I am seriously conflicted… life is very difficult when you have not 1 but 2 favorites #onepairoflipsonly #firstworldproblem. I had waxed lyrical about these lipsticks before, but that was before I received my very first Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick.
This line of lipsticks is not new to the brand, but since it is not widely available outside of the US, I had not been able to try one until now. And boy was I blown away! The Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick range features a creamy formula with a satin gloss stick hidden in the center. It is amazingly smooth to apply, 1 swipe affords full opacity. I had expected a balmy sort of color payoff, so I was stunned by the intensity of the color.
Amaryllis is 1 of 5 new shades launched this Summer 2014 under Dolce & Gabbana’s Summer Glow Collection. It is a mauve-y pink that is neutral toned and works well for most skin types. It is one of those everyday shades that people will feel comfortable wearing to the office, and yet still packs enough color to look like you’re making an effort and transitions well into the evening.
Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick feels moisturizing and very comfortable on the lips. It is on par with Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipsticks in terms of creaminess and comfort, which makes it my new 2nd favorite! But where Guerlain Kiss Kiss tends to be semi sheer and glossy, the Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick is opaque and gives a satin finish. Given the difference, I think there is room enough in my life for 2 favorites! What about you?
