Rouge d’Armani Sheers – all shades swatched

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.

 

Corals:

 

300

IMG_7388

 

It’s coral.

IMG_7389

 

Medium nice coral.

IMG_7391

 

Not too bright.

IMG_7394

 

Modern chic.

IMG_7396

 

Coral fans would like it a lot.

IMG_7400

 

 

301

IMG_7402

 

Shiny pink coral.

IMG_7406

 

Well balanced.

IMG_7407

 

With just enough of both pink and coral.

IMG_7410

 

If you don’t like corals, this can be a good way to get on better terms with them.

IMG_7414

 

 

302

IMG_7415

 

Red coral.

IMG_7418

 

It’s a more elegant version of fun coral shade with a touch of red to it.

IMG_7419

 

Quite nice.

IMG_7429

 

Doesn’t get into the whole red brick territory, although I’d think it would.

IMG_7430

 

 

Reds:

 

400

IMG_7435

 

A darker red shade.

IMG_7443

 

Vampy.

IMG_7444

 

Hot.

IMG_7446

 

A good shade to apply lightly during the day, and then add some of it to make it brighter at night to go out.

IMG_7450

 

 

401

IMG_7455

 

Pink red.

IMG_7458

 

When we mix pink and red we get something on the way to raspberry.

IMG_7460

 

That’s what it is, but not all the way.

IMG_7462

 

Kind of getting there.

IMG_7464

 

 

402

IMG_7470

 

Orange red.

IMG_7472

 

Or else red brick.

IMG_7475

 

The hottest lip shade of fall season 2015.

IMG_7477

 

But other than that it’s a classic. So, it will work even when this season is gone.

IMG_7482

 

 

Pinks:

 

500

IMG_7486

 

Fuchsia pink.

IMG_7488

 

That is pink with some purple to it.

IMG_7495

 

Nicely done. I like it.

IMG_7499

 

Very sprightly.

IMG_7503

 

 

501

IMG_7507

 

Pink.

IMG_7510

 

Classical. Girly.

IMG_7511

 

Warmer than 500.

IMG_7515

 

Cute. But can be womanly too.

IMG_7518

 

 

502

IMG_7523

 

Pale pink.

IMG_7525

 

A nude shade, only in the pink territory.

IMG_7528

 

Tender pink rose petal like.

IMG_7530

 

I do think that such nude pinks are actually more flattering than nude beige lip shades.

IMG_7533

 

 

Plums:

 

600

IMG_7537

 

Mauve.

IMG_7539

 

Or should I say pink plum?

IMG_7541

 

It’s a sophisticated plum.

IMG_7545

 

It doesn’t stand out. It’s just there. Adding to your overall look.

IMG_7546

 

 

601

IMG_7551

 

Plum.

IMG_7553

 

This shade is what we think, when we hear plum.

IMG_7555

 

Darker. Sultry.

IMG_7559

 

Sexy.

IMG_7561

 

 

602

IMG_7564

 

Here we go. That’s the shade I was talking about.

IMG_7566

 

I mean, I love Rouge d’Armani Sheers lipstick, and I think their range is quite nice but this… c’mon, guys!

IMG_7569

 

Vampire purple.

IMG_7571

 

Or ink purple.

IMG_7575

 

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.

IMG_7598

 

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
