A-List (301)

Giorgio Armani A-List (301) Lip Maestro Notorious ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium orange with warm, red undertones and fine, gold pearl. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The consistency was creamy with a velvety-smooth feel that had a noticeable shine for two to three hours before it wore down to more of a velvet matte finish. The formula was comfortable to wear, hydrating, and lasted for seven hours on me.

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. 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.

Dress Code (515)

Giorgio Armani Dress Code (515) Lip Maestro Notorious ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium peony p ink with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It was intensely pigmented with opaque, even color coverage in a single layer. The lipstick felt like a hybrid between lipstick, gloss, and liquid lipstick–it had a velvety feel with some slip but did not feel as slick or as wet as a gloss would. The consistency was comfortable to wear and minimized the appearance of lines and texture on my lips. This shade wore well for six and a half hours and was hydrating over time.

Maharajah (517)

Giorgio Armani Maharajah (517) Lip Maestro Notorious ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark raspberry pink with cool undertones and fuchsia pearl. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable but was never full coverage on me. The lipstick had a velvety feel on the lips that was comfortable to wear and felt very smooth. The glossier finish lasted for two to three hours, while the color lasted closer to six and a half hours with a slight stain that was left behind. It was moisturizing while worn.

You always look terrific in orange lips. I find I find myself myself a bit envious. Orange lips are so awful on me 🙁 I can kinda do an orange with a lot of red in it, but then shrug it’s not really orange.

Simply lush and bright shades for summertime! Maharajah is my personal favorite! A-List is gorgeous, too.
