Armani recently came out with a new lipstick called Rouge Ecstasy. I have never tried any of the Armani lipsticks before, but I was very intrigued by its claims of being the first CC-Lipstick. The CC stands for Care & Color. Care- offers comfort and softness of a lip balm, leaving the lips repaired. Color – velvety soft, everyday lipstick that coats the lips in saturated, ultra luminous shades. There are 36 shades in this line, but I only picked 2 out to begin with.
I bought 102 Essenza & 501 Peony, two shades that I knew I would get good use out of. They are both highly pigmented and last at least 2 hrs on the lips. Even though the color might not last too long, I still feel the balminess of the lipstick. I have to say my lips feel well hydrated after I wear these.
The packaging is ultra sleek. It has a magnetic closure, which I always find luxurious. At first I wasn’t a big fan of the red, but I got over it. They are also very easy to apply. No need for a lip brush, you can use them straight out of the tube. With one application you can get a sheer look or you can build it up to a more pigmented, dramatic look.
Over all I am a fan! I definitely want to get a few more shades, maybe a few red shades. So I give 2 thumbs up and suggest if you like an easy to wear lipstick
