The Spring Season: Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Classic Cream Lipstick (#130) ($27.00) is a beautiful soft pinky-rose. It has a semi-sheer look that looks very natural on lips. Even though it’s not opaque, it’s one of those “You don’t know I’m wearing lipstick” kind of shades. It’s just a very subtle hue and the color clings and never looks heavy. It is, though, surprisingly not as pigmented as several of the other Classic Cream shades I’ve tried, unfortunately. I like the way the results regardless, but I just thought I’d note that quality.

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

The Spring Season is a series of posts featuring my favorite soft beige, coral, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for the first blossom of spring — that runs through March 2010.

    That is super pretty! I think it might be my fave yet! Do you know of a similar mac or drugstore colour?

  2. Grace

    Wow it almost matches your lip color, looks really good on you Hun!

  3. DonnaN

    oh, this is SO pretty! I’m not familiar with this lipstick texture, is it creamy and moisturizing?

    Ahhh! So beautiful :) I feel like a bunch of these lipsticks you’re featuring in the Spring Season are colors I have been seeking for a long time. But all the ones I like are the most expensive ones :) (Guerlain Gentiane Rouge G and Lancome Voile de Rose are the other two I’m lusting after).

    Thank you for doing all of these swatches, it gives me an idea of where to go when I go to Sephora and Nordstrom. Otherwise I’d be totally lost!

    Another beauty! I can’t wait until you comply these into one post for comparisons like you did for The Scarlet Season.

  6. Absolutely gorgeous !
    I NEED this one … No I only need to find out where the heck they sell D&G @ Belgium !

  7. omg .. want to have! this is the most beautiful lipstick I’ve ever seen!

  8. I really liked the Scarlett season, but I think I like the Spring Season even more. This color is beautiful!! Adding to my list of must buys! :)

    Beautiful color, looks great on you. I’ve seen identical shades for less than $27 though. It’s the color I wear the most.

    oh my gosh, soo pretty! All these pink lipsticks you’re featuring are KILLING ME! or my wallet, I mean :) This kind of reminds me of MAC’s cute-ster lipstick, which I LOVE but am afraid to use for fear of running out! I hope this is a close dupe…

    Oh so very pretty, i am wondering if this would work for me? Hmmmmmmm….

  12. Anitacska

    Very pretty!

    Off topic, Christine, can you help me please? I’m trying to find the looks that you did with Guerlain Bal de Nuit and Tsarina eyeshadow quads, I’m pretty sure you did do some, but can’t find them. I have searched by Guerlain, looks, everything, but just can’t locate them! Thanks.

    I so should not look at these (as I stare into my poor abused wallet), I love rosey pinks!

  14. Rosie

    I like this one. I would definitely wear it :).

  15. Jennifer

  16. akcmommy

  19. Alexis

  20. akcmommy

    Might MAC slimshine in Intimidate be a close dupe?
