Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Overall & Round-up

These are all of the shades of Giorgio Armani’s Eye to Kill Intense Eyeshadows that I have.  There is one missing (14), which came out with 13, 15, and 16 for holiday in 2010–unfortunately, it was already unavailable when I started to review these shades earlier this year.  You can view all 15 in their full glory in the Swatch Gallery.

NARS Bali Eyeshadow

NARS Bali Eyeshadow ($23.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “neutral taupe.” That description is rather apt–it’s a dark, gray-tinted brown, which is what taupe is. It has a matte finish, and the color payoff is good overall. It applies smooth for the most part, and it’s not too cool or warm, so it’s a color that should work well on a variety of skin tones. Bali makes for a nice crease color as well as a subtle way to line the eye.

Urban Decay Gash Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Gash Eyeshadow ($17.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “deep brick red.” It’s a coppered red with a soft, frosted finish. The texture is dense and buttery, and it applies smoothly with excellent color payoff. There is subtle shimmer coupled with a muted metallic sheen. It’s a lovely example of why Urban Decay’s eyeshadows are popular.

Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow

Le Metier de Beaute Innocence Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a red-tinted copper with a part frost, part metallic sheen. It’s a finely-milled, smooth, blendable eyeshadow that applies as well dry as it does wet (the metallic sheen is emphasized when used wet). The color payoff is rich, intense, but it did read redder in the pan than when I swatched it. I imagine my yellower undertones have something to do it and would expect someone with pinker undertones to see this pull redder on them.
