Giorgio Armani Scarabeo Face & Eye Palette ($88.00 for 0.44 oz.) is a new and limited edition palette for fall. Overall, I found the pigmentation of this palette to vary from decent to good, but the texture was on the dry side (except for the blush, which had a very lovely consistency) and somewhat powdery. The colors didn’t blend as easily on the lid as other Giorgio Armani eyeshadows have for me (many of them blend effortlessly). If you have drier eyelids, I would definitely stay away from this palette. When I wore the three eyeshadows, they looked noticeably faded after seven hours, and they had almost disappeared by ten hours (no primer); with a primer, they lasted slightly longer until eight and a half hours before starting to fade. The blush lasted well for eight hours and showed slight signs of fading after nine hours. It’s not a terrible palette–it’s decent, but at $88, it should be much better than that.
