Armani Lip Magnet: Mini Review
I received the chance to review Armani’s newest lip products, the Armani Lip Magnet Matte long wear lipstick. Matte lipsticks are having their moment in the spotlight and I’m totally happy about it. No more glossy lips for this girl, I’m all about the sultry and sexy mattes.
The packaging is so compact! I can throw this into a tiny purse, my jacket pocket, my jeans pocket.It’s the perfect size but it still packs a punch. . .or pigment, you might say.
Talking about pigment. . .well, the pigment! When it first comes out of the tube, the consistency is a little gummy, but when you spread it on your lips, it spreads easily (that’s what she said)!
Long lasting-ish. When I wore the red one out for a girls night, I only had to re-apply once every like, 5 hours. However, I did put a base of another red lipstick underneath, so that could have helped.
The colors. Strangely, the color when you’re looking at the tube isn’t exactly the same as in the tube. Looking at it, the colors look a little dull, but are much more vibrant when they are on your actual lips. So I recommend trying these on in person, to see how they really look on you. For example, I didn’t think the red would be that vibrant, but on my lips, they’re an almost vampy red. Definitely my current go to red lip!
Matte? Well, it’s matte-ish. I feel like it takes a while for it to get to matte. When you first put it on your lips, it looks glossy for the first few minutes. But I noticed that when I looked at it later, it did dry out to a matte finish.
I love how easily it glides on and the color payoff, but I do wish it were a little more matte.
