Dolce & Gabbana Evocative Beauty: Amethyst
Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst Classic Cream Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a semi-opaque, dark, reddened burgundy with a glossy finish. It’s kind of like a cream, but there’s so much shine, describing it as a cream seems inadequate. It’s very smooth and glides on effortlessly, but this is the kind of texture that can bleed more often than not. I recommend using either a matching lip liner or a clear lip liner around the outer edge of the lip to help keep the lip color in its place.
Dolce & Gabbana’s Cream Lipsticks wear an average of four hours on me, but this shade is pigmented and deep enough that I get around five and a half. It is heavily scented with rose, but I mostly smell it in the tube, not so much when worn.

RECOMMENDATION: It’s a nice vampy shade for autumn–it’s bold, dark, but the glossiness keeps it a little lighthearted, too.
