Being a lip gloss gal is no news anymore to many of you, but for the last three months I seem to have developed an addiction for Giorgio Armani products. The latest high-end lip gloss I purchased was Giorgio Armani No.108 Flash Lacquer shade, which is part of the permanent collection. When it comes to lip glosses I love almost every shade (except red, it is just not my thing) and finish, but I’m truly looking for a non-sticky formula.

Giorgio Armani No.108 Flash Lacquer ($30.00 for 6.5 ml/0.22 fl oz) is a medium caramel-brown with warn undertones, golden shimmer and high shine finish. This color is beautiful, but very natural look in the same time. It is well known that Flash Lacquer lip glosses provide the highest reflection ever achieve, even after blotting lips.The color has a semi-sheer opacity, doesn’t change my natural lip color with much, but just ads a soft caramel hue with a brilliant high shine. My lips appear so fresh and desirable, not to mention a bit fuller due to the intense glossy finish. The colors looks so glamorous in different lights and just brilliant in the sunlight.
The formula glides on evenly across the lips, without pulling or tugging and doesn’t sink into lip lines. The is lightweight, non-sticky or tacky and very comfortable to wear.
I just like that it has this nice sparkle and shimmer, even though the color is not pigmented or opaque on the lips. This has quickly become one of my go-to lip glosses whenever I want a nude lip but with a twist of glamour.
I had about 4 hours wear with this formula, without drying out my lips. Once the color was gone, I remained with a bit of that golden shimmer on my lips.
