Wearing Dolce & Gabbana Monica Collection Lipstick in Chic Monica 100
A few shots of the new super-saturated luxury lippies from Dolce & Gabbana’s six-piece Monica Collection ($32 each), available now exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue stores and online at saksfifthavenue.com.
The collection’s named after one of Dolce & Gabbana’s muses, the Italian actress and fashion model Monica Bellucci.
Um…I’ll have whatever she’s having, LOL!

Wear time comes in around 4-5 hours for me. Pretty typical for lipsticks that aren’t billed as long-wearing.
How they look and feel, though? — in those ways, I think they’re anything but typical. We’re talking crazy creamy and packed with pigment. Pigment to spare.
As far as how they smell and taste, they have that almost rosy, traditional lipsticky flavor and scent, but it’s very faint.
I’m crushing on ’em hard…
