The Classic Cream lipstick is the heart of
the Dolce and Gabbana Make Up collection.
Of course it is inspired by Italian women of the Fifties
with their elegance and above all their smile,
always accentuated by a dash of lipstick:
the embodiment of make-up and the secret to such
an impeccable and typically Italian look.

The lips are the symbol of the Dolce and Gabbana woman.
The elegant and flirty gesture of applying lipstick
epitomises the very concept of femininity.
“A woman’s lips are the key to her seductiveness.
For us, lipstick is poetry and beauty. It can make every woman memorable.”
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
Here at Sparkle Style we received a beautiful Dolce and Gabbana bag
containing a selection of five of the Classic Cream lipsticks including
Devil and Petal that Monica Bellucci wears in the Ads shot by Domenico Dolce
under the Creative Direction of Stefano Gabbana.
“Working with Monica is like spending an evening with friends. We immediately understand each other. She takes each idea I suggest
and turns it into something real and true.” Domenico Dolce.
“When we created Classic Cream Lipstick, we always had the image of timeless Italian beauty in mind. Monica represents it perfectly.” Stefano Gabbana.

Dolce and Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick creamy and velvety,
with outstanding coverage and durability.
Its softness and subtle fragrance of face powder
are inspired by the wax-based lipsticks of the Fifties and Sixties.
Nearly 50% of its ultra-modern formula is composed
of emollients which make it extremely comfortable to
wear and keep the lips moisturised.
The pigments are concentrated,
so the colour is rich, even and long lasting.
“After applying the first coat of lipstick,
blot the lips with a tissue to distribute and set the colour.
Then apply a second coat. It’s an old technique
that women have known for years, and it’s a
way to create a more intense colour and to accentuate the lips,”
suggests Pat McGrath, Creative Consultant, Dolce and Gabbana Make Up.
The New Colours of Classic Cream Lipstick are not only
inspired by the nuances of Sicilian roses but also
by the velvety touch of their petals.
