I've received a few requests for a lip swatch on the Petal 135 Classic Cream Lipstick I featured in yesterday's Dolce & Gabbana Beauty roundup. The online stock photos for Petal on my screen look lighter and less saturated in color compared to the real lipstick. I tested out a few of the nudes and Petal is a medium neutral nude pink. It's the perfect balance between warm and cool, on me it leans slightly warm which works better for my lips.
Here is Petal 135 swatched on bare lips:
For skin tone reference, I am wearing NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation in Punjab (reviewed here) and Dolce & Gabbana Powder Foundation in Warm 100 (reviewed here).
Comparisons added to some other nude pink lipsticks, same set in both photos, just slightly different lighting:
Tom Ford Pink Adobe Lip Color
Tom Ford Spanish Pink Lip Color
I hope the lip swatch + comparisons help!
