Scarab (37)

Giorgio Armani Scarab (37) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a deep, grene-teal with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. There was very fine, barely-there pearl throughout, but the base color and finish came through enough that it overrode the shimmer when applied. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, and I’d even say that a little went a long way–it could be easy to over-apply, so thankfully, it did work well with separate applicators (like a liner or flat brush) for more detail-oriented work.

The consistency was fluid, watery but not too thin, and quick to dry down, so it didn’t settle into fine lines or crease as it dried down. The downside to the quick dry down, though, was that it was difficult to get a really diffused edge within the time it was drying down. This shade lasted nicely for 14 hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.13 oz. - $230.77 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "vibrant, intense color" with a "buildable, no-feel finish" that lasts for "16 hours of smudge and crease-proof wear." It's a reformulation of the original Eye Tints, which had a similar liquid format but came with a higher price tag ($38, but they included more product, which isn't always a good thing!), but it's substantially different in feel, application, and pigmentation.

Where the formula goes right is that once the product dried down, it stayed put well. They lasted well for 12 to 14 hours without creasing and only started to look a bit faded from there. The line has quite a few shades, but of the ones I tried, they tended to be sheerer and worked better as a wash of color. They definitely did not live up to the "vibrant, intense color" claim.

The consistency was watery, thin, and didn't apply as well with fingertips or a separate brush as a result. Fingertips and brushes tended to push the product around, and it was best applied in small, circular motions with the included applicator. The accumulated product within the applicator seemed to help the product stay in place better, which yielded more even and higher coverage (though still not "vibrant" or "intense"). It dried down quickly but felt flexible and comfortable to wear, and I could just barely blend out the edges once set if had to.

The brand calls out four finishes but provides no real descriptions of them. The best I could tell was that Smoke was matte, Silk was more pearlescent, Acqua was sheerer and more sparkly, and Chrome was likely more metallic.

They're a miss based on how they're marketed, but if you're someone who loves a sheer wash of one-and-done color, then the appropriate your-skin-but-better kind of shade might make it a formula worth trying, since it was long-wearing and sat well on my lids.

Ice (43)

Giorgio Armani Ice (43) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) seemed to have a translucent base with flecks of silver micro-sparkle and finer pearl throughout. The applicator seemed slightly tinged with gray, so the base could have been ever-so-slightly gray-tinted but it was hard to tell. The texture was very thin, watery, and had good diffusion of the shimmer for a wash of fine sheen and faint sparkle all over the skin.

It was a far cry from “vibrant color,” though, as it was sheer and buildable to semi-sheer to medium coverage at best, but it would be most practical to use as a wash of shimmer all over the lid or layered on top of something else. There was slight creasing after 15 hours of wear.

Gold Foil (45)

Giorgio Armani Gold Foil (45) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light-medium gold with strong, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had medium coverage in a single layer, which was a little easier to apply and get even when applied in small, circular motions using the included applicator than with a fingertip or a brush.

I could build up the coverage by applying a thin layer with fingertips, then waiting for it to dry, and applying a second layer on top, which didn’t feel too thick to be practical. The consistency was very thin, watery, and quick to dry down, so I’d recommend working one eye at a time. It stayed on well for 14 hours before fading noticeably.

Halo (46)

Giorgio Armani Halo (46) Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light, golden taupe with moderate, warm undertones and a smooth, metallic sheen. It had good color coverage in a single layer, which was nearest to opaque in a single layer when applied with small, circular motions using the included applicator. Fingertips or a separate brush (flat, synthetic) needed a bit of topping up to get to full coverage but hey, at least it was doable with this shade!

The consistency was lightweight, thin, and watery with a quick dry down before it became fairly budge-proof. It wore well for 15 hours before creasing slightly.

Halo and Scarab have far better quality than the rest of these! Thankfully I don’t need either one, though. Having Viseart Chroma Theory palette and UD Damage, I’m pretty good. This post DID remind me that I have SG Cliff Jumping on my WL, so…yeah, it may be high time.

How strange that the new scarab actually seems better than the original when all the other revised versions seem so much worse.

Scarab is a gorgeous shade of green, but thankfully I have quite a few dupes of this shade (UD Damaged from Vice 2, The originial Rebel quad and Max Volume from bareMinerals).
Halo is another lovely shade. But I think, overall, these aren’t as good as the original eye tints and much trickier to use.
