Springing Up on Dolce & Gabbana Counters Now: The Sheer and Pretty Bouquet Collection Lipglosses

Wearing Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection Lipgloss in Raspberry on my lips

I have a confession to make… I had a blast wearing that crazy blue lipstick around the house yesterday, but I didn’t have the guts to wear it out in public.



I know! Me — the gal who’s always bugging you to try new colors and break out of your comfort zone. Well, I tried to take my own advice, but I only made it as far as the garage.

Yep, there I was, sitting in the car with the engine warming up, and me in my blue lips, when I succumbed to the urge to check myself in the rear-view mirror.

“Holy crap, Karen!” I said to my cerulean self. “You look bat sh*t cray.”

It was bad enough that the errand I intended to run already involved me having to do something of potential embarrassment in rush-hour traffic (stay tuned for tonight’s post!), but the blue lips just took it to a whole new level.

I mean, I’m all for trying new things when it comes to makeup — why not, right? It washes off — but sometimes the desire to feel pretty trumps my cosmetics curiosity.

Good thing I always keep makeup wipes in the car (you never know when you’ll get the urge to swatch).

After I wiped my blue lips clean, I went rutting around in my purse for something else to wear, and the new Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Lipglosses were the first things to catch my eye.

I’ve been wearing these sheer, softly shiny glosses ($29 each) a lot lately to balance out looks with bold/smokey eyes.

If you check ‘em out on a future trip to Saks and don’t get totally distracted by some of the other gorgeous stuff at the Dolce & Gabbana counter (like the blushes, the Passion Duos or the to-die-for Khol polishes), let me know how it goes.

If you like natural lip looks, keep these non-sticky lippies in mind. So pretty, especially if you wear sheer glosses more often than — oh, I don’t know — cray-cray bright blue lipsticks. :)

The Dolce & Gabbana Bouquet Collection Lipglosses

  • Available in five shades, four of which are repromotes — clear Acqua, shimmery golden peach Shimmer, creamy pink Innocence, and shimmery lilac Pink Diamond — while one, creamy mauve Raspberry, is brand new
  • About a 2-hour wear time
  • They have a faint rose flavor and scent
  • I think they’re fairly moisturizing; I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm first
  • They come with a doe-foot applicator

PRICE: $29 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (dig the colors, texture and consistency, but I wish they were cheaper)

The final countdown!

Less than eight hours until the The Hunger Games midnight show, and I. Can’t. Wait!

Poor El Hub… He’s such a trooper! He has to go to work at the crack of dawn tomorrow, but he still agreed to go to the movie with me tonight (yup, Tabs flaked).

Now that I think about it, the last time El Hub stayed out past 2 a.m. was probably at my 30th birthday party, which my parents hosted at a Filipino drag queen bar/restaurant/karaoke joint.

Dang, that was fun. :)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    I love Pink Diamond!

  4. These look like glosses that would make more of a difference layered over lipsticks.

    Keep us posted about how you like the movie! I heard it’s good, but I won’t get to see it till Sunday (the earliest)! And dang, that birthday party your parents threw for you sounds like FUN!
