From the moment I first saw this lipstick I just knew I had to have it! Dolce & Gabbana is not a brand that I have bought from before but I knew this lipstick would be something special. Dolce & Gabbana created this lipstick in tribute to Sophia Loren. A true icon in every sense of the word. Classic and beautiful in equal measures. The lipstick is just as expected and very unique. Described as being a cherry red it was designed to enhance the deep pigmentation of Sophia’s lips. It really is, as Dolce & Gabbana say, her red – but it works so well for me too.
Sophia Loren No.1 comes in a beautiful classy gold tube embossed with Dolce & Gabbana on the base and Sophia Loren’s autograph on the side. The colour in the tube is more of a plum colour and the swatch shows how this colour translates. Its hard to describe this colour as a ‘my lips but better’ shade but that really is what it is. My lips are naturally darker in colour and this colour just lifts them while giving them a beautiful rich glossy shine.
The lipstick is very light and makes my lips very soft. It is easy to build up to your desired look. The lipstick has the lovely signature powdery rose fragrance. I know some people find this a little too much, but I love it! It just adds to the vintage, classic feel of the lipstick.
Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren No.1 Lipstick is available exclusively from Harrods and is priced at £31.00. This lipstick is very expensive, there is no doubt about that. It is however a lipstick like no other I own both in formula and colour. The packaging is enough to make even a non makeup junkie swoon so will be perfect for getting out of my clutch bag at christmas parties!
I hope you enjoyed this little insight into the colour on my lips today! I would love to hear from you if you have this lipstick or if you can recommend any other Dolce & Gabbana product. Feel free to leave me a comment!
Talk to you all soon x
