Kohl Of Duty
After adding a bit of hype to the launch of its Kohl collection with the announcement that up-and-coming actress Felicity Jones would be the face of the intensely pigmented color range, Dolce & Gabbana The Makeup has unveiled the big reveal. The line finally hit shelves this week, and with it comes five shades of the newly launched The Kohl Pencil, a rich, soft-tipped stick that applies in a precise stroke and can be smudged for a more sultry effect, along with a matching selection of nail polish shades that correspond to each liner: Chocolate is a warm brown, Wild Green is a deep emerald, Peacock is a dark navy with a pure black eyeliner counterpart, Dahlia is an opulent burgundy/eggplant hybrid, and True White is, well, aptly named. There is also a Smoothe Eye Color Quad in Femme Fatale—a collection of the “ultimate neutral” shadows, according to Dolce & Gabbana creative adviser Pat McGrath, who used the combination of creams, tans, and tawny browns to build the perfect retro smoky eye backstage at the designers’ Spring show. It’s hard to pick a starting point with this collection, but the easy answer is to start with the lacquers and work your way up to the liners and shadow compact. A proper cat-eye application can take days to perfect, whereas a pristine set of dark hunter tips is just a manicure appointment away.
