Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Uptown Mauve Collection lipsticks were recently released in Australia. It was love at first sight when I first saw these lipsticks in the promo pictures. I was prepared to buy at least four of them. Unfortunately I only came back with 1 lipstick as the rest of the shades looked very different in real life to what they are in the picture.
The one I got is Rouge d’Armani in beige 105. The packaging of the GA lipstick is close to perfection, sleek but chic and elegant, with a magnetic closure. You hear the ‘click’ sound when you close it, quite similar to the Tom Ford’s lipsticks.
Beige 105 in my opinion is semi sheer, but pigmented enough to cover the natural color of your lips. It is a “your lips but better shade”, no shimmers, no glitters. It feels really soft, light and moisturizing on my lips, doesn’t settle into the lines and lasts a long time while still having some sheen to it.

Verdict. I love it! It is a perfect day time on the go lipstick as this shade would complement any makeup look I would normally wear.
