Giorgio Armani Luce (101) Ecstasy LacquerGiorgio Armani Luce (101) Ecstasy Lacquer ($38.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and golden pearl. It is a new shade for spring, and it was described as having "its pigment levels ... reduced" with the addition of "mother-of-pearl." It had semi-sheer coverage with a healthy helping of shimmer and a ridiculous amount of shine. The texture was lightweight, almost watery initially, and was easy to spread across my lips. It developed into a more gel-like, plusher consistency within a few minutes of wear (which was when I took photos). It wore well for six and a half hours, was lightly hydrating, and was comfortable to wear. The longwear was what set this type of gloss apart from others like it.
Between the high-shine, even shimmer distribution, and long, comfortable wear time, I've set it aside as a personal go-to for one-and-done shades as it'll go with just about any look.
