Well, we all know just how much of a lover I am of Armani Beauty, so of course I had to head to the lovely Kate in Selfridges Manchester to check out their new launches in August! I was supposed to see these new collections in July but unfortunately due to issues higher up than the Armani counter in Manchester, the release was delayed but boy am I glad these Rouge d'Armani Matte lipsticks were launched at the end of August cause they are perfect for Autumn/Winter 2018!

Of course my  journey to Manchester had to start with a Pumpkin Spiced Latte because if I'm getting early access you know that I'm heading to the nearest Starbucks to get it (fyi if you didn't know already if you pick up a Starbucks card which is like a points card that you can pay with and you get all sorts of free perks including early access to new drink releases!), so I arrived bare-faced but highly caffeinated and ready to dive into all the new product launches.

When I arrived Kate had gone all out and treated me to pastries, strawberries and some fizzy drinks, there's really no better way to spend the morning than to try out new makeup with some delicious treats. To best introduce the new launches, Kate decided to do a full face of Armani makeup using a bunch of the new products that launched in August include the new Rouge d'Armani Matte lipsticks.

A full face of Armani makeup isn't complete without starting with a base of Armani Prima skincare. For my base makeup, we decided to go for the lightweight, dewy finish using the Face Fabric foundation and the My Armani To Go Essence In Foundation Tone-Up Cushion foundation, the new addition to the cushion foundation range is designed to be skincare and foundation in one and helps to leave your skin glowing and comfortable all day. Of course, to compliment the natural glowing skin, we just had to go with the Neo Nude blush and highlight

Now it'd be rude not to try out the new eye products that Armani has just released, for the base we used the Eyes To Kill Stellar eyeshadow which has a wonderful texture that is brand new to Armani, the eyeshadows have got a bouncy texture that transforms into pigmented, light powder when applied to the lid. We also used the Eyes To Kill Quattro palette to create a neutral smokey eye with a hint of khaki that complimented the green in my eyes.

My all-time favourite launch at the minute for Armani is their Rouge d'Armani Matte lipsticks, these matte lipsticks are a first for Armani and boy have they been greatly missed. The new matte lipsticks offer amazing intense colour that doesn't compromise on comfort, in other words, you get amazing colour without having your lips dried out to a bone. At the minute Armani has released 15 new shades, including the iconic shade 400 the perfect red for everyone but they have got plenty of room to launch even more colours and I would love for them to have every one of their satin lipsticks in the matte formula.

With the new #mypartnerincrime lipsticks, Armani has re-invigorated the matte lipstick game. Each lipstick has a high concentration of pigments which gives you even, intense coverage in one swipe with ester oils and hydrogenated Jojoba oils to give you such a smooth application. Each lipstick is also packed full of light diffusing gel which also helps to ensure the lipstick has a rich matte finish whilst allowing your lips to look smooth and supple. I can't wait to give this lipstick a true autumn/winter test, my test for lipsticks is how they hold up and what condition my lips are left in in the cold Liverpool weather. After a full day of wearing in August (without lip liner, BIG risk for a deep red lipstick!) I was so impressed with how it looked at the end of the day, after several drinks and meals it wore down slightly to a gorgeous stain and hadn't smudged all over the place. The only thing to remember is that whilst it's a matte lipstick, it's not a liquid lipstick so it can transfer onto whatever you are eating or drinking.

What's your favourite product to launch from Armani?

Speak to you next time!
