The Summer Season: Dolce & Gabbana Fuchsia Shine Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Fuchsia (#150) Shine Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a beautiful softened fuchsia-pink (actually, it strikes me as a peony pink!) with iridescent light pink shimmer and a glossy shine.  It almost has a glow to it.  It’s not a true fuchsia, because it’s really quite pink and doesn’t have the purple tones that most fuchsia lipsticks have.  The color pay off is excellent with complete opaque color.  I get around four to five hours of wear with this shade, and it’s moisturizing from start to finish.  Dolce & Gabbana Lipsticks are rose-scented, so those with more sensitive sniffers may find it a bit too much.

Is this the right pink for you? Would you wear it?
