Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Matte Lacquer Swatches

L-R: 501, 502, 503, 504, 200, 202, 300, 400, 401, 201

Thankfully, my swatches of the new Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro Matte Lacquer are infinitely better compared to the Burberry ones. Apologies for the messy numbering. The lip glosses were scattered around the counter and I swatched it all before I was told that I missed #201.

I couldn't test these out at the counter because I had to go for a facial immediately after and the SA mentioned it was really staining. My impression based on swatching is that these are really creamy, equal to or better than the Guerlain Rouge G L'Extraits. Without trying it, I cannot say if it will be drying.

The Lip Maestros are now available online at Nordstrom. I swatched the above at Saks Fifth Avenue New York.

  2. I was kinda hoping there would be a neutral/blue-toned red, but still. Definitely picking one up when it comes out here (December) to see how the formula works!

  3. I like 400 the best! It's out of my price-point, but interesting nonetheless.

  4. I am hoping the Bellevue counter will have these by this weekend, as my mom will be in town and we're going shopping :) I kind of want 201. Brown and all.

    1. thanks, xiao! i've been hesitant to try the guerlain extrait b/c of price, but since these are the same price as ysl vernis a levres, i feel a little more justified trying these out :)

  9. 501 looks gorgeous, like a cooler version of Macs old bare slimshine. I'm loving the oranges, too.

  11. I'm loving far too many of these, but I will need to find out if they're drying before I buy one (or more). I have lips that dry out far too easily to risk spending this much money on something I can't wear :(
