This is another beautiful color for Fall. I saw this pretty red shade in the Armani Fall release and snapped it up like I didn’t give my first Rouge D’Armani lipstick #600 a C rating back in June. My memory tends to fade when I see a color I need. Funny how that works!
It’s a beautiful red. Unfortunately the formula is drying on my lips. I put balm on underneath but I still need a moisture pick me up when using this usually at some point during the day. I tend to slap on some Mac Lip Conditioner mid afternoon. Here’s the thing that made me come back besides the beautiful color. This lipstick stays on much better than most of the lipsticks that I have! It sticks with me longer and looks better throughout the day. Very interesting isn’t it? I mean that’s what I call a trade-off. This is an amazing red, that kind of makes me forgive it’s faults.
See I can’t fault this, it gives me movie star type lips! The packaging is fantastic, they get an A+ for presentation. Hopefully they’ll sneak a little more moisture in the formula for us at some point? Please???
Excuse my slap happy application. Most people put on red lipstick carefully with lip liners and careful application-not me! I put this on for pictures while keeping one ear to the door for the UPS man. He’s bringing my Urban Decay Book of Shadows 4 palette and I’m determined to meet him at the door like a starving girl who’s waiting for cookies!
Rating: C (still a C, but hey i knew what I was getting into!)
Disclosure: I purchased this item myself!
