If you haven’t already noticed, our choice of lipstick formulas has shifted quite dramatically over the past two years. Gone are the days where we’d rock a glossy lip, no thanks to our frequent mask-wearing; for a fool-proof choice, whether it’s date night or the weekend out, we’re turning to matte lipsticks.
Highly-pigmented and long-lasting, these will have you looking glammed up with minimal touch-ups, which is why Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s new formula comes at just the right time. The Only One Matte Lipstick is a new finish to the beauty brand’s existing icon, and arrives in 12 matte shades, accompanied by new packaging that take after the house’s maximalist motifs.
Dolce&Gabbana’s ‘The Only One’ lipstick is known for its luminous finish and customisable cases, and in the same way, ‘The Only One Matte’ lives up to the icon’s highly-pigmented colour. This new lipstick features a creamy velvety-matte finish that glides effortlessly onto the lips.
This creamy texture certainly sets it apart from other mattes, and is achieved by enriching the formula in order to create an effortless application that glides naturally across the lips with the weightlessness of a cream. It’s also infused with Dolce&Gabbana Beauty’s Mediterranean Glow Complex, a blend of fig extract, olive oil and hyaluronic acid that further protects our lips, leaving them luscious and comfortable throughout the day.

We’ve got to talk about the shades as well. There are 12 matte shades to covet here, and these range from silky nudes and warm earthy tones to sultry plums and reds. It-shades include #DGAmore, a timeless red dedicated to pure love; Passionate Dahlia, which is delicate and embodies intimate passion; Millennial Pink, a pop of bright pink; and Sweet Mamma, a universally flattering rosewood pink. These are available across both The Only One Luminous Colour and The Only One Matte lines, while the remaining colours are exclusive to the matte collection.
Dolce&Gabbana is truly giving us the freedom of choice, with new ways to personalise our The Only One Matte Lipstick. For this new launch, four new caps accompany the new lipsticks, which are inspired by iconic fashion motifs.
In sacred hearts, a rose print, polka dots, and an ornate red & gold adornment — go ahead and take your pick, if you’re not yet spoilt for choice.
