I nearly toppled over with excitement when I received a delivery with the above cougar-licious box of Dolce & Gabbana beauty goodies. The leopard print is an instant mood booster and the colors in the new makeup collection are in line with my current penchant for neutrals. The Eyeshadow Quad in Desert ($67) is my favorite. The shadows are velvety smooth and matte. I know the holiday season is all about shimmer, but polish/highlighter aside I’m in a neutral/matte, runway-inspired phase so these are perfect – especially because you can rely on the Animalier Bronzer ($57) to finish your look with a sun-polished glow. They’ve also got some new lipsticks ($34 each). I haven’t been wearing much lipstick lately, but tried these for texture and coverage and they glide on smooth while giving full coverage (how I wish I could pull off Iconic! Which on a side note is a lot more of a true vampy red than it appears on the Saks website).
