Dolce & Gabbana The Roses Lipsticks: Fascination, Baby Darling & Shine On

March 20, 2010

Dolce & Gabbana released The Roses Lipstick Collection which consists of 5 lipsticks to celebrate the beauty line’s one year anniversary. The details and promotional photos can be found at one of my daily reads, Beauty Anonymous. Based on the promotional photos I ordered (left to right):

* Fascination – cool slightly deep pink (no shimmer)
* Baby Darling – shimmery nude peach-pink
* Shine On – shimmery yellowy-gold

The lipsticks are all highly pigmented and have the signature rose-lipstick scent that is in all the Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks. Baby Darling is the most neutral and doesn’t show up as well on my hand but is really pretty on the lips. All the ones I got were in the Shine Lipstick formula. The colors are lovely and very romantic-like.

I’m not sure that I’ll be wearing Shine On by itself since it seems so yellowy but my fellow Dolce & Gabbana fan Parsi has told me she wears this layered with the red and wine shades for extra shine and more depth. This should be an interesting combo! One of the Dolce & Gabbana artists I met a year ago told me that they often layered their Gold Lipstick over Naked Lipstick – he showed me the effect on his hand and it was lovely.

There will be one more post coming up for the new Dolce & Gabbana spring releases!

  • ahhh soo many lemmings on your blog! You photograph them soo well

  • Ohhhhhh these are BEAUTIFUL!

  • More gorgeousness! I wonder how Shine On would work with the D&G Apricot blush? Love your swatches of Baby Darling–so gorgeous!

  • These look so gorgeous together!

  • omg those are so pretty!

  • I recently got Baby Darling as a birthday present (chosen by me!) and I really really love the shade (though in my swatch it looks pinker!). I do find the formula slightly drying, but nothing a good gloss on top of it can't cure, right? Fascination looks gorgeous too, will have to check it out.

    PS: I saw you were interested in the Chanel polishes that were the "precursors" of Butter London's Jelly polishes (as mentioned by Grace London)… they were caleld Le Vernis Cristallin, very pretty but long gone!

  • Baby Darling looks so pretty! Ooh I thought I was done with D&G for a while, but I may just have to order this one :). Great photos!
