I don't usually splurge on lipsticks unlike I do on foundations and skincare, so I rarely get to use luxury branded lip products. My sister does and she got me this lippie from Giorgio Armani Beauty! YAYYY!!
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 400 The Red
I love bold red lip colors so the shade The Red is just the color I would pick out myself if I were to buy an expensive lippie.
Here's the product description from the website:
The first lip stain with a comfortable velvety texture and a luminous matte finish. Lips appear instantly plumped and radiant. This lip stain lets lips appear instantly plumped and radiant, while the non-sticky texture offers hours of hydration and comfort. It is infused with concentrated pigments that permeate the gel formula, offering an incredible depth of color that stays true, leaving the lips with a flawlessly matte, glowing look.
I love the simple and serious-looking design. I like that it's so sharp, like it's inviting you to appreciate it's redness while still looking so classy.
Here's a swatch on my hand
and on my lips
The shade is incredible! The pigmentation is intense. It's RED!!! I don't need to dip the applicator again to cover both lips. It's not too matte but if you prefer a matte finish, just blot it once. It can stay the whole day on the lips. The texture really is velvety and it glides smoothly on the lips. I do notice that when I do not blot this, I do get some bleeding, but yeah, you can prevent that by blotting.
This is a regular in my kikay kit because nothing can go wrong with a good red lippie!
