Drama Berry (510)

Giorgio Armani Drama Berry (510) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark berry-red with subtle, cool pink undertones and flecks of pink and red pearl and shimmer. It had very nearly opaque color coverage–the shadow of my lip freckle came through slightly–with a smooth, even application and laydown of color. The texture was smooth, lightweight, and velvety with the slip of a silicone primer. It adhered well to lips with a slight clinginess–in the best of ways–and lasted for almost eight hours on me. The formula lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.22 oz. - $172.73 Per Ounce

The consistency has more slip and a velvety-smooth feel that softly “clings” to the lips, so while the finish has a glossier look for the first few hours, the color stays on well. If you’ve ever used a silicone-based primer, there’s a bit of that feel to the formula overall. Most shades last between six and eight hours on me, are non-drying to lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear. The formula is unscented and has no discernible taste.

The Lip Maestro Notorious formula is supposed to have a “luminous matte” finish with “8 hours of wear” and “high pigment.” The Notorious shades are inspired by “chic Hollywood glamour” but otherwise appear very similar in feel to the original Lip Maestro formula.

Shocking Pink (511)

Giorgio Armani Shocking Pink (511) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a bright, cotton candy pink with cool, blue undertones and fine pearl. The texture was smooth and velvety with that silicone-like grip and feel of the formula (a bit like a silicone-based primer but creamier), so it lasted well, but the way this shade applied wasn’t as even as I expected and seemed to pull away around my bottom lip lines a bit. It had semi-opaque coverage that stayed on well for six hours. The formula felt lightly hydrating overall.

Drama Berry is such a beautiful color. I have a million of them but this one looks very smoothing to the lips which is something I am always looking for. It is a definite maybe, LOL.

Drama Berry is a true winner! Such a clear, bright, yet not neon or gaudy shade for spring/summer even all year. Since I may not be able to get my dream eyeshadow palette by PMG for Sephora VIB Rouge sale due to my sulfa allergy, I do think that this plus Viseart Tryst and Absinthe would quell that mournful lemming. *Maybe*

I have sample size versions of two different shades of Lip Maestro (400 and 504) and I adore the silky texture of these lipsticks. Drama Berry is gorgeous and has just made my want list!

Drama berry definitely looks tempting but I don’t know if I will pay CAD 50+ for a colour I won’t wear so often. The Pat McGrath lipsticks are the only ones I’ve paid so much for and I get a lot of use out of the shades I bought (mostly roses and nudes). Having said that, I haven’t tried any lipsticks from Giorgio Armani yet and your A rating is definitely making me think!

Drama Berry is missing the full-face photo. I like to look at those because I have similar facial and hair coloring and that way I can see how it will look on me.

I originally misread Drama Berry as Dromedary (a kind of camel). Apparently my complete inability to spell keeps life a bit random.
