Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani #408 Lipstick
I’m so over winter. It pains me to no end that there is such a lack of light in the morning and in the evenings. It also puts such a serious crimp on my photo taking abilities. Yes, the life of a beauty blogger.
Case in point: my attempts above to take an accurate shot of Giorgio Armani’s Rouge d’Armani* in #408. It’s been nearly impossible to capture how beautiful it is. It’s like a deep red wine colour, which is a colour I’ve been obsessed about this winter.
Rouge d’Armani #408, called Rosewood Red, has been described as a cool-toned red or raspberry red with a bit of fine shimmer. On me, it has a bit more of purple undertone. It is a highly pigmented lipstick though in the photos here, I wore it in a more muted way by patting it on with my finger. I just felt like it you know?
I haven’t tried many Rouge d’Armani lipsticks but the ones I’ve tried are super comfortable to wear with great staying power.
Rouge d’Armani #408 is such a versatile colour that can be worn for a night out or at the office. The swatch below is a lot closer to the actual colour than what you see on my lips in the photo. But I think you can see that it does add a nice finish to a look, and has a very sophisticated feel to it.
This lipstick is definitely one of my new favourites this month.
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
