Giorgio Armani Sand (100) & Sandstone (102) Lip Maestros Review & Swatches

Giorgio Armani Sand (100) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with warm, orange undertones and a cream finish. The texture was lightweight, spreadable, and felt velvety–denser but not heavy or too “wet” on my lips. It had nearly opaque color coverage but didn’t reach full opacity in one layer (most noticeable on my bottom lip), and there was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines, though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It wore nicely for five hours and was hydrating while worn.

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.

Giorgio Armani Sandstone (102) Lip Maestro ($38.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark plummy brown with moderate, warm undertones and a lightly glossy, cream finish. The liquid lipstick had a smooth, velvety consistency that applied evenly and spread comfortably across my lips without accentuating my lip lines. It had rich pigmentation that adhered well and lasted nicely for six hours, while the formula felt moisturizing while worn.
