Giorgio Armani Rose Sand (523) & Rose Nomad (524) Lip Maestros Review & Swatches

Rose Sand (523)

Giorgio Armani Rose Sand (523) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with warmer undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips. The doe-foot applicator had just the right amount of product for one-stroke application, and I felt like I had good control over the edges (without having to be too patient).

The liquid lipstick had a velvety, smooth, and spreadable texture that felt lightweight but had enough substance to adhere well to my lips for better wear. As this doesn’t dry down, it wears down to a more matte finish after two hours of wear (or faster if blotted, whether intentionally or by drinking out of a glass or cup!). It wore beautifully for six and a half hours and was moisturizing while worn.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Strawberry Girl (P, $30.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar).Bobbi Brown Guava (P, $37.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).Colour Pop UR Thriving (P, $7.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar).Pat McGrath Candy Flip (P, $40.00) is darker, cooler, less glossy (90% similar).YSL Rosewood Supreme (92) (P, $36.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).Sephora Slay (18) (P, $13.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar).Charlotte Tilbury Too Bad I’m Bad (P, $34.00) is cooler, less glossy (85% similar).MAC Pumpkin (LE, $25.00) is lighter, better quality (85% similar).Colour Pop Mrs. (LE, $7.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (85% similar).NARS Tolede (P, $26.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar).

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.

Rose Nomad (524)

Giorgio Armani Rose Nomad (524) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark plum with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. There seemed to be the most minute amount of pearl throughout but not to the point where it actually changed the finish, so they seemed to contribute to a more luminous finish than anything else.

The texture was smooth, velvety, and non-sticky, which made it easy to spread across my lips for even coverage that didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The color payoff was opaque in a single stroke, and it stayed on well for seven hours and felt hydrating over time.
