The iridescent purple and shimmery reddish copper of the Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eye Colour Duo in Blossom are so bright that they should have come with shades! Expensive ones ($36 for two shadows, oy vey!).

One of 10 powder eyeshadow duos in the company’s permanent line, Blossom lights up lids like a double rainbow all the way across the sky.


I used to love this show

These brights pack pigment worthy of a capital WHOA! But they aren’t just vivid; they manage to look soft at the same time.

With a good base (today I used Urban Decay Eden), Blossom also appears to stand the test of time. Almost 7 hours so far and the colors are still going strong. :)

      Hi Dani,

      I’m that way with certain reddish purples. When I wear them I look like I’ve been crying. I guess everyone has those certain colors, ya know?

    Speaking of udpp, I used it today when I copied your benefit look. Did my makeup about 12 hours ago and it’s still going strong after working and then standing outside for 2.5 hours in 95 degree heat after someone hit my car :(

      Hi Bisbee,

      I realize the look might not be for everyone, but I like to throw in things for the people who love their brights every once in a while.

      Have a great Friday!
