Gosh I can't stop gushing about this.
The Lip Maestro by GIORGIO ARMANI had me at hello.
As usual I went down to DFS Galleria Scotts Road to try them out. Love this place to bits; really feel so at home shopping here.
One of their cozy corners that you can chill when you get tired of shopping..
that painting is beautifully done.
Anyway, as I always shop in DFS so I did not mind at all.
I love the service there plus the ambience.
Not to mention I adore their Visual Merch!
Once I reached, I told the BA.... "Uhm, the Maestro please ...in 400".
And as expected, she told me it was Out of Stock.YIKES .
She quickly grabbed 2-3 tubes and told me why not try other shades. Here you can see shades 400(left) and 402(right). They looked the same shade of red to me so I told myself "Tsk, this won't be easy".
I did not bother to try the 401 anymore as I am not into orange-based reds.
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Intense Velvet Color
After the 2 tubes were tested, I finally grabbed the GIORGIO ARMANI LIP MAESTRO in #502;
otherwise known as Artdeco ; a dark-fuschia-red lipgloss/lipstick
This shade is uber gorgeous.
It is so tricky when worn;
depending on the lighting of the environment I am currently in,
the color seems to constantly change on my lips.
It has this sly sheen with the luninuous effect;
though once applied it dries into a semi-matte finish.
Really complicated shade,
badass texture as it is so velvety and intense.
Packs a punch!!!
1 Swipe, OPAQUE OPAQUE OPAQUE.
Semi-lightweight and defo comfy on the lips..
I did not feel any drying neither any discomfort when I had this on.
LIP Swatches/Different Types of Lighting:
See how it makes my teeth much much whiter too?
Expect a lot of transfer with this product!
Can consider this my buy of the year haha.
Thanks for looking.
