Capturing the essence of a healthy, luminous Mediterranean glow, and inspired by the colourful spirit of Sicily and the wild exuberance of the island’s landscapes, Solar Glow is a vibrant and joyful collection bringing to life a modern, solar and Mediterranean femininity. From the healthy glow of the Mediterranean to the vivid colours of the Solar Glow packaging, the products are linked to some of Dolce&Gabbana’s iconic patterns, which convey energy and joy for life. With its choice of fresh to warm glow, and suitable for all skin tones, the Solar Glow products enable the complexion to be enhanced with illumination, colour and bronzing all year long. This year, the two existing Solar Glow bronzing products are joined by two new additions to the Solar Glow universe, created to bring freshness and incredible radiance to the skin.
THE MEDITERRANEAN GLOW COMPLEX
The Solar Glow products are true skincare/make up hybrids. Easy textures in effortlessly flattering, customizable shades that bring warmth, radiance and glow to the skin. Every product in the Solar Glow collection is enriched with Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s Mediterranean Glow Complex, an exceptional synergy of natural ingredients powered by exclusive skincare technology to help to plump, hydrate and soften the skin. Its key ingredients include
• Hyaluronic Acid, which helps the skin hold on to maximum moisture levels for smooth, hydrated skin
• Fig Extract to help to promote long-lasting hydration and a radiant complexion
• Olive oil to bring softness and comfort to the skin. In addition, each of the products radiates with the Solar Glow fragrance, a floral-oriental elixir inspired by the Sicilian sun, transporting the wearer instantly to the landscapes of the Mediterranean.
Solar Glow Universal Illuminating Drops and Solar Glow Universal Bronzing Drops
Two essential glow-giving elixirs: Illuminating, for radiance, and Bronzing, for warmth. Simple to use, the water-based gel formulas are weightless, buildable, and each comes in a universal shade that matches every skin tone. The drops are versatile, and they can be applied in multiple ways for a truly customizable experience:
- mixed with moisturizer for natural skin radiance
- mixed with foundation for a fresh or sunkissed glow, yet perfected complexion
- alone to bring a soft, flattering highlight to bare skin The textures consist of a minimum of 60% water, ensuring a lightweight sensation to the skin.
Solar Glow Illuminating Powder Duo
To highlight the natural glow of the skin on cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow for a truly sensual take on Mediterranean beauty, this new illuminating duo naturally defines, illuminates and enhances the complexion with colour. There are four harmonies to choose, each one containing a perfect duo of complementary shades: two are composed of a highlighter with a blush that brings a touch of radiant colour, the other two contain a highlighter with a bronzer, adding natural healthy sun-kissed tones to the complexion.
For a fresh glow:
For a warm glow:
The advanced powder formula contains special coated pigments that allow easy, one-touch application. And the ultra-light, blendable textures do not dry or cake on the skin thanks to the addition of natural, skin-caring butters. Each powder is decorated with the same motif as the outer compact, adding an extra Sicilian detail.
Solar Glow Ultra-Light Bronzing Powder
A truly exceptional bronzing powder, as light yet warm as the sun’s rays, this ultra-light bronzing powder instantly warms the skin for a naturally-alluring radiant glow that lasts all day. The seven shades infuse naturally with the skin, creating a traceless, mistake-proof application and a healthy glow. Meanwhile the technically-advanced powder formulation leaves skin velvety and feeling nourished and smooth.
The vibrant and eye-catching packaging of the Solar Glow products radiates with the colour and energy of the maiolica designs, one of the most treasured of the Dolce&Gabbana iconic codes. The Universal Bronzing Drops and Illuminating Powder Duos feature a new, floral take on a classic maiolican-inspired print, while the Ultra-Light Bronzing Powder compact stars Dolce&Gabbana’s Sicilian Cart print, calling to mind the centuries-old history of Sicily, rich in details and decorations.
Dolce&Gabbana Beauty model Bianca Balti stars in the Solar Glow campaign, her skin glowing with the warmth and beauty of sun-kissed bronze. Added touches of subtle highlight giving her complexion a fresh, luminous quality. A creamy nude lipstick continues the natural look, and eyes are defined with a touch of black eye liner and lashings of black mascara. The packaging of Solar Glow perfectly matches her dress: an immersion into the Sicilian Cart tradition and colourful soul for a refined yet joyful style.
