Midnight (01)

Giorgio Armani Midnight (01) Eyes to Kill Stellar ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, navy blue with a black base and flecks of lighter blue, navy blue, and silver sparkle. It was one of the more sparkly shades in the range, which helped it twinkle and catch the light prettily. The eyeshadow felt like a cream-powder hybrid in the pot, as it squished as you might expect a cream to do, but it applied thin and dry like a powder would on my lid. It had opaque pigmentation but was harder to diffuse along the edges evenly as it seemed to have a patchiness to it I just couldn’t blend out along the edge. If I used a true powder eyeshadow of a similar or lighter color, I could get the two to mix and create a nice edge. It lasted well for nine hours with a touch of fallout at the end.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.14 oz. - $257.14 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "ultra-pigmented" and "long-lasting" with a "gel texture and shimmery finish." (Of course, the brand then goes on to say that they have "buildable color with intense shimmer.") The brand recommends applying them with fingertips, which definitely work, but I was also able to use the formula with flat, synthetic brushes and get good (nearly equivalent) results.

The consistency was gel-like, bouncy as they described, and felt like a cream-powder hybrid, though definitely more cream than powder in feel--slight slip and "wetness" to the touch. It had more of a powder-like feel and movement to it once the product is applied to the lid/skin. The pigmentation varied from semi-opaque to opaque, depending on the shade, and most were blendable so they could be used as a wash of color if preferred. They lasted between eight and nine hours with little to no fallout.

As a FYI, they are not an actual formula dupe/true replacement for the Eyes to Kill Intense range (which has been discontinued).

Halo (2)

Giorgio Armani Halo (2) Eyes to Kill Stellar ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, golden taupe with more muted, almost olive undertones, paired with a lightly sparkly, shiny finish. It had more shine than overt sparkle, which may or may not appeal more to a particular user. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which was easy to apply to bare skin as well as to diffuse and blend out for more of a wash effect. I felt that it worked as a wash as the base distributed easily and didn’t look patchy (an issue with deeper shades). The texture was spongy, thin, and lightly emollient but not truly “wet” to the touch. It wore well for nine hours and didn’t have any fallout that I could see.

Milano (501)

Giorgio Armani Milano (501) Rouge d’Armani Matte Lip Color ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly in a single layer. The consistency was velvety, denser but smooth as I applied it to my lips, yet it managed to feel lightweight while worn. It had good adherence but did not settle into my lip lines, and it stayed on well for seven hours on me. The formula felt lightly hydrating while worn as well, which was a nice bonus!

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.14 oz. - $271.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "intensely pigmented" with a "long lasting matte" finish ("8-hour wear") and is "non-drying." It had a denser consistency that seemed thicker but wasn't heavy, and there was just enough slip that it applied in a fluid, single stroke without tugging on my lips, but it didn't feel wet or cream-like on. The shades I tried were richly pigmented and applied evenly without emphasizing my lip lines. The formula felt almost powder-like, which gave it a velvety, denser feel compared to the average lipstick, likely due to the various silicones (dimethicone is the first ingredient). They lasted between six and eight hours on me and were non-drying to lightly hydrating. They did not seem to have any fragrance or taste.

Diva (200)

Giorgio Armani Diva (200) Rouge d’Armani Matte Lip Color ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a deep, reddish-brown with subtle, warm undertones and faint golden pearl strewn throughout. I’m not sure why this particular shade wasn’t called out as having shimmer, as the other three I tried were much more matte. It had a velvety, dense consistency that seemed thicker as I applied but felt lightweight and comfortable on my lips. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer and stayed on well for seven hours on me with a non-drying feel.

Day (31)

Giorgio Armani Day (31) Eye Tint ($39.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a pale white with silver and white sparkle and flecks of glitter. It had sheer coverage and seemed to have less chunky glitter compared to other shades, so it wasn’t as unforgiving on the lid when layered, though I wouldn’t want to layer it as it did still have a clumpier, more textured finish to it. It had a more watery texture, which I expected based on past experience with the formula, that dried down quickly enough that I could diffuse it as a sheer wash and have it set before settling into my creases and fine lines. On its own, it wore well for nine hours before there was noticeable fallout.

It’s one of six new shades that was made to be “ultra-sheer” and “shimmering” that can be “layered repeatedly.” I liked the concept–effectively a shimmery top coat in liquid format–but I found that the formula was far from being able to layer it “repeatedly” as it would clump up, apply unevenly, and was just exceptionally difficult to apply whether I used the included doe-foot applicator, fingertips, or a separate brush. I had the best luck patting the product on top of another powder eyeshadow but only in a sheer, single layer, and it looked prettier in person, at a normal viewing distance, and less-so close-up.
