Giorgio Armani Eccentrico Face Palette ($88.00 for 0.27 oz.) is an illuminating blush palette consisting of four shades: tangerine orange, coral-pink, lavender-pink, and iridescent white. Initially, it has a layer of gold shimmer, but it’s just an overspray and underneath, the colors are much darker and richer. It is also a lot less shimmery. Swirled together, the blush palette creates a hue of light-medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a pale golden sheen. Urban Decay Temper (LE) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Chanel Inspiration (64) (P, $38.00) is a cream product, less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Frantic Pink (P, $55.00) is warmer. MAC Stunner (LE, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Legendary (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery, less pink. MAC Launch Away (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Easy Manner (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. Benefit Bella Bamba (P, $28.00) is darker. See comparison swatches.

The texture is incredibly soft and finely-milled, and to that point, it can get a little powdery. It doesn’t look powdery or caky when applied, and it is extremely easy to blend and diffuse on the skin. It didn’t emphasize pores or imperfections on the skin. The color payoff was good, and even on my medium complexion, there was plenty of visible color.  Eccentrico wore well for eight hours, and then looked slightly faded after nine hours of wear.  I only wish they hadn’t bothered with the overspray, since it doesn’t go all the way through and drastically different from the way the palette looks when you actually use it!

Although the final color is nice, I actually liked the colors on the overspray better! I don’t mind oversprays, but this one seems misleading!

Let me start by saying that your brows are to die for! Are you still using MAC Espresso in your brow routine? Anyway, I love how this illuminating blush make you look do radiant! I have already purchased the Chanel LE blush in Accent last week and told myself it’s the only blush I’ll get this Holiday season but then, I saw this post and now I’m torn. Do you think this will show on my MAC NC30 / Chanel B30 skin?

That is so beautiful. Argh! I think I *need* it. (not that my husband agrees with the notion of “needing”” any make-up)

Do you have any images where you’ve scratched through the overspray? No worries if you haven’t- you work hard enough! Thanks Christine.

Christine, are photos #8 and #9 swatches with or without the overspray? I’m very fair, so I was actually a little let down by the huge difference. πŸ™ I thought it was going to be a nice highlighter.

OHHH This is stunning !! I really like, no, LOVE how all the shades swirled together look. Lovely <3

I agree with you about the overspray as it misleads the perception of how the colour is going to be when it's applied.. I thought it would be very pale, but it was apparently not that light on your swatch, which is a good news !

Thank you for sharing πŸ™‚

Hey πŸ™‚
Do you think this will suit skin tones that are really yellow/olive? I have a hard time finding pink shades that suit my yellow skin tone and I have a million different shades of peach blushes so trying to branch out into more pinks and pinky corals.

Well, that is different from what I expected it to be. With the overspray gone, the description of an illuminating blush makes much more sense. Pretty color that totally brightens up your face. I love it, but $88 to pay for this is a little steep, and I’m used to paying premiums! It is, after all, just another glowy pink blush!

Why bother with an overpay as it masks the true colour? Really nice colour but I don’t think it large enough to justify the $88US price tag to be able to use all those shade separately as well as together.

I think they could have just used overspray to highlight around the edges of the shapes and it would have looked good but shown off the true colours better. Maybe it was to make it look more ‘wintery’ :S

That is so confusing to have that darker pink shade be under the light peachy shade!! I don’t understand why they would do that at all… it’s like with their Fall collection but I think I am more forgiving to eyeshadows than blush. :-\

LOL! I’m the opposite – I’ve seen it more often with blushes so I’m not totally surprised but so rare on an eyeshadow!

I totally understand!! Now that i think about it, I like this better than their glitter overspray they had for last year’s holiday palettes. I am such a weirdo where I don’t want to “waste” the beautiful glitters, at the same time i don’t have many occasions to wear glitter LOL so it ends up sitting on my vanity for a looonnnngggg time unused

I saw a promo for this product and thought it was a highlighting powder.. how bizarre with the overspray. The final product is very pretty on you, but largely dupeable. Not something I would reach for.

The swatch looks really close to Nars Torrid or Nars Deep Throat. Are they possible dupes as well, or are they completely dissimilar? It’s hard to tell on a screen. LOL

While I love the look, the overspray if totally annoying. On any product. I much prefer products that are “what you see is what you get.” Off my gripe box. (sorry)

That over spray is very misleading isn’t it? I find it is rather similar to Maui by Bobbi Brown.
I must add Christine, you are looking lovely in all your photos, marriage definitely becomes you πŸ˜€

This is a blush?! It is supposed to cost 80 EURO!! in Germany. 110 USD. I am one of the greatest Armani Fand around but at this price point – I PASS. Sigh.
(It was announced as a highlighting powder, something like Guerlians Meteorite…)

Thank you so much for adding a picture without the overspray ! It must have taken you a lot of time to remove it very thoroughly.
Hoping you’ll be able to do that again.
It’s a very useful for us, as it plays on the buy/not buy decision.

That was smart :).
