As I've already alluded to, the lasting power of the Rouge Ecstasy formula is remarkable. I find myself getting four hours of extremely comfortable wear with a single application (which, in my case, is a couple of swipes). The finish is semi-glossy, but the formula is stalwart enough to avoid migration and wear evenly. Also, my lips (which, if not handled with kid gloves, constantly battle with dryness) remain lusciously balanced, comfortable and hydrated...stunning color plus moisture? I'm all in!

Bottom Line: The Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy formula is phenomenal. The emollient and buildable color is saturated with pigment and, upon application, my lips stay moisturized for hours. I am not usually one for the color red, but the red lipstick tube is gorgeous...the way it stands out in my bag, like a crimson beacon of luxury, is undeniable. As I mentioned in my video, I am pleased that I selected #504 Flesh first, as it is a truly unique pink that instantly brightens up the face without getting fluorescent. I cannot wait to try other shades in this formula and have a sneaking suspicion that the bright red presence in my purse will continue to increase in the months ahead ; )
