Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipsticks

I became obsessed with matte lipsticks (just like everyone else, I know...) and I very rarely wear anything else these days. Liquid formulas are my favoruite type and the new Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets*(£27.00) are the ultimate liquid lipstick dream! I am not exaggerating- they are the best liquid lipsticks I have ever tried and I fell in love with them at first application.

There are 18 shades in total and I have six of them to show you today. From pinks and nudes, to reds and purples, there is something for everyone. The packaging is simply gorgeous - sleek and elegant and very luxurious, with a Giorgio Armani logo at the front and a red cap. I love that you can see the colour of each lipstick in the clear tube, as it's so much easier to find the right shade!

The applicator is shaped perfectly, with a nice point to it for precise product application, without the need for lining your lips with a liner or a lip brush. 

The formula is an absolute dream to work with and glides onto the lips beautifully. The Lip Magnets are super pigmented, silky in consistency and dry very quickly. The most important part- they feel ultra comfortable on the lips and I have not experienced any dryness or a tight feeling at all. It feels like I have nothing on. Such an amazing formula, I just can't fault it. The staying power is incredible too and unless you are eating something very oily, the lipstick won't come off. It starts fading a little bit after a good few hours, but it doesn't look patchy and doesn't flake off or bleed. At the end of the day, I was left with with a subtle stain of colour on the lips and it still looked beautiful.

So why are the Lip Magnets so incredible? What's the secret? Well... the unique formulation is a combination of water, oils and pigments that instantly fuse the colour into the lips. After a short while, the water evaporates and you are left with a stunning matte colour and hydrated lips. It's also worth mentioning that the consistency of the Lip Magnets is 4 times thinner than any other liquid lipstick on the market!

DREAM LIQUID LIPSTICK!

The shades I received are:

506 Fusion - peach toned nude
600 Front Row- plummy mauve/dark nude
502 Mania - barbie pink
501 Eccentrico - fuchsia pink
302 Hollywood - orange toned red
 401 Scarlatto - deep red with a pink undertone (couldn't get a good representation of the colour in a photo to be honest, but it's gorgeous!)

Top row: 506 and 600, Middle row: 502 and 501, Bottom row: 302 and 401

Above: all of the colours completely dried (after a few hours). Left to right: 506, 600, 502, 501, 302, 401.

My favourite out of the six shades is definitely Front Row (600). It is simply gorgeous and makes me feel like a million dollars! I also love Fusion and  Eccentrico, but to be honest, I enjoyed wearing all of the colours, even the barbie pink one. I used it mixed with Front Row and Fusion, to add a pink tone to them and it worked a treat! I love mixing liquid lipsticks for a custom colour, or I use a darker shade on the outside and a lighter one in the middle, for an ombre effect.

Overall, I am absolutely in love with the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnets and I cannot recommend them enough. The formula is the best I have ever tried and I think that you need at least one of the colours in your life. At £27.00 each, these don't come cheap, but they are soooo worth it!


At the moment, these are available exclusively to Selfridges, but will launch everywhere else on the 26th of October.

Have you tried the Lip Magnets yet?
