Giorgio Armani Redwood (415) Lip Maestro

Giorgio Armani Redwood (415) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a rich, coppery-red with warmer undertones and barely-there, ultra-fine gold pearl strewn throughout. The consistency was creamy, spreadable, and velvety--not overly "wet" in feel but dispersed well across my...
