More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #7

Giorgio Armani Sweet Fire (7) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, rosy pink with a metallic sheen.  It’s a much more wearable pink than you often seen, because it is less vibrant and reflects more of the natural pink found in the skin.  I did feel like the color in the pot didn’t match the result when used–it looks pinker, less rosy, so it is a little misleading.

This is a product that lives up to its claims–it wears all day without budging, creasing, or fading–and blends as well on its own as it does with other eyeshadows (or on top of an eyeshadow base). Giorgio Armani describes the Eyes to Kill Intense formula as neither powder nor cream but a hybrid that creates a “smooth, lasting color film” that can be applied wet or dry.  Giorgio Armani explains, “Each shade is intensified with a second pigment for a multi-dimensional effect. In just one swoop, create a wet, shimmering smokey eye … Base color covers eyelid, and second pigment adds drama to the contour.”

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).

If the color in the pot matched the actual color swatched, it would have been a higher rated product, so take that into consideration--if the softer pink is more your style, then it works out for you!
