Giorgio Armani #700 Flash Lip Lacquer ($29.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a nearly colorless gloss with multi-colored micro-shimmer. It almost looked holographic, and it was a pain in the butt to attempt to capture any of its prettiness on camera. It’s very sparkly, glossy, and it shimmers with pink and blue and violet bits. There are plenty of shimmering, nearly clear glosses on the market, so for most, you’d really have to be a big fan of either clear gloss (generally) or of the Flash Lip Lacquer formula.

The consistency is not too thick or too thin, and it feels almost like a hybrid gel and gloss–there’s a cushion-like texture there. It’s very lightly tacky, and it feels almost like a second-skin yet is not clingy or drying. I mean second-skin in the best way, because it is comfortable to wear and sits well on the lips, plus it’s lightly hydrating. Even though this is quite colorless, which is as the shade was intended, I still saw a high gloss finish and plenty of shimmer after three and a half hours, which is impressive for something so sheer.

Hi Christine!
I know you’re a fan of Bobbi brown high shimmer glosses. They have one similar to this called Star. Have you tried that one? If so, which do you prefer? I’m trying to decide between the two. I’d like them for layering.

Love Armani products, but clear gloss is one of those things I just can’t get myself to buy high end. It’s pretty nonetheless. This product reminds me a lot of Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Crystal Water – same particular shimmer and everything! 🙂

Kinda agree with Kiss & Make-Up that it’s expensive for such a sheer product. But after reading your thoughts that it stayed throughout the 3 and half hours, and even after the gloss still is shiny and sparkles are still seen, it seems to me that it’s worth it for a lip gloss that could lasts that long. I guess it all depends?

I’m not a fan of glosses but I have been tempted to try Giorgio Armani ones because the quality just seems so much better than other brands I tried. Its quite a pretty every day gloss.
