To the Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Notorious liquid lipsticks, thanks for reminding me that I still need to get myself a Notorious RBG t-shirt.
These cuties are new for spring 2017 and — gasp! — they’re $38 each, which is pretty expensive, but I sure do think they’re lovely.
The Notorious Collection is an LE line of six Armani Lip Maestro liquid lipsticks inspired by Hollywood glamour. (Side note: For some reason, Armani refers to their Lip Maestros as glosses, which is a little confusing to me because they have a glossy finish, and I don’t think they feel like a gloss either.)
I’d characterize them as lightweight semi-matte liquid lipsticks with a whipped, wickedly moisturizing formula (totally unlike most liquid lipsticks, which are incredibly drying).
When I swipe one on my lips, I get an opaque lip look with a semi-matte finish that isn’t completely flat. I see light bouncing off my lips, which kinda makes them look plumper and muy delicioso. 🙂
They remain like that for 3-4 hours, assuming I’m only sipping on a beverage or carefully eating Fuji apple slices. If, on the other hand, I eat a full meal, the semi-matte aspect wears away, leaving behind a lovely lip stain throughout the entire lip area (as opposed to just around the edges).
