More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #3

Giorgio Armani Purpura (3) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a metallic, silver-threaded plum purple with multi-colored shimmer that is dominated by indigo, violet, and gold flecks.  It was sheerer when I used it dry and really intense when applied wet.

The texture of these feels almost like a cream eyeshadow, but it has the thinness of a powder eyeshadow while retaining some of the blendability of the hybrid cream-powder eyeshadow.  It also works well with other eyeshadow (see this look using #6).  It’s almost like a really dense loose powder that’s been pressed down, because if you dig at it, it loosens.

Though pricey, each shade comes with 0.14 oz. worth of product, which is a hefty amount (normal eyeshadow averages around 0.05 oz., no matter the price).  The only aspect I didn’t love was the little black stopper inside the jar (once you unscrew the black lid), because my longer fingers felt awkward grabbing it (so I just unscrew it upside down so it falls into the cap).

Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “watery pale blue.”  It’s really a soft, pale blue with a smidgen of green that looks squishy on.  From everything I’ve read on this polish, it is a sheer shade, so it’s not expected to be opaque nor designed to be worn that way.  I wore two coats in the swatches, and I think it works best with two.  It’s not streaky like some pastels, but it will start to look uneven if you don’t let each coat dry before the next and go to three or four coats.  I think a ridge filler would be helpful here, too, to really get a flawless, sheer look.

I didn’t find this formula to be as flawless as Rescue Beauty Lounge’s other shades; it’s just not as easy to apply.  I felt like you do need to work with it and be patient, because the way it overlaps can make the color look uneven or patchy if you are not careful.  I also had some color pull up from the base, because the first coat had not dried enough.  The drying time was a little long.  I typically get a full week of wear with RBL’s formula.

I think the color is most important – sometimes high-end brands do seem to put out interesting takes on color.  I don’t get better or longer wear out of a high-end polish over something cheaper.  Rescue Beauty Lounge and Butter London have really exceptional formulas.
