The Lip Gloss/ Lip Balm Lipstick
In 18 shades, there are so many to choose from depending on your mood. Here I chose my favourite 6, including three of my favourite mauve nudes – I mean this is me after all. I wear nude shades most days, so I wanted to offer a few alternatives for you, if you are anything like me. I went with shade 100 with rose pink undertones, 103 with a slightly peachier undertone and 503 with a mauve finish. My favourite probably being 503, as again I find it the most wearable, and I could imagine so many people picking this out of their purse and applying it on the go – without the need of a mirror. And I had to feature some other shades I loved, including the vibrant coral of 300, the fuchsia of 502 and of course the iconic Armani red, shade 400.
The new My Armani to Go Foundation launched on Boxing Day and I couldn’t wait to try it out for the first time. It goes without saying that cushion foundations are one of the easiest products to carry around on-the-go, especially with the handy sponge and mirror tucked inside. But this product can be used as an everyday foundation product also, and so I applied it to my face in these photographs. The finish is light-medium with a healthy, radiant finish that is neither matte nor overly dewy. In shade 2, it matches my non-tanned skin, but shade 4 is the one I would use for most days (when I’ve bothered to tan). This is going straight into my handbag for touch ups when I’m out and about.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the collection? Are you tempted to try something new? Which shade was your favourite? What do you think of a high-shine balm finish lipstick? I’m hooked, and I can’t wait for more people to jump on this bandwagon, it really is a makeup revelation.
