Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick

Strong lipstick in summer? What do you mean SUMMER? (We're back in the opaques, with the heating on.)

But whatever the time of year, this is one of the most sublime creamy lipsticks we've ever used, from Dolce & Gabbana's glamorous make-up line:  rich, velvety, super-pigmented, and with a delicate powdery rose fragrance - like the proper, grown-up lipstick it is.

Loads of shades, but we're loving deep, deep cherry Dahlia.

And if you want to know just how a lipstick can embody instant glamour...?  We think you'll enjoy looking at their film about it with Monica Bellucci, here.
