Sophia No.1

On September 21st, Dolce and Gabbana will be hoisting an “exclusive experience” at the Dolce & Gabbana Boutique in Corso Venezia 7, Milan – the hoopla?  A “unique shade of red, ” special tribute lipstick in honor of Italian siren Sophia Loren…”Sophia Loren No. 1” (you can pre-order yours by clicking the link!)

The main Dolce image felt rather vibrant to me…and not nearly as “red” as I anticipated – I was expecting to see something less magenta, perhaps? It is still rather striking.  That said, I saw a few more images on BritishBeautyBlogger…which had me a bit perplexed.

It looks a lot less OOMPH-ie in the tube in a true photo (though let’s be fair, photos and colors are always tricky to judge on a screen.)

Hmmm…

I’m thinking to myself…it really wouldn’t matter if Sophia was wearing it and it WASN’T as bold as the ad, now would it?  She’s so gorgeous she could wear a 99 cent lippie and be red-carpet ready no matter!

I’m curious to see more swatches of it – I actually think the Dolce lipsticks, while perhaps less “go-to” than other brands – are pretty fabulous – I’ve not seen a color that wasn’t as yet.  Worth checking out…if you are a Sophia-diva fan…or you just love your lippies!
