Spring has sprung and Giorgio Armani Beauty fanatics sung! Inspired by vibrant Indian embroideries, the Maharajah collection rekindled my fascination with all things fuchsia.

Before dark berry, fuchsia dominated my lipstick vocab. Hard to spell to most so we’ll call it hot pink. A limited edition for Spring, Rouge d’Armani Maharajah is the star of the entire collection. It’s incontestably hot pink with blue undertone. With high-voltage pigmentation and impressive wear time, it did revive my fondness for this almost-forgotten shade.  This lippy is semi-creamy with velvety matte texture. Effortlessly stunning, in love I am!

But see I can’t retire berry yet no matter how much I try. Good thing there is Garcone from the Rouge Ecstasy collection (the other two shades are Pink Blush and Maharajah). It’s luminous magenta with covetable hydration. From utterly sweet to vampy, don’t mess with da zilla.

Consistent with Giorgio Armani lipsticks, these beauties are housed in fashion-forward tubes with fool-proof magnetic closure. It’s one feature I do appreciate because I loathe accidental uncapping of lipsticks inside my purse, stains ain’t joke!

Here are swatches in comparison to some lipsticks I unearthed from the trove. Maharajah is quite similar to YSL Fuchsia in Excess (reviewed here) but the latter has more shiny finish. Garcone is a tad subtle compared to Marc Jacobs Magenta (reviewed here) and Cabaret (reviewed here).

Bright lips are on trend this season, dare to wear one!

    Thank you for the comparison swatches! I was hoping to find a pretty fuchsia but they all seem to be too cool-toned. I think I can make that YSL Fuchsia in Excess work though 😉

    These are both stunningly beautiful shades, and they are absolutely strikingly gorgeous on you!

    When I saw the name "Maharajah", I fell IN LOVE because you know… anyway… these shades are RICH and gorgeous! You look amazing in them! <3

    I love the theme of the collection, Maharaja, so evocative! Love both shades but especially the darker one. Dying to see what the eye shadows are like (if they are part of the collection)

    The two on the left are gorgeous!

    Oh my gosh, I love them both!! I especially love the berry tones of Garcone- gorgeous!

    Garcone is everything on you! Love them both! I really am loving that cute plaid on you too!

    Garcone is my favorite

    Such gorgeous shades of lipstick. I want both!

    So pretty!! You are looking great!

    They are both gorgeous and look great on you! I think Garcone would be my favorite but it's so hard to choose I'd probably just favor them both!

  15. March 31, 2015 / 2:07 am

    I like a nice fuchsia, but I love berries. This one is gorgeous!

  16. March 31, 2015 / 3:29 am

    These look fabulous on you. I can't carry those shades off but they were made for you!

    What beautiful colors! And I love the way the lipstick looks with your plaid shirt!

    Amazing shades! I think Garcone is my favourite of the two.
