Dolce & Gabbana AW 2013 (Jason Lloyd-Evans)
Ready to get in the Christmas spirit? We are. Ever since Dolce & Gabbana’s Christmas beauty offerings landed on our desks a few weeks ago we’ve been swooning big time and simply cannot wait to fill up our make-up bags for the festive season. There’s just something about this stellar collection which has got us beauty ladies seriously excited about Christmas! Literally designed to be worn as jewels, the brand new (and limited edition) Sicilian Jewels collection features lipsticks and nail varnishes inspired from precious gems such as emeralds, rubies, topaz and amethysts. The result? A dazzling and super-luxurious range of exotic shades- with everything from deep red to purples, dark greens and gleaming golds there really is something for everyone and every LBD. We’re sold! What’s more, with their gem-like glows, the nail colours (and matching lipsticks) are just so shiny and gorgeous that you won’t even need jewellery- trust us.

Inspiration for the gorgeous new collection came from Dolce & Gabbana’s AW shows- think flashes of baroque, golden fabrics, decadent gem-laden jewellery and bedazzling hair pieces. What’s more, the range was created in collaboration with make-up artist Pat McGrath who certainly knows a thing or two about looking drop-dead gorgeous. Pat is clearly head over heels about the collection too, saying, “All of the Sicilian Jewels looks are fabulous! A couple are a little more dramatic, but for me that’s why the collection is so much fun to use. For make-up lovers, this is simply the must-have collection to really stand out during the holiday season. When it comes to the nail lacquers, you can mix and match, just go with whatever you are feeling that day. Ruby with Emerald, Topaz with Amethyst – the choice is yours.” Want to know more?
