Confession time: I am a *teeny* bit obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana’s autumn makeup collection. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the summer collection and its bright pops of colour, but the fall lineup is just so wearable.

This season they’ve gone for a collection that’s all about the autumn colours of a Sicilian landscape. Everything feels very earthy, warm and cosy, offset by some luxe gold packaging that really gives it a high end feel.

I know I’m not alone when it comes to an out of hand addiction with nude eye shadow palettes, so the Enchanting Fall quad from D&G is a nice twist on the traditional, blending some soft green shades with a few of my favourite taupes and bronzes. It’s a palette that can be used to create lots of different looks but still falls well within my comfort zone, so it’s worked its way into my daily makeup bag with no trouble at all. There is some slight glitter fallout from the lightest shade, which is the only small negative point, but other than that, they are soft, buttery and a joy to blend.

The Orange blusher from the summer collection terrified me with its pigmentation, so it’s good to see a more wearable shade this season. Strawberry is a candy coloured pink which is a much more universal shade than Orange and one I know I will get a lot of use out of. Like last season’s shade, it’s packed with pigment, so start with a light hand and then work your way up if you need more intensity.

As hard as I try, I can’t pull off brown lipstick without looking like some sort of dreadful 90s corpse bride, so the Chocolate Shine Lipstick is a miss for me. If you have a warmer skin tone, it will look beautiful – it’s pigment rich with just a hint of a sheen to it and a decent hydrating base. I’ll definitely be looking for other shades in this formula to add to my lipstick collection that work a bit better for very fair skins.

Dolce & Gabbana beauty is largely stocked in Harrods in the UK, so a bit of a pain to track down, but I think it’s well worth a look. High end fashion houses seem to be making a ‘thing’ of launching their own makeup lines to go along with all the fragrances and for me, D&G and Burberry are two of the newer ones that do it incredibly well.

Prices start £21 for an eye liner and go up to around £44 for the eye shadow quads.

Have you tried any Dolce & Gabbana makeup before? What do you think of their Fall collection?
