Giorgio Armani #500 Maestro Fusion Blush

Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Blush ($52.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is supposed to be a “highly pigmented blush” that is liquid in form. The brand recommends using a single drop for application. They weren’t kidding, because this is insanely pigmented; a single drop may still be too much product. One bottle might last you a lifetime, and that really doesn’t feel like an exaggeration; I wish they had reduced the bottle size and dropped the price. There are three shades available, all are permanent, and I’ve only just tried the one featured here. Next time Giorgio Armani has a sale, I might pick up the other two shades–we’ll see! It’s a great product, but the price point will make you think twice, even if it contains more than enough product (it’s just so much that it seems like a waste, rather than a value).

Giorgio Armani #17, 18, 02 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows

Here are the other three shades of Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.053 / 0.061 oz.) that I have to review. The newest release is supposed to have a formula that’s soft, highly pigmented, and long-lasting formula. Next time Giorgio Armani has a friends and family sale, I’ll probably pick up a few more shades to test out, but for now, this wraps up our coverage on the new formula! :) The matte shades contain 0.053 oz., while the shimmery shades contain 0.061 oz. The matte shades have a very soft, silky texture that’s thinner and almost “dry” in a way, but it’s not truly dry (and not in a bad way), so there is good color payoff, blendability, but they don’t get everywhere. The shimmery shades are incredibly soft, buttery, and smooth–they’re so easy to use and apply. Across these three shades, they wore eight hours, but the navy blue shade was in worse shape (slightly creased) after nine hours, while the other two were just slightly faded.

Giorgio Armani #09, 16, 01 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.053 / 0.061 oz.) is the newest eyeshadow formula from the brand. It’s supposed to be a soft, highly pigmented, and long-lasting formula. The three below have good color payoff, soft, silky textures, and all wore well for eight hours, with the matte shade lasting just shy of eight hours before creasing slightly. The matte shades contain 0.053 oz., while the shimmery shades contain 0.061 oz.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow Launches

“Women have always been afraid of wearing bright colors because they don’t find them in the right texture. In this new line, Eyes to Kill Solo, every shade has been custom-created in a wearable texture. It’s the perfect accessory for the face.” — Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Makeup Artist

Inspired by nature’s elements, Eyes to Kill Solo offers a dense and deep “Macro Color” range of 20 shades. Each color story draws a specific vibration from a carefully studied texture. Subtle, silky, intense or sheer materials blend together to offer these single eyeshadows a distinctive luminosity and color personality. A made-to-measure approach thanks to a technological formulation that reveals all the beauty of the pigments. A palette of 20 intensely colored eyeshadows comes in three texture families: satin, vivid and matte.

The 10 satin shades, inspired by the catwalk, contain the exclusive “wet process” innovation which reduces the amount of solvents and white powder that are added to the formula. A unique method obtained by using pressure and top suction on the powder and the translucent solvents ensures the formula’s cohesion and allows a greater density of pearls to be used. The formula: a clear liquid texture is injected directly in the final pack and then dried. Once the solvent of the formula has evaporated, the texture becomes satiny soft, with enhanced color payoff. The color result is spectacular and perfectly pure, offering the most beautiful hues.

The 4 electric shades in bold tones are inspired by wild nature—dangerous and fascinating. This new formula is heightened by technology featuring transparent and multi-faceted kaleidoscopic pearls that continuously diffuse a bright and unfailingly luminous color. Through multidirectional refraction, the surface light gives these colors a different appearance—the eyes become hypnotic.

The 6 matte shades deliver long-lasting intensity with bold colors. The high concentration of pigments and the ultra-fine particles of the soft-touch powders allow an exceptionally high percentage of pure pigments to be used. The result is a long-hold matte intensity and ultra-saturated color that underlines the eyes’ radiance and depth.
