“A storm’s brewin’…”
I always wanted to say that. Storms are brewing within Dolce & Gabbana’s new $30 Graphite pencil — a rain cloud of a blackened gray liner for lash and water lines, and my new gunmetal gray liner love.
There’s something almost meteorological about this deep, dark gunmetal… Micro flecks of shimmer dance along its surface like little lightning sparks.
It’s quite the Gothic scene, too, like a sweet lace dress with black leather cuffs and spikes — the perfect marriage of delicate and dangerous. Classic with an edge. Kittens with claws.
Smooth like a long board riding a glassy wave, the soft pencil glides along the skin, leaving deep blackened chrome gray lines in its wake (smudge ’em for a smokey look) that last 4-5 hours on my lash lines, 5-6 on my water lines.
I’m partial to wearing it with golds, beige and brown shades, where it kicks those neutrals up a notch.
AVAILABILITY: Available now with the rest of the True Monica summer collection at Saks Fifth Avenue stores and online
