According to Armani, the Rouge D'Armani Lipstick formula is an, "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." As I said in my previous review of Rouge D'Armani No. 103, this is is simply one of my very favorite lipstick formulas. It is comfortable, hydrating, and with the perfect amount of cushion.
According to Armani, Gloss D'Armani is "more than a mere gloss… Concentrated high-definition color, fusing shine, comfort and lasting hold. Inspired by icons of the cinema, Giorgio Armani re-introduces glamour with Gloss d’Armani. Color-Fil Shine technology, with a translucent base that traps pigments and pearlescent particles for a hydrated, silky smooth feeling without any stickiness. Comfortable, stay-fast color is like a second skin that remains true for eight hours without fading or migrating." As previously stated in my Gloss D'Armani No. 103 review, this formula has the perfect amount of cushion, is non-sticky, had a delectably smooth texture, and is very comfortable to wear.
While I madly love Rouge D'Armani No. 501 and Gloss D'Armani separately- I am over the moon about their perfect pairing! Individually they are each perfect neutral muted mid-tone pinks kissed by mauve. Together they are perfection with the perfect amount of depth and shine. They can easily be sheered out, and will build up a touch. Both are infinitely wearable day or night, and are positively office appropriate.
