Giorgio Armani Jade, Shadow, Minuit Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a deepened navy blue with a satin finish. I would almost describe it as a pearl finish, but it doesn’t have that pearly sheen, yet it has a bit more shimmer than your traditional satin finish has. It was nicely pigmented with a thin, lightweight consistency that spread well and blended easily. On me, the color wore well for almost fourteen hours (out of the 16-hours promised), which was quite long, and I didn’t have any issues with fall out with this one (not surprising, given it isn’t sparkly).
Colour Pop Etiquette (P, $5.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Estrella (LE) is lighter. LORAC Navy #6 (LE) is more shimmery. Chanel Metamorphose (44) #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Shop & Drop (LE, $15.00) is darker. Le Metier de Beaute Midnight Sky (P, $30.00) is darker. bareMinerals Climax (P) is a touch lighter. Bobbi Brown Blue Onyx (LE) is darker.

Giorgio Armani Onyx, Green Iron, Emeraude Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a “fluid eyeshadow” that is supposed to be a long-wearing (“16-hour staying power)’ with “deep and intense color.” When they work, they work well, but there is a definite learning curve with the formula. I noticed that sometimes when I pulled the doe-foot applicator out of the tube for a few shades, the consistency was thinner and more watery, and other times, it was almost clumpy with product, though it never felt genuinely thick. If it is more watery than not, it can apply somewhat sheer, but if it is normal (because a more watery pull was more infrequent), it applied beautifully with rich, opaque color coverage (which was what happened most of the time with most shades). It is imperative to spread out the product with a smooth, even layer, or else it can add a textured (read: wrinkled, scaly, etc.) look to the lid.

Giorgio Armani Beauty radically changes the rules of eye make-up with Eye Tint, the new fluid eye shadow with vibrant and playful colors that can be layered endlessly. Eye Tint’s deep and intense color invigorates the eyes with captivating and enticing strength and triggers an instant metamorphosis. The eyes become more luminous and more expressive. Eye Tint customizes any makeup look, with a touch of sophisticated glamour or a translucent, natural effect. Giorgio Armani Beauty’s makeup philosophy is based on the belief that “you cannot have the right color without the right texture.” Its dual-transformation texture goes from liquid to solid in an instant, leaving an extremely thin, even layer. With no sticky feel or residue, Eye Tint remains consistently flawless. The texture adheres perfectly to the shape of the eyelid and does not budge. Its pure and intense color guarantees 16-hour staying power. Eye Tint adjusts its colors to be used as a liner or to create a beautiful smoky eye. The light texture can easily be spread over eyelids for a fresh, barely-there feel. Eye Tint is an innovative makeup that combines the purity of a powder, the staying power of an ink and the feel of a cream.

Giorgio Armani #08, 14, 15 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows

Giorgio Armani #08 Gun Metal Eyes to Kill Solo ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a dark taupe brown with cool undertones and a satin finish. It looked a lot more shimmery in the pan than it did when it swatched! The consistency was silky but powdery, so it didn’t apply as evenly or with as much intensity as desired. I don’t notice the shortcomings as much when I applied it into the crease with a fluffier brush, but for lid application, it is more noticeable. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear. Anastasia Deep Brown (LE) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty The Parisienne #6 (LE) is more shimmery. MAC Persuade (LE, $15.00) is lighter. Urban Decay Defy (LE, $18.00) is grayer. Burberry Graphite (No. 28) (P, $29.00) is darker, grayer. Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick #4 (P) is warmer. Make Up For Ever M620 Gray Brown (P, $21.00) is similar. bareMinerals Tide Pool (LE) is lighter. Too Faced Dolly (P, $16.00) is similar. Ulta Mink (P, $10.00) is similar. Chanel Mystere #4 (LE) is similar. MAC Najm el Lail (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Double Feature #3 #2 (LE, $15.00) is similar. MAC Dance in the Dark (LE, $15.00) is warmer. MAC Legendary Black (DC, $21.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

New! Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro for September 2014

Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro
Giorgio Armani Eye & Brow Maestro

EYE & BROW MAESTRO is the first Giorgio Armani Beauty eye shadow cream. Inspired by backstage makeup and developed using cutting-edge technology, Eye & Brow Maestro can be used as an eye liner, eyeshadow or eyebrow pencil. It can even sculpt the face or be used to color the hair line.

A new way of seeing makeup, Eye & Brow Maestro is an innovative, multi-use product that changes the rules of makeup. Linda Cantello and Giorgio Armani Beauty laboratories drew their inspiration from hairdressers and colorists. Colored glass and mica pearls, used as pigments, and translucent pearlizers are modeled after the glossy shine and translucency from hair coloring.

“It’s the colors and texture that make this genuinely multi-usage product special. All shades can be used on eyebrows, hair, and Eye &Brow Maestro shade 5 as contouring,” explains Linda Cantello.

The results are amazing and incredibly innovative. There are nine shades that look like something out of a hair salon – subtle, slightly iridescent tones of blond, dark blond, light brown, brown and even auburn. A gorgeous gold shade was also added for evening sophistication.

At last, women have an all-in-one makeup product that amplifies the natural beauty of their eyelids and their eyebrows, is easy to work with and has real staying power with a waterproof formula lasting 20 hours. Eye & Brow Maestro reinforces the natural beauty of the eyes in one gesture. Expression is enhanced, emotion is stronger and presence is magnified.

Eye & Brow Maestro ($34.00) (New, Permanent)

  • Black (01)
  • Dark Brown (02)
  • Red (03)
  • Medium Brown (04)
  • Light Brown (05)
  • Medium Blonde (06)
  • Light Blonde (07)
  • Grey (08)
  • Gold (09)

Eye & Brow Maestro Brush ($32.00) (New, Permanent)

Giorgio Armani Beauty laboratories have designed the ideal partner for Eye & Brow Maestro: an original makeup accessory inspired by professional application techniques. One end features an eyebrow brush to shape the eyebrows. The other is a flat angled brush used for precise makeup application along the lash line or on the eyelid for buildable coverage. Anyone can work like a makeup artist and create a personalized makeup.
