Giorgio Armani Flannel, Cold Copper, Rose Ashes, Gold Ashes Eye Tints

Giorgio Armani Eye Tints ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) are a really fun, interesting formula that’s one of the better liquid-to-powder eyeshadow formulas I’ve tried. They can be worn together as a more blended, complex look (see this post), opaque, all-over shade, or sheerer wash of color. The formula starts of as a thinner liquid with an almost cool feeling against the skin, and once it dries down, it transforms into a powder product; it remains blendable even after it “dries” for about a minute, because it really just looks, feels, and acts like a powder eyeshadow. If you press your fingertip to the dried down results, a bit of color will transfer to your fingertip (not all of it, and it is in line with the same effect as accidentally touching your fingertip to your eye with powder eyeshadow). It feels weightless, comfortable, and doesn’t “shrink” on the lid. Giorgio Armani markets these as having 16-hour wear, which isn’t quite what I get, but the formula wears twelve to fourteen hours on me, which is longer than most powder eyeshadows for me.

Giorgio Armani #10, #19, #23 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadows

Giorgio Armani #10 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a golden beige with warm undertones and a metallic sheen with larger dark champagne sparkle. The texture was soft, but it was dry, which made it apply less smoothly. It was also more prone to sheering out when blended on the skin. The eyeshadow wore well for seven hours on me before fading. Colour Pop XO (P, $5.00) is a cream product. LORAC Uninhibited (P) is lighter. Dior Golden Shock #5 (LE) is similar. MAC Sweet Sovereign (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. Too Faced Nutmeg (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Tarte Golden Locket (LE) is yellower. MAC Until Dawn #2 (LE, $21.00) is yellower. Sleek MakeUP Meet in Madrid (LE, $9.99) is darker. Giorgio Armani #10 #2 (P) is less sparkly. MAC Rich Glance (LE, $21.00) is a cream product. Dior Night Golds #5 (LE) is similar. Dior Fairy Golds #2 (LE) is more sparkly. bareMinerals Kudos (LE) is less warm-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Olga, Cecile, Suzanne Rouge Coco Lipsticks

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.10 oz.) has been reinvented with a “renovated formula and vibrant colour spectrum.” Each shade is “inspired by Coco Chanel and her closest friends.” The formula is touted as “ultra hydrating,” “rich,” “bright,” and “luminous.” The texture is lightweight with moderate slip so it glides on without tugging. These were comfortable to wear, but they weren’t “ultra hydrating” to me, and the color payoff didn’t see vibrant, rich, or bright.

Bite Beauty Marzipan & Moka Butter Cream Lipsticks

Bite Beauty Marzipan Butter Cream Lipstick ($28.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “milky chocolate.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle rose and caramel tones. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, creamy consistency that gave it a luminous finish. The texture was slightly thicker than the average lipstick but never felt heavy. The color lasted well for five hours and was hydrating over time. NARS Femme Fleur (LE, $26.00) is darker, redder, brighter. Guerlain Gaetane (16) (P, $51.00) is brighter, redder. Maybelline Maple Kiss (925) (P, $7.49) is similar. NARS Het Loo (P, $25.00) is more matte, browner. MAC Glamour Era (P, $22.00) is more matte, slightly pinker. MAC Mocha (P, $16.00) is more matte.
