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?
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?
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to select Saks Fifth Avenue stores and saksfifthavenue.com
