Dolce & Gabbana Ethereal Collection Lipsticks and Lipgloss: Swatches and a Bad Pun

Published in: Makeup

When you look in the mirror, what are your lips saying to you?

Do they offer words of encouragement? Do they build you up or tear you down?


Do they tell you you’re beautiful and say, “you’re making a difference in the world”? Do they say you’re important, unique, special, and tell you that you’re loved?

I hope so.

Today my lips are whispering the quiet, hushed tones of Dolce & Gabbana’s upcoming holiday collection and saying, “hurry up and take these pictures, Karen, and let’s go to the movies, ha!” πŸ™‚

Okay, now, I’ve been trying to come up with some kind of amusing pun having to do with nakedness to end this post. How about, “Would you go skinny dipping with these nude shades?”

Yeah, I know. Sometimes it doesn’t work. πŸ™‚

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


Breast Cancer Awareness MonthP.S. I warned you that I would keep cajoling you to participate in the Breast Cancer Awareness Month “Show Your Sign” project, so that’s what I’m doing right now… Hey, you, lady at the computer, I know you have a blank piece of paper and a camera phone in the house. That’s all it takes to enter, hint hint.

    Karen these all look amazing on you. Thanks for the preview. I’m going to need 1 of everything from the collection. I wonder how Honey compares to Glossy. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see.

    They all look so pretty! When I look in the mirror, my lips are saying “Exfoliate me! Give me some lip balm! I’m thirsty!” (I had a cold this week, and my lips got soooo dried out!)

    These are some gorgeous colors. Never tried any MU by D&G. Maybe it’s time to start.

    Are those 3D glasses that you are rockin’?

    I’m quite a fan of lumberjack shirts, too.

  15. Jana says:

    Wow, the Shimmer Shine Lipstick looks great on you!

  16. mkdallas says:

    Karen, all of these lippies look great but more importantly, you look MAHVELOUS!!! I don’t know if you’re tweaking the hair/makeup or what, but you look radiant, beautiful and happy. Good for you!

  17. Sylvia J says:

    D&G makeup isnt available in Australia πŸ™ WHY?!?!?

  18. Kim says:

    Well, you know I like the Shimmer lipgloss (of course!), but that Desert lipstick looks great on you. I’m just seeing your sign contest this AM, so I’ll have to read up and see if I can get creative. I did an awesome luminary bag for the Relay for Life this year but unfortch it wasn’t breast cancer themed. I know, my laziness knows no bounds. πŸ™‚
