Giorgio Armani 504 Pink Out Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss Review

Hello everyone,

This review will be on the Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer in the shade “#504 Pink Out.”

Giorgio Armani Pink Out Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss

Product Description:
A high gloss, vivid color, long-wearing lip stain that is non-sticky and non-drying.

What it does:  Introducing Ecstasy Lacquer: It has the shine of a lacquer, the color and comfort of a lipstick, and the hold of a stain. Ecstasy Lacquer comes in pure, intense shades and high-impact pearly, metallic shades. Formulated with Armani’s innovative Liquid Vinyl Technology, it’s infused with the highest concentration of water soluble pigments to allow for pure, vivid color impact for maximum long-wear. It is enriched with glycerin for easy application and long-lasting hydration. Apply one layer for a subtle touch of color, layer over any Armani lipstick as a top coat, or layer it on for a bold, statement lip.

My Experience with Giorgio Armani 504 Pink Out Ecstasy Lacquer Lip Gloss:

Packaging:  This lip product comes in a long glossy black tube with a small transparent part on the end through which you can see the shade of the lip color. It has the signature GA logo on the cap. The cap closes securely. The applicator is a thin and long lip gloss wand which helps apply the lip product with precision along the edges of the lips.

Texture/Consistency:  This lip lacquer applies with a thin consistency on the lips which helps it spread smoothly and evenly without streaking. Within minutes, it settles to a thicker gel-like consistency on the lips. This reminds me very much of the YSL glossy stains which has the same exact quality about them.

Feel on lips:  As this lip lacquer settles to a gel finish, it forms a thick layer and hugs onto your lips. It does not bleed and does not move around. There is a moderate sticky feel when you purse your lips together but that is what helps make these lips gloss long wearing.  It feels pretty comfortable on the lips. It is not drying nor is it too hydrating, but due to the glossy finish, it smooths over fine lines and dry patches without accentuating them. After I remove it at the end of the day, my lips do feel a bit parched and in need of some lip balm therapy.

Pigmentation:  This shade has the most amazing pigmentation for a gloss. It goes on fully opaque in one swipe. The color is bold and bam in your face. You don’t need to layer this color. Layering might actually make this product feel goopy and bunch up.

Shade and Finish:  The shade #504 Pink Out has nothing pink about it (don’t know why it was named as such). It is a super vampy deep purple-violet color with a whole lot of blue micro shimmers. The blue shimmer does give it a unique blue hue and dimension. When you step out in direct light, your lips will sparkle. I feel that this shade, due to its vamp-y nature, is more suited for fall-winter wear, but I mean if you wanna rock this during summer time as well, by all means go ahead.

This color by itself is a statement color but with the addition of the shimmer, it takes it to a whole another level. This would be a perfect accessory for a glam party night as it surely draws all the attention to your lips.  The combination of the high glossy finish and the micro shimmers make your lips look extra juicy and attractive.

Staying Power: The high glossy finish stays on your lips for 4-5 hours, which is very impressive. There is some transfer onto cups and glasses when you drink, it is not kiss proof. The shimmers do become more and more apparent on the lips as the shine wears down. The color however wears on and on over the lips like a stain for 8-9 hours or until I remove it will a makeup wipe. There is no off-putting fragrance. The fragrance is very very mild, almost undetectable when on the lips.

Overall, there are many qualities about this lip product which most people may not like, namely the overwhelming presence of shimmers, the moderately tacky feel on the lips, but if you are someone who can look past these things, it’s an absolutely fantastic product. This is one of the longest-wearing high-shine glosses for the lips that delivers full opaque pigmentation and also works as a lip stain. If you are looking for a “next statement, attention-grabbing” lip color, I highly recommend this lip lacquer to you.
