So, I would probably love the new Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Caramel ($30) if it weren’t for one minor thing…
Part of the six-piece Sicilian Lace collection for fall, it’s also one of 32 available Classic Cream Lipsticks carried exclusively at Saks, and it just so happens to almost exactly match the color of my skin!
Here’s a swatch on my arm (no, seriously, there is a swatch):

I dig D&G’s elegant packaging (the golden tubes are gorge!), slick texture and Caramel’s light rose scent (it is unflavored, though), but I’m not too keen on this Caramel for myself.
NOTE: Flesh-toned lips make me feel like a short brown mannequin…

I can see Caramel Lipstick looking better (and beautiful) on lighter lovelies. If you like warm beige lippies with a creamy finish — and you’re cool with the $30 price — Caramel could be a sweet treat (and there are also 31 other flavors).
