Giorgio Armani Zenith (13) Eye Tint

Giorgio Armani Zenith (13) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a brightened, sunshine yellow gold with lighter gold flecks of sparkle. This is one of the more glittery shades that I have tried, and it definitely didn’t apply as nicely as others as the glittery bits would bunch up and “thicken” on the lid rather than go on smoothly. It was semi-opaque to fully opaque (two layers) and lasted for twelve hours with some noticeable fall out over time. LORAC Gold Leaf (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Siren #4 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Inglot #403 (P, $7.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Golden Nugget (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Giorgio Armani Sunrise (14) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium orange with orange-red undertones and fine gold and pink pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage, though it can sheer out a lot if desired (use a smidgen to avoid over-applying!), and it smoothed out nicely without emphasizing the skin’s natural texture as it dried down. The color wore well for fourteen hours before creasing on me. ColourPop Sequin (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Starlet #4 (PiP, ) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Bellini (LE, $12.00) is lighter (90% similar). Le Metier de Beaute Carnelian Opal (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Flame Thrower (P, $9.99) is darker (90% similar).

Urban Decay Lucky (LE, $19.00) is darker (90% similar). ColourPop Wild One (LE, $4.50) is less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D712 Creme Brulee (DC, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Viseart Cindi (PiP, ) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Desert Roadtrip (LE, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Giorgio Armani Sunset (15) Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a darkened eggplant purple with lighter purple and violet pearl. It looks brighter and lighter in the tube and while drying down, but it is a deeper, richer shade when it dries down on the lid. It applied with opaque coverage, dried down evenly, and it lasted for fourteen hours before I noticed subtle creasing. The only issue I had with it was that it wasn’t as blendable as I’d like once dry, so it was harder to diffuse the edge. Illamasqua Queen of the Night (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Fingerpaint Art (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Smolder (PiP, $19.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Chanel Tisse Camelia #4 (PiP, ) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Plumluxe #4 (PiP, ) is lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Drama Queen (DC, $6.00) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Illamasqua Queen of the Night (P, $25.50) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Urban Decay Vanity (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Chanel L'Intemporel de Chanel #4 (LE, ) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Phoebe (P, $29.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a liquid-to-powder eyeshadow formula that has an almost water-like consistency that is cool and thin but dries down to a more powder-like finish and really sets in place. As it doesn’t dry down and cling, it feels very comfortable on the lid and typically looks forgiving, but some shades are sheerer or difficult to apply evenly. I’m not a fan of the doe-foot applicator and find using a flat, synthetic brush is best. The formula wears between twelve and fourteen hours on me (not quite the sixteen promised but certainly long-wearing). They have a slight learning curve, though.

Not really (skip the look….it’s ABOVE this + clicking on comments brings you below the look. I got fooled for a bit, too. I always get pulled to the S liners in C’s looks. Forced quite a few purches @ the recent extra points promo. Too bad those don’t turn into points towards levels. Love free shipping. Eccentric Diva is lovely on Christine (+ not bad on me, either.) Get it; it’s useful.

Zenith is too OTT glittery for me, but Sunrise is really gorgeous, and I don’t even like orange shadows. And I’m really impressed these last 12-14 hours without primer!

Christine, that is one of the most stunning and perfect eye looks I have ever seen! Thankfully, I do have dupes across 2 UD Vice palettes, so I’ll do this look myself for sure. Reminds me of the beautiful AZ sunsets that we enjoy during summer monsoon season!

Back on July 31st, we had an EPIC lightning storm! It happened on the day I was down at Tempe Marketplace JCP Sephora buying my Naked Smoky, afterwards, I came very close to getting hit by lightning while waiting for my bus!!! Threw my umbrella down, did the squat thing they say to do, and kept my purse with the palette inside tucked into my belly; I was scared quite literally witless!!! Or something that rhymes with it!

There was another pretty bad one around then too ( 27th? I think) , but thankfully I was indoors for that one. We had another very severe one just this Tuesday night!

Thanks, Christine, so am I, because lightning hit cars in that parking lot!

CA has also been getting some nasty storms, too! I heard that the Monsoon moisture has drifted waaay over there! It’s been a wild n crazy summer!

Sunrise! OMG I so want that. Such a gorgeous copper orange, and I think it would go nicely with Rose Ashes, which I already have. I like Sunset also.

Zenith is lovely too, but I know from experience that that type of really yellow gold does not suit me, alas.

LOVE your eye look, the colors combine so beautifully! The orange and purple are so pretty and those are my two favorite colors!!! I never bought any of the GA eye tints, even though I really wanted several initially. I just couldn’t justify the price in the end. I think if I had a job where I needed my makeup to look good for a substantial length of time, I could definitely justify it. But as it is, I only keep my makeup on for 6 to 8 hours, tops…so really almost all eyeshadows hold up for that long!
