It is no secret that Chanel's Rouge Allure lipstick formula is my favourite of all time. However, that was until I had tried Armani's new Rouge Ecstasy range. Giorgio Armani describe the formula as the first CC lipstick. standing for Colour and Care. The Rouge Ecstasy lipsticks offer the comfort of a lip balm with beautiful, velvety soft colours. My infatuation with the Rouge Ecstasy formula only intensified when Nick bought me 'Four Hundred' for Christmas (He braved the Fraser's Beauty Hall and picked it all by himself!).
'Four Hundred' is a beautifully deep, classic red. It is subtly blue toned, making it an extremely flattering shade to wear. The application is beautiful; it simply glides on to the lips and feels just like a lip balm. 'Four Hundred' has a satin finish and despite being quite a rich formulation, is extremely comfortable to wear. The formula is long lasting and pigmented; there's no need for layering with this lipstick. If you feel a little intimidated by the pigmentation of the Lip Maestro version of 'Four Hundred', this would be a perfect alternative as it is a lot easier to wear. I like to think of it as the day time appropriate version!
Armani Rouge Ecstasy, you have truly stolen my heart.
Lots of Love
