Armani Lip Shimmer Glosses

This is for Suzanne who requested swatches of all my Armani Lip Shimmers together in one photo. These retail in the US for $26 and are available at various Saks, Neimans, Bloomingdales and Nordstroms locations. I purchased all of mine from Saks over the years - I realize the shelf life of a lipgloss is typically 1-2 years, but I am not one to pay attention to expiration dates for makeup. If it still smells good, I continue to use it.

I want to let you know up front that most of these are no longer made and are now discontinued. You may be able to find more of the older shades instore rather than online, so I recommend trying your local Saks or Nordstrom to see if they carry some of the older shades.

Check GiorgioArmaniBeauty.com for the current shades. The spring shades are not listed online yet for some reason.

How on earth did I accumulate so many Armani Lipglosses? I have no idea - but it's normally been a purchase of 1-2 glosses per season. Most of these are about 50% used up which you might not be able to tell from the photos. I had to swirl and pump the tubes a bit to get the gloss moved around so they weren't all settled on the bottoms. I do find I use these a lot - they are on the sheerer side and have a smooth texture. I always layer over a lipstick or lipliner. Most of these are too sheer to wear on their own since I have a lot of pink in my lips.

  1. Sabrina, your blog is such an invaluable resource. Two years after you wrote this, I used this post to purchase my first Armani Lip Shimmers last night. Even though we're totally different skin tones, I chose based on your excellent swatches. Thank you so much!
