Would You Wear Green Lipstick?

Dolce & Gabbana's holiday 2013 makeup collection from the Italian brand Dolce & Gabbana is inspired from the bright colors of precious stones of Sicily. Aptly titled “Sicilian Jewels”, the collection comprises of four lipsticks and coordinating nail colors. The fun part? They come in some really interesting and daring colors. There’s Emerald (to which the name of this post is dedicated), Topazio (a shimmery golden yellow), Ametista (a rich shiny purple) and Rubino (a deep red, the most normal color of the lot).

'I love jewels; they are a symbol of power and passion,' said Stefano Gabbana. 'I love how they reflect the light: that’s why they have always been part of our collections since the very beginning. We adorn with gems our accessories, our corsetry, everything, like in our latest winter collection, which is the ultimate expression of what jewelry means for us.'

As Dolce’s makeup creative advisor Pat McGrath explains, the colors “can be worn in a young, ironic interpretation or with a more grown-up, sophisticated vibe. Just like a piece of jewelry.” That's not all, they also have coordinated nail polishes in this collection. “Matching your lipstick to your nail lacquer is a hot makeup trend. We chose four new shades that showcase the theatrical and playful side of looking good: they are so shiny and special that they'll be a perfect complement to any holiday or New Year outfit." says Pat.

As you would expect from a label like Dolce & Gabbana, the colors are rich and luxe just like the gems that they represent. Each of the lipsticks comes in a gold tube with a gem that matches the color of the lipstick and are priced at $35 each. I got a YSL lipstick earlier this year ( in my next post ) and would love to get the Emerald one from this collection. Unfortunately for me, it is only available in Saks Fifth Avenue in the US and Harrods in the UK.

So, how do you wear Green lipstick?

1. Mix Green Lipstick With Red
"For me, I would basically put it on the center of a red mouth to make it more brown," says McGrath. "Mix it with a red, and then you do the whole ombre thing so it makes the mouth a little darker." It's really sophisticated, she adds.

2. Wear Green Lipstick on Your Eyes
Yes, these luxury lipsticks can double up as gorgeous cream eye shadows with a gem-like gleam and you can even use the yellow topaz shade as a highlighter. Everyone's a winner!

As you can see a dark shade on model Amber Rose and a lighter one on the model to the right, it really looks good if you can carry if off. Its kinda punk rocker and definitely very bold and fashion-forward. When it comes to celebrities, I can totally imagine Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicky Minaj and heck, even Miley Cyrus wearing green lipstick ( Rihanna's already worn it in the past )

Of course, I'd love to wear it and am sure a lot of bloggers would try this beauty look too. So answer my question - Would you wear green lipstick?


  1. Hello from Spain: original colors of lipsticks. Keep in touch

  2. Wow awesome lipsticks love them all.

  3. Maybe for a FOTD look I would lol, xoxo.

  4. Hi June,

    Green lipstick - probably fun for a fancy dress party, but don't think I would wear it out.
    Fun though.
    Happy week

  5. I probably won't wear something like this, but I must admit that Amber looked great in that darker one. That shade seems more doable:D

  6. Wow... original shades!!!!
    Kisses darling!

  7. DG has amazing makeup products but I don't know if I would buy green or purple lipsticks. Maybe I'm just too boring, hehe :)

  8. I quite like strong unusual colour lipstick, but only for special occasions, such as New Year's party or similar. Who knows maybe one day we will all be wearing green lipsticks for work? :)


  9. You know June, I'm really curious to try it, the shade (like the topazio and the Ametista ones) inspires me and I really tempted to create a make up look with a green lipstick. First I need to got one! The D&G collection is to die for!:) Kisses dear! xo

  10. it looks really cool but i think you need to have a really edgy look to pull of a full green color on the lips <3


  11. Our CEO is wearing it with purple eyebrows to Paris HC. Oh my...

  12. Oh, the green lipstick really looks great with blue eyes. I really fail to pull of red lipstick - never mind green!

  13. i love d&g lipstick, but will pass on this trend.

    Amber Rose pulls off the green quite well.

  17. Wow, these are first pics with green lipstick I´ve ever seen, but I like them. It´s something extraordinary. :)

  18. Wow, a green lipstick! I dont think I could wear it at all :p But is is such an interesting concept with the jewels, I would probably wear it as an eyeshadow instead ;)

  19. I think it's fun but I wouldn't now when to wear it..

  20. As I usually prefer red or pink lipstick I think I won´t wear green or blue lipstick. But who know, I´m always surprised by myself ...

  21. Ive never even thought about wearing green lipstick before, I think its okay on the runway, don't know how it would turn out in reality.

  22. What fun colors! I want to try them all :)

  23. I love green, so why not. I would wear it. :)

    Keep in touch,

  24. I don't think I could ever pull off green lipstick - I have to admit that Amber Rose does a pretty good job of it, though. I'd probably mainly use these lipsticks as eyeshadow and even then... I don't know!

  25. You are so kind to visit, hope your week in going wonderfully.

  26. I like it, but I think I'm so classic... red lipstick forever! kiss kiss

  27. You'd have to be brave to carry get away with these colours!

  28. I love jewel tones. This is pretty bold fashion. I'd love to try the red and I'd even give the purple shade a try, that'd be really fun.

  29. Ha, great post! I think my green lipstick wearing days are long gone, but I can definitely appreciate it on others!

  34. I would never wear a green lipstick.

    Svetlana from Lavender Star

  35. great colors!

  36. oh to be honest, I don't think I would ever wear a green lipstick. it's a different thing to wear it for a fashion show or a photoshoot than to university or a party ;p



  37. oo gosh, I'm not sure green lipstick would suit me at all!
    I don't like it really

  38. As good as it looks on Amber or on that model, I am sure I couldn't pull off green lip stick! I am pretty sure it would look ridicoulus on me! :D

  39. Green is one of my favorite colors and I wear green nail polish sometimes but do not think I can pull off green lipstick...:)

  40. I personally wouldn't wear green lipsticks unless it is for Halloween or some special events. I don't think I can pull off green lipstick on normal days without having people to stare. But they would be really something to talk about for glamour events or Halloween.

    Some virus are so bad that antibiotics wouldn't work. I hope you have recovered by the time I typing this. Take care!

  41. Wow! What can I say? ... intimidates me!
    Great post! I congratulate the ability and talent to curiosity to me!
