The D&G Shine Lipsticks are creamy, and have a lush shimmery, high shine glossiness to them. Wear time is average. They feel light and have quite a bit of slip to them and are more moisturising than the classic cream versions.
The lipsticks have a strong rose scent.
Both shades have good pigmentation. Emotion is a mauve pink with champagne/gold shimmer.
Soiree is a stunning pink coral (£22 each)
I would be buying more of these lipsticks, but there is a problem.
My Soiree arrived off centre and smooshed and almost looked melted. I assumed it was just where it had been stored. After giving photographic evidence, a letter of explanation and a phone call to Harrods, we sent it back and managed to get a replacement.
I open the tube and all looked well, took my pictures for this blog and then I applied it, and the entire lipstick broke off from its base!
I put it back into the tube, but as its completely loose and keeps rubbing against the inside of the casing I can only use it very gingerly with a lip brush, not raised much out of the tube. I find it almost unusable, which is a shame as I adore the colour.
The texture is just too soft and although my Emotion one seems fine, I feel like I need to use it with the lightest hand for fear of the same thing happening. For the price I am just not willing to take the risk that I might have this happen for a third time.
My mother bought these for me from Harrods as a present.
