I am back with another lipstick review, again one of my prized possessions. Once in a while every woman has the right to splurge and indulge in the luxurious array of products available in the cosmetic hub, even though our husbands might not agree. I still remember an incident while travelling in a flight, there was a couple sitting right behind me and I could literally hear what they were speaking, not eavesdropping ok. The wife had purchased a lipstick from the duty free and the husband was like shocked hearing the price, he was ranting , for such a small part of your body why did you have to spend such a lot of money and poor wife was explaining about the qualities of a high-end brand, which was of course falling on deaf ears. Any ways lets get back to our lipstick review, I usually don’t buy cosmetics on a weekly or monthly basis, but when I purchase, it is usually in a bulk. After getting hooked on to IMBB and exploring reviews of high-end brands, I really wanted to try some of them. Recently I got the opportunity to splurge in some good brands, so today I am here with another lipstick from the house of Giorgio Armani. It is from their Rouge D’Armani collection. I have already reviewed a shade from the Rouge Ecstasy range and now lets see whether this one has impressed me or not.

My experience with Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lasting Satin Lip Color- Pink 512
Packaging– It comes in a usual black outer covering with silver printings, while the lipstick itself is housed in a luxurious elegant glossy black lacquered casing with a magnetic closure and a silver GA logo embossed in the middle portion. The lipstick also has the GA logo stamped on it. The shape of the casing is a bit unique from other lipsticks, a cylindrical shape, looks oval from top view, widens towards the base and is definitely a treat for your eyes.
Colour– By now you all probably know how much I love pink shades, this too is a medium pink shade with neutral undertones, I find it leaning more towards the warmer side, but also slightly cool in nature. It is a beautiful pink with a touch of mauve which is suitable for most of the skin tones and instantly brightens up your face.
Texture– It has a creamy-matte texture, it glides beautifully without any friction and does not highlight dry patches or settle into lip lines. It gives a smooth buttery feel to your lips and there is no need of a lip balm underneath, it gives ample moisturization and hydration. If u apply a lip balm, the lipstick will not give proper finish and colour pay-off.
Finish– It gives a velvety satin finish, so light- weight that you can layer it on your lips without thinking. There is enough creaminess in the lipstick to give a slight glaze and thus gives a dewy finish. There is no element of shimmer or gloss in this lipstick.
Pigmentation and Coverage– It is a highly pigmented shade and deposits 80% of the colour in a single swipe. It is a buildable colour which provides full opaque coverage to your lips. This one is definitely great for pigmented lips and it can be layered on your lips according to the intensity of your preference. It delivers the exact shade from the tube to your lips. I feel the darker shades in the range will have even more intense pigmentation.
Staying power- It has a very good staying power too, stays around 5 to 6 hours with snacks and drinking in between. It transfers moderately on cups and cutlery, but the pink stain never leaves your lips, it fades in an even manner without getting patchy or dry. Usually when lipstick leave my lips, the inner part will be left vacant and color will be concentrated on my outer lips, thank god that doesn’t happen here because of the stain. There was no feathering or bleeding of colour, it stayed put. At the end of the day I had to use a make-up remover to completely remove it from my lips.
Fragrance– There is absolutely no fragrance to this lipstick, usually there is some sort of benign scent in any lipsticks, but this one totally fragrance-free.
I am head over heels in love with the shade and the texture of the lipstick. In comparison to the Rouge Ecstasy collection, I love Rouge D’Armani more, texture-wise and in pigmentation. This shade can be worn with any outfits or make-up looks, your lips will never stand out, it will stay perfect.
