What comes to mind when you hear the words, “Giorgio Armani Lip Wax“? If you’re preoccupied with excess hair removal like I am, you probably pictured a hairy ‘stache, hot wax and hair removal strips.
Lip Wax is actually Giorgio Armani’s latest compact lipstick. These fab $26 lipsticks have a silky, feather-light formula that glides across lips like silk lingerie on smooth skin.
The semi-matte finish contains a hint of gloss, making it perfect for elegant, ladylike looks. Grab your pocketbook, pull on your white gloves and don your pillbox hat because it’s time to hit the tea party circuit, Ms. Thang.
Giorgio Armani Lip Wax, No. 4
Giorgio Armani Lip Wax, No. 6
Giorgio Armani’s Lip Wax Shades
- Number one (nude beige): a shade lighter than the natural lip color
- Number two, (antique rose) : a discreet lip highlight
- Number three (sienna) : brings warmth to the lips
- Number four (raspberry) : pink purple
- Number five (cardinal red) :a bright, transparent red
- Number six (deep Chianti) : a rich color for strong marked lips
Each of the six shades comes in its own elegant black compact (no brush included). For the lip pics above I applied the colors with a MAC 316 lip brush, but fingers would also work fine for a light lip stain.
If you love MAC Mattenes, I think you’d totally love these. They look a lot alike to me, but I think Lip Wax feels slightly more moisturizing on my lips than Mattenes do. That, and the finish is a little glossier.
All six shades are now available online, and Giorgio Armani says they’ll have them on counters next month.
Picture of the Day
I tried to get Tabs to pose with a Lip Wax compact earlier this afternoon, but he wasn’t in the mood for it. He was far too busy doing important cat things. Oh, well.
Here he is with his favorite toy, a cat-nip stuffed Hawaiian slipper, which is now torn to shreds. He covets it like a baby blanket.
How was your Thursday? I hope it went off without a hitch.
