wearing Giorgio Armani Flash Lacquer in Rouge 400 ($29), one of 36 shades in the new Flash Lacquer line available now
If I’d realized back then as an undergrad slogging through chemistry classes that science could also be used for things like building a better lip gloss…I probably would’ve paid closer attention in class and said things like, “Cyclohexane chair and boat shapes? I’M on that SH*T!”
Thank you, science, for taking us to the moon, creating super-sized motion picture popcorn kernels and for supplying us with better living through advanced lip gloss chemistry, like the chemistry behind Giorgio Armani Beauty’s new line of appeal Flash Lacquers ($29 each and available in 36 shades).

The brand new line of lip glosses flaunts scientific-sounding bells and whistles and a stratospherically shiny, smooth formula with attributes like…
An elastic shine formula that fills in lip lines for an very smooth surface
A polymer weave that continuously reshapes itself while on your lips
A low viscosity to keep the gloss surface perfectly smooth
All of this in the pursuit of one lofty goal: to fashion the highest reflection ever achieved in a lip gloss!

Well, it’s shiny — that’s for sure. and dramatic like a microphone drop.
Earlier today I was standing in front of a window, and I could see the color on my lips in the reflection as clearly as if I was standing in front of a mirror.
And the formula remains incredibly shiner as long as I don’t go rubbing or pressing my lips together. When I do, the shine swiftly dulls down to a minor sheen.
I’ve been testing two of the shades this week, shimmery Pink 526 and creamy red Rouge 400.

Fairly sheer and dainty Pink, a delicate nude with incredibly fine flecks of glitter, suits smokey eyes well, while rich red Rouge 400 is all about the pigment.
A few swipes of Rouge coats my lips in rich red, but the coverage isn’t completely opaque. I can still see my natural lip color just barely peeking through, which I like. I think it’s one of those things that fellow makeup nerds might also appreciate.

These absolutely remind me of Chanel Glossimers. They have a medium-weight consistency, non-sticky texture, a moisturizing, comfy formula that lasts 2-3 hours on my lips through snacks and drinks, and a very mellow vanilla flavor and scent.
If you frequently turn to YSL and Tom Ford counters to replenish your lip gloss stash, I think you just might also like these.
PRICE: $29 each
