Usually when you think of holiday collections you think Christmas-y colors mixed in with a lot of sparkly silver and golds. Apparently Dolce & Gabbana doesn't feel that holiday colors shouldn't be traditional which is what their newest makeup collection isn't. Dolce & Gabbana's newest collection called the Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Jewels makeup collection is actually centered around jewels. The color inspiration for this collection comes from precious gems like rubies, emeralds, topaz and amethysts. The great thing about this collection is that the jewel tones aren't for your eyes, but instead for your lips and nails.
In the Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Jewels makeup collection you will find amethyst, a bright purple, emerald a deep and lucent green, ruby, a deep rich red and topaz an amberish yellow gold all for your nails and lips. Yes, it may sound strange to think of rocking yellow or green lipstick but why not? For decades women have been blending their lipstcks to make new shades and with these new colors there's no reason why they can't be used to bring an unexpected pop to your lipstick wardrobe.
'I love jewels; they are a symbol of power and passion,' said Stefano Gabbana. 'I love how they reflect the light: that’s why they have always been part of our collections since the very beginning. We adorn with gems our accessories, our corsetry, everything, like in our latest winter collection, which is the ultimate expression of what jewelry means for us.'
'The effect is both elegant and fun—the packaging gives them the feel of 'play' lipsticks you might have had as a kid. D&G creative adviser Pat McGrath says the shades reflect this duality, too: “They can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewelry.'
As you would expect from products from Dolce & Gabbana the colors are rich and luxe just like the gems that they represent. Each of the lipsticks come packaged in a gold tube with a gem that matches the color of the lipstick and are priced at $35 each as well as the Dolce & Gabbana Intense Lacquers in this collection.
The collection was just released on Nov. 1 and can be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue in the US and online as well.
