Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro

Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 401, 202 & 700 £25*

Is it a lipgloss? Is it a lipstick? No… it’s a Lip Maestro. Sorry… that was awful. But it’s genuinely how I felt when I tried these. If you remember a while ago I reviewed the Maestro foundation which was definitely interesting but wasn’t perfect for me, well now they have brought out the Lip Maestro and I wanted to let you know how I got on with them. 

They’re described by Giorgio Armani as a luminous matte lip colour, which is more radiant than a matte lipstick and more sophisticated than a gloss. 

It applies like a dream and feels pretty much like a liquid lipstick. The applicator is really long and makes it easy to be precise, which you need to be with such a bright red. I wouldn’t say it is matte though, it looked pretty glossy on me, but not overly glossy. It felt really comfortable on and after testing it all day I can tell you it lasted pretty well. It did need a couple of re-applications though as it did fade, but not badly and it didn’t smudge. I actually quite like the effect it gives when it fades and it looks more like a tint, so when I applied it the second time I dabbed my lips with my finger so it was less glossy. I absolutely love the red colour as it’s quite orange toned and looks gorgeous. I wasn’t however a big fan of the other two as I don’t really wear brown/nudes and although the clear was quite cool (it’s like a matte topcoat) it’s not something I would wear. 

I’d recommend going to an Armani counter if you can and giving the Lip Maestro a try as they are quite expensive but I think some of you will LOVE the texture. They are available on 1st December nationwide! 

What do you think of these?

    I think these are interesting but for the price and GA brand…the packaging looks kinda cheap to me :/ But if the wear is amazing I wouldn’t care about that

    I love the red one, it looks so pretty on you! I’ve never been a fan of lip gloss wands, but these look gorgeous so I could be converted!

    I love the read! The clear color looks interesting as well. I’m in need of a new gloss so I may have to try these out.

    That red looks like it was made for you! I think I would get on more with the brownish color, just because I look a bit strange with red lips. And I can’t believe how pigmented they are! I may just add these to my Christmas list.. xx
