Spring and Summer I always envision my self at the beach. Sitting under an umbrella, sipping something and wearing my favorite orange lipstick. And oncourse lots of sunscreen. Guys, I think I found the best Orange lipstick for summer. This shade is from the Armani Beauty Lip Power Long Lasting Satin Lipstick range.
According to Sephora this “A longwearing satin lipstick that delivers ultra-vivid color in one swipe, all-day wear and comfort, and precision application with an innovative, drop-shaped bullet. Lip Power is an ultra-vivid satin lipstick that provides all-day wear, comfort and a lush silky-smooth feel. It is formulated with protective oils for lip hydration and high-intensity pigments that deliver powerful long-lasting in one swipe. Its innovative drop-shaped bullet allows for ease of application and precise, defined lines. No lip liner needed.”
Packaging Of The Armani Lip Power Lipstick
The lipstick itself is packaged in a long elongated black and red tube. It looks luxe without being heavy. I find it easy to travel with. The tip of the lipstick tube is in the shape of a tear drop which helps with precise application.
Formula Of The Armani Lip Power Lipstick
This lipstick feels like a balm but with a satin finish. It is lightweight and buildable. Also I did not detect any fragrance.
I picked up the shade 301 – Friendly. The brand describes this as a golden coral shade. I love shades like these on my medium skin tone. When I first apply this, it feels very hydrating and nourishing. The formula is very lightweight. It stays for about 5 hours or so. I have to add, since this is a satin formula there is some transfer. With a bright shade like Friendly, I find that there is some staining effect. So even when it starts fading after 5 hours, it fades gradually. There is no dreaded ring around the lips and no color in the center situation.
Most balmy lipsticks give me 2-3 hours max. This last much more than that and most importantly it is very comfortable on my lips. I love this formula and want to pick up some neutral shades from this range.
