Dolce & Gabbana Does Coral for Fall

Dolce & Gabbana Cosmopolitan (237) Classic Cream Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a vibrant coral with a softer orange undertone–it’s almost a true coral. It has a creamy finish and feel accompanied by a glossy shine. It applies easily and evenly with opaque color in a single layer. This shade would be flattering on warmer skin tones, especially those with yellow undertones.

I get an average of four hours of wear with Dolce & Gabbana’s Classic Cream Lipsticks, and I find them comfortable to wear, but I would not describe them as moisturizing (but not drying either). All Dolce & Gabbana’s lipsticks are heavily rose-scented, and I do consider them some of the heaviest scented products I’ve come across. If you aren’t keen on roses, you may find these too strong.

  • Product: 28/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: Though it feels like a color that is really more suited for summer, Dolce & Gabbana seem to think otherwise, which gives me an excuse to rock coral even as the temperatures drop.  This is a shade that would work best on warmer skin tones, even better on darker skin tones.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase a Cosmopolitan? How much is it?

Saks, $30.

Is it limited edition?


Any dupes?

MAC Vegas Volt is similar, though it is noticeably lighter. Illamasqua's Mistress is a lipgloss version that is a touch darker.

    OMG…this colour is gorgeous! And it looks so great on you! Wow!

  2. Marian

    That’s absolutely gorgeous!

  3. Erin

    That color is beautiful on you!

  4. divinem (Melissa)

    Not for me but gorgeous on you, Christine.

  5. Jennifer

    I think this is really pretty and looks nice on you!

    I think this kind of orange/true coral that is bright but yet slightly muted, is the answer to the bright orange lip trend. It’s just more wearable. However I wouldn’t spend this much on a l/s I wouldn’t wear much.

    I do have Vegas Volt, so I’ll have to try that out again. (I’ve forgotten how it looks on me lol).

    I only have one D and G lipstick, and it’s the shine or sheer formula in Soiree. Which looks like a natural pink lip color but in the tube looks like a slight pink coral, but the finish and way it feels on the lips is amazing. It’s like a lipgloss and a lip balm , but as a lipstick.

    Oh my!! Gorgeous color, very flattering on you!
    I’d feel great in this one, unfortunately D&G makeup is not available in my country… bleh… :(

    Love! Coral lips are so stunning, I’ll pick it up if I happen to win a cruise to the bahamas this winter. 😉

    i really want to get my hands on the dolce and gabbana makeup! i love some of the lipstick colours.

  11. Loving the color, but I’m neither warm skin nor dark skin, so… :/

    • Crissy

      So? I’m super light and pink-toned but I would rock it! Wear whatever you want, there are no rules in makeup. :)

  12. Bernice

    So gorgeous !

  13. Shontay

    I definitely have to get this! It’ll be my first D&G product.

  14. Eileen

    What a gorgeous colour …. makes me think of Florida. Wish I were there now … it’s snowing like heck here in Montreal ;-(

  15. Lindy

    This shade was made for you-it looks stunning!

  16. ak

    That color was made for you Christine.

  17. Steph

    AAH I LOVE THIS. I don’t see why different colours have to be for different seasons. I understand a red lip is festive for the winter season, but when it’s so dreary outside and I don’t bother with too much eye makeup because it’s -30 out in a snowstorm and it will just come off, I love a nice happy-coloured lip!

  18. Kerrie

    Holy cow! I doubt I could pull it off but that is beautiful! Christine, for real, you need to put THAT in your regular lipstick lineup. That color is stunning on you.

  19. Victoria

    Oh My God. This is so beautiful!!!!

  20. Lady Di.

    Oh I just love how opaque this is and the shade is beautiful!

  21. Hilary♥

    This color is ok, just a little too bright. A good dupe for it would be Lime Crime Cosmo lipstick. I think they look alike.

  22. Roma

    this looks very similar to Jazzed by MAC, to me on here. Is it even close, though?

  23. ann

    I have a VERY SIMILAR color but it’s by YSL.

  24. Jennifer F

    Luuuurrvvvley colour. I have Vegas Volt on my wishlist and I imediately thought of that colour when I saw this so I think when I next to go MAC I will have to pick up that colour.

  25. Holly

    Omg its the perfect coral color! Can you please swatch it next to vegas volt?
