From Sophia Loren and Monica Bellucci, to Joony Kim and Bianca Balti, some of the most enchanting women have graced the campaigns of Dolce&Gabbana Beauty over the decades. Radiating with an inimitable sense of sensuality, opulence and glamour, these muses embody the brand’s spirit of provocative splendour, as well as its zest for life—as encapsulated by the bold palette and scintillating facets of its Make Up and Fragrances collection, all of which have been formulated with a colourful Italian heritage in mind.
You, too, can fully immerse yourself in the brand’s transportive world of cosmetic allure and artistry, at Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s flagship boutique in Singapore, at ION Orchard. Think kaleidoscopic and exclusive beauty accessories to arm and empower women on-the-go, like The Only One Luminous Colour Lipstick and the Felineeyes Intense Eyeshadow Quad that have been designed to make everyone feel like a queen, as well as a whole list of gift-worthy items to give and get this festive season.
La Casa, Dolce & Gabbana Beauty’s flagship boutique in Singapore
Affectionately dubbed La Casa, the 92-square metre Dolce&Gabbana Beauty boutique is designed like an opulent apartment, complete with walls of make-up flanking an extensive vanity area; a ‘dining room’ with confections of beauty and the Fruit fragrance collection that look almost good enough to eat; and a plush fireplace adorned with fragrances—the luxurious Velvet collection, to be exact, featuring Oriental Blends, Designers Memories and Mediterranean Secrets. These suite-like interiors come fully decked out in a blend of bold and maximalist aesthetics, like black oak, polished gold steel, crimson velvet, and embroidered upholstery, accented with brand objets d’art that have been designed and created in collaboration with fellow Italian artisans.
Beauty fit for a queen
Equally audacious is the Make Up collection with its sumptuous textures and innovative formulas that come in a myriad of hues and patterns that are reflected on the inside out. These include signature brand motifs like the animalier print, black lace, roses, the Sicilian cart, and baroque, which bring to mind the gilded accents and elaborate architecture of Sicily. These statement packaging transform each lipstick, foundation and eyeshadow palette into works of art, elevating touch-ups anytime, anywhere.
But that’s not all. The Make Up collection features the brand’s exclusive Mediterranean Glow Complex. Derived from nature and powered by science, it combines the very best in Sicilian heritage and Shiseido’s in-house technology—natural Mediterranean fig extract and organic Italian olive oil activated by hyaluronic acid. The result is a healthy glow-up that captures the essence of that envy-worthy Mediterranean aura.
A product for every feature
For a statement-making pout, The Only One Matte Lipstick, $69, is a velvety matte formula that cushions lips with intense, creamy pigment. It stays in place and lasts all day without drying out lips, and is available in 12 covetable shades, each telling a story of passion, emotion and grandeur. And for an extra personable touch, you can select a decorative cap inspired by four Dolce&Gabbana motifs: black, lace, Damasco and animalier print, that speaks to your inner Italian bella donna.
Looking for a gleaming lip look instead? You can always opt for the original The Only One Lipstick, $69, which delivers a luminous, silky finish, while The Shinissimo, $59 is an ultra-reflective lip lacquer that’s packed with pigments to deliver brilliant shine and colour for an alluring your pout in 14 shades, adorned with the iconic Dolce & Gabbana Sacred Heart.
If you’re all about accentuating the eyes to express your innermost feelings, this eye-opening trio will help you achieve a look that is full of passion and seduction.
Start with the Felineyes Intense Eyeshadow Quad, $102 on your lids. Each palette offers four buildable colours in matte and shimmer finishes, can be applied dry or wet, and takes you from day to night with ease thanks to its eight-hour long-wear. Choose from eight different colour combinations to choose from to suit any occasion and any look, from bold to natural. Then complete your look with the Felineyes Eyeliner Stylo, $59. This liquid eyeliner might only come in one shade, black, but it’s the one shade that speaks volume. Fusing performance and artful creativity, it brings intensity to your eyes, especially if you’re in the mood for a sensual cat-eye flick.
To emulate the enviable, golden glow that Italian women are known for—think Monica Bellucci—make the new Healthy Glow Cushion Foundation, $62 for the cushion refill and $45 for the case, and the Translucent Loose Setting Powder, $70, your new complexion go-tos. The former is a skin tone-evening, weightless foundation formula that infuses skin with hydration and SPF50 PA+++ protection, while the latter locks it all in with a seamless satiny veil.
But if you want to turn up that lit-from-within glow, try the Solar Glow Universal Illuminating Drops, $69. Its weightless and buildable water-based gel formula refreshes the skin, plumping it with multi-dimensional luminosity, while the Universal Bronzing Drops, $69 delivers delicate, fresh-from-vacation bronzed radiance. Both elixirs are infused with a unique Solar Glow fragrance, a floral-oriental scent inspired by the Sicilian sun that will transport to the Italian Riviera. And finally, for those seeking a warm, sun-kissed flush, the Solar Glow Illuminating Powder Duo, $95, is the product for you, available in four colour harmonies.
You can also browse and purchase other beauty items such as the new Millennialskin On-the-Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF30, $69—its hybrid skincare-foundation formula leaves skin looking fresh and flawless in an instant, but also softens, hydrates and protects from pollution, oxidation and sun damage; and the Blush of Roses Luminous Cheek Colour, $79, which nourishes the skin with natural butters while delivering a healthy, second-skin flush. And to finish any beauty look off is the delectable selection of Dolce & Gabbana fragrances, from the iconic Light Blue EDT, $170 for 100ml and The Only One Gold EDPI, $217 for 100ml, to the boutique exclusive Fruit Collection, $275 for 150ml, a trio of fresh fruit-inspired scents—zesty Lemon, sweet Orange and exotic Pineapple.
