Tadzio (103)

Giorgio Armani Tadzio (103) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a darker beige with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. The texture was smooth, more velvety, and comfortable to work with as the color spread evenly across my lips and didn’t settle into my lip lines.

This particular shade seemed slightly thinner and was less glossy compared to most shades in the range. It had opaque color payoff that lasted well for six hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

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.

Fiamma (205)

Giorgio Armani Fiamma (205) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with strong, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. It was intensely pigmented where a little went a long way, but thankfully, the color applied evenly with the included applicator.

The texture felt lightweight, creamy with some velvety slip–more like a silicone-based primer but with some creaminess still. It wore nicely for seven and a half hours, left a reddish stain behind, and was lightly hydrating over time.

Love ’em both! Tadzio though quite light, would probably still work out for me with a browner lip liner, such as Nyx Earthtone.
But Fiamma is literally 🔥! I have a weakness for fiery orange-red or red-orange lip shades. For one thing, they flatter my olive complexion. Secondly, when done well, they look spectacular and are a confidence booster.

These both sound wonderful! The shade Tadzio suits you so much and is such a perfect shade now we’re heading into autumn. The finish sounds like something I’d love, so I’m definitely going to check these out
