Giorgio Armani Notorious (408) is a slightly warm-toned, medium-dark orange with a cream finish. It is a limited edition lipstick that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.22 oz.
Giorgio Armani Notorious (408) Lip Maestro Notorious ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque pigmentation that applied well to lips with smooth, even coverage. The texture was velvety, creamy, and flattering on the lips as it masked my lip lines and did not sit in them. The color stayed on well for seven hours and left a slight stain behind, while the formula felt hydrating over time.
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.
