Giorgio Armani Obsidian & Senso Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Obsidian (01) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a deepened black with cool undertones and multi-colored fine shimmer that creates a satin finish. It was semi-opaque and was buildable to opaque color if desired with two layers. The consistency was thin, lightweight, blendable, and easily spread on the skin. It wore well for fourteen hours before creasing slightly. LORAC Caviar (LE)is warmer. MAC A Waft of Grey #4 (P, $21.00) is lighter. Anna Sui Diamond Blue (LE) is lighter. Illamasqua Zeitgeist (P, $25.50) is less shimmery. bareMinerals Penthouse (LE) is less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

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.

ColourPop Truth, Smash, Desert, 3, Doe-a-Deer Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Truth Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutral light beige.” It’s a light beige with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff with a soft, blendable consistency that worked well on the lid and didn’t sheer out (though it was easy to diffuse the edges) too readily. It started to crease on me slightly after nine hours. I also really like this one (personally) on my brow bone, so it’s been a new go-to for me when I test out other ColourPop shades, as when you sheer it out (on purpose), it gives a subtle sheen.

ColourPop Amaze, So Quiche, Hustle, Glitterati Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Amaze Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “metallic rose gold with [glitter].” It’s a slightly muted, medium coppery brown with a warm, golden metallic finish and a smattering of micro-glitter. It’s very pigmented, but the texture is a little chunkier applied to the lid. This was a shade that seemed to apply better with a flat synthetic brush or fingertips to minimize texture issues on the lid. Once on, the color lasted for ten hours without fading or creasing, but there was some fall out. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ColourPop Halo, Game Face, Drift, Bae Super Shock Shadows

ColourPop Halo Super Shock Shadow ($5.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “golden champagne dusted with soft gold glitter [with a satin finish].” It’s a light-medium, yellowed beige with gold glitter over a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but it was a shade that needed two layers for full opacity. On me, it wore well for nine and a half hours without creasing or fading, but there was a smidgen of fall out.
It is part of the Not a Box of Chocolates set. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
