Giorgio Armani Beauty the First CC Lipstick

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy - The First "CC" Lipstick

Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick

Welcome to the Second Installment of Luxury Friday this September. This Friday will be on a Very New and Unique lipstick. I had received an email from Armani Beauty about the lipstick's launch and was instantly intrigued. It is the first "CC" lipstick! I had never heard of a Color and Care lipstick and I thought the idea sounded genius. There's nothing I love more than having skincare benefits built in to my makeup. Not only will you be wearing the lipstick but you will be taking care of you lips at the same time.

The Packaging is very Luxurious!

Here is the Skinny of the "CC" Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick from Giorgio Armani Beauty:

With Rouge Ecstasy, the Giorgio Armani laboratories push the boundaries of the exceptional even further with the first “CC” lipstick. “Color & Care” – new innovative hybrid product that marks the start of a new era in lipstick.
Care: Rouge Ecstasy offers the comfort and softness of a lip balm, leaving lips repaired and beautifully enhanced day after day.
Color: This velvety soft, everyday lipstick coats the lips in saturated, ultra-luminous shades with impeccable hold. Application is simple, precise and effective.

I have been wearing my new Armani Beauty "CC" lipstick nonstop for three days now and I absolutely adore it! It is very moisturizing and rich with lip color. There is something special about knowing that the lipstick is helping to repair any damage to my lips, that makes me want to grab for it more. I chose to get the color "Skin 104", because it is a slightly pink nude shade and I knew I would be wearing it a lot because of it's benefits. I wanted the color to be versatile and to be able to wear it with a very made up make up look or simply with no makeup at all. The color I chose will be just perfect when I want to wear a dramatic eye and have a nude lip or for when I just want to enhance my lips with a beautiful nude shade. I will probably go back for another color that has more pop to it, once I use this one longer and see more results.

Swatched: "Skin 104" 

Final Thoughts:

I know that this lipstick is on the pricey side ($34) but I look at my lips how I look at my skin, as an asset and I want to protect them. Your lips like your skin age and I want to keep mine looking young and beautiful for as long as I can. I always use a special lip balm during my morning and night skin care routine, so why wouldn't I want a lipstick that it going to help repair my lips and give me color at the same time. Here is a link to the Giorgio Armani Beauty Site where you can see the full range of colors. I hoped you enjoyed this post and remember to always take care of your lips...:)
