I just checked on the Nordstrom’s wesite and I couldn’t find this collection. Do you know if it was available or will be available in the near future? Saks is sold out.

Tempting– would love to see a swatch of the lipstick. Looks to be a warm red with maybe a touch of brown– though impossible to say for sure. I have some D + G lippies and really like them.

I have been watching for these to arrive in US because the packaging and pattern looks beautiful. Saks has them online, but the powders are $68. Would have been more attractive at the price in release note. Bronzer looks a tad orange but may try the highlighter.

These are beautiful! Too bad they’re already sold out at Sak’s :/. They’re also listed as being slightly more expensive there, but that could just be Sak’s. Either way these look like great pieces for someone wanting to introduce themselves to the D&G beauty line.

I recently bought some of the D&G Bronzers and this Highlighter during Sephora’s VIB sale (I’ve wanted to try them for awhile. They weren’t the LE holiday versions but the same colors, Desert and Eva (make sense?) I was REALLY unimpressed with the formulas. Both had poor color payoff and quickly faded on my skin. The bronzer BARELY showed on my NW15 complexion, just a heads up… it’s light. And the highlight had so visible sheen that I could see. It was just a chalky powder with some gold glitter. Needless to say I returned them and the employees at Sephora asked to check them out (they hadn’t seen them before). They swatched them a couple times and then made sad faces LOL! I still might get one for the design… but don’t take a brush to them. They’re too pretty AND they aren’t that great. My two cents x

I’ve had issues with the D&G beauty line as well, unfortunately. I bought a few shades of the Monica lipsticks since they looked so appealing; big mistake. The formula had too much slip and settled straight into natural lip lines, was so drying that I couldn’t leave it on for more than 20 minutes, and was fragranced so heavily that you could smell it a few feet away. Definitely don’t recommend them.
Apparently people have had issues with the majority of their lip products. I had thought about giving the brand a second shot and indulging in the face products, but if you say they aren’t worth it I’ll trust you :).

Don’t you hate it when you REALLY WANT to love a beauty brand but they make it SO HARD!

I don’t mind bronzers without a ton of color – I’m so fair skinned anyway – but they should at least wear more than an hour or two. I had to build and build these to the point of looking all caked just to get them to show 🙁 I was a sad, sad man. But the compacts are REALLY pretty! LOL!

Oh same here on the D&G Monica lippies- not good at all. Really irritated my lips and I bought 3 different shades. The nude leaning shades were awful. Maybe the reds will be better. Not trying them tho!

Interesting that you experienced that with the Desert colored bronzer. That one looks nice on my NW20 skin and I’ve not had any issues with it. I prefer that a bronzer be a bit less pigmented so I can build up the color, because ones that are too pigmented are too hard for me to control and end up looking fake. The Desert built up nicely and it was a keeper for me.

Oooh, more red and gold, my fave colors !! The Burberry Winter Glow collection was a bust for me, so let’s see if D&G is going to bust my budget. Hope you are doing some reviews, please, please?

I was really tempted by the bronzer or illuminator but the only store that has them yet is Saks and they are listed at $68 🙁
$51 sounded so much better… but seemed a little low compared to the rest of the line to be honest.

I love the old coin embossing. The outside packaging is very nice, too. I’ve very much liking the product colors. The shimmery golden colors with the red lipstick will look wonderful.
