Dolce and Gabbana Makeup: Say Hello to Luxury Lipstick Lust

Published in: Makeup

Dolce & Gabbana’s lipsticks ($30) just *might* be worthy enough to join my beloved Chanel Aqualumieres in the lust-worthy Luxury Lipstick Club.

Shine Lipstick in Soiree, $30

Like Chanel’s hydrating Aqualumieres, Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks have a light yet moisturizing texture that feels slick.

Add a blindingly shiny finish to their smoove, rich pigmentation, and you get one hellavu luxury lippie. 🙂

They come come in two formulas — Classic Cream and Shine.

The Classic Creams offer fuller coverage, while the Shines apply semi-sheer.

Both formulas have a classic lipstick-y scent (it reminds me of candles and roses) and taste a little like rose-flavored cupcakes, yum!

And for a relatively new makeup line, Dolce & Gabbana cooked up a decent color selection here, with 39 shades to choose from. I tried four:

  • Shine Lipstick in Soiree: a shimmery, peachy pink
  • Classic Cream Lipstick in Provocative: a creamy, pinkish brown
  • Classic Cream Lipstick in Seduction: a creamy violet
  • Classic Cream Lipstick in Dazzling: a shimmery berry

At $30, these lipsticks are pure splurge, but if you’re in the mood for a treat, they make a worthy reward.

How do you feel about these colors?

I never had Hammer pants!

MC Hammer’s U Can’t Touch This has been stuck in my head all day long…

My dance teacher used it in a routine last night, and now it’s stuck on mental replay.


The last time I danced to this song in public was at a random house party back in 1998, LOL! I gotta admit, though, it still makes me feel like movin’.

I kinda feel the need to wear my bangs hella high, too. Weird…

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

  2. YadiQ says:

    i too promise that i NEVER worse hammer pants either lol

    though i do use that phrase at work all the time when people throw to much info at me i say “STOP” (and take a moment to process what was just said) then i say “hammer time” usually throws people for a loop – yeah yeah i know i am a dork lol – i always have to find a way to make light of people who tap dance on my nerves if not i go crazy!!! And when people riverdance on my nerves forget it i will drive them nuts right back ! 😀

    these lipsticks look divine – dazzling is really pretty!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yadi,

      LOL — but did you rock a pair of Z. Cavarrici’s? I’m so guilty!

      The sad thing about this is that I still know ALL THE WORDS to that song.

  3. Maggie says:

    Soiree looks great on you. 😀
    I though Provocative would be a bright, look-at-me hot pink but it looks pretty wearable?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Maggie,

      It’s super wearable. The formula applies really smoothly; plus, it’s not SO pigmented that it’s hard to wear. If you have a very cool skin tone I think it’ll look banging on you!

  4. Joanne says:

    This is Luxury !! I want !

  5. YadiQ says:

    ok karen now who didnt wear those iback in the days
    especially when you have young parents like mine lord they dressed me in these cooky outfit so not cute – i think my mom was like the pro at hair spraying my naturally curly hair into straight super high bangs and being able to get them to not frizz when it was humid out – god i wish i can buen 90% of my childhood pics !

    lol remember stiff stuff?? lol

    dear god i feel old!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yadi,

      LOL! I was a L’Oreal Pumping Curls/Depp kinda girl.

      I don’t miss acid wash, Forenza sweatshirts, tight jeans with the zippers on the calves — dang, the late 80s/early 90s were rrrrrrough.

  6. cloudburst says:

    They are very sheer on you – even the classic cream ones.

  7. Kitty says:

    Wow, yummy!

  8. Vanessa H says:

    Soiree is yelling for me to buy it!

    Thanks for the swatches, I had been waiting to see them on!

  9. Sonja says:

    Wow, Soiree looks like exactly what I’m looking for right now- a peachy pink, close to nude. But do you know when D&G will be available in Europe? Or any other brands with a great peachy pink (I loved that Urban Decay one, but alas, we don’t have UD:(

  10. eunice says:

    Sooire really looks good on you…

  11. Citrine says:

    I am with the majority here about soiree…but all of them seems so sheer for something that expensive.

  12. Glosslizard says:

    My lips need to meet these lipsticks! 😛

  13. Solé says:

    Dazzling looks dazzling on you! I wouldn’t have expected them to be that sheer though. Pretty.

    Just a couple of days ago I saw Hammer pants in the Victoria’s Secret catalog! I couldn’t believe my eyes! But they call them Harem Pants now. What-ev, VS! An item of clothing that even looks unflattering on supermodels should just not exist! Gross.

  14. Sherry says:

    wow.. they are lovely!

  15. Kypris says:

    They look lovely! I love how they give your lips a lovely colour while looking very natural and smooth… but definitely an expensive splurge!

  16. Tavia says:

    I like the Classic Cream Lipstick in Provocative and love how it looks on your lips. I usually don’t use lipstick I’m a fan of lip shiners or lipglosses, but I think it will change soon cause last time I was really impressed with some creamy lipsticks from Givenchy in Beige champain or Rose desire. They had such a soft texture and i felt my lips hydrated for a long time.

  17. Karen B says:

    Looks great. Just a pity that Provocative isn’t as pigmented as I’d hoped.
    That’s what you get with Illamasqua in the back of your head. I ended up not checking anything out at their counter, I had to cancell my appointment. Didn’t buy a single item of make-up on my trip. What a disgrace. lol.

  18. chamayne says:

    Thank you for convincing me that I have to try this…sheesh Karen. *i’m secretly excited even if my pockets are in a rage*

  19. gio says:

    Thanks for the swatches, Dazzling looks gorgeous! I was hoping these would be more pigmented though.

    Yo, sound the bell, school is in, sucka! lmao Oh I love this song. I never had hammerpants either.

    Love the D&G lippies…thanks!

  22. Marce says:

    Loving Soiree on you, it’s super pretty! I thought maybe the Creme ones would have a bit more pigment? Oh well…
    LOL, Baby Got Back makes me laugh every time…it reminds me of Donkey (from Shrek, yo!) singing “I like big buts and I cannot lie!”

  23. Catherine says:

    WOW – Soiree and Dazzling are just gorgeous! Ahhh, why are all the lipsticks I love so expensive? LOL. Will have to put D&G on my shortlist of lipsticks to try. =)

  26. lexi says:

    hey there, I think these are a little too rich for my blood!

  27. Karen B says:

    Yeah I am. Thanks 🙂
    Had an amazing time and met so many incredibly inspiring and lovely people. It’s made me even more determined (if that were possible…)

  28. Erin says:

    Do you know how I can get the soiree? The only place I can find it online is and they don’t have that color.
