Giorgio Armani Rose Platinum (16) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a very pale, light-medium silvery lavender with flecks of warmer gold micro-shimmer. The color is interesting, because it’s both cool and warm; when applied at full coverage, it is cooler, but if sheered out, the gold shimmer seems to come more to the forefront and gives it a warmer appearance. The texture was lightweight, smooth, blendable, and semi-opaque to opaque. I prefer using a separate brush with these than the applicator (also, more sanitary! and given each of these contain so much product, I avoid double-dipping to maximize the life of the product!). The color lasted for twelve hours before creasing slightly (marketed as 16-hour wear). MAC Look at the Eyes (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Buxom Silver Screen (P, $12.00) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #2 (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Elegant Friend (LE, $16.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Viseart Bijoux Royal #4 (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Cool Lilac (P, $24.00) is warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Harlot (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). YSL Taupe Drop (03) (P, $30.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes #2 (P) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
