Rouge D'Armani Lipstick in Beige 103 is simply gorgeous and is without question the perfect pink beige nude. Rouge D'Armani #103 was very easy to pick after reading Perilously Pale's extraordinary review of this beauty, and then judiciously studying Karla Sugar's remarkable swatches of all of the Rouge D'Armani Lipsticks. It perfectly exemplifies what I consider to be the perfect pinky nude beige because you can easily persuade it to lean more pink or more peach depending on how you layer it. Quite often I opt to bring out the inner pink in this beauty by lining my lips with Rouge Bunny Rouge Vasco Lip Liner (reviewed here) and by topping Beige 103 off with Chantecaille Brilliant Gloss in Love (reviewed here). However, today I wanted to transform Beige 103 into more of a peachy pink beige-- therefore Chanel's Sweet Beige Glossimer was the perfect choice.
According to Armani: "Exceptional long-wear formula results in up to 8 hours of intense color. Experience comfort and shine, without fading and feathering. Soft texture leaves lips feeling continuously hydrated. Lipstick packaged in an elegant black lacquered case with an exclusive magnetic closure. Sealed with a click. Redbook's "MVP" 2010 Award Winner"
Chanel Glossimer in Sweet Beige LE (a lovely peachy pinky nude). Fret not, Sweet Beige is still available at Nordstrom and on the Chanel Website. However, Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Insouciance (51) is a gorgeous peachy nude that is a good dupe for Sweet Beige, if you prefer that formula. I have Insouciance as well, and think it is really an outstanding gloss.
This is just pure pinky peach nude goodness, and I am absolutely in love with this combination.
Rouge D'Armani Lipsticks are $30.00 each & Chanel Glossimers are $29.50 each. I purchased both at Nordstrom.
