Giorgio Armani Silver/Black Grey (16) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a darkened silvery gray with a bright, foil-like metallic sheen. It has an almost green-teal pull of color. It doesn’t look pure silver on me, which is what I was expecting. #16 worked well both wet and dry; there was hardly any difference between the two–the finish is slightly more metallic and smoothed out when used wet, but it’s hard to distinguish the difference on the eye. It’s not quite as smooth or as nicely textured as a few of the other shades, though.
Giorgio Armani Copper/Black Grey (15) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is slightly cool-toned bronzy brown with a hint of taupe in it. There’s a muted quality about the overall color that makes it a really wearable but rich brown. It works well whether it is used dry or wet–when used wet, it seems like the color has a warmer undertone. The finish is a reflective, metallic sheen with a bronzy-gold micro-shimmer.
The first shade is a matte white, which while stark against my skin tone, doesn’t feel or look chalky. Next, there is a matte, green-teal that is a little low on color payoff but is decent–be careful when you blend this shade, because it is easily sheered out. The third matte shade is a dark, navy blue with the same color payoff as the teal shade. It’s just a little sheer in places. Both of the latter shades work best patted on and lightly blended to avoid sheering out the color entirely. The texture of the three matte shades was soft, and they applied smoothly.
Giorgio Armani Airy Jade (10) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale, blue-tinged white with a bright, metallic sheen. Interestingly enough, this is a lot like #11–even the downsides of this particular shade were the same ones I experienced with #10–just blue-tinted instead of pink. Like #10, it doesn’t apply as evenly as other Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows have.
