Giorgio Armani Beauty caught my attention when they launched a new line of lip sheers. These new hydrating lip colors are creamy, lightweight and translucent. The bold color is stunning, but never drying and as hydrating as a balm. The color formulation process features a color shine moisture polymer, which is a revolutionary component able to retain twice its volume of water and enhance color luminosity while locking in hydration on the lip surface for over 8 hours. It comes in three shades of orange, three shades of red, three shades of pink and three shades of purple.
I tested three shades: pink 500, coral 300 & plum 600. The first shade pink 500 ecstasy (seen below) was a gorgeous color. The pink was the perfect not-to-bold pink shade. I was surprised how much I loved this shade when applied. The finish was soft and moisturizing, but wore for a few hours. I'm interested in trying the other two shades in the pink family especially 502.
Plum 600 Bitten follows the trend of purple lipstick. I was nervous about this color since it looked dark in the tube and unlike a color I would normally wear. I was pleasantly surprised. The shade was stunning. It wore on lips like a mauve pink. This shade would definitely work on multiple skin tones.
Thoughts: A great buy for anyone looking for bold color with a balm-like texture. The shade range will work on multiple complexions and long-wear won't be an issue.
