Attention girls, there’s a new liquid lipstick to lust after – tried and tested I promise! While I’m generally experimental with the colors, I’m rather picky with the texture of my lippies. I like them moisturizing and avoid those that are sticky even if they’re supposedly long lasting. After spending more time than I should have applying and removing different colors repeatedly at Sephora, I came home with 3 different shades of Giorgio Armani’s Lip Maestro.
This cosmetic creation is Armani’s first ever matte lip formula with intense velvet finish. I, for one, hardly ever buy matte lipsticks (eventhough I prefer them to creamy or satin finish) because they’re so damn dehydrating. But I swear to god the Maestro’s non-sticky and moisture-packed texture applies beautifully on the lips. Despite it’s matte-ness, my lips felt light and velvety all the way unlike any others I’ve applied before. I didn’t think anything can beat Shu Uemura’s Lip Rouge, but this one just might. There are 12 luxurious shades available ranging from subtle nude to seductive fushia. Be prepared to have a hard time choosing your favorite.
In terms of durability, I have to say that it’s one of the most long-lasting lippies I’ve used without having to first dab on some foundation. Honestly, nothing lasts on me – even those that claim to be all-day wear. My lipstick color often fades prematurely – before I get to a party even. And after a sip of my drink or a few bites of food, I’ve to make a trip to the ladies. But check out the photo below to see what was left after my cup of coffee. Definitely worth the steep 175Dhs (~48 USD) I spent on each of these velvety delights.
