Name can make or mar a brand and somehow when I first heard about this brand, I had no idea about their popularity, I envisioned a brand with luxury goods. I do not know why I am so judgmental that I form a picture of anything and everything in a certain way. But I was right. Giorgio Armani has been a popular high end brand who have established some of their products very well in te beauty industry from the Luminous Silk foundation, Eyes to Kill mascara to the Eyes To Kill eye shadows! I have been on a BB cream, CC Cream and foundation experimentation phase so I wanted to try out their Luminous Silk foundation. At the counter, I got to discuss a little bit about my preferences and came back with things other than that foundation!
Giorgio Armani makeup haul:
Giorgio Armani Designer Lift Smoothing Firming Foundation
Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro – 503
Gifts with purchase: Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion foundation, Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Compact
My skin is really dry do the SA suggested I use the Moisturizing and forming foundation. The Luminous Silk Foundation which I wanted to get did not turn to be as moisturizing when I swatched both of the foundations so I decided to pick up the Designer Lift Smoothing Firming Foundation. One thing I noticed with this foundation is that it oxidizes and turns a wee bit orange a few minutes after application! I will use it a few times and then review it properly.
I should have turned to the counter and got the foundation but my feet walked towards the lipstick and lip gloss section (hehe!) I swatched a lot of products and was really impressed by the pigmentation of the Lip Maestro. The colors rich and intense. I had chosen a few but I zeroed in on the Raspberry Red shade – 503. I am in LOVE!
I am so glad that I got two different products to try in the samples. I also got a box of chocolates with 3 different flavors and you did not see it in the haul because it has long been consumed! Two of them were really good 🙂
Here are the swatches of the Designer Lift foundation and Lip Maestro:
As always, stay tuned for the reviews and if you have not already noticed, I am doing the April A to Z blogging challenge where I blog in an alphabetical order 6 days of the week. Today was the day of the Alphabet G so I chose Giorgio Armani. I have had these products for sometime. But as a committed beauty blogger, I did not open anything (except chocolate which is out of scope of this blog) until I finished posting this haul. Except a makeup look on my Youtube channel featuring these products too!
