At first look, I had these Dolce & Gabbana Shine Lipsticks down as unwearable. But, on swatching, they’re anything but – in fact, they’re pretty amazing. I know that grey gloss has existed before, but I can’t remember a grey lipstick so I tried this on with huge trepidation!
The grey is called Moon and it gives a metallic gleam with silver tones to the lip – let me tell you, your lips need to be in perfect condition to carry this one! But once on, it does that vampy thing – if I wasn’t such a lipstick coward, I’d put this over a strong, deep wine shade and really go for it a la Grace Jones. The white shade is Crystal, and puts a gleaming, milky slick on your lips – it doesn’t completely white them out, but on its own it would be a very specific look. Shimmer Nude is the most versatile I think – put this over any colour lipstick to give it vibrancy, high sheen and glamour – I’d even suggest you can pop a tiny amount onto cheek bones to give definition and a sheen. Finally, Angel Rose is the pink shade and it’s an easy wear – twinkly, pretty with plenty of glisten.
So, the Dolce & Gabbana Shine Lipsticks aren’t as hard to wear as they look. If you’re feeling spendy, they’re a lovely addition as lipstick toppers to transform your day lip to evening glam. As you can see, each lipstick has a gem stone effect on the top – Dolce & Gabbana are all about the rocks and there’s nothing understated about these.
At £28 they’re definitely a luxury buy but they really do feel super glamorous and I love that they’re useful and adaptable, too. You can find them HERE. I should mention that there’s also a new palette for holiday look – nowhere near as exciting as the lips.
At £39, I’d take the lippies any day.

Too lazy for swatches? What’s the bloody point then? Jesus.
Hands up… forgot to put them in! They’re in now. Hope you get less angry one day 😉
I am not really feeling these shines, not really my style
Very festive colors!
