The Giorgio Armani Holiday 2014 Orient Express Collection brings us four incredibly sexy red lip products. I have three of the four to share with you today.
The first are the incredibly comfortable and lip nourishing Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks ($38 CAD) in the shades 414 Pure Red and 634 Burgundy. They feature Armani Beauty’s “CC” exclusive care and colour technology. They have a light floral scent. These lipsticks have what I’d consider an average wear time and do transfer so eating and drinking will of course speed up the process. They have the uniquely shaped packaging as the Rouge d’Armani line with the luxurious magnetic closure in a red lacquer finish.
414 Bright Red is a rich, bright, true red. It has full colour coverage with a light feel and lovely sheen.
634 Crimson is a sexy cool burgundy with a slight transparency and glossy sheen.
Next we have the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro ($38 CAD). There are two shades in the collection. 414 Pure Red and 634 Burgundy seen below.
The Lip Maestro formula gives the most amazing, intense, luminous matte effect. They looks so decadent and dense in pigment. They look amazing and have excellent wear time but they do transfer easily so when wearing bold shades such as these you must keep in mind to be careful. The formula feels so comfortable on that you forget you are wearing such a bold shade and can end up making a mess. They are packaged with the same tube and doe foot applicator as the Rouge d’Armani glosses but with a red cap.
634 Burgundy doesn’t look burgundy to me at all. I swear I must have checked my box and packaging three times comparing it to the promo images. The one I have is more of a true red. Mind you a very stunning true red. Just not what I would consider burgundy. I wish I felt more comfortable wearing a bold red lip because damn does this one look SEXY. <3
