Dolce & Gabbana Eyeliner: White & Lilac

Dolce & Gabbana Secret Garden: White Eyeliner

Dolce & Gabbana White Crayon Intense Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.054 oz.) will see the introduction of two new shades, White and Lilac from Dolce & Gabbana’s Secret Garden Collection, which should hit Saks counters and online soon.

  • White is exactly as it sounds–it’s a bright, creamy white and is one of the creamiest liners I’ve tested from Dolce & Gabbana’s range.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Eyeliners are hit or miss for me; they’re often too hard, so they lack enough creaminess to enable the eyeliner to apply smoothly and evenly. They don’t glide-on, and instead, they can tug on the lash line or skip when applied, which results in an uneven, splotchy look.

Note, however, that White didn’t have the poor texture that plagues many other Dolce & Gabbana eyeliners–it was very creamy and pigmented; it was easy to work with. This is why I don’t like to combine reviews, because unless a product line is very consistent, there can be enough variance that each product will earn a different grade–and this is exactly why I split this post into two separate ones, even though their content is very similar.

  • Product: 25/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

FINAL THOUGHTS: White looks rather stark on my medium skin tone, so I’m not sure what skin tone this would be ideal for–it is a very bright white, and could offer a lot of contrast for the right look. While it is creamy, I wouldn’t necessarily use it as an eyeshadow base. It wore for only six hours though, before fading away.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase this eyeliner? How much is it?

Saks, $29.

Is it limited edition?


Any dupes?

I don't own many white eyeliners, but I imagine White is similar to others. Lilac is close to Urban Decay Ransom.

    Wow, that white eyeliner looks good. I just bought a drugstore one from Max Factor and I’m not too happy. Which white eyeliners do u recommend?

  3. penelope

    It reminded me of the Urban Decay one, which I have not used as often since I purchased about 2 years ago because it does not go with many looks.

  4. Ricci

    The lilac is gorgeous.

  5. Pookie

    $30 dollars each for an eye pencil? That price is not cool. I love the colors

  6. Sally

    It’s nice it’s creamier than they normally are, but I’m one of those people who can’t spend the money on something so easily dupeable! I only use white eyeliner once in a blue moon, so for me, my NYX pencil is more than sufficient :]

    just curious, the colors seem so pretty. any chance they’d improve by warming slightly or applying them damp ie waterline? colors seem such a waste otherwise.

    That white liner takes me back to junior high! It was really in at my school in the late 90s, but my Revlon Street Wear white pencil only cost me a couple bucks.
