Dolce & Gabbana Natural Monica Voluptuous Lipstick

Hi everyone! its been a while since I posted lip products. Lip products such as lip gloss and lipstick used to be the only makeup I wear when I was at school but these days, I don’t wear it anymore. I tend too lazy to touch up since lipstick wear off very quickly.  But that doesn’t mean I stop buying them.  I have posted my new lip products in instagram but I just have to review D&G first. Not because it has my name on it (yay!!) but also this is a birthday gift from Meryl. If it wasn’t her, I wouldn’t know they are even existing.



What it is:
A highly pigmented lipstick that gives medium to full coverage in a radiant, satin finish.

What it does:
Thanks to an intense skin-conditioning formula, this lipstick leaves lips looking plump, feeling soft, and appearing voluptuous. The colors are rich and luminous, with a smooth and creamy texture that glides easily on the lips for buildable coverage. Inspired by Monica Bellucci, Dolce & Gabbana’s main muse, the Monica Lipstick embodies the sensuality of the Italian woman.

I totally adore the packaging, of course because it has my name on it. Other than that, this lipstick also very light and very comfy to hold because its rounded shape not like Burberry’s lipsticks.

Texture wise, its very moisturizing. Its almost winter here in Sydney and I didn’t use any lip balm before hand, but it stay put and not drying my lips. It makes more sense in my FOTD picture later in the post.



Above is swatches of D&G, YSL Rouge Volupte in Nude Beige, and Burberry Lip Cover in Cameo. All are very moisturizing but color wise, I prefer this D&G because like its name Natural Monica, it is very natural. Suitable for me who didn’t brave enough to wear bold color lipstick. Maybe someday I will!


Bottom line: In love with the packaging! Good texture and nice color too! but I guess many lip products with similar shade in cheaper price. This D&G retail for approx. AU$35.

Thanks for reading!

Dolce & Gabbana Blush in Provocative


This review has been sitting for few weeks as a draft and finally I had the time to finalize the review of this product. Provocative is my first ever Dolce & Gabbana blush, so I am really excited to try whether I’d like this blush. My experience with Dolce & Gabbana eyeshadow quad has been very positive, and I hope I’d have the same feeling with this blush too. You can read my review of Dolce & Gabbana quad in Vulcano here


The Packaging:

The casing is made of gold metal casing that looks reflective. There’s a Dolce & Gabbana written on it. The casing feels heavy and it’s prone to finger print. It also comes with a black velvety pouch and a mini size brush. I like the packaging of this blush as it feels luxurious and elegant. Although it’s prone to finger print, I really like the gold metal casing of this blush. It looks regal, royal 🙂





The Shade & Texture:

Provocative is a matte bubble gum pink. There’s a hint of blue undertone in this blush. The texture of this blush is pretty good and finely milled. Although it feels soft enough, I don’t think that it feels buttery to me. It’s not as buttery as Burberry’s or Illamasqua. The pigmentation is good but not the best.

I have tested quite a number of blushes and if I would have to compare D&G blush with other brand, I’d say that D&G blushes is good but not the best for me. Burberry blushes and Illamasqua are by far my favorite brand for blushes. Those brands never fails to wow me. D&G feels on par with Le Metier de Beaute or Chanel. I love Le Metier de Beaute & Chanel blushes, but still my fave is from Burberry & Illamasqua 🙂

The Swatch & Look:

When swatched on my hand, you can see that it’s a really pink blush. However when I apply it onto my face, you can see that it leans more to coral pink. I applied this blush using my Tom Ford Cheek Brush very lightly. This blush is buildable, so if you want the shade to be true to pan, you  can always add another layer.



Firstly I contoured my cheek with NARS Bronzer in Laguna  and I topped it off with thin layer of Provocative.



Final Thought:

Provocative is a beautiful bubblegum pink shade that’s lovely to own. I won’t say that this blush is a must have but this is definitely a must for blush collector 😉 I just can’t resist the luxurious feeling of having this blush 🙂

Dolce & Gabbana Eyeshadow Quad in 135 Vulcano

Hello everyone,

I am glad that we are finally heading the end of the week again. I hope your weekdays have been great 🙂

Today I am going to review my first ever Dolce & Gabbana make up product. I have been reading lots of review about D&G make up brands and most of them say nothing but good thing. I relied heavily on online swatches to decide the shade that I want. I chose Vulcano as my first D&G purchase. I hope I’d be happy with my first purchase. To know what I think about this eyeshadow quad, please keep reading 🙂





The Packaging:

Dolce & Gabbana eyeshadow quad comes in a reflecting gold metal case. It’s heavy and it could feel a little bit bulky. Like most branded make up brands, Dolce & Gabbana also comes with a black velvet pouch. The eyeshadow comes with “DG” embossed in it. The metal case is very prone to finger print. I had minor difficulties taking pictures with it :p


The Texture & Color:

Vulcano consist of 4 shades which leans to orange & plums. The two colors at the top leans more to warm orange and the two colors at the bottom leans more towards plums. I would describe the shade on the upper left as shimmery champagne shade. The upper right shade is a soft mocha with a hint of orange. The bottom left shade is a cranberry purple and at the botton right is a dark plum.

The texture of the eyeshadow is buttery, smooth and pigmented. The texture reminds me of Burberry eyeshadow, they are really similar! I would even say that the soft mocha shade feels even softer and more buttery than some of my Burberry eyeshadows. The pigmentation is up to my expectation; the colors are true to pan. It does not disappoints at all! Blending the colors is a splendid thing to do; it blends beautifully 🙂




The Look:

Firstly I’d like to apologize with the imperfection of my false eyelash application. I had a horrible time applying the lashes on that day, but finally I decided to just confidently show this picture to you all 🙂 I hope you’d understand.

Anyway you might have seen my overall look in this post. I had the same look posted in my review of Guerlain Sakura – Cherry Blossom Blush 




Final Thought:

Overall I have no regret buying this quad! It satisfied all my expectation in a luxury brand eyeshadow 🙂


Thank you for reading
