|Dolce & Gabbana Only Monica|
Dolce & Gabbana makeup isn't exactly mainstream, so finding swatches online was a bit of a challenge. But after searching high and low, reading all of the blog posts I could, and going back and forth countless times, I decided on 'Only Monica' from the Monica Voluptuous Lipstick line. The Monica in question is the stunning (and very sexy!) Monica Bellucci.
These lipsticks get rave reviews from those in the know--and, based on the one I've tried, rightly so. Only Monica is hands down one of the smoothest, silkiest lipsticks I have ever worn. It continues to feel smooth and even hydrating on the lips even hours after application. What is most impressive about this is that it feels moisturizing on the lips but doesn't feather into fine lines, or slip and slide all over the place (like many other hydrating lipsticks do).
The colour is gorgeous, as well. Only Monica is described as a salmon coral, and it has a slightly glossy finish with a hint of shimmer. The colour is a moderately bright pinky coral, with just a hint of orange. It is a noticeable colour, but not to garish and will be a beautiful colour to wear throughout Spring and Summer.
Dolce & Gabbana Monica Voluptuous Lipsticks are $32.00. Available at Sephora.com.
