Behold the epitome of lipstick luxury! These beauties hail from Dolce & Gabbana’s Passion Duo Summer Pleasures Collection which is out now and consists of 10 divine lipsticks and 5 beautiful nail shades. I got my hands on three of the lippies in question and I’m not going to beat around the bush here; they are to die for. Lets have some photographic evidence, shall we?
Yes indeed. Now, what intrigued me as soon as I clapped eyes on them (apart from the lust-worthy packaging) was the two differing shades within each tube. This is the duo element and is in fact a double whammy of pigmentation would you believe! Although the central shade looks different, the colour you get is still the same as the main outer shade. The texture of the lipsticks is truly a thing to behold; thick and creamy but incredibly smooth at the same time. Unsurprisingly, the pigmentation is immense and although I don’t usually post swatch pictures I’ve an exception in this case as the picture below show’s off just one light handed swatch! Amazing, no?
The three shades in the pictures are all totally gorgeous; Fatale – the perfect red, Exotic – a hot fuchsia pink and Royal – an amazing dark berry brown (which reminds me of the lippy Keira Knightley is sporting on the cover of Harpers Bazaar September issue). I particularly love Exotic and had to smush it on my lips immediately, which explains why you can’t really see the different colour in the center of the tube in the second picture of this post, ha!
Suffice to say, the price point of these is as one would expect, pretty steep! At the equivalent of 33 euro’s a tube we’re looking at a serious lipstick investment here, albeit a rather luxurious one that would still any lipstick loving heart. What do you think? Will you be searching these out?
