Dolce & Gabbana Sunset Lip Gloss

The Spring Season: Dolce & Gabbana Sunset Lip Gloss

Dolce & Gabbana Sunset Lip Gloss ($29.00) is a golden shimmered coral-peach gloss. It’g oes on sheerly, but it adds enough color to change-up your natural lip color, plus add a healthy dose of shimmer on top. Dolce & Gabbana’s lipglosses do have a heavy rose scent, so those with sensitive noses or fragrance-free preferences may not enjoy this particular gloss. It feels slightly tacky, but it’s really nothing to worry over (it’s not at all as sticky as MAC Lipglass). It can be applied in thin layers and built up a little for a thicker, glossier feel/look or to intensify the shimmer. I find two coats is the perfect amount for me. This gloss lasts a few hours on my lips on its own, and it’s colored enough (at least on my lips) to allow me to wear it alone, if I so choose.

Is this the right gloss for you? Would you wear it?

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

Temptalia is extraordinarily pleased to be able to bring you an exclusive review of the Clarisonic by renowned skincare esthetician and expert Renée Rouleau! It’s a very informative and thorough review and read with invaluable information for improving your skincare routine and ensuring it is doing the most for your skin.  You can visit her blog for more skincare advice and tips!

Is Clarisonic harmful or helpful? Renée Rouleau gives a review….

Let me start by saying that I normally don’t do reviews of other skin care products. I use my blog as a place to talk and share my thoughts on what I know to be true about skin from being an esthetician for 22 years, but I leave product reviews for all of the great beauty bloggers out there.

My reason for doing a review on Clarisonic is because I have observed changes in my client’s skin that use the brush, and some of the changes have not been beneficial to the health of their skin. Since my goal is to offer helpful skin care tips to allow you to become a smarter skin care consumer, I feel that this is important information to share.
