Sheer lipstick is my favourite lip colour texture. It combines the two things I love most – shiny colour and comfortable feel on the lips. My second favourite lip colour texture is lipgloss, it has all the shine I want, but doesn’t really have as much of this soothing quality to it that I also want to be there. I’ll post my best sheer lipstick rating soon. For now I’d like to talk about – Rouge d’Armani Sheers – it’s so great. Just awesome. Here’s why.
It’s not scented. I don’t know about you, to me it’s a must in almost any makeup that it doesn’t have any kind of intrusive scent of preferably any at all. It has this beautiful shiny finish to it. It’s balmy on the lips, nice and caring. I love it. Also, if you prefer fuller coverage, you can layer Rouge d’Armani Sheers heavily, its texture is great, so it easily withstands this test.
There are twelve shades in the permanent range. This summer six new shades were released and are said to be a permanent addition to the range. If you’d like to see them, please, see my post called Rouge d’Armani Sheers Lipstick – 6 new summer 2015 shades.
The twelve shades I’m going to talk here are split into four categories: corals, reds, pinks and plums. I think this subdivision can be helpful to some people. Personally, I don’t care much. What I don’t like though is that there’s no name of each shade, or at least, it’s not stated anywhere on the package. It’s a big drawback to me, because this is how I navigate my shades – by their names. Oh well… the quality is worth it. The range is quite wide, but there’s room for expansion, I think. I think the shades are quite nice and very Armani. Some people would lack beiges in the range, Armani had a whole limited edition collection though with six nude shades back in 2012. In the colour palette the way it is now there’s this one shade too, which is just… crazy 🙂 Let’s not rush though, we’ll get to it. Just look at these twelve beauties here.
Medium nice coral.
Not too bright.
Coral fans would like it a lot.
Shiny pink coral.
With just enough of both pink and coral.
If you don’t like corals, this can be a good way to get on better terms with them.
It’s a more elegant version of fun coral shade with a touch of red to it.
Doesn’t get into the whole red brick territory, although I’d think it would.
A darker red shade.
A good shade to apply lightly during the day, and then add some of it to make it brighter at night to go out.
When we mix pink and red we get something on the way to raspberry.
That’s what it is, but not all the way.
Kind of getting there.
Or else red brick.
The hottest lip shade of fall season 2015.
But other than that it’s a classic. So, it will work even when this season is gone.
That is pink with some purple to it.
Nicely done. I like it.
Warmer than 500.
Cute. But can be womanly too.
A nude shade, only in the pink territory.
Tender pink rose petal like.
I do think that such nude pinks are actually more flattering than nude beige lip shades.
Or should I say pink plum?
It’s a sophisticated plum.
It doesn’t stand out. It’s just there. Adding to your overall look.
This shade is what we think, when we hear plum.
Here we go. That’s the shade I was talking about.
I mean, I love Rouge d’Armani Sheers lipstick, and I think their range is quite nice but this… c’mon, guys!
Or ink purple.
Is this Armani take on special effects and horror movies makeup? Seriously, I can’t picture this shade looking good on anyone. Only in the movies. On creatures not human. Ok, Ok, maybe, some – very few people – can pull it. But should it be in the permanent range? I don’t think so. It’s hilarious. It’s really is.
Here’s a swatch of the whole range side by side, left to right here I have all the above: 300, 301, 302, 400, 401, 402, 500, 501, 502, 600, 601, 602.
I love this lipstick. It’s just so-o good. Never lets me down.
Even this one weirdo shade doesn’t bother me much. Just makes me smile and shade my head. Please, Armani, can I have more shades of this Rouge d’Armani Sheers? I want it!
P.S. Six new shades were added to the range in summer 2015. To see them, go here Rouge d’Armani Sheers Lipstick – 6 new summer 2015 shades
