Armani Rouge d’Armani Sheer

Armani, Rouge d'Armani Shine displayArmani just added a new lipstick to its lineup: Rouge d’Armani Sheer. (Spring/summer IS the season of sheer lipsticks.) I tried on Pink 501 and found it, pleasantly, not TOO sheer. The formula goes on with a comfortable heavy-balm feeling. It has a natural, semi-gloss finish, which gives an almost stained quality to your lips. The sensation of having product on your lips lasts 1-2 hours, but the pigment stays behind after the lipstick feeling is gone.

I want to describe all the shades in terms of fruit. Coral 300 is orange-tangerine. Coral 301 is a strawberry, warm, sheer, faded red. Coral 302 is a more saturated, more red strawberry-red.

Red 400 is a bit more red, but still falls into my definition of “strawberry.” Red 401 is a bit pinker and slightly cooler. Red 402 is a persimmon dirty warm red-orange.

Pink 500 is bright cool pink with tiny blue sparkles. Pink 501 is comparatively warmer (though I still thought it looked cool on me), a bright watermelon pink. Pink 502 is a light grapefruit pink.

Plum 600 is a rose berry. Plum 601 is red-violet. Plum 602 is grape.
