Giorgio Armani Acajou (207) & Boudoir (507) Lip Maestros Review & Swatches

 

Acajou (207)

Giorgio Armani Acajou (207) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with subtle, warm undertones and a cream finish with the finest pearl strewn throughout (not enough to make it visibly shimmery to me in person). It had a smooth, velvety texture that was spreadable, lightweight but had some substance to it, that covered my lips with opaque coverage in a single layer. The color applied evenly, didn’t sink into my lip lines, and lasted beautifully for seven hours on me, while the formula felt hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.22 oz. – $172.73 Per Ounce

The Lip Maestro Notorious formula is supposed to have a “luminous matte” finish with “8 hours of wear” and “high pigment.” The Notorious shades are inspired by “chic Hollywood glamour” but otherwise appear very similar in feel to the original Lip Maestro formula. The consistency has more slip and a velvety-smooth feel that softly “clings” to the lips, so while the finish has a glossier look for the first few hours, the color stays on well. If you’ve ever used a silicone-based primer, there’s a bit of that feel to the formula overall. Most shades last between six and eight hours on me, are non-drying to lightly hydrating, and comfortable to wear. The formula is unscented and has no discernible taste.

Boudoir (507)

Giorgio Armani Boudoir (507) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a pearl finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The inclusion of the pearl made it combine better with the formula compared to applying a gloss on top, as the liquid format makes it easy for the shimmer to get overwhelmed by the liquid lipstick in practice. The consistency felt velvety, smooth, and dense without being heavy, so it was comfortable to wear. It stayed on well for five and a half hours and felt moisturizing while worn.
