Giorgio Armani Matte Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a new finish within the Eye Tint family, which is a liquid eyeshadow formula that feels and performs like a cream but dries down to a powder-like eyeshadow within 10-15 seconds. The previously released shades in the Eye Tint formula have all had some shimmer (from pearl to glitter), and on the whole, I have quite liked them as they are fairly pigmented, long-wearing, and most are easy to use. I found the texture of the Matte shades to be similar to past shades, but I personally felt like the application was more challenging, especially with shades deeper than my natural skin tone. I can, however, see these working well as a good all-over shade and can even work as a flesh-toned base (if one of the six shades suits yours). I liked using flat, synthetic brushes over fingertips for anything that used more than one at a time, and I found the brush to apply the colors more evenly overall. What I like about the Eye Tint formula–that was present in the Matte shades–is that you can still diffuse the edges somewhat while it is dry, as it is more powder-like with better hold than a traditional powder product.

Giorgio Armani Taupe Smoke (19) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a dirty, olive-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was more watery, though it didn’t take too long to dry down, so the resulting payoff was semi-sheer. It is somewhat buildable, but it is hard to keep the color even on the skin. It wore well for fourteen hours on me (out of the 16 the brand markets it as wearing for). LORAC Vintage (LE, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Oak (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Sephora + Pantone Universe Cocoa Brown (LE, ) is more shimmery (90% similar). Becca Ombre Nudes #4 (P, ) is darker (90% similar). MAC Sandstone (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar).

Giorgio Armani Leather Smoke (20) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a very deep, dark brown with subtle, warm, reddish undertones and a mostly matte finish. The texture wasn’t too watery or too thin, so it was easier to get nearly full opacity out of the color. It wasn’t as foolproof as the shimmery Eye Tints, as the color tended to apply unevenly more often than not. I was able to wear this for a good fourteen hours before it started to crease faintly. Too Faced Chocolate Cake (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Bark (P, $28.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Wind Down Brown (LE, ) is darker, cooler (95% similar).

Giorgio Armani Fur Smoke (21) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a dark brown with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. This one seemed to have the tiniest bit of satin shimmer to it, and I think that addition made it easier to work with and apply to the skin without it becoming uneven or patchy as it dried down. It had a thin consistency, but it didn’t sheer out too easily when applied. On me, it wore well for fourteen hours. Laura Mercier Ganache (LE, $23.00) is darker (95% similar). Anastasia Fudge (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Codes Elegants #4 (P, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Hot Chocolate (P, $12.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Undercover (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Bronze Dunes #4 (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). Laura Mercier Coffee Ground (P, $23.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar).

Kat Von D Sytry (P, ) is darker, more muted (85% similar). Gucci Beauty Autumn Fire #4 (P, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Smashbox Darkhorse (P, ) is cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Fairfax (LE, $5.00) is darker, more muted, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Giorgio Armani Spice Smoke (22) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy-brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff, which wasn’t too buildable, but it could be diffused as it was drying down without it becoming patchy or uneven, so it was a little easier to work with than some of the other darker shades in the range. This shade lasted for 14 hours on me before creasing slightly. Viseart Petit Pro #3 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Coloured Raine Moments (P, $6.99) is lighter (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty About Last Night No. 20 (LE, ) is darker, cooler (90% similar). LORAC Goji (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). bareMinerals Kismet (P, ) is darker, more muted (90% similar).

Ciate Queen Bee (LE, ) is cooler (90% similar). theBalm #13 (P, $6.50) is cooler (90% similar). Anastasia Red Ochre (P, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M822 Plum (P, $21.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Guerlain Turandot #3 (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Leader (P, ) is darker (80% similar). Tarte Siren (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (80% similar). Anastasia Hot Chocolate (P, $12.00) is darker (80% similar). Sleek MakeUP Propose in Prague (LE, $9.99) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

Giorgio Armani Camel Smoke (23) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium brown with warm, caramel undertones and a matte finish. This was the easiest shade to use, as it was the most opaque and least thin, so it spread better without sheering out and didn’t get patchy. On me, the color lasted for 14 hours before I noticed some creasing occurring. Lancome Voyage (P, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). Inglot #337 (P, $6.00) is warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Lula (LE, $12.00) is cooler (90% similar). NARS Sophia (P, $25.00) is darker (90% similar). Kat Von D Succubus (P, ) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $16.00) is darker (90% similar). LORAC Lt. Brown (P, $19.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Cornelious (P, $5.00) is lighter (85% similar).

Giorgio Armani Nude Smoke (24) Matte Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that wasn’t too watery in its liquid form, and it dries down fast enough that it didn’t settle into lines while there is still time to blend. On me, the color wore well for fourteen hours before creasing. Urban Decay Commando (P, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Tarte Myth (P, ) is lighter (95% similar). bareMinerals Come True (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). Guerlain Hey Nude (04) (P, $34.00) is warmer (90% similar).
