Giorgio Armani #17 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow

Here are the other three shades of Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.053 / 0.061 oz.) that I have to review. The newest release is supposed to have a formula that’s soft, highly pigmented, and long-lasting formula. Next time Giorgio Armani has a friends and family sale, I’ll probably pick up a few more shades to test out, but for now, this wraps up our coverage on the new formula! πŸ™‚ The matte shades contain 0.053 oz., while the shimmery shades contain 0.061 oz. The matte shades have a very soft, silky texture that’s thinner and almost “dry” in a way, but it’s not truly dry (and not in a bad way), so there is good color payoff, blendability, but they don’t get everywhere. The shimmery shades are incredibly soft, buttery, and smooth–they’re so easy to use and apply. Across these three shades, they wore eight hours, but the navy blue shade was in worse shape (slightly creased) after nine hours, while the other two were just slightly faded.

Giorgio Armani #17 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a brightened, lime green with warm, yellow shimmer and undertones. The texture was soft and blendable, so it was easy to work with, and it was incredibly pigmented. I was really impressed that the brand didn’t shy away from the true intensity of lime green here. Fyrinnae Bitey Tyrannosaur (P, $8.25) is a touch darker. Illamasqua Possession (LE) is a crea product, darker, cooler-toned. MAC Swimming (P, $15.00) is darker. MAC Lucky Green (P, $15.00) is slightly yellower (less “lime”). Make Up For Ever #171 (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Giorgio Armani #18 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.061 oz.) is a muted, smoky bluish-teal-shimmered navy blue with cool undertones and a frosted finish. It had fairly good color payoff, and the texture was soft, silky, and easy to blend on the lid. theBalm #17 (P, $6.50) is lighter. Sephora Collection Across the Universe (100) (P, $13.00) is sheerer. Makeup Geek Ocean Breeze (P, $5.99) is similar. L’Oreal Timeless Blue Spark (760) (P, $7.99) is bluer, lighter. Giorgio Armani Blue Beetle (34) (LE, $33.00) is lighter, brighter. Tom Ford Beauty Emerald Lust #4 (LE) is darker. Sugarpill Magpie (P, $12.00) is brighter, less blue. bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is less iridescent. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Giorgio Armani #02 Eyes to Kill Solo Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.053 oz.) is a purpled, navy blue with a matte finish. It had a soft, silky, and finely-milled texture that was thin but not powdery. It blended easily on the lid, and it had good pigmentation. Laura Mercier Deep Night (P, $23.00) is more muted. bareMinerals Maven (LE) is similar. MAC Naval (LE, $15.00) is brighter. Inglot #389 (P, $6.00) is darker. Inglot #332 (P, $6.00) is lighter, bluer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

ummm… WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! jaw drop

I’m so impressed with the lime shadow. So often you see shadows in this range and they are on the sheerer side or the pigmentation bites or they are so shimmery that the colour kinda fades. #17 really truly rocks. Your eye look is OMG gorgeous and I love the navy/lime combo..so flattering and like a dramatic neutral with a fun hit of colour. That naval toned matte blue is a definite must have. I was thinking I might escape buying a couple of these, but it seems from the 6 you have reviewed, I’m going to be having a difficult time paring down my wants versus my needs.

Right?? With high-end/luxe brands like Giorgio Armani, you never know if they’re going to actually go for the gold, but they SO did!

I love the look you’ve created here! #02 is a very interesting matte shade and #17 has the wow factor, but my pick is #18. I love a good frosty shimmer!

Wow, the look you created with these eyeshadows is stunning! You have so much talent to combine colors, just gorgeous!

I wonder how that #18 compares to the Siren #7 from the colorful palette which you reviewed last week….do you know what I’m talking about?

I love them all! I’ve heard nothing but good things about Armani shadows. I need to add a couple to my collection soon!

Gosh, but these are LOVELY. I’m sort of glad they’re not readily available near me or I’d be dropping a bundle (starting with the taupe you showed yesterday and continuing on with the #18 blue (and I don’t even wear blue eyeshadows all that often….) and throwing in the green for good measure! I keep telling myself to look away from these reviews but I always end up taking a peek and then I’m done for!

I’m going to pretend I didn’t see any of this (I can hear my wallet whimpering, poor thing) as that green and the #18 look lovely. I really like how you have blended the colours. Better go and wave some smelling salts over the wallet as I think its fainted….!

I just scroll down to the end of the post to see what you did with them and then suddenly everything makes sense! Such a pretty look!!

*big sparkly eyes* Oooh…

That green is amazing, and I love how the navy is actually navy (not kind of blackened blue)!. Definitely going to have to have a bit of a swatch fest of these in Dubai… (that scraping sound is my wallet trying to drag itself away across the floor. It’s OK. I caught it with my foot.)

They are beautiful πŸ˜€ I got similar shades(especially the green and navy) from a cheaper brand, Flormar. I love lime green and navy blue

I said out loud ” Wow, those are nice!” lol! Not that I’m good with incorporating colours such as this, but I still want them!

What a beautiful look! Definitely going to try to recreate it with some colors I already have since I can’t afford to buy more makeup right now.

Thanks, Sarah! Good luck with the recreation – I am positive you can find shades like it in your stash πŸ˜€

I love the look that you created with these shadows! I just picked up the lime green yesterday and can’t wait to do something similar on myself. What liner are you wearing on your lower lash line in the photo?
