They say if you stop looking for love, it’ll come when you least expect it. The adage holds true in beauty, too: We gave up on our long, unsuccessful quest for the perfect nude lipstick— and then a makeup artist painted Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in 103 on our pout. It was love at first swipe. The medium-coverage, moisturizing bullet is the perfect balance between beige and rose: It’s not so neutral that we look washed out, yet it’s a far cry from bubblegum pink. The luxurious, creamy texture blends seamlessly into our natural lip color, so we don’t need a mirror to apply. And the sleek case has a fun magnetic closure, making us even more inclined to whip it out.
