In the event you were wondering how it feels to wear green lipstick late on a Monday afternoon…
Emerald, one of four new Classic Cream Lipsticks in the eight-piece Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Jewels holiday collection, is one of those colors that can look edgy and cute if you’re a teen or in your early 20s…but fast-forward a decade or two and it’s “Hello, Helena Bonham Crazy!”
The four jewel-toned lipsticks in the release ($35 each) are joined by four matching nail polishes, so yeah, while you’re sporting your funky green lip, you can also rock green claws/paws.
I think Emerald’s the most fashion-forward lippie in the collection by far (I’ve yet to see the nail polishes up close and personal), and to truly pull it off, you either have to be a villain from the Harry Potter movies or a 6-foot-tall model stomping down a runway in Milan.
Or something like that.
Who cares though? It’s still fun.
The other lipsticks seem pretty tame by comparison. Red Ruby, purple Amethyst and amber Topaz take a more classic route.
All four medium-coverage lippies have the lightweight, slick texture of other Classic Creams and Dolce & Gabbana’s signature rose flavor and scent.
Like the precious gemstones they’re named after, these will be sparkling on Dolce & Gabbana counters in Saks Fifth Avenue stores and computer monitors (when they’re available online) this November.
Quick survey: do you think you’d ever wear Emerald?
