The Gloss d’ Armani Pink 507 was an impulse purchase and, upon first use, I realized that it is definitely a close relative to the Beige 103 in terms of color and depth. It is a bit darker and sheerer and I love to wear it alone, over Beige 103 or over a very pale pink lipstick like LORAC’s Baby Doll or Sunday Riley’s Mona Lisa (swatched HERE) to add a little sheen and depth. The gloss texture is slightly tacky without being annoyingly sticky and possesses staying power on par with the Rouge d’Armani line. Both products are unscented and lack any sort of perceptible flavor which I find pleasing!

Bottom Line: Rouge d’Armani Beige 103 and Gloss d’Armani Pink 507 are lovely additions to a lip wardrobe that values natural pink/beige options. The formulas on both of these products are phenomenal, assuring hydration and smooth, lasting, color-fast application. They are excellent, “My lips but better” choices, however, if I had to select just one, I would choose the Rouge d’Armani in Beige 103 for its ultra-flattering creamy pink nude lip powers!
