What do you get when Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini joins forces with makeup-artist royalty Pat McGrath? One of the most ridiculously glamorous cosmetic collections you’ve ever seen. And we have selected, but a few, of the line’s standout products.
Gucci Eye Magnetic Color Shadow Mono in Iconic Ottanio
When Giannini pulled fabric swatches from the Gucci archives for inspiration, she zeroed in on six anchoring colors that run through the line: gold, black, red, bronze, copper, and this vivid peacock, ottanio (Italian for teal). “The iconic colors are really the colors Frida loved,” says McGrath. Tiny flecks of aqua give the eye shadow a stunning glimmer with tons of black mascara.
Gucci Luxe Finishing Powder
Like all of the line’s pressed powders, this one is finely milled and comes in a weighty black compact stamped with the double G’s (they call it the Guccissima pattern).
Gucci Lustrous Glow Foundation
For makeup that doesn’t look like makeup, this foundation is silky, comes in a variety of shades, and a small drop is enough to even out your complexion.
Gucci Eye Opulent Volume Mascara in Iconic Black
This mascara re-creates the heavily lashed looks of the ’60s and ’70s. The wand has 42 little paddles nestled between the bristles to scoop up and deposit loads of mascara; 204 tiny combs then distribute it all evenly for a long, fluttering effect.
Gucci Eye Power Liquid Liner in Iconic Black
The Gucci muses—Anjelica Huston, Veruschka, Lauren Hutton—would have loved this felt pen. It creates coquettish cat eyes without requiring a surgeon’s steady hand. After you shake the pen, a central shaft inside delivers glossy, inky pigment directly to the firm, fine nib.
Gucci Golden Glow Bronzer in Indian Sand
There are ruddy, glittery bronzers, and then there are bronzers that make your skin look perfectly, radiantly sun-kissed. This one falls firmly in the latter camp. The fleshy-brown tone creates a believable glow, and the barely noticeable gold luster catches the light just so.
Gucci Lip Vibrant Demi Glaze Lip Lacquer in Iconic Red
No glassy shine or uncomfortable stickiness—just concentrated color and a subtle sheen. All 20 shades of this gloss are true to the color you see in the tube, including this cool bluish red. And they last well into lunchtime without fading or spreading.
