Introducing our first #SHEbyDC series — an initiative we started to get YOU GUYS involved in all the latest beauty launches and updates. It is a platform where we also get to hear REAL reviews from you guys and to also show the rest of you how different products look on different skin tones and facial features!

Red Lips Week By Giorgio Armani Beauty

Giorgio Armani Beauty kicks off our first #SHEbyDC series, and this is held in conjunction with Armani Beauty’s Red Lips Week, a month-long campaign that highlights key Armani Beauty products that will help accentuate your inner powerful glam goddess. Key products include the My Armani To Go Essence-In-Foundation Cushion, the Power Fabric Long-Wear High Cover Foundation, Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick, and the Si Passione Giorgio Armani Eau de Parfum, all of which were used for the photos you see below!

Complimentary To Go Beauty Services

Red Lips Week also brings to our attention the Giorgio Armani To Go Beauty Services, which are complimentary mini makeovers you can enjoy at all Armani Beauty boutiques! If you want to pamper yourself with a mini makeover (this includes discovering the right foundation, lipstick, and fragrance for you!), you can sign up for the #EXPRESSYOURRED EXCLUSIVE SERVICE which lasts 20 minutes. Or if you are all about achieving dewy glowy skin like me, then sign up for the ARMANI GLOW session!

#SHEbyDC: Thoughts on Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro #400

[blockquote author=”” pull=”normal”]Rachel: “I like how the Lip Maestro #400 has a light texture to it. It has a matte finish but does not feel dry at all — in fact, my lips feel moisturised! I like how the #400 shade complements my skin tone too!”[/blockquote]

[blockquote author=”” pull=”normal”]Rexy: The #400 is incredibly pigmented, I can cover my whole lips with just one swipe. The applicator makes it easy to apply the lipstick as well, and it feels comfortable on the lips. I really like the sleek and stylish packaging too! [/blockquote]

[blockquote author=”” pull=”normal”]Atiqah: For someone who likes pink and red lip tones, the #400 has my approval! This shade of red is very vibrant, and I kinda feel more confident wearing it! The lipstick has a velvet texture to it, and application is smooth!  [/blockquote]

You’ve heard from our 3 readers, now it’s time to try the Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick in #400 out yourself! Sign up for a complimentary makeover here!
