Lipglosses for a Lipgloss Snob, Part 1: Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani in Pink 508 — Blush.

Hi, my name is Arianne and I am a lipgloss snob.  I hate goopy lips but love the shine, even though Mr. Glitter Geek says “it looks like you ate a greasy hamburger and didn’t wipe your mouth.”  Articulate, isn’t he?  As a lipstick addict, one of my beauty resolutions this year is to try more lipglosses.  Lipglosses for a Lipgloss Snob is a series of posts that highlights my favourite lipgloss formulas at the moment.


Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani in Pink 508 – Blush

Thank goodness it’s not hard to like Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani in Pink 508 — Blush ($36).  It is easily the best lipgloss formula I’ve tried.

Gloss d’Armani is so cozy to wear on the lips.  It is scent- and taste-free, has smooth glide and no stickiness.  Pink 508 — Blush is a sheer, milky pink with subtle gold pearl.  The gold pearl makes Pink 508 – Blush easy to wear on both warm and cool skin tones.

This lipgloss makes my lips look impossibly plump.  Instead of the usual round or square tube, Gloss d’Armani are packaged in sexy oval tubes.  That and the shiny “GA” make them luxuriously extraordinary.

      Thanks Larie! I think it’ll be really pretty over bright pink lipsticks to tone them down a bit.

    One of the main reasons I don’t like glosses is because of the stickiness. Is the formula tacky at all?

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hey Dani, I hate stickiness, too! This one is only very slightly tacky so it sticks around longer than non-sticky glosses, but it’s not to the point that it drives me mad. It’s a great formula. :)

    Wow, I have some GA lipsticks but never tried their glosses… I need one now!!!! Thanks for your review, you’ve just created a new lemming ;)

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      You’re welcome, Anne. :) Check out the entire collection while you’re at it. I’m eyeing those eye pencils myself.

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

  • Danielle

    First, that shade looks lovely on you and second, the very next lipgloss I purchase will be Giorgio Armani. It sounds amazing!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      It’s amazing. :) Better than the Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss; less sticky.

    Eeehhh…I don’t think I could spend that much on a gloss. I just…I can’t….justify it. D:

    Hahahaha, Scherbie looks sooo unimpressed :P

    That gloss is gorgeous! Very cool that it’s scent free too.
