Giorgio Armani Milano (501) Rouge d’Armani Matte Lip Color ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly in a single layer. The consistency was velvety, denser but smooth as I applied it to my lips, yet it managed to feel lightweight while worn. It had good adherence but did not settle into my lip lines, and it stayed on well for seven hours on me. The formula felt lightly hydrating while worn as well, which was a nice bonus!
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Rouge D'Armani delivers a seductive, matte lip color with non-drying, extra-comfortable, and weightless wear. A high concentration of pigments takes matte to new heights, dressing lips in more even, extreme color and maximum coverage. The formula contains 50 percent more pigments that a traditional matte lipstick. With as little as a single stroke it delivers color that lasts for hours. Light-diffusing gel allows for a rich, matte finish that looks smooth and supple, rather than dry. An emollient paste agent, ester oils, and a hydrogenated jojoba oil give application a creamy, glide-on sensation.
