Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014, and a Heads-Up About Possible Changes to Their Lipstick Line

Published in: Daily Photo

Dolce & Gabbana spring 2014

I was a picture-taking madwoman at Saks in the city last Friday afternoon. I must have taken 200 pics, including these of Dolce & Gabbana’s new spring collection…

Lots of golds, browns, peaches and pinks — nothing too crazy here — but I like the color choices.

Alex (hi Alex!), the makeup artist I spoke to there, said that almost everything in the collection is re-promoted from the permanent line. The only new pieces are the two lipsticks.

Also, secret squirrel FYI, but Alex mentioned that about half of the line’s lipsticks are going to be discontinued soon (sad face!). He didn’t say exactly which ones or when, but he said that several of the bolder colors will be replaced by nudes. I know that’s kind of vague, but just something to keep in mind if there are any shades you can’t live without. (Update as of March 13: I just heard from Dolce & Gabbana, and they won’t be discontinuing shades. They plan to add 20 shades with a revamped formula to the existing Classic Cream Lipstick line. Expect to see reds, pinks, nudes, oranges, purples and corals.)

The spring collection is available now at Dolce & Gabbana counters and online at saksfifthavenue.com.

    There must be some sort of top secret memo going around between brands to switch up all the lip colors to nudes. I feel like the typically bolder brands (Urban decay for example) are choosing to tone things down a lot lately.

    • Yeah, it seems that brands were aggressively trying to make bold lips happen for a few years, and now they’ve given up and accepted that most people favor nudes. Which is kind of a shame! I love wearing bright lipstick but hate that, outside the beauty blogosphere, it’s still a very unusual statement.

    The eyeliner in 18 Candied is so pretty! $30 is a lot to pay for an eyeliner pencil, but I’m adding this to my wish list anyway. Maybe someday I’ll splurge on it! 🙂

  12. Hah, now that is literally a handful of swatches 😀 I like what I’m seeing!

    What?! Replacing bright colours with nudes?! *sadface*

    (Mind you, I’m biased because I have yet to find a nude lipstick I don’t look terrible in, LOL)

    I like the sparkles in the lipsticks.I think $32 is a little high for a lipstick. Wonder if the discontinued lipsticks will be discounted?

  15. The quads looks gorgeous!
