Check out my opinions about the Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipsticks below. #contest #GiorgioArmani #influenster @influesnter @GiorgioArmani #ecstasyshineI’ve never received, tested or owned anything from Giorgio Armani and I was so elated that Influenster sent this to me to test out and review. This lipstick retails for $38 and you can pick yours up at your local Sephora. The ecstasy shine collection comes in 21 different shades. 3 of those 21 shades are exclusive to Sephora. I received the shades 400 four hundred and 100 smile. Four hundred is a rich red and smile is a great pink nude with the most subtle amount of shimmer in it. You can see from the photos below that there are little bits of glitter in there.No matter which color you choose they each come in the same exterior red casing with the GA logo on the front. Each lipstick comes in its own box too. The red tubes are magnetized for a tight seal. The shape of the lipstick is not completely circular either which adds another level of detailed execution. These lipsticks look high-end.The ecstasy shine collection is meant to wear like a balm giving you a hydrated bold lip color for up to 8 hours. These lip colors are so bold and pigmented. One swipe and you’re good. The colors look a lot different from hand swatches to lip swatches. What’s crazy is that on your hand they look very sheer with a subtle tint but on the lips, BAM, bold color. The formula is super lightweight and feels like there is nothing on your lips. They apply so easily and smooth. They feel soft and buttery too. Four hundred doesn’t wear as red as I thought it would. It has a subtle magenta undertone but I’m ok with that. The color does not last that well through eating and drinking but I look forward to re-applying the color because it feels so good on the lips. The color came off a little on my cup while I was drinking. These lipsticks are not sticky at all; they remain smooth the whole length of wear. When I went to take off four hundred (the red shade) it left some color behind like a stain. Smile is a great natural lip color nude. You see none of the shimmer/glitter on your lips after application, only a beautiful shine. This color is great for everyday wear. On another note, these smell a little like plastic but that goes away after application.
A big thank you to Influenster and Giorgio Armani for sending me these lipsticks to test and review. I hope you all found this review helpful. Let me know if you have tried these lipsticks before. What’s our favorite shade? Thank you so much for reading. Until next time,
