We’ve been obsessed with this summer’s Olympic Games and we’re happy to see that others in our industry have been equally infatuated. The beauty industry regularly draws inspiration from real life and this summer many cosmetics companies have used the Olympics as their newest influence to drive their creativity. Celebrate in style with these products specifically curated for the 2012 games. In these collections you will see how companies have paid homage to medal colors, the London Underground and London icons.
Butter London: The Heavy Medal Collection
Butter London’s Heavy Medal Collection features three metallic colors that will be stylish long after the Olympics are over. The bronze, silver and gold polishes are sure to be a hit and promise to deliver all of the quality and flair that the other Butter polishes.
Molton Brown: The Limited Edition MMXII Collection
London based Molton Brown is rooting for the home team with an entire limited edition collection in commemoration of the Olympics. The MMXI collection includes a body wash, hand wash and a unisex fragrance. The unique blend of ingredients like sweet orange and zesty grapefruit in the hand wash and hot black peppercorn and coriander in the body wash ensures that these are unlike any other you’ll come across.
Illamasqua Liquid Metal Eyeshadow in Phenomena, Enrapture and Electrum
These colors may have not been created exclusively for the olympics but we love how perfectly they fit with the games. You may not be an Olympian but these rich and highly pigmented cream shadows will help you steal the spotlight.
SLEEK Glory iDivine Palette
Sleek is a UK brand that is available to order in the United States. They released a few limited edition products for the Olympics but this palette is by far the best. Rather than solely using the medals as an influence, Sleek uses the London Underground as inspiration for bright and colorful eyeshadows. Why not celebrate the host city with vibrant shadows named for underground lines like Tube, Piccadilly, Circle, Victoria and Jubilee?
OPI: The Man with the Golden Gun 18k Gold Topcoat
Who can forget this year’s remarkable opening ceremonies which featured two of England’s most iconic people side by side: The Queen and James Bond. We consider James Bond the epitome of English gallantry and sophistication and are more than happy to feature him on this list. True, this collection doesn’t come out until later this year and isn’t exclusively for the olympics either but we are still in awe of this new addition to the OPI family.
Sephora by OPI in USA, USA
Show your support and cheer for Team USA with this topcoat for Sephora by OPI. The subtle flecks of red, white and blue glitter give you a patriotic touch without going overboard.
