Giorgio Armani Organica Eyeshadow Palette

Giorgio Armani Organica Eyeshadow Palette ($88.00 for 0.177 oz.) is a set of two shades, so more of a duo than a palette. It contains almost the equivalent of four, average-sized full-sized eyeshadows. I wish I could figure out why Giorgio Armani’s compacts are so pricey, because their single eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes, etc. are all in line with other designer brands (Chanel, Dior, and so on), but their eyeshadow palettes are totally out of step price-wise.

Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014

Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014
Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014

“Fade to Grey”, the new Giorgio Armani Beauty look for eyes, lips and nails, is subtle makeup for an elegant autumn. The shades come in soft mineral tones with a slight shimmer for a sheer, weightless effect. “Fade to Grey” offers women subtle and elusive beauty.

Fade to Grey Eyeshadow Palette ($88.00) (Limited Edition)

A gorgeous color duo featuring a shimmery black and delicate golden nude to structure and widen the eyes. The gliding cream texture, light like an airy veil, is easy to apply and can be adjusted to customize the makeup look. The result is either discreet and muted or more intense, but ever sheer and luminous with lasting hold. Its lightweight formula is derived from “micro pearl” technology. The shadow is cold cast in a base with a texture between gel and powder, and imprinted with a pattern before being pressed. Micronized pearl and pigment particles remain intact down to the bottom of the pan.

5 Shades of Warm Taupe Eyeshadow

theBalm #19 Makeup Geek Moondust Giorgio Armani #09 Edward Bess Dusk

Since we looked at pewter last week, I thought that we should focus on taupe this week, because it’s an equally complex and interesting color.  I love how it can run warm and cool-toned (or even nearly neutral), so it’s a very versatile shade to work with.  Check back tomorrow for my top five picks on cool taupes as well! :)  I’d love to hear about your personal favorites in the commments–always looking for suggestions!

  1. MAC Tailor Grey — a subtly warm-toned, gray-taupe in cream form
  2. theBalm #19 — a light-medium, golden taupe
  3. Makeup Geek Moondust — a dark, bronzy taupe
  4. Giorgio Armani #09 — a brightened, medium-dark golden taupe
  5. Edward Bess Dusk — a deepened, warm taupe
