Dolce & Gabbana Fortune Eyeshadow Duo

I recently purchased a few items from Dolce & Gabbana. Here is a look at the shadow duo "Fortune." My local Saks does not carry D&G cosmetics so I rely on web swatches online which, as we all know are not always true to life, unfortunately! I really love the texture, pigmentation and blendability of the Dolce & Gabbana's eye shadows that I've tried. I was a little disappointed that light ivory-gold seems identical to the light golds contained in some of the other quads I own, so this shade is not a new one for me. It is a really great, sheer gold though, with a lovely texture and looks prettier on than my swatches can convey. I had hoped the brownish/eggplant shade would be more vibrant and shimmery. It definitely works better when used with a base to bring out the color. This duo should come in handy for a super-quick everyday eye, by using the lighter shade all over the eye, the darker shade to line the upper lashline, and some dark eyeliner (dark brown, plum, or black) to complete the look.
