More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #9

Giorgio Armani Rock Sand (9) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a warm, golden champagne with a little beige and bronze finished with a metallic sheen.  I liked this one better dry than wet, just because it seemed to give a smoother finish when applied dry.  As one of the lighter shades of the line-up, it seems less intense, but in reality, I think it’s merely the color’s natural lightness that gives that illusion, because it covers my skin fully so it’s not sheer.

The eyeshadow can be worn alone, as a base, on top of bases, with other eyeshadows, and so on and so forth.  They’re really versatile products, and when I wore this as a wash (without a base), I had no creasing or fading after twelve hours.  It has a really interesting texture, too, because it almost feels like a cream, kind of wet, very smooth, but it’s a really tightly packed loose powder.  You can use it wet or dry, and you can use fingers or brushes, though I tend to use a brush (I like MAC’s 239 or 242).

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).

I only took away half a point from texture since it didn't apply as smoothly wet as it did dry, but it's a really minor thing that I really don't think takes away from how well this wears.
