Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014

“Fade to Grey”, the new Giorgio Armani Beauty look for eyes, lips and nails, is subtle makeup for an elegant autumn. The shades come in soft mineral tones with a slight shimmer for a sheer, weightless effect. “Fade to Grey” offers women subtle and elusive beauty.

Fade to Grey Eyeshadow Palette ($88.00) (Limited Edition)

A gorgeous color duo featuring a shimmery black and delicate golden nude to structure and widen the eyes. The gliding cream texture, light like an airy veil, is easy to apply and can be adjusted to customize the makeup look. The result is either discreet and muted or more intense, but ever sheer and luminous with lasting hold. Its lightweight formula is derived from “micro pearl” technology. The shadow is cold cast in a base with a texture between gel and powder, and imprinted with a pattern before being pressed. Micronized pearl and pigment particles remain intact down to the bottom of the pan.

Well. First Hourglass releases histological slides as blush, and now Armani is releasing plant tissue sections as eyeshadow! 😀 Love it ^_^

Also, I see a purple lipstick…

LOL…I have the sneaking suspicion it might be really good but, like you, I’m hoping it is dreadful. I’ll be eagerly awaiting the dupes, whether it’s crummy or spectacular because there’s no way I’d pay that much either (and I cringe to think what it is likely to cost in Canada – probably 5 to 10 dollars more)

Calling a “duo” a “palette” is kind of stretching it and 88 dollars (so likely way more in Canada) is way more than I’d pay but that eye shadow “duo” sure looks pretty!

That eyeshadow looks absolutely gorgeous! But $88?! I think it’s laughable they call that a palette. I know Temptalia tries to eliminate price from the equation since budget is understandably different for everyone, but things like this get to a point where they’re putting lipstick on a pig (so to speak) and people are paying for it. I’ve been known to drop coin for cosmetics, but it’s just the principle of the thing sometimes 🙂

Lindsey, great minds must think alike…I said the same thing about the use of the word “palette” and I too quaked at the price. I guess Giorgio figures if Louboutin can do it with nail polish, he can do it with eyeshadow.

I’m assuming the pattern is lizard skin, but it looks like a microscopic collection of cells. It’s not a pleasant pattern.

The lipsticks look amazing, however.

The Fade to Grey Eyeshadow Palette is visually stunning. It’s kinda of grotesque but kinda beautiful at the same time. I wonder how it translates practically though?

Having seen swatches elsewhere, I have to say it’s the nail polishes I’m craving … super moody fall colors. The so-called “palette” I would buy at $60 but at $88 . . . the hand trembles. So many pretty (and actual) palettes this fall . . . one has to be disciplined!

What a gorgeous collection! That’s definitely the most lavish eyeshadow I’ve ever seen lol. While I love the colors and design I just can’t see myself paying $88 for it. If it was a bit cheaper I’d probably be all over it

I own this entire collection. The eye palette was to represent the stain glass windows in Milan. It is wonderful. The nail polish has the same finish as Deborah Lippman’s Satin Boxers. But she did it better. First coat is streaky, nothing unusual except for the matte finish. The lipsticks 524 and 624 are great colors. The blush has been around for quite some time. The single eyeshadow is a nice buff color. The eyeliners are different. One is close to the Chanel Plantine, but not quite a dupe. There is quite a bit of product in the palette. I agree the price is high.

wow googled searched trypophobia, there should be a warning. i wish i didnt even read the comments. i want the shadow but i also want to erase the last half hour of my life

I do not understand that “palette”, at all. Not the price, not the fact that it only contains two shades and, especially, not the pattern. I had to google trypophobia, seeing how it was commented earlier and ….just….. ugh… noooooo. A luxury product should NOT evoke anything remotely close to that. I found the Belladonna’s highlighter flower pattern a bit awkward and uninspired, but this is an entirely different level of weird. If they need help, they should hire Lancome’s “pattern consultant”. They nail it every time. The 2014 summer bronzer is how it’s done, or any special edition highlighter they’ve ever released. I’ve never purchased from Armani before and i doubt I will now, thanks to that google search (very tempting Maestro foundation be damned).

Gorgeous stuff, but too spendy for me.

I like the pattern, but I don’t suffer trypophobia. I know how grossed out I would be if they put a big cockroach design on it (I’m katsaridaphobic), so I feel for those of you who are not feeling this pattern.

Despite the extravagante high price, I purchased the eye-palette. It was love at first sight and, although my bankaccount looks angry at me, my eyes look beautiful. Both colours are easy to work with and I especially like the fact that neither of the 2 colours is too shimmery. Dimensional in colour, yes, in a very good way. The so called Grey is, on me, more of an interesting Taupe, which I love. All in all I can already say that I will use this item a lot. Very nice, and a welcome addition to all the brownish nude eyeshadows I own.

Actually, I’d love to see an embossed cockroach on a product like this. Funny, somebody mentioned they’d hate exactly the same thing 🙂 I’m personally not too excited about this collection.

Thanks very much for this post. F/W 2014 is a gorgeous collection and I especially loved the washy, transparent grey around the models’ eyes in the Fade to Grey film. I would like to buy whatever product produced that effect, but there is confusion about some of the color names (offered in department stores and online). Any chance of some swatches for the eyeliner colors below?

#2 Quarzo
#3 Ametista
#5 Perla Nera
#6 Oro Oscuro

Thanks very much,

Karen
