Dolce & Gabbana's limited-edition Christmas make-up collection Sicilian Jewels


Dolce & Gabbana's majestic new make-up collection is about to jazz up your winter beauty bag - and we've been given a sneak peek at the inspiration behind the dazzling Christmas party range.

The limited-edition Sicilian Jewels collection, created in collaboration with renowned make-up artist Pat McGrath, features lipsticks and polishes inspired from precious gems such as emeralds, rubies, topaz and amethysts, resulting in luxurious and powerful shades of deep red, bright purple, dark green and luminous gold.

Largely inspired by the heavily-jewelled baroque and medieval creations seen stomping the D&G Autumn Winter '13 catwalks earlier this year, the luxurious beauty line-up features creamy, glossy lipsticks and high-pigment nail polishes with gem-like glows. Seriously cool.

'Matching your lipstick to your nail lacquer is a hot make up trend', Pat McGrath explained. 'We chose four new shades that showcase the theatrical and playful side of looking good: they are so shiny and special that they’ll be a perfect complement to any Christmas or New Year outfit. They can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewellery.'

We can't wait to get our hands on this hot little collection. Get ready to dazzle on the dancefloor...
