Thank you for posting that lucy, I hadn't really paid attention to that feature but the look is gorgeous! PeonyinPearls, the lipstick in that ad is the Classic Cream Lipstick in Devil.

So here's some swatches & thoughts on what I bought

It's so hard to get a really good picture of the lipstick, because the colour is sooo incredible. Very pigmented, not drying & good staying power but it is a high maintenance look...you definitely need lip liner & lip brush to apply because the colour is strong and mistakes will be really obvious. And it's very dramatic but I think it's a colour that will work for anybody

Both these are without flash & in natural day light - I would say the 2nd swatch is closest, but in the first you can see more the blue/pink tones.




The quad - I like it because it has both shimmery & matte colours. The white/silvery is a nice highlighter or base colour, the grey is gorgeous has gold glitter which is quite obvious but cool effect. The black and brown are both matte, velvety rich colours. With the swatch, I used the sponge applicators which I don't think give the best colour, with brushes it's much better. The first set is just swatched, and the second set is with Mac Fix+ so they're applied wet & you can see the colour better.

Has anyone tried their nude lipstick? There's one in one of the ads that looks really nice and smooth and I'm looking for a nude lipstick

I just tried this line last week but I'm currently adoring it. The texture of the lipsticks is so smooth and wonderful and the gloss isn't sticky at all. I also picked up the powder foundation which is really lovely as well. All in all I'm quite pleased with the color selection as well as the quality, the price is quite high but honestly its Dolce so what can one expect? I have an appointment for the store event on the 16th so I'm trying to hold off buying anything new until then but it will be difficulut since I'm such a product junkie Here is what I picked up so far. The flash throws the colors off but you can get an idea. I can't wait to try the eyeshadows

There's no emoticon for what I'm feeling right now

Let us know how you get on, any words of wisdom! I'd love to know what kind of looks she'll create because the shows are always beautiful

I bought a Dolce & Gabbana lipstick from the classic line, the one named ULTRA.
It is SO film noir True red with added black.
The added black ensures that its not clownish bold.. just really elegant.

Is Ultra the lipstick that was used in the picture below? The colour reminds me of red cherries going slightly black.. I can't find a shade like that anywhere! (source: style.com)
