Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick in 36 Sunset Pink Swatch

June 29, 2011

I certainly have an addition to lipsticks, or more specifically, sheer lipsticks. I just love the fact that they are fuss free – I can apply it without even looking into the mirror, and because they feel emollient and moisturising on the lips I can use them as a replacement for lip balm. If you are into the sheers like me, then Giorgio Armani’s Sheer lipstick range is worth checking out. I have recently got myself the Sheer Lipstick Rouge Transparent in 36 Sunset Pink from its 2011 Summer Heat Collection.


As usual, the packaging of Giorgio Armani is always understatedly chic. Although the tube is made of plastic, it has a frosted finish with some nice weight to it.

Since it’s a sheer lipstick, the bright red from the tube translates into a sheer coat of pink coral color with a translucent finish on my lips. The intensity is easily buildable. I swatched it with 3 swipes to achieve my desired finish.  I like it as much as the Chanel Coco Rouge Shine – they both have a balmy and smooth texture without any shimmer in it while providing a veil of luminosity to the lips with the right amount of color.



Overall thought: What a nice range! It deserves more hype. I will certainly be  looking into it further..:-P Actually I have already regretted that I didn’t buy the Sand Dune Beige #37 which was the shade on Megan Fox’s lips for the Summer Heat Campaign.

That’s a stunning colour, I’m loving the idea of sheer lipsticks seem like they’d be much easier to apply out and about.

Yes, sheer lipstick is so much easier to work with, I use it pretty much as a lip balm 🙂

Thanks 🙂 It is a beautiful shade, not just for summer. I can see myself wearing it all year round.
