Oh yes! This had made me happy! Flash Laquer glosses from Armani are totally incredible (super shiny and really long lasting) and now there’s a new, more intense version in town. Check out the Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer line up. I have 12 of the shades swatched right here.

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer promises to be a glossy, liquid film that stays on the lips. You can play with the finish to get a soft stain or seriously lacquered lips.

I had a proper play with No 402 which I love.

I wanted to swatch them all for you on the lips in one go, but they are really not that kind of lip product! Once these are on, they are staying on. I used 3 coats to achieve this super shiny look, letting each coat dry in between application. Even with 3 coats it feels light on the lips and has survived food and 2 cups of tea!

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Lacquer is £27 and available at Selfridges now. I can’t wait to try more of the shades.

  1. Your blog is my reference for the brand spanking new releases! I was wondering how these compare to YSL’s glossy stains? Thanks in advance.

    1. thanks for reading!! They are quite similar in feel, but these are more pigmented and the shine doesn’t dull down at all. Let me know if you have any questions! xx
