Giorgio Armani Beauty Design for the Lips Holiday 2010 Gift Set

Giorgio Armani Beauty's Holiday 2010 Gift Sets have arrived at Saks, just in time for Friends & Family. Friends & Family started today and runs through Saturday. You'll save 10% in the beauty department. Make sure to ask for the discount if it's not offered at your favorite Saks.

Each holiday season, Armani Beauty offers a Lip Shimmer set, and each year, I buy several. This year, Design for the Lips, an $81 value, is priced at $49.

The Lip Shimmer shades give you a nice range.
  • No. 9 (shimmer pink shown at right above)
  • No. 16 (golden nude shown at left above)
  • No. 21 (mauve shown center above)
I swatched them in the same order, top to bottom, on my arm. My photo was taken in full sun. I applied the glosses with their own applicators - a brush.

The set comes with a pretty patent gun metal grey makeup bag with a discreet Giorgio Armani Cosmetics label. I may actually use this one. It's perfect for holding a cell phone along with some money and a gloss! That's all I need to take along when I walk to a local restaurant at lunchtime.

As always, I'm smitten! When it comes to Lip Shimmers, I think Giorgio Armani Beauty shines. The only question is how many I'll purchase before Friends & Family ends. DC-area gals: you'd better get there before I go back! When you stop by, make sure to tell Loyd Cassler you thought his photo on the blog was dashing.

I'll tell you about the other holiday gift sets tomorrow.

WOW! $49 is such a steal for three Armani glosses! Plus the 10% discount? What's not to love? I own one lip shimmer so far, but I must go back for this set.
Thanks so much for showcasing their beauty.

I love number 9!! That's my favorite kind of color. I think I'll pull out all my Armani glosses to wear in the next few days. I haven't given them much attention at all.

My goodness, Marcia. How could you forget your Lip Shimmers? Don't you carry one in your purse. :)
