Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick Reviews, Swatches and Photos

March 30th, 2012

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Besides making a stop at the NARS Boutique during my trip to NYC, I also checked out the Dolce & Gabbana Makeup counter at Saks Fifth Avenue and hauled a few goodies, including two Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipsticks.

Dolce & Gabbana Imperial and Infatuation Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick reviews
The Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick is a rich, creamy lip color wrapped around a satin gloss in a sleek, gold tube.

Infatuation is a beautiful bright red that Scarlett Johansson wore for the campaign shoot. It really pops against my dark hair and the blue undertones also make my teeth look whiter. Defintiely my new holy grail red lipstick!

Imperial, supposedly Kim Kardashian’s favorite color, is a gorgeous nude with pink undertones. It goes really well with my NC30 skin tone without washing me out and is perfect with a dramatic smoky eye.

Both lipsticks apply with excellent pigmentation, feel super moisturizing and leave behind tons of shine like a gloss.The staying power is also amazing. The color hardly feathers and stayed on even after a few drinks and a meal. Plus the price tag is comparatively lower than lipsticks that perform just as well, like my favorite Kanebo Sensai Lasting Treatment Rouge Lipsticks. Must get my hands on more! Any color recs?

Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Brushes Review, Photos

Are Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Brushes Worth It?

Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Brushes debuted earlier this year, and despite having much luck with Dolce & Gabbana’s Makeup Line… I’m just not loving their makeup brushes. I actually find them, on the whole, a little scratchy. They are just nowhere near as soft as I expect from quality makeup brushes.

I know that a lot of readers thought the packaging looked very cheap with the gold plating and black handle, but the handles are a very sleek, matte black, which I think offsets the shiny gold plating in a way that’s not quite as “cheap” looking as anticipated. The ferrules also seem tightly in place, and I had very little bristle fall out, even on first use. All of the brushes are made out of natural hair (goat and sable).

  • The Powder Brush ($55.00) is a large, dome-shaped brush with nice fullness, but it is a little scratchy. It’s pretty soft, but sometimes I find it less than pleasant on the skin. It is luxuriously full and dense, though.
  • The Retractable Lip Brush ($29.00) is a small, thin brush that is thick and slightly tapered at the end. It is thicker than the average lip brush, and it’s not quite as wide. I like the firmness it has, and I like that it is retractable with a case, so it can be stored easily in a purse.
  • The Blush Brush ($48.00) is a medium-sized, tapered brush with a subtle dome shape. It works well for applying just the right amount of blush on cheeks as well as highlighting the cheek bones. I found it softer than the Powder Brush but not as soft as I would expect.
  • The Eyeshading Brush ($30.00) is a small, densely-packed dome-shaped eye brush. It is extremely similar to MAC’s 239, but this version seems an itsy bit smaller and firmer. I really liked the shape itself, but it, too, felt a little scratchy when used to blend.
  • The Blending Brush ($32.00) is a fluffy, slightly tapered brush designed for blending eyeshadows. I don’t think I have small eyes necessarily, but I found this brush too big to be all that useful. It may work better if you have larger eyes.

  • Product: 23/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: I do not recommend purchasing these without having tested them in-person. They are not the worst brushes I have tried, and they really aren’t bad–they are decent–but there are better brands (at this price point or lower) out there. If you want to try Dolce & Gabbana, I recommend trying one of their blushes or lipsticks instead!
