Giorgio Armani Venetian Red (208) is a very warm-toned, medium-dark orange with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.22 oz.
Giorgio Armani Venetian Red (208) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a brighter, light-medium copper with strong, warm orange undertones and a luminous sheen with very, very fine micro-pearl strewn throughout a more cream-like finish. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to my lips and spread easily with the doe-foot applicator.
The texture was lightweight, creamy and more velvety, so while it didn't have a matte dry down, there was some adhesion and a lot of flexibility to keep it comfortable to wear. It wore well for seven and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating over time.
