Dolce & Gabbana Bon Bon Lip Gloss
Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2011: Bon Bon
Dolce & Gabbana Bon Bon Lip Gloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a pale, milky cotton candy pink with ultra-fine shimmer. It’s semi-opaque, and with its creamier finish, it does settle into lip lines, which I did find was noticeable even from afar. I would recommend wearing a light pink or nude lipstick underneath to minimize the lip gloss settling into the lines.
my thoughts on the formula: Dolce & Gabbana Lip Glosses are moisturizing, and they fade really well when they wear away. I only get about two to three hours of wear (this one just under four), which is a little below average for me. 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.

final thoughts: This pink should suit light to medium skin tones, both cool and warm, because it doesn’t have strong cool undertones. It may wash out deeper skin tones, though. I also want to reiterate that Dolce & Gabbana glosses have a very strong rose scent.
