Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipsticks ($36; sephora.com) are moisturizing lipsticks with a slightly glossy centre that adds some shine to the otherwise satin finish lipstick. Iridescent is a peachy rose cream with a little bit of shimmer on the centre which almost doesn’t translate much on the lips.
The color payoff is great and the texture is super smooth and creamy. I could feel a little bit of the grit from the shimmer, but it blends well with the lip color and doesn’t get left behind once the color fades. The formula tends to enhance dry patches, but it does't dry lips out too much and keeps them moderately moisturized. The cream finish makes the color last a bit longer, about 4 hours before it starts fading evenly. I love the packaging - its sleek and luxurious. There is quite a strong scent to the lipstick, but it does dissipate quite fast. I expected more of a glossy finish from the formula, but that apart, its a nice luxury lipstick with a really nice, comfortable formula worth trying.
