Dolce & Gabbana Ruby Collection Blush in Peach: The Pit in This Peach Is a Beautiful Jewel

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

If it weren’t for Dolce & Gabbana’s new $55 Ruby Blush in Peach, I’d feel (and kinda look) like a long lost member of the Village People in this coat.

One of seven limited edition pieces in Dolce & Gabbana’s new holiday 2011 collection (coming soon), the matte peachy pink blush evokes a timeless elegance more fitting of shift dresses, structured pocketbooks and patent-leather high heels than faux furs, feathers and Y.M.C.A.

Can’t you just see it with a crisp cat eye and a rich red lip?

SWOON! :)

The Dolce & Gabbana Ruby collection for holiday 2011 includes…

(Full reviews and pretty pictures coming soon!)

  • Ruby Lipsticks in Devil 220, Scarlett 195, Ultra 190, Ruby 180 and Iconic 210 ($37 each)
  • Ruby Eyeshadow in Femme Fatale 100 ($75)
  • Ruby Blush in Peach 20 ($55)

Dolce fans might recognize the packaging; it’s the same bejeweled compact from last year’s lovely Lip Jewels. Sure, it tacks $11 on top of Dolce’s already hefty $44 blush price, but it sure is an unmistakeable design.

Gaudy? Maybe, yeah, a little, but I think it’s gorgeous. Like a piece of art resting on a makeup counter (and almost as spendy).

That $55 price would buy a lot of tacos…but tacos can’t deliver a natural flush like this does. Peach is a splurge that has “I hit the pan” written all over it. :)

I think it’s also really easy to dress up or down, and the powder is so finely milled that it couldn’t be a whole lot easier to apply. Seriously, blending? What’s that?

PRICE: $55
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to select Saks Fifth Avenue stores and saksfifthavenue.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (it almost costs as much as jewelry!)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    This color is gorgeous! Undecided about the packaging but if the product inside performs well then I don’t mind.

    Pretty shade, but $55 could buy a lot of feather cat teasers!

    Not feeling that compact, too bulky. But the blush is pretty on you. I like your fur collar jacket too!

  8. Tracey says:

    Beautiful shade and apparently the blush contains Peach Extracty which gives it that glowing look to the skin. Bella!

  9. Carmela says:

    I honestly think that if your tacos have enough spice, they might give you that natural flush you’re after. Although I doubt it’ll look anything but pretty with sweat dripping down your brow and crazy eyes. :P

    While it’s a gorgeous shade (and so pretty on you!), I do think the packaging is on the tacky side and doubt I’d drop $55 for something I’d prefer to de-pan.

    the packaging is gorgeous… i love the huge red stone in the middle! the blush is pretty as well!

  11. Selina says:

    Beautiful color, but ouch! That is a lot of tacos. I’m intrigued by the Femme Fatale eyeshadow ( I have a thing for film noir), but I don’t think I could bring myself to spend 75 on eyeshadow.

  12. G O R G E O U S on you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is too much for my budget though!
