Giorgio Armani #08 Gun Metal Eyes to Kill Solo
Giorgio Armani #08 Gun Metal Eyes to Kill Solo ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a dark taupe brown with cool undertones and a satin finish. It looked a lot more shimmery in the pan than it did when it swatched! The consistency was silky but powdery, so it didn’t apply as evenly or with as much intensity as desired. I don’t notice the shortcomings as much when I applied it into the crease with a fluffier brush, but for lid application, it is more noticeable. This shade started to fade after eight hours of wear.
