The Lip Maestro formula is described by Armani as a new generation of lip color that combines the velvet finish of a matte lipstick with the intensity and flawless result of a lip lacquer. I found the formula pretty interesting and I definitely want to try these lippies! The Lip Maestro lacquers feel pretty creamy and have excellent pigmentation. I noticed full opacity in just one swipe while swatching! Not to mention the bright red packaging is cute yet luxurious!
