Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick #505 Orchid

I love a good lipstick, and I think that I may have just found  new favourite formula. Giorgio Armani's Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick is actually marketed as a CC lipstick - color and care! I love wearing lip sticks, but as you know, they can tend to be a bit drying or uncomfortable to wear without a gloss over top. I have been loving the smooth, creamy formula of Armani's Rouge Ecstasy in shade #505 Orchid* ($34 USD/4g).

"With Rouge Ecstasy, the Giorgio Armani laboratories push the boundaries of the exceptional even further with the first “CC” lipstick. “Color & Care” – new innovative hybrid product that marks the start of a new era in lipstick." - Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani's Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks are packaging is thick red tubes with a magnetic closure. The packaging does feel a bit chunky, and it isn't one that would fit easily into a pocket. I do really love the magnetic closure - it's fun but also very secure. I've been carrying this tube in my purse and it hasn't opened up on me yet.

#505 Orchid is a beautiful light pale pink with fine shimmer. I absolutely love pale pink lipsticks, it's one of my favourite colours to wear. I find that pale pink lips are a great way to compliment a smoky eye. This shade is not very pigmented, which I can appreciate with such a pale colour. This is the only shade that I've tried from the range, so I'm not sure if the pigmentation varies from colour to colour. Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick formula is thick, creamy, and feels very similar to a lip balm. I've been wearing this shade daily for the past week or two, I just can't stop wearing it! This formula keeps my lips moisturized for about 4-5 hours, and the colour wears off evenly. You will need to touch up after eating or drinking. There's a slighty fruity scent to this lipstick, but it's not very strong at all.

How cool is this ad? LOVE!



I've completely fallen in love with this lipstick - it's seriously amazing and definitely worth the splurge. I love the idea of a CC lipstick, it's kind of genius. Have you tried any of Giorgio Armani's Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks? What qualities do you look for in a good lipstick?

      Ya, the pigmentation of this shade isn't amazing, but then again I don't love a bold pale pink lip. Not sure how the pigmentation is of the other shades in the range!
