Giorgio Armani Granite (101) & Cedar (206) Lip Maestros Reviews & Swatches


Granite (101)

Giorgio Armani Granite (101) Lip Maestro is a deep, muted peach with warmer undertones and a a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which spread evenly and smoothly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines or feathering beyond my natural lip. The texture was lightly creamy, not too thick or too thin, velvety, and comfortable to wear–flexible without being too slippery. The glossiness wore away after an hour or two, depending on how much drinking I did (of water). It stayed on nicely for five hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Cedar (206)

Giorgio Armani Cedar (206) Lip Maestro is a rich, deep copper with warm, balanced red and orange undertones and a cream finish. There was the barest amount of micro-shimmer–so fine that I almost didn’t catch it, even in the close-up photo (should tell you how nearly invisible it is in person!). It had opaque pigmentation that adhered evenly and smoothly across my lips. The consistency was lightweight, velvety with moderate slip but didn’t feel too wet or slippery on my lips. It had more of moderate, glossy sheen initially, but it wore down to a more satin-matte finish with an hour or two (or blot once or twice to get it right off the bat). It wore well for six and a half hours and was hydrating over time.
