Dolce & Gabbana’s Sicilian Jewels Holiday Collection

This holiday season, the grand masters of glitz and glamour have launched a lipstick collection that is definitely creating a beauty buzz.  Makeup magician, and D&G Creative Advisor Pat McGrath fully acknowledges that jewel toned lip hues are far from the ordinary, but noted  “I think they’re just fun colors to wear if you go out at night, and then you can just try those crazy blues and greens and that’s a fun thing,” further stating “It really encourages you to wear braver lip tones and to have fun with lipstick.” Of the products, Stefano Gabbana admits that he and Domenico Dolce put gems on “accessories, corsetry, everything” and said that he believes jewels are “a symbol of power and passion.”

Long are the days of typical holiday collections, featuring a variety of reds, glitters, and golden dazzle. We’re gushing over this slightly over the top and different take on a beauty range. The 8-piece Sicilian Jewels collection consists of four new shades of their Classic Cream Lipstick, with its corresponding nail varnish. The lipsticks come in elegant gold casing, each set with a cushion-cut gem which of course matches the shade set on the cap, and are priced at $35 each. The shades are highly pigmented and true to the rich and luxurious gems such as red rubies, purple amethysts, green emeralds, and golden topaz.

Stop and take a look at the street style snaps from their busy city streets, and zero in on the girls wearing varieties of lip colors us Toronto girls know nothing of. It is now time to break the mold,and dawn a more Euro extravagance, no better time for change than the present!
