Giorgio Armani Red Chrome (401) is a moderately warm-toned, medium-dark red with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.2 oz.
Giorgio Armani Red Chrome (401) Ecstasy Lacquer ($38.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with subtle, warmer undertones and a high-shine, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips while also hiding my lip lines (always a nice touch!).
The consistency felt more watery and thin as I applied it, but it "set" to more of a gel-like, thicker texture that had moderate tackiness. It stayed on nicely for over six hours, left a strong, reddish stain behind, and was hydrating while worn.
