From the innovative gel-to-powder formulas, universally-flattering pigments, and skincare-minded ingredients, the Casa Gaga Italian Glam Capsule Collection makes its mark as a truly unique set of beauty products.
In the much-anticipated Ridley Scott film, which comes out November 24, Lady Gaga stars as the infamous Patrizia Reggiani Martinelli, the ex-wife of Gucci heir Maurizio Gucci, who was convicted of his murder.
On set for House of Gucci, and in her true fashion, Gaga serves up some major style moments, but in real life, the singer was inspired by her time shooting the movie in Italy, which led to the creation of the first-ever holiday collection with her cosmetics brand Haus Laboratories, Casa Gaga Italian Glam Collection.
The high-key eyeliners, vivid blushes, and bold lipsticks in the limited-edition capsule are inspired by the more than 50 separate looks featured in the film, with certain products paying even more overt homage to ‘70s era Italy, according to Sarah Tanno, the Oscar winner’s longtime makeup artist and global artistry director for Haus Laboratories.
“It took us some time to develop and make sure it was absolutely perfect,” Tanno told Vanity Fair, describing how the collection came together on location while researching “all things Italian,” from iconic screen stars to period fashion codes. “We were using early iterations throughout, testing it out on and off set,” she says of the era-appropriate formulas that resulted.
This was definitely enough to excite and convince us to take a deeper look into the collection. And although the capsule collection is only here for a limited time, these are definitely products you don't want to miss out on during this holiday season.
A winged liner is such an on-point Gaga look, and along with bold red lips, her elaborate eyeliner styles are something she's known for.
Her Liquid Eye-lie-ner has a felt-tip which makes it easier to create smooth and fine lines, guiding your fingers without slipping.
The liquid matte formula also boasts 24-hour long wear and comes with a micro-precision tip for even more sophisticated eye looks.
Tanti Baci Extreme Creme Mini Lipstick Set
The Tanti Baci Extreme Creme Mini Lipstick Set consists of five mini lipsticks, with each shade in the set being named after a different Italian icon from the high-fashion ‘70s era depicted in the film.
The brown nude is for actor Marcello Mastroianni, deep peach for actress Gina Lollobrigida, berry for jewelry designer Elsa Peretti, coral for the icon Sophia Loren, and a true red for Gaga herself, referencing the singer’s birth name Stefani.
Each hue is packed with high-impact hydration through ingredients such as squalane, fig extract, and vitamins C and E. The mini lipsticks have a satin finish for an ultra-creamy and smooth application true to Haus Laboratories' standard.
La Luce Lip Glaze
La Luce Glaze is a lipgloss designed for wearing on its own or over any of the mini lipsticks, adding a little bit of glitz and glamour to the entire look.
The lipgloss features a non-sticky formula and a diamond finish. It comes in three shades named after Italian desserts: the golden Caramella d’Oro, ruby Maraschino, and purple Granita.
Furthermore, pearls, moisturizing esters, vitamin E, and polymers make up this iridescent and ultra-hydrating formula.
Tutti Gel Powder All-Over Rouge
The Tutti All-Over Rouge utilizes gel-powder technology to deliver a luxurious and lightweight formula. The weightless rouge evokes Gaga’s flushed cheeks during that one viral aprés ski moment she has alongside Adam Driver’s Maurizio. Like the lipsticks and lipglosses, each of the four versatile hues references Italian culture, this time homegrown cocktails: the Bellini, the Rossini, the Amarone, and the Spritz.
Tutti Gel Powder Highlighter
The Tutti Gel Powder Highlight also has a beautiful gel-powder formula like the blush that delivers a luxurious and lightweight feel on the skin.
The golden highlighter comes in one shade that complements all skin types with a vivid sun-kissed glow made to encapsulate the Italian golden hour.
A custom pearl blend and patented 3D gel powder work together to create a radiant and subtle shimmer that seamlessly fuses onto the skin for that beautiful and natural glow.
Pair it with the best-selling, limited edition Italian Glam Highlighter Brush, which features super soft bristles for a luminous glow and a perfect shape for precise application.
"Stating that something is 'just makeup' is not something I would ever say," Lady Gaga said. "Makeup was the way that I discovered who I am, and it transformed the way I felt about myself."
"In America, people see me as somebody that's very glamorous,” she continued, “but when I'm in Italy, all the women are like me. So this collection gives everyone, whether they are Italian or not, a chance to put on that Italian glam."
