The Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren No.1 Lipstick caused such a stir across Instagram over the weekend – it’s a D&G tribute to the lady herself. I’ve had a sneaky look at one of the ad campaign images in which Sophia is wearing this colour and it is the perfect shade for her.

Unless I’ve misunderstood the term ‘cherry red’ all of my life, I don’t know why the Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren No.1 Lipstick is being described as a red. To me, it’s all pink! A kind of understated, nude shot pink… is it just me?

Either way, it’s a sumptuous colour and certainly an every-age shade – I would wear this and so would my mum (in fact, I’m going to keep it for her because it really is her perfect hue) and it’s made to a shine formula which means it has sheen without gloss.

If you’re inclined, you can register to buy one (on dolcegabbanabeauty.com) in six days or hang on until it launches in Harrods on 21st September. If you are registering, you should check that you don’t end up on a mailing list you don’t want to be on – I haven’t completed the registration process so I don’t know what happens when you go all the way through. The Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren No.1 Lipstick is £31.
