Giorgio Armani Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a new finish within the Eye Tint family, which is a liquid eyeshadow formula that feels and performs like a cream but dries down to a powder-like eyeshadow within 10-15 seconds. The previously released shades in the Eye Tint formula have all had some shimmer (from pearl to glitter), and on the whole, I have quite liked them as they are fairly pigmented, long-wearing, and most are easy to use. I found the texture of the Matte shades to be similar to past shades, but I personally felt like the application was more challenging, especially with shades deeper than my natural skin tone. I can, however, see these working well as a good all-over shade and can even work as a flesh-toned base (if one of the six shades suits yours). I liked using flat, synthetic brushes over fingertips for anything that used more than one at a time, and I found the brush to apply the colors more evenly overall. What I like about the Eye Tint formula–that was present in the Matte shades–is that you can still diffuse the edges somewhat while it is dry, as it is more powder-like with better hold than a traditional powder product.
