The brand new Georgio Armani Lip Magnets have recently landed at TSNC HQ, and I’ve wasted no time getting stuck in and trying them all out!
Firstly the name Lip Magnet is rather interesting. I wasn’t too sure what to make of this at first, but the idea is that these are matte liquid lipsticks that specifically bind with the lips for a long lasting, no-migration effect. Which sounds pretty good to me!
The Lip Magnets have been inspired by two of Giorgio Armani Beauty’s most iconic products: the ultra-thin film of their Maestro Fusion Makeup and the incredible colour intensity of their Lip Maestro Velvet Lip Colours. The combination of these features gives the Lip Magnets a super lightweight texture, with the benefit of intense pigmentation.
With this product, Giorgio Armani promises a chic matte finish, with flawless, long-lasting wear – and I have to say I am pretty impressed with the results!
Before I go any further, let me just mention the packaging, which is quite small yet striking – I love the bright red lids! And the applicator has a small indent in the centre, where the product collects when you push the wand into the tube. I like that this holds more product without building up on the applicator, making it hard to use and apply. I also think it’s nice that the applicator is shaped to a point, to help with precision application around the edge of the lips.
There are 18 shades to choose from of which I have eight –
- 502 Mania – an almost neon blue toned barbie pink.
- 300 Tangerine – a bright tangerine orange.
- 301 Heat – a hot mid toned orange.
- 403 Vibrato – a mid pink toned berry.
- 504 Nuda – a light nude pink.
- 505 Second Skin – a nude pink.
- 600 Front Row – a deep mauve.
- 601 Attitude – a deep plum.
After trying all the shades I think Giorgio Armani have done a great job of creating a product to bridge the gap of where a traditional matte lip product becomes comfortable to wear. If you wear matte liquid lipsticks you’ll know they can be incredibly drying, and if you have even the hint of a dry lip before applying them, you’re asking for trouble. The Lip Magnets give a lovely velvety matte finish, that though isn’t quite as opaque as other matte liquid lipsticks I’ve tried (though that can be layered up) you do have the element of comfort here – and therefore improved wearability. Of course it really depends what you’re looking for in a lip product – but if you’re looking for a decently pigmented matte liquid lipstick that won’t turn your lips into a shrivelled prune (you know what I mean!) then you should definitely check these out.
The Georgio Armani Lip Magnets are £27.00 and available now at Armani Beauty.
