This season Dolce & Gabbana released a collection called Sicilian Jewels which, as you can guess, was inspired by jewels and Byzantine mosaics, and includes four Classic Cream Lipsticks (£27) and four Intense Nail Lacquers (£19), which are sold separately.
There are two warm toned shades: golden Topazio and green Emerald.
And two cool toned shades: lilacRead More

These are described as highly pigmented, non-greasy, vibrant and non-drying products. And here is a pretty interesting promo image of a model covered in bright fuchsia and with golden teeth. What do you think?

Recently it’s been all about red lips for me! I have been wearing red lipstick and nail polish at least several times per week. I actually have phases of red from time to time. Remember this post from not so long ago?
I love all my red lip products but have been loving these two lipsticks a lot lately. And I am pretty sure that you are not surprised.

I am not yet 100% sure about the foundation that will suit her the best. So far she liked this Bourjois one (shown on the photo). But if you have suggestions for a lady around 50 with dry skin, feel free to share. And thanks to everyone on Twitter for their recommendations!
Blush is a must have in a makeup bag of any girl, in my opinion, as it instantly changes the appearance. This Max Factor blush is one of my personal favourites and I know that it will look great on her, too. Will have to pick up another one soon, as I am giving away my personal one.
