Isn't she beautiful ? I pretty much gasped when I spotted this beauty on Getting Cheeky's Blog (Check out her review here) and like any normal person I added it to my ever growing list of "LIPSTICKS I MUST OWN OR MY LIFE WILL BE INCOMPLETE ".
In the tube Plum 609 is a plum red with brown undertones and swatched it is a semi opaque wash of glossy color . I found it quite unique in the endless sea of vampy lip colors that seem to have taken over the market and what sets it truly apart is the formula . The Rouge d' Armani's are quite underrated in the beauty community but it is an absolutely flawless formula . The lipsticks are opaque without being cakey , glossy without being slippery, long wearing without being drying and the range has a quite a large shade selection . Think mac luster finish but with the opacity of an amplified cream finish .
Its so modern and sophisticated on the lips right? There is a fine line between a vampy lip and a goth inspired lip . I feel GA 609 is right in the middle of the two genres . On the lips it is quite glossy and hydrating . I was able to wear it for four hours without reapplying and I am happy to report it did not feather or bleed into my lip lines . Jessica mentioned that she found it hard to apply evenly and I do agree with her . I found that you almost have to layer this on .So, I started it a thin layer all over my lips and gently pat the color on for a more full on even effect .
Overall, I have never been disappointed with a Rouge d Armani purchase and 609 is no exception . The formula is exceptional and the color is so on trend for this season . So, what are you waiting for ?
