Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers #604 Lilas from Bright Ribbon Collection for Summer 2014, Review, Swatch & FOTD

Giorgio Armani released an unexpected capsule collection called Bright Ribbon, consisting of six nail polishes and five lipsticks (check promo photos here). Although these are already released in France, my local counter haven't heard about it yet. Thanks to Sephora.fr which delivers to Europe, I got my hands on one of the lipsticks and all the nail polishes. I didn't want to invest on more lipsticks remembering from Bella Donna Collection that these can be very sheer. As for a started, I decided on the most interesting looking one, #604 Lilas.

This looks very scary in the tube and I was hoping that it would be as scary as it looks on the lips, but there is nothing to worry, since it is very sheer. It just gives a barely there cool toned hue to the lips and let your own lip color shine through. For the below swatch, I really had to swipe it several times to show color.

Here you can see that it changes the color of my lips a little and make them look cooler. It also doesn't have the shimmery/frosty quality of the Rouge d'Armani Sheers from Belladonna Collection, it is more like a glossy finish with a hint of color.

Final thoughts: All in all a nice addition to my stash but I could also do without it since it is very sheer for my taste. It does feel moisturizing and nice on the lips though. If you like transparent glosses you may like this one too. I know that Chanel has released a bunch of them for their summer collection too, so maybe they are a thing at the moment. 

What do you think about very sheer lippies? Not worth the money or do you like the way your lips are treated?

  1. Hey Sara, when I first saw that color I was like "nooo way!" It really is just a sheer tint on your lips though, and it works well with your eye makeup! I prefer a bit more pigment in my lipsticks. My lips are pigmented to begin with, so everything too sheer winds up looking the same anyways ;)

    1. LOL, me too! I was like no way that I can pull that one off. But then I knew that Armani Sheers are proper sheers so wanted to give it a go ;-)
      Actually I like sheer lippies but at that price point, thought it would have a little more effect.

  2. It would be fun to take it out from the purse and make a retouch infront of some people, they will be scared :D !
    It's just a little desapointing to be so sheer ! It's so scary pretty in the tube !

    Xoxo

    1. You cracked me up!
      Yes I have to do that, say something like "Now you haven't seen the real me! Let me show you!" bring it out and they will all run away :-P
      I wished it would be just a touch more pigmented.

  5. Adore the look you created for the eyes, and the sheer subtle wash of pink lilac works great with it. Sadly, I was hoping for something with a big more bang! I'll be skipping the lip stuff in this collection and hoarding the eyeshadows. Can't wait to see how you like the nail polishes!

    1. Unfortunately nail polishes were also not that exciting, but hey, that eye shadows are all to die for!
      So these being not that good saves our money for the other pretties! :-))

  6. Gibt einen schönen, kühlen, Eis geküssten Hauch... War sehr neugierig wie er aussehen würde! Verstehe aber gut, dass er kein "Must Have" für Dich ist bei dem geringen Effekt. Dennoch schön!

    1. Es ist wirklich nett aber nicht "ground-braking" würde ich sagen ;-)
      Du kannst alles so schön poetisch ausdrucken, <33

  7. It looks better than I thought it would. Way too purple and way too cool for me, but in that full face shot it looks nice on you.

    1. yes, it is somehow wearable although very cool, so maybe not a bad thing. If it would be full on color, I might not be able to pull it off either ;-)

    1. Hi there Belly! Missed you :-**
      I have been playing around with crazy colors Armani brought up. I hope it has been inspirational.

  9. The colour in the tube makes me want to run away but it looks really nice on your lips, I do quite like sheer lipsticks and I am very over due an Armani haul :)

  10. Das erste Bild sah schon etwas "Huch, was ne Farbe" mäßig aus. :-)
    Glücklicherweise ist er ja doch dezenter. Ich glaube, diese Farben lassen die Zähne auch etwas weißer erscheinen.

I love to hear what you think. Fell free to write in English, German or Turkish.
