Dolce isn't a whole lot of color, yet it's not "why bother" sheer either. There is enough color to make your lips look pretty.
This is a warm-toned rose, a bit muted (yet not overly brown; doesn't look brown on me), with a slight shimmer and somewhat glossy (not super shiny, but shinier than satin) finish.
It's good as an all-around work, office, meeting type lipstick, when you want to look good, but not made-up, if that makes any sense. The slight shimmer is better than a truly shimmer-less lipstick in these situations, since it makes the lips appear more natural.
I didn't give this the perfect 10 even though I can't fault it for any particular reason. It's just that lipsticks in this genre aren't too uncommon. For instance, MAC Sophisto comes to mind as a next to ideal "office lipstick." It's cooler-toned than Dolce (Sophisto is a rosy berry color) and would likely suit a wider range of coloring than Dolce.
On the other hand, Dr. Hauschka has a next to edible formula. If you're looking toward more natural ingredients in your lipstick (and considering it goes on your lips, it's not a bad idea), you might want to check this out.
Another plus in these lipsticks is they don't have excessive transfer. I love my Clinique "Apple Brandy" Butter Shine lipstick for its color, but it smears on everything. The Hauschka formula stays put pretty well.
