Giorgio Armani #402 (Chinese Lacquer) Lip Maestro ($32.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, orange-toned red with a semi-matte finish. Guerlain Genna has a satin finish. Hourglass Raven is matte and a bit brighter. MAC Ruffian Red isn’t as orange. Clarins Red Prodige is sheerer. MAC Strut Your Stuff is slightly shimmery. OCC Stalker is a touch darker.

I love Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro; it’s so comfortable but incredibly long-wearing. The texture is a mix of gel and velvet, and it definitely feels like there are silicones in it (and there are), so it sits well on the lips without settling, and the lip color applies evenly and smoothly. It’s fully opaque in color, and it takes very little product to get there. This shade lasted eight hours on me, and it did leave a light stain behind. Even over an eight hour period, my lips never felt dry and at the end, they felt lightly hydrated still. It has a light, natural sheen initially, but it fades after an hour and settles into a matte finish that’s modern.
