Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo and Perfect Finish Xx

I have to say that Dolce and Gabbana has to be 
some of my favourite make up - the vibrant colours, 
the luxurious make-up itself and the gorgeous golden packaging 
- it is just the BEST!! Xx

Today September 1, the lovely Domenico and Stefano 
have launched two fantastic products,
available exclusively at Harrods

Here I am with Klaudia S at the Harrods Dolce 
and Gabbana counter who did my make up using 
Caramel 110 Perfect Finish Foundation, Intrigue 150 Passion Duo Lipstick,
the incredible Golds eyshadow quad, and the 
new Secret Eyes Mascara - Klaudia is ace with the eyeliner 
(as you can see on her) so I looked fab - I loved my make up.

All the girls on the counter are fantastic 
including Maggie so ring Harrods ask for the Dolce and Gabbana 
Counter and book yourself in for a makeover with the new products Xx
0207 730 1234


From L to R: Sensation 20, Infatuation 190, Intense 120 and Dazzle 240
all £24 each
Exclusively at Harrods

Passion Duo is an Amazing Gloss Fusion Lipstick.  
A Rich Cream Lipstick with  Satin Gloss at its core. 
 So easy to apply. They come in 20 incredible shades 
their exquisite beauty is inspired by roses 
in a sicilian rose garden - the colours to choose from
 - nudes to browns; reds to oranges; pinks to mauves - 

Passion Duo reflects the 'ardour of two passionate souls' 
and is a 'faultless slick of lipcolour and shine' - there you have it.

‘We like to compare the tantalizing effect of PASSION DUO 
to that created by the ardour of two passionate souls,’ 
says Stefano Gabbana. ‘It is all at once joyful and 
expressive with the innate sensuality associated with the
Mediterranean temperament, something we strive 
to represent in each of our creations.’

Adds Domenico Dolce: 'It was imperative that 
we created a product that met a woman's need 
for depthless intensity of colour
but which offered a unique, unprecedented dimension 
that is as exciting as she is. For the Dolce and Gabbana woman, 
never predictable; always inimitable, we offer her 
PASSION DUO: a sensorial delight like no other before.'

The perfect fashion colour - Intense 120 £24

‘PASSION DUO really does offer a sensational
 proposition for high impact lips, and it achieves 
an effect that is truly distinctive,’ says make up 
artist Pat McGrath. ‘I adore the adaptability of the 
product; for me it’s really important to
be able to use a product that offers high shine 
and great moisture but has that amazing density
 of colour usually only found in a cream lipstick.’


Perfect Finish - Dolce & Gabbana's new Creamy Foundation
 gives 'coverage alongside natural glow'.
 You can apply for a semi-transparent finish with a
 dampened sponge or with the new
Dolce & Gabbana Foundation brush 
with small even circles for a 
perfectly professional finish.

“A woman’s face is a reflection of her innermost self, 
the key to her soul. We have dreamt of the perfect 
beauty of a woman whose perfect complexion exudes radiant, 
flawless splendour in Sicily. Now we have the opportunity to offer
this dream to all Dolce and Gabbana women,” says Stefano Gabbana.

Adds Domenico Dolce, “A woman’s complexion 
must be treated with proper care and respect; 
it is her single most valuable asset. Effortless 
application should be foremost in her daily ritual 
and the results must be virtually impeccable"

These three are Bronze 44, Creamy 80 & Dark Sable 180
There are 15 different shades so bound to be one perfect for you.
All £32 each - exclusively at Harrods

“I’ve used so many different foundations in my career, 
as you might imagine, and for me, Perfect Finish 
is like having access to a precious jewel,” says iconic make-up artist 
Pat McGrath, “Its texture is so airy and light and it produces
a natural glow alongside coverage that is 
so seamless and smooth. Perfect Finish is so easy 
to work with; it’s really quite a dream.”
