Rouge d'Armani Sheer Lipsticks ($30) have arrived. I went overboard when I ordered. Even so, at the time, Pink #500, Ecstasy, was not available. Now, it's mine, courtesy of my friends at Armani. I am thrilled.
The new Sheer Lipsticks feature a fabulous creamy texture, feather-light
and translucent, as hydrating as a balm. The brilliant colors are
wearable and chic. Don't be mislead by how the colors look in the tube -
A cutting-edge color formulation process, the Color
Shine Moisture Polymer, a revolutionary ingredient, is able to retain
twice its volume of water and enhance color luminosity while locking in
hydration on the lip surface for over eight hours.
hover between straight orange and pink-orange: Acid Tangerine 300,
Mandarin Orange 301, and Orange Mutation 302. Three incandescent reds,
sheer versions of Rouge d’Armani 400 are available: Red Carpet 400, Ripe
401, and Scarlato 402. Three lively transparent pinks will make you
pink lovers delirious: Ecstasy 500, Vita 501, and Blush 502.
Three purple shades, Bitten 600, Tulipe Noire 601, and Black Lacquer
602, are divine.
I've shown you all my early purchases - nine shades in all, out of 12 (just search here on "Armani" to see the features). Think I bought enough of them? Think I love the new Sheers? Now I have 10 - one, maybe two, for every mood and daily fashion choice.
Sheer Lipstick, which is still available in a few shades, but I expect the original will disappear with sell-through.
The new Rouge d'Armani Sheer Lipsticks have the magnetic snap in the case that was introduced with Rouge d'Armani. It never gets old. Iove the elegant snap when I close my lipstick. The extra touches make such a difference!
You can find the Rouge d'Armani Sheer Lipsticks at Armani Beauty's Web site and at Armani Beauty counters. Saks and Neiman Marcus come to mind because that's where we have counters. All but one of mine were purchased online.
