I loved how this lipstick went on. The applicator made it super easy to get a super straight line around the lips and fill in the fuller part of my lips with one even swipe. This is how it's supposed to work and the Reason they say you don't need a liner with liquid lipstick.
The colors are very pigmented. It goes on very light and creamy but airy and almost mousse feeling while still being a cream. It then dries down to the most comfortable and moisturizing matte You've ever felt. It reminds me more of a "comfort matte" or "satin matte" finish in other brands.
This is a good thing as super matte lipsticks only dehydrate the lips and make them look older while sinking into lines it created. You won't get that here.
The one bad thing is that it never quite seems to dry down which is not what one would expect when it comes to a matte. It makes clean up easy. For example when I wanted to take it off I just wiped it with toilet paper and all signs of it were gone in one swoop.
This also means it fades if you eat or drink and you're always at risk for the lipstick traveling or smearing if you touch it at all.
Despite this, it does last hours and hours. Probably 4 to 5 before needing a touch up.
The packaging is adorable. It's very Armani. Very classy and classic. Expensive and luxe looking and feeling. It's a production in itself taking it out of your purse in public and opening the bottle and applying. This lipsticks got style.
It is expensive but the quality is there. It is a unique formula that you probably don't own and can't find cheaper. It's everything you want in a lipstick and it always looks amazing.
I totally recommend this to every one. Everyone should try it at least once.
Available at Sephora for approx 38. It is pricy but it will last
Pro: glide on smoothly and easy to apply, applicator is good, range of color is pretty, it's comfortable to wear, you could say it last on your lip unless you drink and eat constantly. The formula is very well made that it doesn't crack my lips. You can apply this over and over again without looking streaky.
Cons: it transfers! Price is high but then again you are looking at Armani.
If you like super matte it's not for you because it stays satin (not shiny) and radiant. I have this in the color 500 and 508. Picture on my lips is 500 (beautiful light pink) and swatches is 500 top and 508 bottom. 508 is more sheer but it looks so beautiful on the lips.
I have not tried the bolder red and dark colors but for me, I wear 500 and 508 on a daily basis to work and they look very natural. Try it!
