Giorgio Armani Flannel, Cold Copper, Rose Ashes, Gold Ashes Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Eye Tints ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) are a really fun, interesting formula that’s one of the better liquid-to-powder eyeshadow formulas I’ve tried. They can be worn together as a more blended, complex look (see this post), opaque, all-over shade, or sheerer wash of color. The formula starts of as a thinner liquid with an almost cool feeling against the skin, and once it dries down, it transforms into a powder product; it remains blendable even after it “dries” for about a minute, because it really just looks, feels, and acts like a powder eyeshadow. If you press your fingertip to the dried down results, a bit of color will transfer to your fingertip (not all of it, and it is in line with the same effect as accidentally touching your fingertip to your eye with powder eyeshadow). It feels weightless, comfortable, and doesn’t “shrink” on the lid. Giorgio Armani markets these as having 16-hour wear, which isn’t quite what I get, but the formula wears twelve to fourteen hours on me, which is longer than most powder eyeshadows for me.

Giorgio Armani #10, #19, #23 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows

Giorgio Armani #10 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a golden beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen with larger dark champagne sparkle. The texture was soft, but it was dry, which made it apply less smoothly. It was also more prone to sheering out when blended on the skin. The eyeshadow wore well for seven hours on me before fading. Colour Pop XO (P, $5.00) is a cream product. LORAC Uninhibited (P) is lighter. Dior Golden Shock #5 (LE) is similar. MAC Sweet Sovereign (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. Too Faced Nutmeg (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tarte Golden Locket (LE) is yellower. MAC Until Dawn #2 (LE, $21.00) is yellower. Sleek MakeUP Meet in Madrid (LE, $9.99) is darker. Giorgio Armani #10 #2 (P) is less sparkly. MAC Rich Glance (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. Dior Night Golds #5 (LE) is similar. Dior Fairy Golds #2 (LE) is more sparkly. bareMinerals Kudos (LE) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Giorgio Armani Runway Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

Giorgio Armani Runway Spring/Summer 2015
Giorgio Armani Runway Spring/Summer 2015

Inspired directly by the designs for the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2015 show, Linda Cantello, International Make-Up Artist for Giorgio Armani, developed a backstage beauty look. The Armani Runway Lab has a unique tool specifically designed to aid Linda in creating make-up looks backstage. Now these custom shades are offered to the public for the first time, through a collection that replicates the make-up look of Giorgio Armani SS15 fashion show.

The Armani Runway make-up collection features a range of pigments and textures used by Linda Cantello to create customized beauty looks and new colors while backstage. The concept will launch at the same time as the Spring/Summer 2015 Giorgio Armani fashion collection, at a selection of exclusive points of sale. Now everyone can enjoy and experience the make-up look of a Giorgio Armani show.

Armani Runway Palette ($125.00) (Limited Edition)

The precious black case – a fashion accessory in itself – is adorned with a moiré beige pattern that suggests wind-blown ripples in sand, and contains the face and eye make-up. There is a translucent powder, soft to the touch, which creates an even, matte complexion and enhanced facial contours. This precious powder containing lustrous, fine mica-based pearl leaves a satiny finish embellished with elegant pink and gold accents. A second pearl pigment, rich in borosilicate, brightens the skin, creating the impression of a shimmering champagne hue. Nestled beneath the powder are a trio of eye shadows in delicate, luminous shades of taupe, pink/golden beige and silver. These fine-textured eye shadows enhance the eyes all day, or all night.

Rouge d’Armani Sheer Lpistick ($40.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Runway Iridescent pink and gold

Nail Lacquer ($30.00) (Limited Edition)

  • Runway Shimmery brown
