Dolce & Gabbana Makeup

I hear this line has just launched at the Beverly Hills Saks (with the exception of the lipglosses which they are supposed to receive next month). Has anyone been able to check out this line in person? Thoughts?

I ordered a few items sight-unseen. I really like the texture of the shadows, especially the Contrasts Quad, the Champagne Quad is pretty boring, but the prices aren't making me love the line.

The lipsticks, left to right are:
Shine Lipsticks in Perfection, Naked, Soiree, Classic Lipstick in Velvet (all the shades I ordered have shimmer and a strong rose-scent)

Also not pictured, Stromboli Eyeliner lasted all day for me, but was a bit hard in texture and needed some warming up in my hand. I am dying to try the glosses. Anyone have pics?

I want so badly the Nude lipstick! I'll wait when I go to London to buy it.

I have 3 lipglosses. They're OK, not so good as Illmasqua's lipglosses, but better than most. The only problem is the scent (at least for me it too strong)

D&G Lipgloss Nude:




D&G Lipgloss Seduction:



I need to make a swatch of "Glossy".

Whew... I just bought The Foundation and I am BLOWN.AWAY! This is the best cream foundation I've ever used... EVER. You use such a small amount to get the job done, and the coverage and finish are to DIE for! Love it.

I have the Champagne quad. Not a fan. The colours are a bit sheer and they don't seem to wear very well - even with a base. I like the lipsticks and lipglosses though. I love the lipstick in Nude and the Lipgloss in Honey.

I've never used any of their eyeshadows. Thanks for the heads up! I have a couple of their lipsticks, and I am just head over heels about the foundation. I will try the lip glosses next. I also want to try the nail polishes.

Yeah, if there's anything that's a miss from their line, it's definitely the eyeshadows. I think most people who wrote reviews about the quads were basing it off of first impressions only. What cheeses me off most about the quad is that it doesn't wear well at all, no matter what base is used.

That's no good. I don't even like USING a primer regularly with eyeshadows... so I'd be really upset if the shadow didn't perform with the additional help of a primer. Check out their foundation. I love it. That and the lipsticks are must haves for me.

I may get a sample. I'd buy it but I can't think of a single place which carries D&G and has an acceptable return policy for me.

Yeah, the return policy is KEY... especially with cosmetics. I don't buy from anyone where it's going to be a hassle... just in case.

Hi, I hope one of you ladies can give me some advice. I just got a bunch of makeup of ebay including a D&G powder foundation and I'm not sure if its legit or a fake. My reasons for thinking it's a fake are that the case is really light thin plastic and the powder has a LOT of shimmer and I didn't think that it had any shimmer at all. It's got more shimmer than one of my MAC MSFs!

How is the casing supposed to feel? Is it light of does it have some weight to it. And if the current foundation doesn't have shimmer is there an older version that does and I've been sent that? I want to find out as much as possible before I contact my seller. Thanks!

My powder foundation is surprisingly light. Also, there's no shimmer at all. I think you might have a fake on your hands, unfortunately.

Thanks Shontay. I can get my head around the lightness but it's as I thought the shimmer isn't right for the foundation. In fact looking around I think it's the Eva Illuminator inside a compact foundation. I hate fighting with ebay sellers. Thanks again.

The case is not light plastic either. It's got some density and weight to it... it feels expensive.

What happened to this line?

I didnt hear anything about them for a while. I would like to try a few products, they seem to have gorgeous blushes but there is literally almost no coverage of this brand on any blog.
Sabrina used to cover them but looks like she is not buying them anymore.

Does anyone has experience with their quads, duos or blushes? I have a counter nearby but never stopped over there (because Burberry counter is right next to it
)

I only have one piece from D&G so far. I have Cosmopolitan lipstick. It's a gorgeous orange/coral color. It's so creamy and opaque that I usually end up blotting so that I don't have so much product on my lips. The one downside to it is the awful smell. It's so strong, like perfume. It's more repugnant than Chanel and MUFE. It takes time to settle down and the taste can get into your mouth. I have to be careful when applying it to avoid that. I just ordered one of the Monica Bellucci lipsticks, but it's the coral that's on pre-order. I hope to get it in a few weeks. I'm tempted to buy another color just because I want to see what they're about right now, but I can't decide on a color. That's the problem when you already own so many lipstick colors and formulas.

Shontay!

I am tempted by the MB ls.. I am going for the Euro slutty look now anyway.. ha.

I do have some blushes (neutrals) and also some of the nude ls.. from a few seasons back but I found them lacking in pigmentation. hope this has changed.
