Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra #190


Fingerprints. This is why I hate gold packaging

It seems like it's been awhile since our last red-red feature, so I pulled out all the stops for today. I've been saving Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra #190 for when I really need drama, because it's just so unabashedly loud. Why do I think so? Is it the blueness? Or that tinge of berry? For some reason, this lipstick screams "I'm red! I'm red!" at you (I don't know if I make sense here. Undoubtedly all red lipsticks are striking, but some are more so than others, you know?). The only equivalent I could think of is Guerlain Rouge G Garconne, which leans warm when compared to Ultra.



L-R: D&G Ultra, Le Métier de Beauté Dualistic Lip Pencil in Rose

By the way, I had my first post-chop trim today. I showed my hair stylist a photo of Faye Wong circa Chungking Express and I promise you, he was beside himself with glee. Even with what little hair left on my head the floor around me looked like a fuzzy carpet. My hair – it is so so so short now, but I love it. Do you see how much makeup I can put on and still look underdone?

Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick in Ultra #190 retails for $30 and is exclusively available at Saks Fifth Avenue.

  1. Ahhh wish we got D&G here, because I'm really looking for a blue-red that will actually look like a blue-red on me! Just ordered Hourglass Icon, and I really hope that'll do the trick!

    Your hair is really really chic. I agree that gives you the liberty to play your makeup up without looking too much. Way go to Xiao!

  4. I love reds like this. And I love your hairstyle! I don't have the guts to do it though. The shortest was a bob, that's it.

  5. ohh, that's of the D&G lipsticks I wanted, good that it is on my wish list already. I heard mixed reviews on those but I still want it, they have some amazing reds and vamps in their collection. / Claire

  7. I love your hair, Wandz. It's so fresh! I want to do SOMETHING with my hair, but am not sure what. Uggggggghhh.

    I would never have thought of a frosty eye with red lips, but you make it look so damn good.

  8. Your hair is amazing! Faye Wong was a really inspired pixie cut inspiration. Also, this is my favorite kind of red-red, so I find myself horribly tempted by this one... My reds and berries collection doesn't exactly need another new recruit, though.

  9. Your pixie hairrr! I love how your new shorter cute really flatters your feminine features. The red lip with your 'do is a perfect pairing.

  17. Dear Xiao,

    As I read your post and noted your photos, I thought to myself, "She's getting more confident with the amount of makeup she applies"- but I only noticed that, I didn't correlate it to your new short hair. I is something, though!! Love it so much and envy you a lot! This shade of lipstick is gorgeous, too. Thank you for the post and Happy Thanksgiving. xoxo Beth in Pgh ;-)

  19. I love Chungking Express and watched it ad nauseum while I was at uni... I have to watch it again! I couldn't get enough of the sights of gritty HK, Takeshi Kaneshiro and Tony Leung.

    Yes, Faye Wong had the ultimate pixie do in that movie. Good choice! ;-)

  20. I love DG lipsticks, unfortunately I cant get more because of course they r not available in France.

    I admire your confidence, I had long to hip hair since I remember and for me big step was to cutting it to waist! :)

  23. Good call about being able to wear more makeup with the short hair! Sneaky...I adore the short cut on you Xiao, you're lucky you can wear it so well! Also enjoying this red lippie...'tis the season and all that, I'm finding I'm getting the serious urge to pick up a few more reds lately!

  24. You are so beautiful, I always enjoy watching your photos. Your coloring is so universal, you can pull so many different groups of shades!

    This lipstick looks amazing on you, can you please kindly provide the ingredients of this lipstick? Am wondering if it contains gluten?

    Thank you.

  26. I definitely feel you on the shiny gold packaging. It makes me want to scream sometimes. And wear gloves while shooting. Ah yes, and the lipstick. It looks beautiful on you, as all reds somehow do! And I'm loving the even shorter hair :) Almost makes me want to chop it all off....almost.
