Ladies, I am working on the requests from my Happy Friday blog I wrote aaaaaaages ago and am so sorry it’s taken so long; it’s been manic with all the Fashion Weeks everywhere so I’m just catching up now!
I just wanted to do a quick blog as I‘ve been looking for a really good blood red lipstick for ages, but none of the colours have been quite right – either too dark or too red, so, when I was buying my Master Corrector in Apricot from Giorgio Armani cosmetics (amazing for covering dark circles btw), I asked about their lipsticks and found the perfect shade. There are 18 in total, but the Rouge d’Armani shade 403 (RRP £25) was the colour I’d been looking for, so I snapped it up straight away.
I road tested it a couple of days later at a work event which involved a three course meal, lots of wine and went on late into the night, which I personally think is quite a hard test – and I wasn’t disappointed. The colour was so rich, the lipstick really moisturising considering it was so long-lasting and I only had to reapply once! And even then I didn’t really need to, I just wanted to make the colour a bit richer after dinner. It didn’t really leave any mark on the wine glass, there was no smudging at all (including on the teeth) and a vibrant colour all night – amazing! All I would say is that you may want to exfoliate your lips properly before you put this as flaky lips will show up, not a great look.
A little added extra is the cool magnetic lid on the lipstick meaning that it’s safe in your handbag – nothing worse than the lid coming off and staining your bag red!
Secret Beauty Verdict: A-MA-ZING. I was so surprised by this lipstick, lasting through a wine-fuelled 8 hour evening, which included dinner and not having to reapply, what’s not to like?!
