The Summer Season: Dolce & Gabbana Fascination Lipstick

Dolce & Gabbana Fascination (#165) Shine Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a creamy, semi-opaque shade of pinky-lilac. It’s not exactly purple, but it’s not a perfect, petal pink, either. It lies closer to pink than purple, but there’s a definite lilac edge. The color is very wearable, both on warm and cool skin tones, which isn’t always easy to find when a lipstick is naturally cooler toned. I get three to four hours of wear with Dolce & Gabbana’s lipsticks, which are rose-scented and taste-free (to me!).

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

The Summer Season is a series of posts featuring bright, vibrant shades of coral, orange, and pink lipsticks and lipglosses — all perfect for a summer of fun — that runs through July 2010.

    That is such a pretty pink. Fuchsia pinks look best on my olive/tan skin tone. It looks pretty pigmented but moisturising at the same time. Not loving the price though :(

    This is such a pretty colour. Is it similar to MAC’s Lovelorn or Smashbox’s Sweet? I have both and they look like the D and G lipstick on me, but that may be because I am very fair.

    A cheaper alternative is Urban Decay’s LOVECHILD! Which is a DEAD ON MATCH! It’s only $22!!
