So here it is.. Shade 701. The grey gloss that’s got everyone wondering.
As you can see it looks completely different inside than outside.. I’ve taken pics in the sun and out of the sun. In the sun, 701 looks green, yet inside it’s definitely grey.Giorgio Armani Flash Gloss Shade 701
It’s got a myriad of multi-coloured shimmer particles so fine that they’re not obvious at all.Giorgio Armani Flash Gloss Shade 701

So how does 701 look on the lip? Well, it’s like a vampish glossy stain.. definitely grey but sheer enough that your natural lip colour comes through to counteract any draining effect. The shimmer is also well shot with pink to uplift it. It’s positively, absolutely sexy and I think any age group can get away with this either as a top-coat, or as I’m wearing it, straight onto the lip.
I’m thinking that 701 is going into the beauty hall of fame. It’s £23.50 and already low stock HERE. I know £23.50 is a LOT for a gloss, but this is one of the few I’d probably pay double for, greatly helped by the fact that it doesn’t disappear quickly as glosses can.

You would never thought grey would be nice but it looks fab to me!
Not convinced. It looks like something dredged up from the bottom of a pond. I doubt if even Morticia Adams would wear it.
Not in the habit of saying things are amazing if they aren’t. It is a certain look, granted, but nothing pondy about it and you are way off the mark with Morticia.
Could you not post a photo instead of describing how it looks on lips? The arm swatches aren’t as helpful.
Well, it’s not compulsory to read it.
No need to get defensive, was just commenting on how you could make the post more useful to readers.
And if you’d read my blog at all, you will notice that it is unusual in the fact that I don’t post any selfies. But thanks, I’ll take your tips on board.
this would be incredible over embrace me or candy yum yum!
I’ve been wearing this for two weeks. Every day. It is beautiful. I’ll be purchasing a back-up of this one.
