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.
