So ever since I experienced the gorgeousness of the D&G matte lipsticks I have had their makeup on my mind, so I am thrilled to show you the latest launch – Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine Collection for Summer 2015.

I love how D&G stay so true to its Italian roots and every experience of this brand congures  up exotic island life. I have been wearing the latest Light Blue and living in the isle of Salina every time I close my eyes!

So Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine Collection brings us an array of shades reminiscent of the “intertwining blue flowers painted on the white ceramics of Capri”.

Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine – The Face

So this is all about softly glowing, sunkissed skin – the kind of skin we all want – light and bright and luminous. The illuminator in Luna is a stunning yet subtle glow-giver that adds a beautiful light to the skin.

The blush in Apricot (an existing item) is the perfect summer, warming blush.

Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine – The Eyes

I am obsessed with this Brown Blush quad. It has a pink,  a nude and 2 brown shades for softly smoky eyes.

The duo, Summer Hue gives us a stunning contrast of sky blue and fuchsia. It sounds scary but is an incredibly beautiful combination.

Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine – The Lips

Wow so we have a brand new light blue lipstick. And this stands alongside 2 perfectly seasonal shades. Light blue is a iridescent pale blue with a semi-sheer finish. Shine on is a golden peach while Sheer is a poppy see-through red. So pretty!

I think Light Blue is for someone with perfectly prepped, smooth lips and a beautiful summer glow.

Dolce and Gabbana Summer Shine – The Nails

I have 2 of the four shades of nail colours. There’s the matching Sheer red (loving matchy matchy right now) and Peachy which is soft pastel orange. Light Blue is missing here, but it looks beautiful. There is also Nude Lilac and it looks incredible.
