"$59 foundation, $30 lipstick and $44 rouge in gold-toned packaging"
Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics are a Procter & Gamble brand sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and no one involved seems the least bit ridiculous: "[Procter & Gamble VP] Mr. Strobel, dressed during a recent interview in Dolce & Gabbana jeans, jacket and gold-soled sneakers, said P&G's testing showed that consumers 'loved the experience.' Mr. Strobel personally tested the cosmetics, painting each of his fingernails a different color and trying the foundation and eye shadow. Lipstick is the collection's particular focus for Messrs. Dolce and Gabbana....Messrs. Dolce and Gabbana profess a passion for red lips, but they added orange....Mr. Gabbana said he would tolerate only the color of oranges from Sicily."
