Dolce&Gabbana summer 2015 swatched
I have to say up front, I’m not a big fan of Dolce&Gabbana make up quality. Their products a lot of the times just don’t work for me. The shades and design and everything is nice, but I find quality simply not to up to the mark. So, from their summer collection this year I only picked up three items. Let me explain why.
They have a bunch of shades out for summer 2015 that are all bronze and stuff. I can’t even tell you, how fed up I am with bronze summer shades 🙂 It’s just so awfully BORING. Bronze is everywhere. Even in collection names. Yes, I AM talking about Bronze Goddess by Estee Lauder 🙂 I know, I know, bronze shades look nice in summer, but c’mon, can’t there be something else to release in luxury collections? It seems, everyone should have enough bronze shades to last them for the next ten years at least. Well, guess what, there is something different this year.
And that’s actually what I do like about Dolce&Gabbana make up. It’s just so wonderfully spectacularly wacked sometimes 🙂 So artsy, so haute couture, so catwalk like. Remember the green lipstick from Christmas 2013? 🙂 This summer Dolce and Gabbana is into blue. So, here are three blue items I couldn’t pass on.
First we have a duo eyeshadow palette Smooth eye colour duo 104 Summer Hue.
In it we have two shades – light blue and bright pink.
Both are matt. There’s no shine or shimmer of any kind to them. It’s weird, man 🙂 And, in my opinion, it makes both shades or a combination of them hard to wear in real life.
But the shades are clear, and the eyeshadow is smooth and applies nicely. Check out the swatches.
If you’re aroma and smell sensitive, beware! This eyeshadow smells like paint, to be more precise, like water colour paint. At least, that’s what it smells like to me. It’s a strong smell too. It feels like Dolce&Gabbana have no problem with really strong aroma in their make up product. Now, I’m smell sensitive, and I’m just unable to wear a lot of products from their range because of the absolutely overpowering smell. This eyeshadow duo is no exclusion to this quite unfortunate rule.
Next there’s a bright blue nail polish. Or else turquoise. 717 Light Blue.
Don’t be deceived by the name of this shade. It’s not pale and not blue 🙂 It’s a bright turquoise cream shade, the kind that’s so popular in summer and gets released almost every summer by, at least, some luxury brands. The shade is great. Love it.
Now let’s talk about the downside – quality! Even with the new formula of nail polish, that got released by Dolce&Gabbana not so long ago, almost nothing changed. Their nail polish is too thick and application is really challenging. I don’t like the quality. Hate it, in fact. It’s such a pity.
Last but not least, here it is, the most weird and most gorgeous accordingly product of the collection. Shine Lipstick 185 Light Blue (remember me talking about the green lipstick back from 2013? I wasn’t just making chitchat with you there, but had a purpose for what’s coming :-)) Well, here the name is well picked. The lipstick is light blue. So Dolce&Gabbana 🙂
It’s an uncompromising shiny blue. It’s not one of those lipsticks that looks blue in the tube and is then pink on the lips. No. It is blue.
Once again, impossible to wear in real life, but gorgeous. I’m impressed. It’s just so out there. It’s nice when someone is brave enough to be different. This lipstick made me think, if Dolce&Gabbana keep going like that, I’ll soon have a perfect Halloween luxury make up wardrobe 🙂
P.S. Here’s a little bit of a cloud in the whole blue lipstick silver lining 🙂 The smell!! It’s strong. To me, it’s overpowering. I rarely wear Dolce&Gabbana lipsticks for this very reason. If you’re sense sensitive or allergic, please, be careful.
