|503 (Blush) and 505 (Dewy)|
Creamy and smooth, these sheer lipsticks are so emollient that they go on like a rich lip balm. They add a dewy veil of color to your lips, and the colors themselves are subtle but stunning. From the Pink range, I ordered 503 (Blush) and 505 (Dewy).
503 Blush is hardly flashy, but it manages to be a showstopper. The color in the tube is a gorgeous mauve-rosewood, and on the lips it translates into a heavenly mauve-pink. This is the perfect shade for adding just a bit of color and depth to my lips.
As for 505 Dewy, it is just a pure, soft, pretty pink.
Because these are sheers, the difference in colors can be quite subdued. I was able to build up the color by swiping several times. 503 Blush is exquisite and does suit me better than 505 Dewy, but there's something sweet and baby-faced about the latter that I love.
Both sheers lasted easily for hours, and even after eating my lips felt moisturized. Armani Beauty brags of the formula: "The innovative Color-Fil moisture technology contains an outstanding moistcapt agent that is able to retain twice its volume in water and that forms an imperceptible film, rich, non-sticky texture." I believe it now.
This was my first encounter with Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers, and I can say it is among the best lipstick formulations I have ever encountered. 503 Blush and 505 Dewy are two ethereal shades I will treasure.
