Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Lipgloss

Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Lipgloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deepened burgundy berry with soft violet and burgundy micro-shimmer.  It’s semi-opaque with decent color pay off and definitely gives lips a darker, vampier look, but my natural lip color does peek through.  What I really liked about this gloss though was how despite the deeper color, it did not settle into lip lines.

my thoughts on the formula: Dolce & Gabbana Lip Glosses are moisturizing, and they fade really well when they wear away. With this particular shade, I was able to get a solid four hours of wear. These glosses are heavily rose-scented but don’t seem to have any taste. With just 0.13 oz. in a tube (compared to 0.20 oz. for other high-end brands like Chanel, Guerlain, and YSL), these are pricey.

B+
It's pretty and should be flattering on both cool and warmer skin tones, though it will be particularly beautiful against pale, cool skin.

    It’s too bad Dolce & Gabbana can’t put more product in the tube for the price. They really do make some lovely glosses, and I think sheer berries like this are a great way to transition into darker colors for people who don’t feel comfortable wearing them.

  3. I’m totally digging this!

    I like the shade. Looks nice on you, but I think it’ll hardly stay longer than an hour.

  6. Oooh, this is beautiful!

    Hi Christine. I have been trying to leave a couple of comments on some posts, but you are not approving them. I would like to know why.

    • I have no idea what comments you are referring to. It shows you have 18 comments all approved? There are no comments pending from you. Perhaps you were looking too soon? Comments are *manually* approved, so it may take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours – depending on whether or not I am at the computer… If you asked me a question, then I do not approve your comment until I am able to answer you, which may take several days. Temptalia receives a large volume of comments through the blog alone, and unfortunately, I am not able to reply immediately, and for that I apologize. Are you sure you are looking on all pages of the comments? Many posts have multiple pages of comments – we only show about ~100 comments per page, sorted by oldest to newest.
