What will you say if one day someone makes a beautiful lipstick shade in your name? For your birthday?

Amazed? Oh, hell yes. Flattered? Absolutely!

That’s actually what happened to the Academy Award-winning, Italian actress Sophia Loren on her birthday last year.



More than just a lipstick, Sophia Loren N°1 is a loving tribute from Dolce&Gabbana to Sophia and all women. The colour makes it truly unique: a bright cherry red created by the Designers with Sophia Loren to enhance the deep pigmentation of her lips. It’s her red, it’s her signature.

The Review:

Sophia Loren’s signature red is supposedly a bright cherry red. Created in celebration of her 81st birthday as a thank you for being an inspiration and an iconic beauty, the limited edition lipstick comes in a golden tube to match the muse’s elegance and it also comes with her signature embossed outside the lipstick tube. It looks like a medium raspberry in the ad if you’ve seen the video. Or a light dusky pink in real life, for me at least.

It’s an everyday, wearable color, that I believe will look good on most complexions and will appeal to all ages. It feels light and very hydrating every time I wear it. The formula has a creamy texture making application breezy with just a one go and it has a sheer, glossy finish to it. Its sheerness was the only thing I was disappointed about. A color this beautiful should have a more satin finish. That will make it last longer than its usual wear time of around 3 to 4 hours.

It did settle a bit on the driest patches on my lips a few times, not everyday mind you, but that can be remedied easily with proper lip preparation. A lipstick this creamy should be bleeding or feathering but surprisingly, it didn’t do any of those. So aside from the sheer pigmentation and some episodes of patchiness, it seems like a well-rounded, wearable lipstick.

So, once again, your very own lipstick shade for a birthday gift? It doesn’t sound that bad at all.
