Rouge Ecstasy

Giorgio Armani beauty have been a pioneer in creating unique formulas for the past few years. Love them or hate them, there is no denying that the Maestro foundation and the Lip Maestro gloss are utterly stand-out in texture and concept. Despite my appreciation for their bases, I hadn't been taken in by any of their lipstick range so far. The packaging is undeniably fabulous but the lipsticks, to me, where not as unique as the other products in their line up. Until now.
October 15th saw the release of their brand new 'Rouge Ecstasy' lipsticks...

They are formulated as 'CC' lipsticks, combining colour and care. Giving your lips the moisturising and repairing benefits of a nourishing balm, with the same intense colour pigmentation of a traditional lipstick. This combination is a common aim, but it's pretty rare to actually achieve the perfect balance between the two and I really think Armani have done this with their newest lipstick formulation.

The lipsticks are beautifully soft and smooth, yet the colours are vibrant and long lasting. The swatches below show just how beautifully pigmented and smooth the product is. What's more, the range of colours is the most extensive we've seen from Armani so far. The line-up consists of 36 beautiful shades, so there is literally a shade for everyone. Ranging from the deepest, darkest browns to the palest bubblegum pinks.
The packaging is the same beautiful magnetised design as their original lipsticks, but this time in a glamourous cherry red colour. Very chic and utterly luxurious. As always with Giorgio Armani products... The price does reflect this however. At £25, they are one of the most expensive lipsticks on the market, but if you're looking for a new high-end lipstick, these will certainly not disappoint.
Armani have also created a beautiful beatbox video to promote the release of this line. If you're a beauty addict, it's a bit of a must-watch. They challenged me to create my own little version on Instagram this a couple of weeks ago using seven different shades from the range. Not many people actually guessed what I was saying... Can you?!

  1. They look like such gorgeous shades, definitely going to have to look into them more! The swatch on the far right looks perfect for Autumn, would you mind telling me what shade that one is please?

  3. I actually like the look of the pale nude and pink in this line. I usually stay away from those since I feel they'd wash me out, but those actually look really nice on, I may have to check them out now..and nope, can't guess what you're saying, lolz.

  14. This might be a bit out there but it looks like you're saying bread or breath. :S I love the look of these but sadly on a student budget they are a massive no go! xx

  15. I have a few Giorgio Armani makeup goodies on my wish list at the moment and fingers crossed i will be getting a few of them for birthday treats soon haha :) That beautiful pink shade is so up my street - need it in my life. It almost looks like your saying 'Je t'aime' but i don't think that would be right as Giorgio Armani is Italian not French haha :D or you are saying 'Ecstasy' as in the Rouge Ectasy range? I am probably way off though haha :)

  16. They look really nice. I love lip products that are both moisturising and pigmented. These lipsticks are definitely high on my to-buy list now. Not a fan of the red packaging though.

  57. Oh, I'm really tempted. I have a weak spot for high end lipsticks... Are the colours showed above the colours you used in the video clip?
    They look gorgeous enough.
