Most of you probably don't need much encouragement from me to book a holiday. La FREAKIN Niña is a good enough reason to want to vamoose in search of warmer climates and this Dolce & Gabbana Lip Jewels (approx $63). The soft, romantic rosy lips at the Dolce & Gabbana Spring '11 show were created using this very palette which features four creamy Dolce & Gabbana lipstick shades: Dahlia, Devil, Ultra and Nude. Designed by My Favourite Makeup Artist of All Time, Pat McGrath, the Saks-exclusive is worth a trip to the US, I think. Pretty and practical, Pat says of the palette: “The mouth is such a focal point . . . so we [Pat, Stefano and Domenico] really worked hard to come up with the shades that were not just our favourites but every woman’s favourites. The three reds we chose are very luscious . . . and Nude is so perfect for contrast or a really simple natural look . . . they’re all just gorgeous.” We agree, Pat.
If, like me, you want to own this palette, here are your holiday options: Italy, Russia, United Arab Emirates, UK or the US. I'm hitting NYC, baby.
