Dolce & Gabbana Makeup Saks Exclusives: Caramel Lipstick & Lipgloss

Dolce & Gabbana has released a mini collection exclusive to Saks Fifth Avenue which includes Caramel Lipstick, Caramel Lipgloss, Blossom Eyeshadow Duo and Perfection Nail Polish.

Both the Lipstick and Lipgloss versions of Caramel were described to me as a nude color. Blossom Duo was described as having shades of pink and rose and Perfection Nail Polish was described as a beige cream color.

Since I have been smitten with the Caramel Blush from the holiday collection, I decided to order the lipstick and lipgloss version. When ordering things sight unseen, there's always a chance that something arrives a bit different than expected. I've been lucky to have liked most of the things I've ordered sight-unseen. Caramel Lipstick ended up being a disappointment as soon as I opened the tube. I was expecting a warm caramel nude, instead, it's a beige-grey caramel color. The lipgloss is also more greyish than I expected but seems like it will be more workable. The lipstick will definitely be going back for an exchange. I haven't tested the gloss yet.


The Lipgloss retails for $29 and Lipstick retails for $30.

  1. Is it sad that the second I saw "beige-grey caramel" I thought "oh hell I NEED that NOW!!" =(

    That lipstick looks perfect to me, as does the gloss. I might have to go check it out.

  2. What a shame you weren't happy with the colours, I guess colour descriptions are a very subjective thing. The gloss does look very pretty though

  4. Hi Joey! That's not sad, lol. You know I love nudes, I just think this one will truly make me look dead.

    Stefanie/Catherine - I think I just had it in my mind that they would look like the Caramel blush.

  5. Caramel lipgloss is better than Caramel lipstick.
