Giorgio Armani No. 13 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 13 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with fine gold shimmer that gives it a soft, glowing sheen that doesn’t read too shimmery on the skin. It has a stronger yellow base, though it is a sheer coverage product, but it will noticeably tint the cheeks yellow on some skin tones (it does on mine for reference). The texture is lightweight and spread well, but it didn’t blend out as evenly as other shades in the range, which was disappointing, and I think it was because it dried down quickly. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me. L’Oreal Golden (P, $12.99) is warmer. NARS Jubilation (Left) (P, ) is more shimmery, darker. Dior Gold Shock (001) (LE, $80.00) is less shimmery. Becca Champagne Gold (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Giorgio Armani No. 04 (P, $62.00) is less shimmery. MAC Centre of Attention (Inner) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. Bobbi Brown Party (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery, cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette

Laura Mercier Art of Colour Eye & Cheek Palette ($79.00 for 0.83 oz.) includes eight eyeshadows, one blush, and a full-sized mascara and is a Nordstrom Anniversary Exclusive. It’s a disappointing palette; I think it looks and swatches better than it applies, and it’s a palette that should be used with an eyeshadow primer to minimize some of the issues that I experienced (like adhesion and longevity). Some of the eyeshadows ran a little drier, one was quite firm and difficult to use altogether, while the blush was horrendous. I would have also preferred to see them ditch the mascara and drop the price.

Giorgio Armani No. 11 Fluid Sheer

Giorgio Armani No. 11 Fluid Sheer ($62.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a light, subdued peachy-brown with warm undertones and fine gold micro-shimmer. It had sheer coverage, as described, that spreads and diffuses well on the skin. This is going to be better for fairer skin tones to be used alone as a highlighter or light blush/bronzer, while medium skin tones may find it works better for adding a slight warmth and dewiness all-over when mixed with base products (it doesn’t show up on me other than as a subtle, golden sheen when used on cheek bones). Alone, it wore for eight and a half hours before fading. MAC Margin (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented. MAC Summer Opal (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker.

MAC Stereo Rose (2014) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter. Becca Fig/Opal (P, $27.00) is more shimmery. Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented.
