Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Petal 135

December 13, 2014

I’ve received a few requests for a lip swatch on the Petal 135 Classic Cream Lipstick I featured in yesterday’s Dolce & Gabbana Beauty roundup. The online stock photos for Petal on my screen look lighter and less saturated in color compared to the real lipstick. I tested out a few of the nudes and Petal is a medium neutral nude pink. It’s the perfect balance between warm and cool, on me it leans slightly warm which works better for my lips.

Here is Petal 135 swatched on bare lips:

For skin tone reference, I am wearing NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation in Punjab (reviewed here) and Dolce & Gabbana Powder Foundation in Warm 100 (reviewed here).

Comparisons added to some other nude pink lipsticks, same set in both photos, just slightly different lighting:

Tom Ford Pink Tease Lip Color Matte (reviewed here)
Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick (reviewed here)
NARS Raquel Audacious Lipstick (swatches here)
Tom Ford Pink Adobe Lip Color
Tom Ford Pink Dusk Lip Color (lip swatch here)
NARS Vanessa Audacious Lipstick (swatched here)
Armani Rouge Ecstasy 103 (review + swatches here)

I hope the lip swatch + comparisons help!
