Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani

Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani ($28.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a soft, sheer pink with lots of white shimmer. It adds a hint of additional rosiness to my natural lip color, but it primarily adds lots of white shimmer and sparkle. It looks like any number of sheer lipglosses, so it’s more of a product you pick up if you don’t have too many sheer glosses already and really love the formula.

One of the reasons I like this shade is because it wears for five to six hours, despite being so sheer. The shimmer doesn’t feel gritty, and it doesn’t migrate over time. The formula is moisturizing, long-wearing (though it doesn’t wear the full eight hours Giorgio Armani says it should), and feels comfortable to wear. It does get sticky over time, and it is touted as a non-sticky gloss. It’s not super tacky, but it’s noticeably sticky within the first half hour of wear. I didn’t detect any scent or taste.

The Glossover



It's still one of my favorite glosses, even though it doesn't wear for the full eight hours it's supposed to, because it's still long-wearing (five to six hours), moisturizing, and comfortable on.

    Christine, you look stunning!!! What else are you wearing on the rest of your face?! Love the foundation and highlighter and blush and eyes! 😀

  3. Karina

    It’s pretty, but I agree with you, Christine: “any sheer gloss with white shimmer” (that probably won’t cost you $28) can replace it.

  4. Lori Macartney

    I have this gloss and really like it over lipstick. What foundation and blush are you wearing; it looks great.

    Christine, what do you use and how do you take care of your lips and keep them so moisturized? I use almost everything high end and low end and nothing works.
