Giorgio Armani #402 Gloss d’Armani

Giorgio Armani #402 Gloss d’Armani ($28.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is an orange-red with lots of gold shimmer. When worn, it’s semi-opaque–there is a translucency that allows the natural lip color to peek through, but the gloss imparts a fair amount of color. For those with more pigmented lips, it will likely brighten and enhance but provide seemingly sheerer coverage. It’s not quite as red as Chantecaille Glaze. It is rather similar to Hourglass Primal. Chanel Imaginaire is similar but doesn’t have the gold shimmer.

Gloss d’Armani is supposed to last for eight hours (without fading), be moisturizing, and have a smooth, non-sticky texture. Color payoff is indeterminant, because on one hand, Giorgio Armani says “concentrated, high definition color” but then later describes some shades as “sheer chiffon.” For a more in-depth review of Gloss d’Armani, please read my original review here.

Even though I can’t say I’ve experienced the full eight-hour wear Giorgio Armani claims, I do get an impressive five to six hours of wear with every shade I’ve reviewed so far (I think we’re up to three–two more pigmented shades, one sheer shade). #502 wears a solid six hours, but if you desire a really glossy shine, you’ll need to refresh the shine after three hours or so.

The gloss starts off as almost gel-like and non-sticky, but over time, it gets tackier and tackier. It’s not thick and sticky, but I wouldn’t describe it as non-sticky. The initial non-sticky phase allows for the gloss to be evenly distributed across the lips without becoming splotchy, though. I didn’t detect any fragrance or scent.
