Well, hello D&G, stepping right out of the comfort zone with these beautiful Sicilian Jewel lipsticks.
The shades are definitely going to challenge our ideas about what to wear on lips, but the packaging is gorgeous with fat studs of ‘jewel’ on the top.
So here we are: the red is Ruby, the green is Emerald, the purple is Amethyst and the pale gold shade is Topaz.
So, what do you think? Will you be wearing green or purple lips? I think what you could say is they reflect their theme of jewels very well – in the same way you can have fun with jewellery and dress it up or down, lipsticks in these shades – particularly green – can be either vampy-sophisticated or plain and simple fun. The shades are all well pigmented; Ruby is the most obviously wearable in a deep red with a slight sheen; Amethyst has a nuance of metallic in the sheen, Topaz doesn’t look quite so pale gold on – I think it would make a good top-coat for other shades, and Emerald, well, that is just exactly as it looks – very green!
The Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian Jewels are launching into Harrods on 1st November for £27 each.
