Dolce & Gabbana Fascination Shine Lipstick

* natural light, no flash

Dolce & Gabbana’s Fascination Lipstick is part of the mini collection that was released back in March called The Roses which consists of five new lipsticks inspired by different roses. Today I wanted to do a lip-swatch of Fascination, a cool cream pink.

As a disclaimer, I don’t know that the rose I have pictured is an actual Fascination Rose, but it was close in color to the lipstick. I like the texture and finish of this D&G lipstick, however, it’s a bit too cool for my skintone by itself. So while I think it’s pretty in the tube, on the lips, it just looks to fake. The other two I purchased, Shine On and Baby Darling, are easier for me to wear (they were previously featured in March here).

    Even though it is very cool-toned, it actually looks very feminine and pretty on you!

    Love this on you! I'm looking for a similar shade actually. I think this one might just be it.

    Reminds me of an old Clinique color:English Pink (or rose).
    Looks great & comfortable.

    This color looks beautiful on you, and I love the glossiness!

    I have to agree with you, I don't think that one looks quite right for you. It still looks pretty, but I think there are better ones for you…Sorry!

    STUNNING – that's all I have to say…

    Sabrina, what a gorgeous pink on you! Since it looks cool, and I can only wear cool-toned lippies, I am buying one today! It looks like the purr-fect pink. Thanks, and congrats on your Master's.

    Hi ladies, thank you for being so kind even though this isn't super flattering on me!

    I don't know that the cool-toned aspect translates into what you see on the computer screen. I just checked the swatches on my iPhone and it looked a lot more neutral than it does on my computer.

    Agmini – lol, yes, I totally agree. Definitely better ones for olive/yellow girls like me.
