The new Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks claims to be a ‘CC Cream’ for the lips. If CC stands for Color & Correct in foundation/skincare, then it means Color & Care in lipspeak. There are a billion (read: 37) shades to choose from, so there is literally something for everyone. I took a look at the range and found that some of the shades are very similar to each other, with slight variations that go from light to dark depending on your individual skin tone and needs.
There are six color families: Beige, Brown, Red, Coral, Pink, and Plum. I chose one from the Brown, Coral, and Pink familes for my first go.
Diva (Pink 503)
Tangerine (Coral 307)
Ambiguous (Beige 105)
These are essentially highly pigmented lip balms. Diva (I LOVE that they have names instead of exclusively numbers now. So much easier to identiffy) is definitely the most ‘lipstick’ like of these three. They go on smooth and set semi-matte.. and they fade fully matte (which I love. There is no waxy goop in the middle of your mouth when it wears off. It fades evenly).
There are a bunch more that I want to try, but for now these will tide me over. You can find out more about Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick HERE.
