Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup

Cupid must moonlight as a cosmetics company exec because Dolce & Gabbana’s upcoming makeup for fall 2009 has his lovely fingerprints all over it.


The Romantic Collection’s pinks, blues and greens defy the typical autumn ensemble of smokey eyes, rich berries and dark lips, and when I saw these promotional pictures for the first time, I totes thought I was looking at a spring release.

The pinks in the 13-piece collection for eyes, lips and cheeks (available this September) range from subdued to bright and share the spotlight with a mix of other bright shades.

Soft and dreamy

In the look, colorful eyes smolder in silver, hot pink, bright blue and lime above lightly flushed cheeks and neutral, delicate lips.

I get a soft, almost ethereal vibe from the release that reminds me of the MAC A Rose Romance collection last spring.

Off to a promising start

As the face of Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up, actress Scarlett Johansson helped the Italian fashion house expand their portfolio into cosmetics earlier this year.

The luxury line for eyes, lips, face and nails carries prices in the Chanel/Dior range, so expect to pay a pretty penny — if you can find it. For now, the line’s only carried at two US Saks Fifth Avenue stores (New York and Beverly Hills) and

    2) the blush in Peach
    3) the eyeliner in Gold
    4) lipstick in Nude

  2. Lana says:

    I’m like Emma – I wouldn’t turn my nose up to all of it!

    I’d take the lipstick Naked 60,
    Luminous cheek colour,
    Nail colour 205,
    Crayon intense in Platinum,
    and Perfect Finish Foundation

    I’d take the foundation in a super, duper light shade. I’m so fair, I’m pretty well transparent!

    Have a good weekend, Karen!

      Hi Lana,

      Doesn’t it feel sometimes like finding the perfect foundation is a never-ending quest? I’ll take the foundation in a tan shade that’s not too pink and not too yellow, please!

      You have a great weekend, too. Got anything exciting lined up?

  3. Glosslizard says:

    Such eye candy! I’ll take the shadow duo in Rose 90, the nail lacquer in soft 205 (*drool*), the mascara (because the brush looks all bristly and awesome) and the lipgloss, because I lurve lipgloss!

    Hope you have some faboo weekend plans! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Hi Glosslizard,

      LOL! I buy mascara based on brushes sometimes, too. I have been going through a small brush phase … we’ll see how long it lasts.

      What are you doing this weekend? I’ve got a bunch of errands today (boo), but hopefully I’ll be able to sucker El Hub into watching a cheesy movie with me. Tomorrow my parents are coming over for brunch.

  4. Alexzandra says:

    I agree that the colors look really spring-y. Perhaps this is more of a resort collection than a fall collection ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Anyway, I really want:

    1)Crayon Intense in Platinum 6
    2)Volumized Lashes in Black 1 (the brush looks like it would separate well and wouldn’t deposit too much product – weighing down my lashes)
    3)Perfect Finish Powder Foundation
    4)Shine Lipstick in Naked 60

    • Karen says:

      Hi Alexandra,

      Platinum would look awesome on you! I can totally see you rocking it on the upper lash line with some false lashes.

      What are you up to this weekend?

  5. alice says:

    I love this collection. I’m actually sick of the fall=smoky & dark, and summer=bright colors. My eyes pop with bright shadows applied lightly, or gently worn with a dark, neutral color. There’s nothing pretty about dark winter clothing and overly lined, dark, smoky eyes.

  6. Glosslizard says:

    Not much going on this weekend, I need to hit Nordstrom for one more tee (in black, why didn’t I get the black one???) before the sale ends! Other than that, no plans. Maybe I’ll take the impies out to see a movie!

  7. Lina says:

    OMG thank you for posting this! I already have Naked and love it. I want that new blush, lipliner, soft l/s, baby l/g!

    I’m planning to go to Beverly Hills in a couple weeks and check the rest of the line out. I already have Naked/Perfection/Charm/Soiree/Velvet lipsticks, 3 e/s quads, 3 eyeliners and 1 blush and like the items so far.

  8. Marisol says:

    I don’t think that I have ever seen D&G make up in person. Of this collection, I would only get the e/s quad and the NP in Pink.

  9. Maggie says:

    1. Rose Eyeshadow duo
    2. Lipgloss in Baby
    3. Crayon Intense in Platinum

    ๐Ÿ˜€ They look amazing!
    .-= Maggie’s last blog post… Ideas, anyone? =-.

  10. Rachel says:

    Gorjus! I would get Lipstick in Soft and Nail Lacquer in Soft. I would also get the Eyeshadow Duo. Love the packaging.

  11. gio says:

    I’d get the Dazzling Quad and the Drama lipstick, they look beautiful!

    I like Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Baby and Intense Nail Lacquers in Soft 205. but I would really love to try their red lipstick which is not from this collection

  13. Louise Gray says:

    You are a devil to tempt me in this manner. But I have supreme will power. What I would get,if MINO (money is no object), would be the two soft products. The lip color titled soft and the matching nail color in soft. Both of those are very beautiful. I am thankful that there is no vendor close to me for those products would be calling to me. Buy me! Buy me! Buy me !

  14. Tavia says:

    I just love the colors from the Eye Colour Quad and also Intense Nail Lacquers in Pink.I’m just crazy about pinks in every season:)

  15. Alexandra says:

    I would buy
    the nail polish in pink
    cheek colour in delight
    lipgloss in baby
    and the eye colour quad

    The packaging looks very classy. Karen you need to get some just to put on tabs lol. You can tell he is a classy cat ๐Ÿ™‚
