Ramping up the luxe factor for Holiday 2011, the Dolce&Gabbana Precious Stones Collection takes it’s inspiration from the opulent Autumn/Winter fashion collection.  Read on for more…

The Autumn/Winter collection, with it’s rich jewel colours and embellished textures, was the perfect backdrop for make-up creatrice Pat McGrath.  She raided the designers’ jewel box unearthing a haul of sumptuous shades and textures inspired by the precious stones and gem colors seen on the catwalk.  And what a collection it is!

The Dolce&Gabbana Precious Stones Collection includes:

Smooth Eye Colour Duo in Gems, $36

Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Jewels, $59

Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Imperial Topaz, $29

Luminous Cheek Colour in Mauve Diamond, $44

Classic Cream Lipstick in Purple Pearl and Plum Sapphire; Shine Lipstick in Mauve Diamond $30

Ultra-Shine Lipgloss in Pink Sapphire and Pink Diamond, $29

Precision Lipliner in Rose Pearl, $30

The Intense Nail Lacquer in Grey Pearl and Amethyst, $20

The 411:  I haven’t seen all of the pieces in person, but I did have the opportunity to try out the Smooth Eye Colour Duo in Gems and Luminous Cheek Colour in Mauve Diamond.  Either of these pieces would easily work into your existing makeup collection.

The colors in the Gems Smooth Eye Colour Duo are beautiful–silky, pigmented color.  I could see wearing these colors every day and never getting tired of them.  The Luminous Cheek Colour in Mauve Diamond is another good investment.  The shade of this blush is universally flattering and gives your face a beautiful flushed look without being too much.  One of the prettiest blushes I’ve seen in any of the Fall or Holiday Collections.

The Dolce&Gabbana Precious Stones Collection for Holiday 2011 is available at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores and at Saks.com.
