Giorgio Armani #10 Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Shimmer Palette
Giorgio Armani #10 Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Shimmer Palette

Giorgio Armani #10 Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Shimmer Palette ($59.00 for 0.212 oz.) is a warm-toned palette that features four shades of shimmery eyeshadows. The brand describes them as “iridescent, eye-catching colors” that are “crease-proof.”

#10 #1 is a light-medium beige with copper and champagne shimmer. It has subtle warm undertones and a pearly finish. Jasmine Sultana is less warm-toned. Cinderella Midnight Hour is lighter. L’Oreal Blinged & Brilliant is more metallic, slightly more beige. Chanel Eclosion #3 is browner. It has good color payoff, and the texture is soft and silky smooth.

#10 #2 is a warm-toned, light-medium gold with a frosted finish. Chanel Pearl River #2 is lighter. Tarte Bellini is somewhat lighter. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #1 is a few shades lighter, less orange-y. Dior Couture Gold #2 is more metallic. It had good pigmentation and had a finely-milled texture.

#10 #3 is a softened, copper-shimmered orange with brow undertones and a frosted finish. Guerlain Turandot #1 is a touch lighter. Milani Gold Dust is very similar. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 #3 is more metallic. The color payoff was good, but the texture was a little powdery, even though it felt very soft.

#10 #4 is a medium-dark, warm-toned brown with a soft golden pearl.  Flower Beauty Foxy Browns #2 is somewhat warmer. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sparkle ‘Til Morning #7 is more golden. MAC Mulch has a redder tone. Urban Decay Deeper is darker. It had so-so color payoff, which did appear to have better pigment when I applied it to the lid, but it was powdery as it was so, so soft.

This is a palette that performs better applied to the lid than it seems like it would when just swatched.  The texture is very soft across the board, and as a result, two of the shades seemed a little powdery, but on the lid, there was no powderiness, excess product, or chalkiness.  Everything looked soft, smooth, and almost as if it had melted to the lid.  Those soft textures made blending effortless, and the shades blended into each other so easily.  The palette coordinates well, and with the warmer toned shades, would tend to flatter warmer complexions the most (but there’s no reason cooler complexions who normally like golds and coppers on themselves should avoid it).  When I wore the palette, all four shades lasted nine hours without creasing or fading (no primer), which was impressive.

    Looks rather dupe-able, but I quite like the way this looks. But for $59… I don’t know. Maybe.

  2. Oh gorgeous! I think this might be wishlist material…

  3. These are definitely the sort of colors I go for on an everyday basis! Thanks, Christine!

  4. This is definitely on my most wanted list right now. Thanks for the review–it looks gorgeous on you!!!

  5. Janelle

    with it being an everyday color it is something I want. I hope my million of The Balm palettes I just ordered will be able to create a similar look!

    The look is that of a shimmering summer goddess, but too warm for my skintone. Gorgeous on you, as usual.

  7. XO

    Pretty! But dupable – Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells comes to mind.

  8. Virginia

    Which is the eyeliner used in this look? Love it! I’m actually dreaming about bareminerals 5am for ages, but love this one too.

    I take it they’re done with the eyes to kill intense line?

  10. I think the shades are stunning, although of course not the most unique. I love them though and would get tons of use from them for sure

    I saw this and bought it two weeks ago and I love it but it doesn’t last on my lids, even with primer.

  12. Karen

    It is kind of difficult to distinguish the shadows when you did the eyelook.
    Can you share it, please? :D
