I was so lucky to get the kind of sunshiney day that this collection deserves yesterday – you can feel the heat coming off it! The Dolce & Gabbana Summer In Italy Collection has such a good vibe – there’s so much colour that together forms an image of the vibrancy and warmth of the Mediterranean, but each piece can hold its own as a single product. Above are the Perfect Monos (£25) in new shades Turqouise and Lemon alongside the existing Indaco.

In terms of eye lining, the Khol Pencil in Peacock (£19.50) is existing, as is Crayon Intense in Blue (£19.50), but Glam Liner in Cyclamen (£25) is brand new (also shown in Peacock, existing).

I love Cyclamen!

This is a brand new eye and cheek product called Shimmer Powder (even though it is a creme) in Star Shine. It has a golden lustre to it and it’s very twinkly. Of all the new product from the collection, this is the one I’d personally avoid – such glittery cheeks are difficult to wear I think although it would look gorgeous as a wash of shimmer on lids. It’s £25.

I think I was too heavy handed in the swatch – the product is butter soft so, as I learned, you only need to pass your shadow brush over the top to pick up the shimmer.

These lipsticks literally had me smiling. They’re just joyful colours and the pigment is high with a sheeny, juicy finish. In fact, that’s a common theme with all of D&G beauty – definitely not shy on pigment at all.

The shades are Cyclamen (new), Venere and Orange (new). They’re £25 each. Although I don’t think you ever need to peer over the £20 mark for a lipstick (or anywhere near it, to be honest), these really do feel special and spot on for summer.

It’s a similar story of heat saturated colour for nails, too. In the picture you can see Cyclamen, Orange and Turquoise although there is a yellow one as well. All of these are new shades and they’re £19.50 each. I have already earmarked Turquoise for my toes when I go away for a few days in May.

Or, maybe Cyclamen!

The final piece to show you is a brand new blush shade in Orange. It’s £31.50 which makes me wince, BUT, having used it today, you virtually only need whisper your brush over it because the pigment is a-mazing! With such a tiny amount needed, I can see this lasting more or less a lifetime.

I’ve swatched it here next to the Sicilian Bronzer from yesterday’s post (it’s £36). The bronzer is the obvious star of the show, but I think the blush is the secret scene stealer. The collection launches 1st May at Harrods.
