A Perfect Pale Mauve Pairing...Rouge d'Armani #103 and Gloss d' Armani #507



Rouge d'Armani Beige 103 and Gloss d' Armani Pink 507 in direct sunlight.
Here are some quick swatches of two of my favorite mauve lip options from Giorgio Armani Beauty!

I have been wearing Rouge d' Armani Beige 103 for years (it is always exciting for me to completely finish a tube of color) and love the full coverage mauve/pink/nude lip it yields.  The lip color is long lasting yet hydrating and creates a natural sheen on the lips that borderlines on glossy while still remaining creamy and nontransparent.  In my entire lip collection, I don't think I have a duplicate for this specific product's color or texture which is probably why I keep repurchasing it.

Swatch #1 is of Gloss d'Armani Pink 507 and swatch #2 is of Rouge d' Armani Beige 103.
The Gloss d' Armani Pink 507 was an impulse purchase and, upon first use, I realized that it is definitely a close relative to the Beige 103 in terms of color and depth.  It is a bit darker and sheerer and I love to wear it alone, over Beige 103 or over a very pale pink lipstick like LORAC's Baby Doll or Sunday Riley's Mona Lisa (swatched HERE) to add a little sheen and depth.  The gloss texture is slightly tacky without being annoyingly sticky and possesses staying power on par with the Rouge d'Armani line.  Both products are unscented and lack any sort of perceptible flavor which I find pleasing!

Bottom Line: Rouge d'Armani Beige 103 and Gloss d'Armani Pink 507 are lovely additions to a lip wardrobe that values natural pink/beige options.  The formulas on both of these products are phenomenal, assuring hydration and smooth, lasting, color-fast application.  They are excellent, "My lips but better" choices, however, if I had to select just one, I would choose the Rouge d'Armani in Beige 103 for its ultra-flattering creamy pink nude lip powers!

  6. Beautiful shades! I'm beginning to lean towards some nudey shades as of late - so not like me, but I'm really liking that 103!

  7. Glad you you like them! If you are thinking about getting a nude to try, #103 would be an excellent option...it is pink nude with enough depth to not wash out the face. Just super flattering and makes the lips look full!

    Thanks for reading and let me know if you end up settling on a nude lippy!

    Take care,
