More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #1

Giorgio Armani Blast of Blue (1) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a mix of violet-meets-indigo blue and medium-dark, metallic gold that creates a blend of a dusty, bluish purple with a gold-tinged sheen and sprinkling of gold shimmer.   When I applied it dry, the gold seemed to shimmer more, while when I applied it wet, the purple dominated.  As soon as this popped up on the website, I knew I had to order it–so glad I did!

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).

This shade is really interesting, because it ends up being an unexpected mix of the two colors--but you can still see flecks of each.
