Beauty Find - Dolce and GabbanaTrue Monica Collection

Monica Bellucci is not only stunning, but an amazing actress known for her ability to transform into completely different beauty looks in the roles the takes on.

But Monica's signature look, especially on the red carpet, is smoldering smoky eyes and a soft, but defined lip. 

That's why the latest Dolce and Gabbana collection, True Monica, is such a delight.  For summer, Dolce and Gabbana decided to feature a more neutral/pink color palette that is flattering and very versatile at the same time.
True Monica features three lipsticks, an eye palette, an eyeliner shade, and a nail lacquer, created by genius creative-advisor to the brand, Pat McGrath.

My favorite lipstick, Gentle Monica (shown above), is the darkest new one, which is a dusty pink with a touch of brown which makes it work for a neutral/nude lip.  The lipstick is very lightweight, but has a creamy smooth texture and a semi matte finish.

The Eyeshadow palette in Smoky is another gem in the collection.  The four colors work with all skin tones and any kind of look you want to put together. There are two matte shades and two shimmers.

You can use the black (matte) /toasty-brown (fine shimmer) shades for lining or shadows and the champagne (matte) /oyster pink (fine shimmer) for highlighting or blending with the deeper shades.  The textures are all creamy and very easy to blend and line with.

On any given day I reached for this glam quartet to create a simple or more sophisticated smoky eye look.

The Nail Lacquer in Gentle Monica is a slightly deeper version of the lip color and a beautiful update on a traditional pale pink nail. It's a cream (no shimmer) finish and as always, the formula is smooth, med-thick and streak free.  One coat gives full opaque color, and two will add that extra dimension and shine. - RLB
