Hey guys! I’m back from my break! I had an amazing trip to Japan and China, but now I’m dead tired. It’s been just naps and World Cup matches for me this weekend. Anyway here’s a review of a really well made lipstick.
Giorgio Armani has a really amazing makeup line. The lipsticks, foundations, Eyes to Kill eyeshadows are all really worth the extra moolah. Today I’m reviewing the Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color in Pink 512.
It’s a medium cool toned pink which is very flattering on light and medium skintones. For me it’s a nice light pink for summer. These are also very very pigmented lipsticks. Colourwise, I think it falls between Colorbar Thrilling Pink and Mac Cosmo. Shiseido Pink Messa is darker and more gray while Bourjois Rose Delicat is a much more warmer pink although a bit similar.
It’s a creamy lipstick but the consistency is very different. It’s as creamy as say Mac Amplified or Cremesheen but not as thick. You only need a thin layer to get a great payoff. It’s very comfortable to wear because it’s so lightweight.
It kind of smooths over the lips, doesn’t highlight any problem areas. In general, it sits nicely and doesn’t budge. It’s not transfer proof though. It also doesn’t bleed or feather.
For me, it lasts as well as any long lasting creamy lipstick. With food and drinks, it doesn’t go away completely and still lingers on. It typically lasts for 8-9 hours. I think the colour and texture is great for daywear.
With a pricey lipstick, you’re partly paying for the packaging as well and this one I really like. It’s an odd sleek shape, similar to the Armani Code bottles. I also like the GA engraving on the lipstick and the cap. You get that twist and snap with the magnetic cap.
These cost $34 (similar to YSL) and you can get it from Nordstrom or StrawberryNet. I generally also keep a look out for the counters at Duty Free.
It’s certainly not something you need to buy. But if you do want to splurge on a high end lipstick, you get everything you pay for with these. What I also like about the range is that it’s huge and you’ll pretty much find any colour you seek.
