The Scarlet Season: Dolce & Gabbana Ruby Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Ruby Shine Lipstick ($30.00) is a beautiful, shimmery raspberry red lip color. It’s a semi-sheer lipstick formula, but I actually found it to be quite opaque. I mean, if this is semi-sheer, I wish all semi-sheer lipsticks were gave me this kind of coverage! :) It has lovely pinky-raspberry shimmer that’s subtle but still sparkles in the light. The feeling, texture, and payoff of this lipstick reminds me a bit of Guerlain’s Rouge G formula (and it’s $15 less!)–smooth, moisturizing, and even.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

    Stunning! It *does* look like an opaque colour with a semi-sheer finish, eh?

    Either way, this looks absolutely amazing on you. I wish I could find D&G in Canada!

    That’s exactly the kind of red lipstick I’ve been searching for. Looks great Christine!

    This is a really gorgeous shade of red. D&G aren’t available near me, so will skip it though.

    This is pretty and I like the pink tones in it, which makes it look like pink grapefruit.

    Such a great color, what a shame that it is not available in Germany yet :(

    ooh this is soo pretty!
    i’m not quite ready for the hardcore, intense red lip yet, so this is perfect for me! it’s very soft compared to some of your other scarlet season posts i’ve seen, and i’m totally digging that!
    thanxx [:

    Wow! I’m not usually a red lip kind of girl, but this shade is awesome! It would be a splurge for me, but I just might have go for it!

  11. it’s definitely not as RED as the other colors from the scarlet season… but i guess that’s why i’m more inclined to buying it. reds look awful on me, lol!
