Except those grayish tone lippies. However, I wonder how practical are those in real life.

Make up artist Pat McGrath worked with D&G to create the collection that was inspired by their 2011 runway collection.
” We wanted to reflect the Sicilian culture with a fresh interpretation. We began by imagining a young bride’s hope chest, full of treasures from the past and the present that are the key to her future. To capture this moment of purity and deep passion, the moment when a woman’s future beckons was so challenging… yet, in the end, the collection evolved so naturally, it could work for any significant passage of a woman’s life. “
“ Capturing the joy, exultation and the extremes of our rich heritage – and making it very modern; that was our goal. This led to a palette emphasizing the ultimate contrast: soft fragile tones with bold, almost brazen highlights. We even chose names for the shades that are symbolic of the relics, the rituals of Sicily – sole, passione, acqua, luna. The look we wanted to convey was the kind of dream state when a woman’s dreams are full of hope, desire and passion. ”
I want the Vulcano eye colour quad, Sun blush, Bon Bon lip gloss & Passion nail polish.
The creme de la creme of lipgloss, IMO. The kit extreme sheen shown is a wonderful set that allows you to try Hourglass Extreme Sheen.
This luscious smelling gloss is one of the shiniest glosses I’ve tried, and it’s nicely pigmented with a non-sticky texture. It combines rich, beautiful pigments, much richer than most glosses; packs with amazing shine yet doesn’t look goopy or garish. The formula is luxurious!
It’s also packed with Vitamin E for lips nourishment. Like the rest of their makeup line, it doesn’t contain any parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
The range consist of 12 lovely shades. These ultra-rich glosses contain a patented ingredient which coats lips with a layer of liquid crystal,thus the amazing shine. Madonna’s makeup artist and new Hourglass Artist Director Gina Brooke has helped the brand recently relaunch their Extreme Sheen lipgloss collection, adding a new nude shade called Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss Child. The collection features beautiful, modern and chic packaging in a squeeze tube with long, high quality, brush applicator.
“Pure pigment, pure shine, pure luxury: this intensely-hued, super lustrous lip gloss is formulated with active ingredients that hydrate and restore lips for an immediately soft and smooth effect.”
There are 12 shades available:
Child (sheer nude)
Fortune (golden pink shimmer)
Ignite (rose beige shimmer)
Imagine (peach champagne shimmer)
Lush (golden peach shimmer)
Nectar (bright coral)
Origami (bubble gum pink)
Primal (sheer plum)
Reflect (sheer glimmering pink)
Siren (metallic red)
Truth (rosy nude)
Verse (Light beige shimmer)
The Christmas gift set shown above comes with 3 X 3.5 g of Extreme Sheen gloss; in Ignite, Siren & Child.
I loves these vanilla scented ( flavour free though ), super balmy lip-glosses with decent pigmentation & reflection. Highly recommended by LPB.
This could simply be the holy grail lipgloss for beauty junkies that had tried all.
