The new Monica Lipstick Collection by Dolce&Gabbana Make Up was inspired by sultry Italian film-star Monica Belluci and expresses confident femininity in every gorgeous shade. Read on for more…

The glamour and passion of Monica Bellucci is expressed through the collection, which celebrates her most alluring qualities; naming each of the lipsticks with the adjectives the designers most frequently use to compliment their muse: Magnetic Monica, Only Monica, Natural Monica, Italian Monica, Chic Monica and Attractive Monica.

Pat McGrath, Creative Advisor to Dolce&Gabbana Make Up, searched for different shades that embodied these adjectives perfectly. “The shades are those of classic Italian film stars,” says Pat, who chose ‘Attractive Monica’, an iconic cardinal red to convey the mood of the advertising campaign.  “This collection of shades perfectly embodies Monica’s sensuality and powerful allure,” says Pat.

The shades I have are (from left to right, above) 80 Only Monica, 60 Natural Monica and 120 Magnetic Monica.  The lipsticks are very pigmented and wear like a dream.  The shades are so flattering, that there even in a collection of six shades, almost everyone should be able to find one that works.

I really thought I would gravitate toward the “safe” Natural Monica, but once I started wearing them,  Magnetic Monica became my favorite. Based on what I saw at Fashion Week, these shades will work with the rich colors and textures of the upcoming Fall season.

The Monica Lipstick Collection by Dolce&Gabbana Make Up ($32 per shade) is now available at select Saks Fifth Avenue locations nationwide.  Check out the video!
