Giorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy CC Lipstick Preview & Swatches

Giorgio Armani makes some of my favorite lipsticks. The Rouge d'Armani and Rouge d'Armani Sheer formulas are rich yet hydrating, but the new Rouge Ecstasy is a completely new formula and sexy new packaging. The red lacquer cases with Armani's signature magnetic closure have slightly more weight than any of my Armani lipsticks, giving it a truly luxurious feel.

With Rouge Ecstasy, the Giorgio Armani laboratories push the boundaries of the exceptional even further with the first "CC" lipstick. CC stands for Color & Care, a new innovative hybrid product that marks the start of a new era in lipstick.
  • Care: Rouge Ecstasy offers the comfort and softness of a lip balm, leaving lips repaired and beautifully enhanced day after day.
  • Color: This velvety soft, everyday lipstick coats the lips in a saturated, ultra-luminous shades with impeccable hold. Application is simple, precise, and effective.
  • REVIEW: I discuss my experiences with the formula HERE!

First impressions: Lips must be freshly exfoliated for best lipstick results. Application is even and pigmentation of all the four I swatched is impressive on my mauve-tinged lips. Full coverage color in just a couple swipes! I like to swipe once across the top lip and another swipe across the bottom lip, then smooth out the color with a finger (or lip brush).

Swatches of Armani's signature shades Androgino Beige 100, Mineral Brown 200, Pop Coral 300, Four Hundred Red 400, and Eccentrico Pink 500 in store lighting are above while the same swatches taken outdoors two hours later are below. Coral 300 and Pink 500 were much brighter than I expected, so I will be going back to swatch all of the colors — particularly more natural coral and pink shades.

Rouge Ecstasy is available in 36 luminous shades, a broad palette of intense and vibrant colors to satisfy every desire. All of the Rouge Ecstasy shades are inspired by a particular memory or association for Mr. Armani, from Italy and Milan to the Red Carpet and Hollywood stars. Screen shots of stock images of all the shades from the Giorgio Armani Beauty website can be found below, but you can view my swatches of nearly every single color HERE!

  1. I just saw the ad for these in the Sept issue of Vogue today and got really excited because I'm a fan of GA lipsticks too. I immediately thought, "I bet Rae will have these on her blog or channel soon." Thanks for the info and swatches!

  2. These look really promising. I'm glad that they are really nicely pigmented and they look deliciously creamy as well ^^. Thanks for the swatches!

  3. Thanks for the swatches! I have been looking forward to these. So many new colors to choose from! :)

  5. Wow!! How will I pick just one or two! X

  6. Can't wait to check out that coral & pink!

  7. Thanks so much for the swatches and details on the shades! Do you know if these will be replacing one of the existing lipstick lines? Or will they be a third option alongside the sheers and the regular Rouge d'Armani? I hope that they'll keep the other formulas, because I love those. And I have a feeling I'll love these too...

  8. Wow... these look STUNNING. I am such a sucker for beautiful lipstick!
