Dolce & Gabbana Caramel Lipgloss
Dolce & Gabbana Caramel Lip Gloss

A Nude That Works!

Dolce & Gabbana Caramel (50) Lip Gloss ($29.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, medium beige nude with a high shine finish. It tones down my natural lip color without washing me out, which I can definitely appreciate! Unlike some nude glosses, it doesn’t look thick or unnatural, and it doesn’t feel gloopy at all–but there is still some color to it, it’s not just a sheer gloss. There is a touch of tackiness, but I wouldn’t describe these as sticky.

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, which is a little below average for me. These glosses are 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. Overall, they’re nice glosses, but it’s not quite the holy grail.
