A Beautiful Red for Autumn and Winter

Giorgio Armani #408 Rouge d’Armani Lipstick ($30.00 for 0.14 oz.) is darkened, cool-toned red with micro-fine ruby red shimmer finished with a pearly sheen. NARS Amsterdam is warmer. MAC Rocker is very similar but matte. shu uemura has a similar texture but is warmer. Rimmel Metallic Seduction is a bit browner. Make Up For Ever #48 doesn’t have shimmer. MAC Digna is just slightly lighter.

There’s something to be said about trying a product on, and it’s definitely something that I caught onto a couple of years into blogging, but sometimes I’m still surprised. The way this swatched seemed like it was going to be a little sheer, perhaps look like a lip stain when applied, but it’s much more opaque. There is a subtle translucency that’s lingering in the background, but overall, my lip freckle is a mere shadow. The Rouge d’Armani formula is lovely, and with this shade, I did get seven hours of wear (of the eight the brand promises) and there was a light stain left behind. Aside from the length of wear, it’s such a comfortable, hydrating, and evenly-wearing lipstick that applies easily without tugging or dragging on the lips.

Giorgio Armani packages the lipstick quite well; glossy black that disguises fingerprints well with a magnetic closure that stays in place even if you let it rattle around your purse or makeup bag. The lipstick is both scent- and taste-free, for those sensitive to either. Oh — and 0.14 oz. makes it one of the more generously-sized lipsticks on the market.
