New Dolce & Gabbana Monica Lipstick Review and Swatches & Should I return my shoes?



I think one of the most beautiful women on earth is Italian goddess actress Monica Bellucci. Man,  she takes my breath away, When I heard Dolce & Gabbana was releasing their new Monica lipstick in honor of her, I was super excited. When I received them in the mail, well I nearly did a back flip!! The two colors I received for consideration were Magnetic Monica and Chic Monica.

I always like to exfoliate my lips thoroughly before applying any lipstick but I didn't need to that with the Dolce & Gabbana Monica Lippies! These lipsticks are incredibly creamy and hydrating. When I applied both Chic Monica and Magnetic Monica,  my lips felt insanely moisturized. And the colors are so rich. These applied opaque with just one application. Chic Monica is a pink red with a satin finish. Magnetic Monica is a medium plum with a satin finish as well. JLO's makeup artist, Scott Barnes once told me not to wear dark lippys because they can make you look older, but I didn't mind Magnetic Monica, in fact I kind of liked it.






How do these rate? An A+. They last a good four hours before reapplication is necessary, and even the scent of these, kind of like a rose, is wonderful. I highly recommend these lippies!

Here's me with Chic Monica:

How was your weekend? Mine was great. Sunday, we went to an NYC street fair. Love those.


Then I went to Zara and bought a few things including the below shoes.  I'm trying to decide if I should return them. I like them, but I'm not obsessed with them. What do you think?


What are your thoughts on the D&G Monica Lipsticks?

I agree, Monica Belluci has that ethereal beauty. I like both shades on you, I'm kind of drawn towards the darker lippy.

I like the darker Monica. As for the shoes, I don't think they look like you. The straps are too wide, I think.

Not really feeling the shoes. Not sure why though. I would get a smaller heel in a less neutral color. Love the lipsticks though!

I love the look of the Magnetic Monica l/s. I think you should return the shoe. I went fishing over the weekend with my hubby.

Love the lighter shade on you. And if you're not crazy about the shoes, return them! Save that money for the stuff you LOVE!
