail polishes. One of Tom Ford's new launches for spring is a gold lip lacquer that the makeup artist at the countered demo-ed on me-without applying another color first! Gold lip gloss on naked lips? Indeed.
Much to my surprise, the gold Tom Ford lip gloss looked great-really warmed up my skin tone in this really subtle way, plus the sparkle is really pout-enhancing-even worn on its own, without a color underneath. So I started asking around and found that gold lip gloss is, like, a total thing this spring-tons of brands, in all different price ranges, have issued their own sparkling gold shine sticks this season. Check out some of my faves, above, and smudged, below.

There's really something for everyone-the CoverGirl WetSlicks gloss is a pink-gold and a little frostier than the other ones; the L'Oreal LeGloss is a golden darker hue (it looks a little darker in the photo than it does in real life); The Body Shop's Honey Bronze is the most perfect honey-amber shade and, while it's sparkly, it's not as full-on big sparkle-sparkle as some of the other ones; the Urban Decay Stardust is the sparkliest and sheerest of all the ones I tried, and the Tom Ford Lip Lacquer is the purest, creamiest, marbled gold.
Have you tried gold lip gloss? Do you wear it on its own or as an accent gloss on another color? Tell me which brands are you favorite!
