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?

Giogrio Armani Face Fabric ($45.00) is the latest from GA when it comes to foundations. It is my first time trying any Giorgio product, let alone one of their foundations (which are pretty highly touted!). Face Fabric is described as “second skin nude makeup.” It’s actually an accurate description of how the foundation feels. The easiest way to describe the texture and feel of this foundation is to call it a tinted primer. It has much of the same texture as a silicone-based primer does (like Smashbox Photofinish), but this is clearly tinted to act like a foundation.

Giorgio Armani Beauty, an expert in foundation, introduces Luminous Silk Powder ($44.00). Formulated with the same technology and unique properties as our best-selling foundation – Luminous Silk Foundation. The ultra-light patented formula contains a unique combination of micro-fine mattifying powders and sheer, luminous particles for a natural finish that lasts all day. The micro-soft texture veils the skin in silky smooth comfort, while providing light to full buildable coverage without masking the skin’s natural glow. Apply alone or over Luminous Silk Foundation. Use the Giorgio Armani Face Brush for sheer coverage or with a sponge for higher coverage.
Available at select Saks, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Barneys and giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com in January 2008.
