Should you ever find yourself under doctor’s orders to refrain from wearing eye makeup “for a day or two” while your allergies subside, and you’re kind of a beauty nerd, you may also find yourself debating whether filling in your brows constitutes “eye makeup.”
I came to the conclusion that it does not…
I KNOW! But I couldn’t resist doing at least a little something.
My eyes don’t seem to mind, and they’re certainly enjoying gazing at three of the bright, shiny lipsticks from the new Dolce & Gabbana Summer Pleasures collection.
These $34 beauties, three of 10 new Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipsticks, are available now at Saks stores and saksfifthavenue.com (there are also five Nail Lacquers in the collection priced at $20 each).
The 10 new shades range from summery, soft nudes to bold, glamorous brights.
Clockwise from the dark shade in the lower left: Royal 110, Exotic 50 and Tropical 140
Dolce & Gabbana’s Gloss Fusion Lipsticks are among my favorite products in the entire line. Each has a shiny, moisture-filled core of gloss wrapped in a rich coat of pigmented lipstick.
I remember when they first made a splash on Dolce & Gabbana counters… Oh, the intense colors, the high-gloss finish, the texture so smooth it would give Ryan Gosling a run for his money.
As for the three new colors I’ve been ogling this morning? Just as fab.
Swatches from the left: Royal 110, Tropical 140 and Exotic 50
Flirty and fun Exotic 50 is my favorite of these. I mean, how do I say no to a hot pink lipstick? That may be something I’m physically incapable of doing…
Vivid orange Tropical 140 runs a close second. I can see it going well with tropical print maxi-dresses, beautiful beach resorts and yummy umbrella drinks.
Like the Passion Duos in the permanent line, these also have a light rose flavor and scent, and a super moisturizing, non-sticky formula. So much fun — especially if you want to play up your lips.
You’re almost there!
This week has been a little challenging so far, and I think even Tabs can’t wait for the weekend.
