Giorgio Armani Acajou (207) & Boudoir (507) Lip Maestros Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Acajou (207) Giorgio Armani Acajou (207) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with the finest pearl strewn throughout (not enough to make it visibly shimmery to me in person). It had a smooth, velvety texture that was spreadable, lightweight but had some substance to it, that covered my lips with opaque coverage in a single layer. The color applied evenly, didn’t sink into my lip lines, and…

NARS Dolce Vita, Falbala, Tanganyka Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

NARS Dolce Vita Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warmer undertones and a glossy, cream finish. While it’s listed as a Sheer finish, it had more semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though a lighter hand on the center of the lips and then blended outward might yield medium coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and despite feeling like it wasn’t that creamy or slippery, it looked rather glossy. I didn’t…

Giorgio Armani Sand (100) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and felt velvety–denser but not heavy or too “wet” on my lips. It had nearly opaque color coverage but didn’t reach full opacity in one layer (most noticeable on my bottom lip), and there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a…

NARS Little Princess, Sexual Healing, Chelsea Girls Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

NARS Little Princess Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a pale, peachy pink with a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, but the color applied unevenly, clumped up on itself, and sank heavily into every lip line I had (and some I didn’t know I had!). The consistency was lightweight, thin without feeling clingy, and comfortable to apply and to wear, but the product just looked so poor on. This shade stayed on for two and a half hours and…

YSL Fiery Red (83) & Nu Fatal (85) Rouge Pur Couture Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Formula Overview $36.00/0.13 oz. – $276.92 Per Ounce The formula is supposed to have “rich color with intense hydration … in just one stroke.” The thing to know about this formula is that it is quite emollient and has a lot of slip; the formula almost applies itself as it glides quickly across the lips, though I sometimes found it too emollient and too slippery. That extra slip meant that some shades weren’t as pigmented as anticipated or that color…

NARS Honolulu Honey Lipstick ($26.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, yellowish undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage in a single pass, which didn’t build up well. I had trouble with the application, as the product sank into my lip lines and emphasized the natural texture of my lips.

The lipstick had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging.

It had good pigmentation in a single pass, which applied evenly and just barely tugged on my lips during application.

It was intensely pigmented with a creamy, moderately emollient texture that glided across my lips with ease–almost felt like melted butter–which did make it easy to over-apply if I wasn’t paying attention. Despite the slip, it didn’t emphasize my lip lines, and I didn’t experience settling into my lip lines over time. It stayed…
