I love this lipstick, a gorgeous peachy-nude with a tiny hint of extremely subtle shimmer. For reference, I am MAC NC15, Bobbi Brown Alabaster, dark brown eyes and hair. The Rouge d'Armani formula can't be beat. Its far more moisturizing than Rouge Coco or the Bobbi Brown range. It glides on easily, nice slip, and moisturizes well. I put it on par with my Lip Chics, actually better since the Lip Chics are too fragranced & the Armani has no fragrance. The packaging is luxe and heavy.
Would I repurchase? Oh yes, I have already bought three backups, and would buy three more! HG.

I got two of these given to me. My sister passed them on after trying them. She hated them and so do I. What a disappointment. I tried 101 and 105 both nudes with slight shimmer. They are creamy and very sheer. My biggest issue is with the lasting ability or lack there of. These are supposed to be their long-wearing lipsticks? Are they kidding? I have to reapply every hour. They are very sheer, very glossy and that's always a bad combo for lasting ability. These are not drying I'll give them that. The colors are fine but blah and nothing special. These are certainly not worth $30+. I do love the packaging which is why I gave two stars instead of 1. It's pretty and modern and love the magnetized cap. Otherwise these are a huge fail for me.

I love the texture of Rouge D'Armani lipsticks - they are moisturizing yet they have good staying power for a creamy lipstick. My lips tend to get dry, and this is smooth and a bit glossy. This is a great beige lip that is slightly browner than their Beige 102 shade, which I also have. Beige 105 is a good color if you are fair complected and your natural lip color is pale - this goes on sheer. If you naturally have a lot of pigmentation in your lips, this color may not show up that much on you and you may prefer a darker shade. On me Beige 105 is somewhat similar to the color of MAC Hug Me but the Rouge D'Armani lipsticks last longer on me than MAC's Lustre formula (which is what Hug Me is) as opposed to MAC's Mattes which have great staying power. Armani is expensive, so at $30 a pop make sure you love a color before you buy. I paired Beige 105 with Bobbi Brown's Naked lip liner and it's a good match - it looks really polished with that(I also recommend Beige 102, a lovely peachy-pink beige, if you prefer a peachy tone. Armani has four or five Beiges to choose from with different numbers, probably because this type of lip color is versatile and can be worn every day and looks good with any eye design.) This formula is fragrance-free. The magnetic cap is a nice touch. I gave this lipstick, 105 four lippies, but I gave five lippies to Beige 102.
