More Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow with #5

Giorgio Armani Gold Blitz (5) Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($32.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a metallic, warm-toned bronze with subtle red undertones.  It’s probably one of the least exciting shades in the Eyes to Kill Intense line-up, because it doesn’t have the multi-colored look.  The color is gorgeous, but I could see this being a shade that’s more passable than the others, just because it’s a shade that most brands have some variation of.  On the flip side, it’s one of the best, in terms of quality.

It has the same rich color pay off whether used dry or wet, though it seems to be a touch darker when applied damp.  The texture is soft, smooth, and really silky–almost like a cream eyeshadow–but in reality, it’s a loosely bound powder.  I like using it alone or along with other eyeshadows, but it can be worn alone and held up for twelve hours without creasing on me (without a base).

This is actually the color I bought from the Eyes to Kill Collection and I <3 it….it is a great everyday color on my warm skin tone so I wear it alot:)!!!!!

It’s a pretty color but too common for my tastes. Although I do have to say after receiving blast of blue and purpura, I’m in love with the texture of these shadows. I think prior to beauty blogs and the whole beauty community on the internet, I’d have thought someone was crazy for spending 32 bucks on an eyeshadow. All I gotta say is, swatches and reviews make a hugeeeeeee difference in my thinking now. This was my first purchase from Armani and if it wasn’t for your swatches, I’d never have purchased from them.

Beautiful color – and I use golds a lot. But I just cannot justify the price tag for this brand, no matter how much I might fall for one shade. I will find something else that is close and works for me.

These shadows are unique, they have so many good points. Many of them have that holographic, duochrome look. They last forever, and go on so smoothly. They just might be worth the price tag.
