Holy Mother and Joseph! I ain't turning into a religious soul now, but that was exactly what I was thinking when I saw the Dolce & Gabbana 'Sicilian Jewels' collection. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are taking the terms 'lipstick' and 'shades' to a whole new level. Aren't these colors to die for? And, before I forget... They're limited edition, which makes me even more anxious (because I need them, all of them).
The 'Sicilian Jewels' collection exists out of four colors, inspired by the luxurious gemstones amethyst (purple), ruby (red), emerald (green) and topaz (yellow). The designers got inspired by the jewels of their native Sicily and have been working with these materials on a steady basis. We all still remember that outrageous F/W '13 RTW runway collection, don't we? I know that these colors might be too much for most people - except for the ruby one, maybe - but how cool would it be to wear them during a Christmas dinner or New Year's Eve party? I'm thinking: an all black outfit and the hair pulled back into a tight pony tail. Make those lips pop, baby! You could even add a touch of eyeliner for an extra dramatic look.
What do you think? Amazeballs or even too much for a crazy, YOLO night out?
The Dolce & Gabbana 'Sicilian Jewels' collection is limited edition and will be available from 1st November.
The lipsticks come in golden tubes with your very own (fake, but that's not an issue here) gemstone on top.
If you weren't convinced earlier, you will be now. For the ladies who aren't ready to step out of their comfort zone and go outside with green lips just yet: the lipsticks all have matching nail polishes. The colors are definitely suited to make those nails all pretty and shiny, aren't they?
It's currently two in the morning as I'm writing this post, but I just had to share this make up collection with you. I'm so glad that I was right in time, since the collection will hit selected stores tomorrow. Now all I need to do is figure out which stores that will be in Belgium - or maybe the Netherlands - and if they'll be open, since it's a holiday here in Belgium tomorrow. Wish me luck!
