Giorgio Armani Shadow (07) Eye Tint
Giorgio Armani Minuit (02) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a deepened navy blue with a satin finish. I would almost describe it as a pearl finish, but it doesn’t have that pearly sheen, yet it has a bit more shimmer than your traditional satin finish has. It was nicely pigmented with a thin, lightweight consistency that spread well and blended easily. On me, the color wore well for almost fourteen hours (out of the 16-hours promised), which was quite long, and I didn’t have any issues with fall out with this one (not surprising, given it isn’t sparkly).

Giorgio Armani Jade (03) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a light-medium pastel blue with a hint of gold shimmer. This was one of the weaker (if not weakest) shades of the formula, because it wasn’t as pigmented as the others. It is buildable, if you apply in layers, but it just never went on fully opaque in one layer like the rest (it didn’t even seem watery). It spreads and blends well, but it tends to sheer out noticeably. On me, it lasted for twelve hours before fading noticeably. Sugarpill CandyCrush (P) is lighter. Make Up For Ever I210 Light Turquoise (P, $21.00) is darker. Make Up For Ever I204 Sky Blue (P, $21.00) is brighter. Dior Atlantique #2 (LE) is less shimmery. Dior Rivage #3 (LE) is cooler-toned. Giorgio Armani June Beetle (31) (LE, $33.00) is darker. Maybelline Icy Mint (LE, $6.99) is lighter. NARS South Pacific #2 (P, $24.00) is darker. MAC Styledriven (P, $21.00) is cooler-toned.

Giorgio Armani Shadow (07) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, purple-taupe with a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a very smooth finish. This particular shade seemed a little thicker in consistency compared to others I’ve tried. The texture was lightweight, blendable, and spread well across the lid without losing intensity, but I noticed that it almost too pigmented and a little goes a long way. If you over-apply and it dries down, it seemed to amplify the texture of my lids slightly, so there continues to be a learning curve with these. –the second time I tried it, I applied a little less and had great results without a fuss. It wore well for fourteen hours before fading on me. Kat Von D Darkstar (LE) is darker. Colour Pop Meow (P, $5.00) is darker. Gucci Beauty Sasso (P, $37.00) is lighter, more sparkly. Giorgio Armani Organica (Left) (LE) is darker. Too Faced Nashville (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer. MAC Fathoms Deep (LE, $19.50) is darker. MAC Great Beyond #4 (LE, $21.00) is darker. MAC 2x Dare #3 (LE) is darker, more sparkly. MAC Dangerous Cuvee (P, $18.50) is slightly warmer. L’Oreal Liquid Diamond (P, $7.99) is lighter. Inglot #434 (P, $6.00) is darker. Inglot #420 (P, $6.00) is brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
