Armani Lip Magnet – 504 Nuda

NUDA1


[Georgio Armani Lip Magnet Liquid Lipstick – 504 Nuda]

Price: $38

Amount: 3.9 ml / 0.13 oz


NUDA2I wanted a lip magnet for ages but could never decide on a shade.

I usually pick up one shade from a line before going back for others, so this first buy had to be the perfect daily shade.

After thirty minutes of debating between 504 Nuda and 505 Second Skin, I opted for Nuda because it seemed like a gorgeous muted coral.

NUDA3As always, ingredient list.

Beware; just like the Lancome Juicy Shakers, these babies are flammable.

NUDA4.jpgTo be honest, I was never wowed by this design. It reminds me of those seal stamps we use in Korea (called 인감도장), which brings up the imagery of banks and house loans and life that’s too painfully HD realistic.

And the cute belt buckle-like logo reminds me of LG Electronics lol.

NUDA5But that color… that sumptuous color. And the way it feels when the applicator touches your skin…  erased all my doubts about the design.

The color really sticks to you like magnet. Not tacky, not sticky, but magnetic.

NUDA6The pointed doe-foot applicator is sharp enough for detailed work.

I don’t need a lip liner with this product.

NUDA7Well. Here’s another miserable fail. These aren’t dupes, but … similar color groups. They go well together. Let’s leave it at that.

From bottom to top:

  • Armani Lip Magnet – 504 Nuda
  • Nature Republic Kiss My Mini Lipstick – 01 Juliet Rose
  • Tate LipSurgence Lipgloss – Blushing Bride

NUDA8Comparison with another favorite shade: “YSL Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in 412 Rose Mix.”

Right pic: Left shade is “Armani_Nuda,” and right shade is “YSL_Rose Mix.”

Both gorgeous shades. “Nuda” was my ideal version of theBalm’s “Matte Hughes _ Committed.” Committed was a tad too dull & orangey to by my favorite daily hue; this takes the cake.

NUDA9Perfect daily color.

Now that I’ve seen how this performs, I kinda want to try “505 Second Skin” and “301 Heat” .. “507 Garconne,” too.

 

I lie. I want them all.
