I have Armani Beauty Lip Power Lipstick in the shade 504 Flirt which is described as deep mauve pink on the website. I think it is more of a cinnamon brown pink with a little hint of coral. It’s beautiful! This color really brightens my face.
The lipstick is creamy and goes on smoothly. It feels light and comfortable on the lips. Like a velvety veil. It is not drying and does not peel my lips. The rich, pigmented lipstick delivers a decent amount of color with one single swipe. The color is buildable and the intensity can be easily increased by layering multiple swipes. It never feels heavy and easily shows up on my medium pigmented lips. The silky, satin finish is neither too matte nor too shiny. The color will transfer, lighten a bit and lose its intensity after eating and drinking. The good thing is it doesn’t disappear completely or leave that nasty ring. It fades evenly and leaves behind a stain without any shine. Can be easily reapplied because it has a very thin, silky consistency. It lasted 3 hours or so without eating/drinking and then I needed a touch up.
The drop-shaped bullet is good for precise application and the packaging is nice. It does not have that magnetic closure which I wish it had. Not a necessary thing but it makes the product feel weighty and extra luxurious in the hand. Also, it does not have any perfume scent that a lot of lipsticks from premium brands have.
