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.
Sometimes products are discontinued or limited edition, which means that a product may no longer be available at one or more retailers so you may need to shop around for those hard-to-find shades!
