Lip Service: Armani Blue (Black Pearl Flash Lacquer)


Well… this is interesting. Armani’s new collection of lipglosses includes a ‘blue’ shade… that’s meant to cool down any color that it’s added to. I tried it… fell in love… and snapped it up right away.

I tried it out on an ‘orange based’ color, so see what would happen. I used the new Givenchy Lipstick in Carmine for this experiment.



In addition to adding a ridiculous shine… it also cooled down the orange and made it more of a coral color. In the store, I tried it on Armani 401 (orange red)… and it changed the color to 400 (blue based red).

Pretty amazing stuff. I love it.

    Oooh, that is pretty!

  2. This was the one that I gravitated to as well. It's a lovely veil of shimmery colour, even on its own. Looks great in the combination you have, though. I'll definitely have to play around with it more.

  3. It does add an interesting hue by itself. When I realized that it could 'cool down' color by adding a blue note… I knew it could theoretically be universal. It's pretty cool. I can't wait to see what combinations you come up with!
