Dolce&Gabbana Beauty is out with a special Collector’s Edition of iconic makeup items, just in time for the Holiday 2014 season. Infused with signature themes at the heart of the Designers’ creative vision: The Iconic Red and The Ancient Coin.
I received several items to preview from the Collector’s Edition and they are truly beautiful. The star of the collection is the Glow Illuminating Powder in Eva ($51), with it’s classic red enamel case and The Ancient Coin insignia pressed into the tablet. The profile of the mythical Greek God Athena is found upon the coin. Athena represents wisdom, courage, civilization and intelligence–love! The Illuminating Powder is finely milled, with a micro-shimmer finish. This is not a “shimmery” effect; it’s much more subtle. The shade is what I would consider a ‘candlelight’ shade and one that would flatter nearly every skin tone.
Next, the Perfect Mono Cream Eye Color in Pure Gold ($36) has a creamy texture and long-wear formula. I first tried the Perfect Mono Cream Eye Color in the Fall Collection and it’s a winner. This gold is an eye-brightening neutral shade which would look great paired with just about any other color.
The perfect accessory is Intense Nail Lacquer in Lover ($25), a true red cream. If you’re looking for a holiday red nail, this is the one I’d recommend. It’s gorgeous! The shade is well-pigmented and should work with nearly every skin tone and definitely add a festive touch to holiday nails.
Also in the collection are The Shine Lipstick in the new Real Red shade ($33). The Glow Bronzing Powder in Desert ($51) is shown in the photo at the top.
The Dolce&Gabbana Make Up Collector’s Edition is available for a limited time only at select Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom and Macy’s locations. These are classic holiday colors done in a chic interpretation, as you’d expect from Dolce&Gabbana.
