I love a red lip — I think it's the easiest way to look polished and put together, so I have about 50 million different shades of red in my beauty arsenal.
But in these waning days of summer, sometimes a red lip feels too intense. A bright pink lip is just the right substitute, and this formula by Giorgio Armani is amazing. Seriously. It applies like a gloss, which made me nervous, but once it's on (and matted down — I like to pat with a tissue to remove some of the intensity) it does not move.
I also get endless compliments on the color when I wear it — almost enough to make me consider leaving my red. Almost.
