Dolce & Gabbana is one of the most important designing duos in the fashion industry, so it is no wonder that their cosmetics line would include the season’s newest and hottest colors. The “Passion Duo” lipstick collection by Dolce & Gabbana is a large line of thin lipsticks which offer two parts; lipgloss on the inside, creamy lipstick on the outside.
“Passion Duo” lipstick is packaged in a shiny, golden container which is slightly longer and thinner than other brands’ containers. This enables Dolce & Gabbana’s “Passion Duo” lipstick to fit nicely inside a small clutch, box clutch or any small handbag for easy mobility. I also noticed the lipstick is easy to apply with this size container.
When I first opened the “Passion Duo” lipstick container there was a faint, sweet powder scent which was fresh and feminine. This was a nice fragrance which I found to be pleasant in comparison to other lipstick brands which smell a bit waxy.
Dolce & Gabbana’s “Passion Duo” lipstick glides on smoothly without clumping and applies evenly. I tried three colors; “Tropical,” “Exotic” and “Royal.” All of the colors I tested glided on easily with one to two coats and provided full coverage.
There are some lipstick’s out there which need a lip balm or moisturizer applied underneath. This was not the case with Dolce & Gabbana’s “Passion Duo” lipstick. I applied all three of the colors I tested without any lip balm or moisturizer underneath and they all stayed moist without drying my lips or making my lips look chapped. This is a very important point and my favorite part about “Passion Duo!”
I found Dolce & Gabbana’s “Passion Duo” lipstick to be more on the creamy side rather than lipgloss side. The color saturation is amazing and the hues are vibrant. What you see in the container is the color that you see on your lips; this lipstick does not change color on you! Love that!
After testing Dolce & Gabbana’s “Passion Duo” lipsticks for ten days, I give them five out of five stars for being fabulous! By fabulous I mean perfect color saturation, moisturizing, nice scent and convienent packaging.
