5 Shades of Aqua Eyeshadow

It’s hard to find a really awesome aqua eyeshadow, because aqua tends to be a lighter color–almost pastel–that they can be sheer and/or chalky (or just powdery). Sometimes they lean blue, other times they lean green.  I wouldn’t call this the best of aqua, because there are many more aqua shades I’ve swatched!

What’s your favorite aqua-hued eyeshadow?

Giorgio Armani Airy Jade (10) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

Giorgio Armani Airy Jade (10) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow

Giorgio Armani Airy Jade (10) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale, blue-tinged white with a bright, metallic sheen. Interestingly enough, this is a lot like #11–even the downsides of this particular shade were the same ones I experienced with #10–just blue-tinted instead of pink. Like #10, it doesn’t apply as evenly as other Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows have.

The texture of the Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows is interesting; it’s a really compacted loose powder, but it’s so finely milled that it almost feels like a hybrid cream-powder. Each pot contains 0.14 oz. worth of product, which is a good amount, given that most pressed eyeshadows average around 0.05 oz. I have worn around half of the range alone on lids with 12+ hours of wear without creasing, smudging, or fading.

The nice part about this particular light blue is the metallic sheen ensures that it doesn't look chalky, which sky blues often end up looking like because of the lightness in the color.
