Giorgio Armani Cardinal Red (420) Lip MaestroGiorgio Armani Cardinal Red (420) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and fine, red pearl woven throughout the more cream-like finish. The texture was smooth, more velvety and cream-like but had great glide and adhesion to my lips without feeling slippery during wear.
It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and didn't emphasize my lip texture. This shade stayed on nicely for seven hours and left a faint stain behind, while the formula felt hydrating over time.
