Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers, Skin Lacquers in Pink 503 and 505

The star player in the Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers, Skin Lacquers Collection is the formula itself.

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.
