Armani Ecstasy Shine Lip Cream Review

NEW Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipcream

New Armani Lipsticks

Armani Beauty Ecstasy Shine

This brand new Ecstasy Shine launch from Armani Beauty combines the high shine finish of a gloss and the hydration of a balm into one handy lip cream. It is fantastic for giving  a pretty wash of colour whilst also protecting and nourishing your lips. This is a great all rounder.

As with all Armani Beauty products the packaging of this new lip range is utterly luxurious. All 18 shades come in the signature ergonomic bullet case, lacquered in the immediately identifiable red 400 of Giorgio Armani Beauty, with the iconic magnetic clasp. They feel weighty and luxe and the magnetic closure means the lid will never come off in your handbag!

I have been testing 6 out of the 18 colours and as you would expect the lighter shades are more sheer but the deeper plums and reds offer a more bold finish but these are meant to be easy to wear and light on the lips. They have more of a fresh feel, modern feel especially after a year of the ever popular Matte lip. I personally love the balm like texture of these, they glide on the lips with ease and because the colour isn’t too vibrant they’re fuss free to apply. No lip liner needed and if you’re in a rush a mirror isn’t even a must! As Armani say Minimal input, maximum impact.

These have a modern glossy finish to them, not your throw back gloss of the 90’s but a more radiant, non sticky, light reflectant finish. They feel lovely and smooth on the lips and despite them being a gloss / balm hybrid the staying power was impressive. I have to say at £29 each they are very much a luxury beauty product but If there is a shade you fall in love with (& with 18 wearable shades to pick from that won’t be too hard) I guarantee you will want to use it all the time. My lips feel and look so good when I am wearing these and also once the colour has faded my lips still feel soft and hydrated.

New Giorgio Armani Beauty Lip Magnets

Beautiful Lip Magnet from Armani Beauty

New Armani Beauty Lip Magnets

These are the new Lip Magnets* from Giorgio Armani Beauty and boy are they pigmented! I have four out of the 18 shades available and I am so pleased with the colours I have. These new liquid lip colours are inspired by two of Giorgio Armani Beauty’s most iconic products – the Maetsro Fusion Makeup and the Lip Maestro Velvet Lip Colour They have combined incredible colour intensity with an ultra thin formula and they’ve created a range of rich, pigmented and ultra long wearing matte lip colours. I am seriously impressed.

As with all Armani Beauty products these feel luxurious and are packaged in the with the iconic red lids with the Giorgio Armani Beauty logo in gold, I like that you can see the shades through the glass packaging, it makes picking a colour that much easier. The applicator has been developed by Armani exclusively for the Lip Magnets and they are calling it the Calligraphic Applicator. It gives you great control and precision to apply just the perfect amount of colour.

These liquid lip colours apply with ease and feel incredibly comfortable on the lips, the weightless formulation which is a combination of water, oils and pigments means that it fuses to your lips giving you that high concentrated colour. The water gradually evaporates allowing the oils to deliver a rich, intense colour that is also 4 times thinner than a liquid lip colour.

Once these are on the lips on the colour remains intense for hours and they just do not budge or transfer. I was shocked when I looked in the mirror after drinking & eating & my lip colour was still very much in place. I like that they apply quite fluid but dry down to be beautifully matte.

New Release From Armani Beauty Lip Magnets

The Lip Magnets are available in 18 beautiful shades, everything from pretty pinks to softer nudes and of course a classic vibrant red. I have 4 shades and they’re a good cross section of shades

Second Skin – This is a very pretty nude pink and this has become my everyday colour. Its so easy to wear and looks fresh on the lips.

Front Row – This is deeper plum shade but its not too dark on the lips, this initially applied a little patchy but nothing a second coat didn’t fix. Its a great option for Autumn

Maharajah – This is one very bright, intense pink and its beautiful. The colour is bold in one swipe and looks so vivid and bright on the lips

Hollywood – This is a pretty orange toned red and it looks so vibrant and classic on the lips

Armani Lip Magnet Swatches

Matte lipstick stains are nothing new and almost all brands have released their version but these Armani Lip Magnets feel different on the lips, more natural, less drying and like I said they have serious longevity. I know they’re at the top end of anyone’s budget but if you like to wear a matte lip and are looking to invest in one that is great quality, luxurious and won’t need reapplying for hours.

If you’re able to get to a counter then I urge you to pop down and swatch these, I think you will fall in love with the formula and the colour selection too.

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets* are out now exclusively at Selfridges £27 each and launch Nationwide from 26th October
