Armani Lip Maestro 400 The Red Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow 5 Gold Blitz

Wearing Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 400 The Red on my lips, and Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow in 5 Gold Blitz on my eyes

Let’s do something a little different today, shall we?

I’ve only ever tried two products from the Giorgio Armani Beauty range, which is definitely not enough to write one of my usual brand spotlight posts. Those two products are so good, though, that I feel like I can’t not somehow tell you about them.

I’m talking about the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 400 The Red and the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow in 5 Gold Blitz. They’ve been around for years now, but if you’ve never tried them before, here’s what you’ve been missing out on.

I think the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestros were the first lipsticks in liquid form I’d ever heard of, but they couldn’t be any more different from the moisture-sucking liquid lipsticks we’re so used to seeing these days.

The Lip Maestros are so creamy, and comfy, and lush…

Applying shade 400 The Red on my lips feels like coating them in the softest velvet drape, if that makes any sense… It really makes me understand what a ‘velvet finish’ truly is. Besides, its amount of sheen and point of red are just right.

Honestly, gurl, I think this lipstick is pure perfection.

Speaking of pure perfection…

Aside from the hefty price tag, there’s nothing less than perfect about the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadow in 5 Gold Blitz. It is the creamiest, most pigmented, easiest to blend eyeshadow I’ve ever tried.

Its gorgeous metallic finish makes your lids look like they’re coated in golden foil – a look they keep for hours, and hours, and hours…

For today’s face I’ve applied 05 Gold Blitz on my mobile lids with my finger and blended it out past the crease with a MAC 217 Blending Brush. Then I’ve applied it along my lower lashlines with a MAC 219 Pencil Brush and diffused the edge with ZOEVA’s 231 Luxe Petit Crease brush.

Other products used for this look include:

This is the makeup I would wear if I were a spy and needed to obtain classified information from the enemy using my womanly wiles… I obviously have no idea of how intelligence agencies work other than what I’ve seen in the movies, LOL!

But yeah, that should at least make you understand how this look makes me feel…

That is, dangerously beautiful.

Or maybe beautifully dangerous… 😉

I have to admit that whenever I wear the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 400 The Red I feel sexier than Scarlett Johansson – I have a fervid imagination, LOL!

Anyways, more realistically, I’d probably wear this makeup to a beach party, paired with a white summery dress and a sunkissed complexion. I think it would be a fresh, modern way to wear such a classic shade of red lipstick.

Hmmmm, thinking about it, this last scenario is not any more realistic than the previous one, actually… I’m not exactly the biggest partygoer these days, nam sayin’?

Oh well, I’ll just wear it to go see the next big spy movie!

Do you have any makeup products that make you feel dangerously beautiful (or beautifully dangerous)? I’m all ears! Can never have too many of those… right? 😉

    I have perfumes that make me feel incredibly beautiful, but makeup no. The reality of the mirror stops that. I love many of the sheer Armani lipsticks, so I need to try this one. That really is a perfect red and looks beautiful on you. The one liquid lipstick I tried never really dried down, stayed wet and made my lips feel like they were encased in goop. I haven’t tried another one since. Perhaps Armani will change my mind about liquid lipsticks.

  4. You totally look like the next Bond girl. Red lips and golden eyes make me feel very dangerous as well, even though I don’t wear Armani.

    I love Armani. I have several blushes, powders, foundations, and shadows from Amani. I’m also a lover of about 50% of their fragrance line, commercial or Privé. Most of my makeup brushes are Armani too.

    Wow that lipstick is hot! Because of Armani’s price tags I’ve also only tried very few products. Wait, only one actually! It’s the Eye Tint, and you should sooo try it. I think you’d love it since you like to use a single color as an all over wash. I have it in a shade called Senso and it’s so multi-dimensional!

  8. Looking sexy indeed! You wear red sooooo well. And I love how it looks together with the eyeshadow, beautiful in a very classy can’t-go-wrong-kinda way.

    I also think you look like a Bond girl here. Usually red lipstick, a la Ruby Woo, makes me feel beautifully dangerous, though I’d love to up the ante & get an Armani anything 😉 And wearing a liquid lipstick that doesn’t FEEL like a liquid lipstick is sooooo appealing ☺️
