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


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…

    Chic Monica, Attractive Monica and Magnetic Monica are speaking to me! I’ll have to go check them out!

  2. Oh my. All of these colors are super wearable to me – there’s a color for every occasion! Too bad we don’t get D&G in Canada.

  3. Whoa you look mega hot with all of these! I love how Natural Monica doesn’t wash you out, and it doesn’t surprise me how good Chic Monica looks on you either 🙂

  4. Ru says:

    LOVE your eye makeup in these pics. What products are you using?

  5. lexi says:

    Monica is on my list of “women I’d gladly switch teams for” so I’ll definitely be picking up at least one of these shades. It’ll be a hard choice as they all look fantastic!

  6. I feel like Attractive Monica might actually work for me. It looks pretty cool toned for a red which is usually too bright or orange on my pale skin. I have yet to try any D&G makeup but I’ve been dying to try the foundation. I may have to add a lippy to that purchase now.

    Magnetic Monica and Chic Monica are both gorgeous! As gorgeous as the lady they are named after. She’s hawt, in a very Nigella Lawson sort of way!

  8. Sunita says:

    WOW! Your whole look suits you really well!!

  9. Jenny says:

    When I saw the photo of the lipsticks I was really attracted by Chic Monica and Attractive Monica, but in the swatches they both seem darker than in the tubes 🙁 However I love Italian Monica, so gorgeous!

    I also find it funny that the ad pic on your post is a spanish ad! lol Idk why but it made me feel excited (I never see posts or pics about spanish brands or ads in US blogs hehehehe)

  10. Dominique says:

    Very intense colours, I don’t know if I’ll purchase yet because I have so many lipsticks and I must save up money for the gorgeous Fall collections too. But Monica Lipsticks are great.

  11. Bisbee says:

    I’ve got Only Monica – love it on you!

  12. Crystal says:

    I ordered every one but Natural Monica. The D&G lipsticks are so good thanks for the swatches! Love the pigmentation!

    Are you sure that’s Chic Monica at the top?

  14. musical says:

    Only Monica looks lovely for everyday wear! The others are perfect for a statement lip :).

  15. Katherine G says:

    You look beautiful in the new lipsticks! I love Monica Bellucci. Great muse for D&G.

  16. AG says:

    Wow, the very first picture of you make me double-take! You look stunning in that color!

    I’m drooling over Attractive and Magnetic. Is it even fair to place Monica in a cosmetics ad? She looks amazing with or without makeup!

  20. Lulle says:

    I love Only and Italian, but I’ll have to pass and look for more affordable dupes.

  21. Only Monica is so so so pretty on you! I haven’t tried anything from the D&G beauty but I definitely need to!

  27. Ruby says:

    U look gorgeous in these shades! Such a pity that D&G is not available in Singapore

  28. Why does Chic Monica look so different in the cover picture and the one below? I hope the one in the cover picture is the more ‘true’ color coz it looks gorgeous on you.

  29. Alice Chaffin says:

    I generally liked all the colors on you. The bright red one though not so much, it just isn’t you in my opinion. However if five out of the six look good that is not too bad.

    LOVE Magnetic Monica!

  33. Mindy says:

    Wow, you are rockin in the Magnetc Monica. That is definitely a hit for me, as well as Chic Monica; Only Monica is an everyday, day time shade. You look lovely in all of ’em!

  34. Nancy says:

    You look glamorous! I love the whole collection and agree that they are very pigmented and last a long time. You look great in the Italian, chic and magnetic shades…

  35. Maygan says:

    They are all amazing colors but the Natural Monica is like the magic lipstick! When I first saw it I thought okay anothe neutral pink. It blew my mind. It looks good on almost anything with a pulse. Im super light and it doesnt wash me out or turn too blue. The Only Monica is much sheerer so I wear that when I want more of a stained look. If it would give me her curves I would eat them all lol!

  36. Elena says:

    Hi all. can u pls tell me an alternative for chic monica?? from bobbi brown or mac?? thanks

  37. Venus says:

    Got my friend in UK to nab Only Monica from Harrods after reading your post. Love how the hue brightens and lends youthful complexion. It’s a third lipstick I bought after checking out your reviews (stila & bobbi brown). Thanks!
