Product Review: Dolce & Gabanna (The Foundations)

I recently acquired three products in the Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Collection: The Foundation, The  Foundation Powder, and the new Fusion Lipstick.

The Foundation is good. My color is Soft Tan. It’s honestly the best cream foundation I’ve ever used. As I understand it, there are three different primers in this foundation, which adapt to your skin’s individual needs. For me, that means I need help with oil control. This foundation went on matte and set nearly instantly.. it’s WONDERFUL. And you use such a small amount to get a medium to full coverage…

I’ve used the foundation once, and only used a small amount that was trapped in the top to cover my entire face. This stuff is totally weightless and is REALLY good. I love it. And it’s about on par with my other foundations price wise.. $66.00. I used to use Shu Uemura Cream Foundation, but this one has seriously changed my mind.

The Foundation Powder is not really that. It’s a pressed powder (that goes on very light) when it’s dry, and a foundation powder (with medium coverage) when it’s wet. I was hesitant about it because I don’t like the idea of packing a foundation powder over a foundation… but the guy at Dolce & Gabbana explained that it behaves like a regular pressed powder when you dust it lightly over foundation. He’s right. I used a light touch to set my foundation and it performed beautifully.

The compact splits to reveal a sponge, that I will likely never use…
The lipstick is amazing. It’s a lipstick, with a lipgloss center in a contrasting color. I chose the color ‘Dazzle’ (gold) because, as the Dolce & Gabbana guy told me, the company is known for its Golds…

I’m really happy with all three items. Of them all, The Foundation is the biggest surprise. I really didn’t expect the density and performance of this foundation, especially on my oily skin. I highly recommend it, if you’re in the  market for a luxury cream foundation that actually performs.

My purchase came with the most awesome gift…

An eyelash curler, a Lipgloss Palette, a Lip Pencil (that is mysteriously missing its top… it came that way), and a full sized mascara. I have to say, this is one of the best GWP’s that I’ve ever gotten from a cosmetics company… EVER. You rarely get full sized products and you NEVER get tools! I think I love D&G even more now. They went out of their way to set themselves apart with this gift.

Love!
