Ooh la la...it's love! The new Giorgio Armani Beauty Gloss d'Armani ($28) lip glosses arrived at Saks, and I had my choice of all the shades. I purchased "only" four - on this first round. I'm sure I will select additional shades. I even loved a pastel tangerine one - can you believe it?
What do you do when you are faced with 18 colors you could love? I could have purchased every one of the new Gloss d'Armani shades. Maybe one darker coral shade didn't appeal to me. I haven't had time yet to test, wear, and determine the length of wear. No matter to me. I wanted to show you my initial selections. There will definitely be a Part 2 to this feature and maybe a Part 3.
"My first four," in order left to right in the photo at left, were Beige #100, Pink #501, Plum #600, and Plum #601. You can see that I selected a range of shades, from the lightest to dark shades so that I could evaluate all of their qualities.
Beige #100 is extremely light. It's close to the color of my skin tone. My skin doesn't gleam like the Gloss d'Armani does. It's a gorgeous topper. It's shown at the top of my swatch photo, barely.
Pink #501 was the last of the four shades I selected (for now). It's a pretty, sheer warm pink. There are several cooler pinks from which to select. I'm sure I'll purchase some of those too.
The plums always draw my eye. I chose Plum #600 and Plum #601 first. I love gloss with color. I don't have to wear lipstick underneath it. Plum #600 is rosier then Plum #601 and is shown above it on my arm. I'd be hard pressed to choose between them. I think they are both exquisite.
My swatch photo was taken quickly. I'll get more photos later - probably when I go back for more shades. I didn't have enough time to try each of the available shades at Saks, but given my love for Giorgio Armani Beauty lip glosses, I will.

Gloss d'Armani has not arrived at the Giorgio Armani Beauty Web site yet. It was available at my favorite Saks Fifth Avenue this week. As far as I know, it has not landed at Neiman Marcus, but all of their stores have different delivery dates. Ask your favorite Armani Beauty counter for an arrival date.
