This warmer weather has gotten me craving bright colours, and I've been experimenting a lot with brighter lip colours. I don't generally tend to reach for orange lip products (coral yes, orange not so much), but I've been trying out Giorgio Armani's Lip Maestro in the shade 300 Flesh* ($33/6.5 ml). I've been surprised by how much I love this shade!
The first lip stain with a comfortable velvet texture and a radiant finish. Intense, seductive, illuminating color. Giorgio Armani introduces Lip Maestro: the next generation of lip color. Lips appear instantly plumped and radiant. The sensual, non-sticky texture offers hours of hydration and comfort.
Concentrated pigments permeate the gel formula, offering an incredible depth of color. No underlying white “base” means color stays true for a flawless, matte and glowing finish." - Giorgio Armani
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestros come packaged in sleek clear tubes with a rid lid. The elongated doe foot applicator works really well, and you can use the tip of the applicator to outline your lips. This formula is extremely creamy, and actually feels quite similar to MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Rouge. However, I find MUFE's formula very drying (without the clear top out), and Armani's formula is quite hydrating and creamy. The shade 300 Flesh is extremely pigmented, bright, and free of any shimmer. This bright orange will definitely get you noticed, but it's also still quite wearable. Paired with a coral cheek and neutral eyes, this shade is the perfect final touch.
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro stays creamy for about 4 hours, and the colour itself sticks around for about 6 hours - I'm impressed! This creamy formula will transfer a bit when eating or drinking. I haven't had any issues with this colour bleeding outside of my lip line. This formula doesn't settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches, so I think that it should work for most people.
I'm super impressed with this formula from Giorgio Armani! There are some great shades in this line, and I have my eyes on 504 Ecstasy & 502 Artdeco. Have you tried out this formula before? Are you also loving bright lippies this Spring? :)
