Giorgio Armani No. 06 Fluid Sheer
Giorgio Armani No. 06 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 06 Fluid Sheer ($59.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a deep, vibrant coral-red with gold micro-shimmer. In the bottle, it looks like a softer coral, but one pump, and it might be a bit of a surprise. It can be as intense as you want it to be, so when it’s applied as a sheer layer, it takes on a coral stain with faint gold shimmer, but it’s not as opaque or as vibrant. MAC Simmer is pinker, but when applied sheer, it’s hard to tell the difference. Tom Ford Flush is lighter, but again, applied sheer, the differences are minimized. See comparison swatches.

Fluid Sheer is a multi-tasking formula that can be used in a multitude of ways–really however you feel like–from mixed with foundation, on top, underneath, on lips, and so forth. This particular shade in the Fluid Sheer line is most obviously going to work as a blush on all complexions, but it can also be used as a lip stain and doesn’t feel uncomfortable used that way. It works well layered under foundation as well as patted on over foundation (I used Giorgio Armani’s Maestro, which is a liquid foundation, for both tests). For a shade that is as pigmented as this one, if you fear over-doing it, you can easily take any leftover foundation on your brush and lightly blend along the edges and on top to soften the look without impacting the texture. The shimmer is very fine, so it doesn’t emphasize pores or cause patchiness later on. This shade wore twelve hours on me, and it was still mostly visible–it acted a lot like a cheek stain.

I highly recommend using a very, very little bit in order to avoid over-applying the product, because a little goes a long way, and this is so intensely pigmented!  On the skin, it stays damp and movable long enough for you to blend and soften the color on the skin, and then it stays in place after that, but application is definitely not quite as foolproof as other shades of the Fluid Sheer family.

P.S — Giorgio Armani Beauty is also having their Friends & Family sale now through the 30th, so that’s 20% off + free shipping when you spend $75.

    I feel like this kind of product would be perfect for somebody that only wears a single type/shade of blush, ever. I fear that my ADD would leave this pretty and expensive product collecting dust!!

    • Yeah, it IS a massive quantity of something SO SO pigmented. I can’t even fathom finishing a bottle as a single user!

      You know I pretty much wear the same shade of blush every day and I am in love with this, you may be right lol.

  2. I think this is another must-have! I love the glow it gives your skin, Christine. :)

  3. I just got it in the mail yesterday, along with No.04. I am wearing it today on my cheeks and lips, and I love it!!!! I find that the No. 04 and 06 are quite different (in color obviously) and in finish as well. The luminosity is quite different No.04 has multi-dimensional iridescence, while this one is “simpler”. I find that both look magnificent.

    Oooh, what lipstick are you wearing in that last picture? That coral shade looks amazing with your skin tone!

    Definitely next on my list!

    Oooh, I was deciding between this and #10 for the FF sale, but I have a natural flush so I passed. The color and payoff looks fantastic on you, so I’m excited about playing around with the one I ordered

  7. I wish these came in smaller sizes. It’s not the price that has me turned off, it’s just that I feel guilty knowing I’d only use 1/30th of the bottle in my lifetime with how pale I am and also being a blush fiend.

  8. Oh yeah, I definitely like this one better than the yellow one. That one just looked too scary :-) And I am usually not a beauty wuss! I might buy this one tough.

  9. Love this one! They make your skin look so glowy!

  10. Whoa, it looks a bit scary in the initial swatch but blends out beautifully!

    Thanks for the review Christine. :)
    Do you have #9? I have 8 and 9, and I am wondering how 9 compares with 6? Thanks! :)

  12. VickyM

    Love this, of it was available to me, I would buy it.

  13. Sarah

    This is a beautiful colour, but unfortunately too red for me. I’m definitely tempted by the beige/highlighter shades though – and with the size of the bottles I wouldn’t feel guilty using some on my body too!

    *grumble* seems like its out of stock on the website! It has a “notify me” button instead of a “add to bag” button. SIGH. Maybe I will go for the Sheer Bronzer #1 instead ;_;

  15. If I had the money to spend of this I would. It’s very pretty! Love it!

    I love this!

    I love this on you. So glowy! I have very similar colouring to you, so I’d probably use this a lot in the warmer months!

  18. That is absolutely gorgeous on the skin! Hope I can manage to find one in my area!
