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 Maestro 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 highly 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 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. It’s so easy to wear and looks fresh on the lips.

Front Row – This is deeper plum shade but it’s 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 it’s beautiful. The colour is bold with 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

Miller Harris Rose Silence eau de parfum* 

Not one part of this Rose Silence fragrance smells like your typical Rose scented product. Its romantic but not old-fashioned, its floral but yet sweet and it has a touch of musk but it’s not overpowering. It’s an absolute delight and would be lovely for all ages. It has notes of,

  • Top notes: mandarin, blackcurrant
  • Heart notes: rose
  • Base notes: patchouli, cashmere musk

I really enjoy fragrances that have patchouli in them and that together with the fruity notes of blackcurrant and mandarin to give it a touch of zest and the cashmere adds a lovely freshness to the mix. The rose is delicate and makes this a very sensual and romantic scent. Its a scent that lasts all day and I have been getting a lot of compliments on my perfume this past month which is always lovely.

Effortless Eyesdadow : Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks

Cream Eyeshadows

Cream Eyeshadows

I seem to be attracted to makeup that comes in the form of a crayon & these Laura Mercier Caviar Eyeshadow Sticks called my name. This set of 4 mini ones were a Christmas release in Space.NK and I’m so glad I treated myself to them as I’ve used them so much. They are perfect for those of us that like to get ready quickly but still look put together.

Caviar Sticks For Eyes

What I like most about these is their effortless application, one swipe across your lids and a little blend with your finger & you’re ready to go. They apply a really good even amount of colour. If you wanted to spend a little more time you can put down a little more colour or combine a couple of the shades and blend out the edges with a brush. These are all very pigmented and the shades I have are very pretty & wearable. They all have a slight metallic finish to them but nothing too glitzy. These twist up so no need to sharpen and they’re handy for travel. Cream shadows are my go-to eye look when I’m in a time crunch.

If you have oily lids or if eyeshadow usually creases on you then these will be your new best friend as they glide across your lids without tugging, their creamy consistency means they’re easy to blend then they dry and don’t budge. When I initially swatched these in the store they were on my hand until the next morning despite washing my hands several times.  They stay all day without transferring, creasing or fading, that’s got to be all anyone wants form their eyeshadow, right? You can also use these as a base/primer and apply your regular powder shadows over the top for a more dramatic look but I mostly wear these by themselves as the colours are pigmented.

Caviar Stick Swatches

L-R  RoseGold //Amethyst // Pink Opal // Sugar Frost.

Rosegold is a stunning peachy copper colour and looks perfect worn all over the lid, it is a really pretty shade. The colour pay off is opaque in one swipe.

Amethyst is a deep taupe with a touch of shimmer. This is my most used shade out of the four. Its great for day or night and just gives your lids a lovely wash of colour. It has a metallic finish & is also pretty paired with Pink Opal

Pink Opal is a frosty pink and looks lovely. I found this shade was a little harder than the others to blend but it still looks nice on & is a great inner corner highlight. It is the least pigmented but is subtle and gives your eyes a touch of brightness.

Sugar Frost is a golden champagne shade with lots of glitz, this is the shade I wear the least but I think this would be a pretty colour for a night out. If you apply this in too much of a rush it can look a little patchy but if you spend a moment to blend it before it dries you get an even distribution of colour.

I think Amethyst and Rosegold are my two favourite shades and I think they wear the best and apply effortlessly on my lids. If you have time to apply a primer under these they will sit a little better on your eyelids. Being a little older my eyelids have some wrinkles so I do always apply a primer. It makes my shadows sit better & wear longer.

Let me know if you have tried any of these Caviar Sticks & what shade is your favourite.

All four of these are in their permanent collection and available full size. I will be buying a few more of these as they have 18 to pick from ranging from smoking grey to gorgeous mint greens. Full size these are £20.50 and available from SPACE.NK
