Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Stellar Reviews & Swatches

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).

Eclipse (03)

Giorgio Armani Eclipse (03) Eyes to Kill Stellar ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a smoldering, blackened brown with subtle, warm olive undertones and flecks of green and bronze sparkle. It had good color coverage, though just shy of opaque when I tried it all-over my lid. The texture had a sponge-like feel, where the product depressed if I pushed against it, but it acted very powder-like once it came into contact with my skin. This shade worked better applied as a full-on shade, rather than a wash of color, as the darker base made it harder to diffuse it perfectly evenly. It wore well for nine hours with a smidgen of visible fallout.

Ingredients

Stardust (04)

Giorgio Armani Stardust (04) Eyes to Kill Stellar ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light copper with strong, warm yellow undertones and a lightly sparkly finish. The pigmentation was good, though it needed to be built up to get to full coverage. The texture was lightweight, thin and more powder-like as soon as it touched my skin, but in the pot, it had light slip and felt just barely “wet” to the touch. It blended out nicely along the edges and stayed on well for nine hours before fading a bit.

Ingredients

Moonlight (06)

Giorgio Armani Moonlight (06) Eyes to Kill Stellar ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft beige with warmer, golden undertones and flecks of finer sparkle. It was very brightening and added a wet finish when applied to the lid or inner tearduct because of how much and how smooth the sparkles were. The texture felt smooth to the touch, spongy as the product indented with pressure, but it didn’t feel overly wet or truly like a cream eyeshadow. Fingertips (as recommended) yielded opaque coverage in one layer, though flat, synthetic brushes applied with more semi-opaque, buildable coverage. The eyeshadow was blendable, but the one issue I experienced was that the flecks of sparkle tend to diffuse when working with it, so I had to be mindful to avoid spreading the sparkle too far beyond the placement I wanted. It stayed on well for nine hours on me with just a smidgen of fallout over time.

These are really beautiful shades and I think Armani should put them in a quad. I especially love the Midnight shade of blue – quite unusual and of very good quality, which is hard for brands to get this one right.

Midnight and Eclipse are truly splendid for a sparkly smokey eye look, I’d say! Eclipse has me thinking about just waiting to see if Melt brings back that green palette…🤔 Maybe? But I do have UD Chains.

Eyes to Kill are back?! Yeeesssss!!!!! I can’t wait to swatch these just to make sure they feel as awesome as the first round, and if so there are at least two to three of this group coming home to me!
