Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #5 Copper Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as it’s named: “copper.” It’s a muted copper with a gold sheen. The only shade I could think of that was similar was tokidoki Unicorno, which is more like an orange-gold. theBalm Mischievous Marissa is a bit like it, but it is an eyeshadow.  It delivers mostly opaque color coverage in a single pass, which is always a noteworthy feat for an eyeliner.  There’s a metallic sheen, but it’s not too reflective.

Giorgio Armani describes the formula as waterproof/water-resistant (they use both terms, even though they mean different things), soft, creamy, and intense.  The first thing you notice when you use it is how utterly soft and malleable the pencil tip is.  It’s so, so soft that it glides across the lash line with ease–no tugging or skipping.  Despite the creaminess of the formula, it doesn’t smudge throughout the day.  This shade wore better than #4 for me, actually, because it looked 95% as good after eight hours as it did when I first applied it.  I splashed my eye with water and lightly pressed, and I didn’t find that the eyeliner was disturbed, so it should make it through intact if your eyes water a bit.

If you find that beige and champagne eyeliners don't look quite right, you may try this soft copper to wake up tired eyes. Or maybe as a new way to do so even if you do like a good champagne eyeliner! It's not dark like most copper eyeliners, which is what makes it more unique.

    Oh that is soo pretty! Will have to take a pass though-I’ve bought 5 eyeliners within the last two weeks :-O

    I couldn’t agree more with your review. I snapped this up from Nordstrom online and am in love with it. So much so, I’m considering buying a backup before it goes away. It really livens up my hazel eyes when I wear it on my lower lashline. Liners usually smudge on my lower lashline because I have allergies and my eyes either water or I rub them. GA’s Copper doesn’t budge! (To be fair Chanel’s waterproof liner is the only one besides the Giorgio Armani Waterproof that I’ve found don’t smudge on me.)

    Do you think this would be ok on the waterline? Love the color and being limited edition, I may have to pick it up. Thanks, Christine!

    I just bought this today! Love the rose-gold color, it’s definitely unique.

  8. Oh my goodness, this is such a gorgeous copper! It looks like a much softer color than a lot of coppery eyeliners. I want this so badly!

    Can you use this on your waterline?

    It tends to look more nude-peach on me than coppery (NC15). It’s great as an inner eye highlight b/c it looks like a brighter nude on me.
