Dolce & Gabbana Tropical Spring

Wow! When Dolce & Gabbana say tropical, they really mean it. The inspiration for the collection is – tropicals, obviously, but lush and vibrant colours that thrive in heat and sunshine. I’m definitely getting that vibe from it – just shove a hibiscus in my hair and I am THERE!

Starting off with the Eyeshadow Duo in Tropical Coral – I hardly know where to start with this but I know that I want to! There’s a big trend on a red-eye look; this one steers slightly orange but when all is said and done, it’s a red shadow with a pinky peach satin partner. I was going to say I think you need to be warm toned for this, but Tilda Swinton popped into my head so I’ll revise that to say it’s for anyone adventurous! The visual I have uses it as a light wash in the crease with the paler shade being dominant on the lid. Maybe that’s the thing – a little in the right place is what makes it work.

Next up is the Eyeshadow Duo in Tropical Pink. It’s definitely more purple than pink, although a baby pink with a lilac edge sits beside it. Again, I don’t know where to start with this – it’s so bold and challenging and I really need to see some looks with these colours before I’m convinced! I don’t have a price list for this collection yet but duos are usually £34.

A new blush in Tropical Coral is super pigmented and bright. It’s really similar to another D&G blush I had (and now can’t find!) and you need to literally whisper your brush over it for plenty of pigment. It just takes the tiniest amount to put a warm rouge onto your cheeks.

Tropical Pink Blush is a kind of bubblegum pink with a little more depth. If you can do pink blush, it’s an easy wear – rosy and pretty and pretty much goes with everything. D&G Blush is usually £34.

There are two new Passion Duo Lipsticks – Tropical Coral (it still looks red to me!!) and Tropical Pink. As you’ll see in the swatch, the central core is a colourless balm – it’s a lip comfort element rather than a colour addition. It’s pictured here existing shade lipstick in Tease.

In this swatch, bottom to top: Tropical Coral Blush, Tropical Pink Blush, Tropical Pink Passion Duo and Tropical Coral Passion Duo. These are so smooth and creamy on application.

I don’t as yet have a launch date for this, but I’ll fill in the blanks when I get all the extra information.
