Dolce & Gabbana Splendid Lipstick

The Summer Season: Dolce & Gabbana Splendid Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Splendid Lipstick ($30.00) is an opaque, medium pink that’s bright enough to attract attention to your pout, but not so bright it’s obnoxious.  This is a nice in-between pink that’s good for wearability in particular.  I love that it’s such a nice medium pink but still opaque.  It also has a glossy sheen without being shimmery.  All Dolce & Gabbana lipsticks are rose-scented, for the scent-wary.  I like it, but I’ve yet to run into a fragranced lipstick I don’t like.  I get four to five hours of wear with this lipstick formula, too, which is a bit above average.

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

NARS Funny Face Lipstick

The Summer Season: NARS Funny Face Lipstick

NARS Funny Face Lipstick ($24.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened cherry-fuchsia with an iridescent fuchsia sheen.  It’s an opaque, rich color that’s bright and pink and red and fuchsia all at the same time.  It wears well and leaves behind a stain after two to three hours as it begins to fade, because it is so pigmented.  It’s scent- and taste-free, though there was a slight waxy scent (but I don’t attribute that as fragrance).  Not ultra moisturizing but not drying either–smooth application and no bleeding.

Illamasqua Fume Intense Lipgloss

The Summer Season: Illamasqua Fume Intense Lipgloss

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss Fume ($20.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a juicy, glossy cherry red.  It makes your lips look like perfectly ripened, candy-apple red or luscious, summer-ripened cherries.  Either way, the color and finish is pretty sexy.  It’s bright, but it really is more wearable than you’d think, because it has that gloss texture.  It’s very rich and opaque, and it wears about three to four hours and leaves a residual, persisting stain for a few more.

Milani Cabana Coral Lipstick

The Summer Season: Milani Cabana Coral Lipstick

Milani Cabana Coral Lipstick ($4.99) is a shimmering coral-orange with a frosty golden shimmer-sheen. It’s nearly opaque, and it’s bright without being blinding. It wears for two to three hours, but the formula is smooth, rich in color, and lightweight on lips.  I like that it’s noticeably orange, but it’s a lot more wearable than true oranges.

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Neon Orange Lipstick

MAC Neon Orange Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a traffic-stopping opaque neon orange.  The name really says it all — it’s bright, in-your-face, and exactly orange.  It’s unabashedly orange, and you won’t see it apologizing for anything any time soon!  It has such a smooth texture with incredibly rich, opaque color.  The finish is creamy, but it has a little bit of a sheen that lights it up.   It really has an amazing feel, and it is one of MAC’s best lipsticks in terms of quality–even if the color may be a little hard to wear!

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

The Summer Season: MAC Chatterbox Lipstick

MAC Chatterbox Lipstick ($14.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an opaque, pretty-in-pink lipstick. It’s a smidgen on the cooler side, but it’s a rather neutral pink overall. It has a creamy feel while still clinging to lips–the slight creaminess keeps it from being drying. One of the best things about Chatterbox is it’s a standout pink, but it’s not bright, neon, or overwhelming in any way. It’s great with a lighter smoky eye, or you can slick on a sheer nude gloss to mute the color a bit more, too, and pair it with a smoldering eye!
