Armani Beauty has a new range of lippies that promises an ultimate shine finish
Known as Ecstacy Mirror, the lip lacquer collection comes in 10 new shades ($57 each) and is somewhat of a hybrid: each stick features an intense, vibrant colour payoff comparable to that any pigmented lippie but boasts a finish of a high-shine, reflective gloss. To achieve such an effect, ethylcellulose is infused in the formulation to give puckers a light-reflecting film for a glassy finish. Additionally, the soft, pointed applicator allows for precision and ease of use. The new series is now available on www.tangs.com, www.isetan.com.sg and through the brand’s phone delivery service (tel: 8940-1372).
