Armani Lip Wax Better than Balm, Less than Lipstick

Giorgio Armani Lip Wax Review

Giorgio Armani’s Lip Wax in Cardinal Red (#5) ($26.00) is described as a “bright, transparent red” in color. Lip Wax is a new product designed as a compact lipstick that’s a “blush of color” once applied to lips. It has GA’s Micro-fil technology in it to give you smoothness and act like a second-skin.  I definitely consider this product to be more like a lip stain than a lipstick, just because it feels so lightweight and gives you just a touch of color once applied to the lips.  It comes in a nifty compact case, gleaming and all, but you’ll need to make sure you have a retractable lip brush at the ready in your purse if you want to tote it around.  I think it’d be cool if they could somehow give you a super short handled lip brush inside the compact, just for on-the-go.  I also wonder if this could be used as a blush stain… hm.  Have any of you tried Giorgio Armani’s new Lip Waxes?
