Giorgio Armani Silk High Color Cream Lipstick – Shade 5 Review

Giorgio Armani Silk High Color Cream Lipstick – Shade 5 Review

Hi Everyone,

Today, I am sharing my first lipstick from the brand Giorgio Armani.  I usually have my budget limit with MAC and haven’t shopped any expensive luxury lipsticks, but this was a surprise gift. My brother gifted me this lipstick and I must say, I love it. Read on to know more.



Around $32.



The lipstick comes packed in a glossy black carton box with all the product details like ingredients, shade number etc., printed on it. The lipstick cover is a heavy black glossy case. The case is very unique in design. The design is a convex type of shape on top, both the top and bottom part of the lipstick is asymmetrically aligned together. The center part of the lipstick has the brand name printed in black. The case is a bit heavy. This silk cream range of lipsticks does not come with the brand logo printed on the lipstick itself, which I really missed as it looks so classy. The Giorgio Armani logo is printed on the top of the lipstick.



The colour is a beautiful bright pink with a tiny hint of coral in it. It is a very bright pink shade and I love to wear this in the day time for winters. It looks very pretty with MAC Fleur Power Blush.  This color is very bright, but doesn’t look neon against my dusky Indian skin tone. It instantly brightens my face. The color will look pretty on fair, medium and dusky skin tones. It might look milky or wash out deeper skin tones.


Texture and Pigmentation:

The pigmentation of the lipstick is good. As I have a lot of lip pigmentation, I require at least 3 or 4 swipes of the lipstick for an opaque look. The color comes out very rich and more of a light cream in one swipe. I like to wear this lipstick sheer too as it gives a natural look to the lips easily. The lipstick bullet has a flat top with one side slanted in an angle for application. It applies well with a lip brush and you can also directly apply the tube. The finish of the lipstick is very much satiny, it has a tiny bit of sheen or glossy effect after applied. The formula of the lipstick feels like butter on lips, really comfortable and weightless. It doesn’t set into fine lines. I felt my lips moisturized and not drying even without a lip balm underneath the lipstick.


Staying Power:

The lipstick stayed on me for good 6 to 7 hours of wear time and later leaves a light diffused pink tint on lips.

Cons of Giorgio Armani Silk High Color Cream Lipstick – Shade 5:
