Dolce & Gabbana Evocative Beauty Fall 2010 Makeup

Dolce & Gabbana is showcasing dark, sensual lips and glamorous eyes this season. Their Evocative Beauty Fall 2010 makeup collection features deep purples, blues, light pinks and even the occasional orange. Wearing their new colors, Scarlett Johansson looks so sexy and feral as their beauty spokeswoman.

Let's start with the peepers. The Eyeshadow quad in Divine 147 is a soft violet and pink palette. Two neutral shades are included to blend the look together. The shades look darker in the photo but the finish is quite soft and lovely. It contrasts nicely with the bold cream lipsticks (Lust and Amethyst). To finish the eyes, The Eyeliner pencils (Onyx 11 & Chocolate 10) will really stay put unless you've got really oily skin. I like Onyx as the gray charcoal gives strong definition without the need for a harsh black line.

Two new eyeshadow duos were also launched. Ocean 180 is a greenish blue and gray violet combo that's soft enough for daytime. You can even get away with this for Spring. All you have to do is layer more on for a smoky nighttime look. I love this one as it sets off my brown eyes so perfectly. The Evocative 95 duo didn't work as well, as the pink and cocoa brown sorta gave a strange pallor to my face. I think it's great for a lighter complexion that doesn't contain any yellow undertones.

The new Fall lipsticks have wonderful staying power. Even when it finally wears off the color still looks great. My favorite of the four shades is Orchid 115, which is a gorgeous shiny fuschia. For the wannabe goth girls, Amethyst 165 (dark grape) or Lust 167 (chocolate brown) will make you totally swoon. On the complete opposite of the color spectrum, Cosmopolitain 237 (bright pinky orange) will add a splash of hot color to a cooler season. This shade also comes with a matching nail polish. With these stand out shades, you don't need a dramatic eye but definitely go for it if you can pull it off.

The matching lip glosses are also really nice with a subtle iridescent shimmer. Vibrant 143 (bright raspberry pink) reminds me of an Armani gloss, but it's not as glittery. Amethyst 155 (shimmering dark grape) goes very well with the Amethyst and Lust lipsticks. These semi-sheer glosses are highly pigmented so you can wear them alone without any lip liner.

Fantastic, intense colours but hard to pull off. Only for evening occasions and even then one must be careful not to apply too much.

It can be tricky to pull off but you definitely can apply lightly or mix with another color.

Oh the purple lip gloss is gorgeous! Especially Amethyst 155, although I am not sure it is a color everyone can pull off including myself lol!
