Giorgio Armani Eye Tints ($38.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) are a new product for spring. The formula is available in twelve shades that range from shimmery neutrals to deeper blue and green. It’s described as a “fluid eyeshadow” with “deep and intense color” that dries down quickly with “no sticky feel or residue” and lasts for sixteen hours. We shall see about sixteen hours! For now, here’s a preview of eight of the twelve shades 🙂

I have #7,#10, #2 and #8,#11 on order. The one’s that do have in possession….no primer necessary and on my oily lids…no creasing. Curious to read Christine’s review on these.

Christine Avatar

I fell over myself when I saw they were $38. The press release had them at $35 but online (including GA’s website) retailers were selling at $38. GA is one brand that consistently feels overpriced on a lot of things (not everything, but a lot). I wasn’t expecting a $20 price tag, but $30 would probably be more in line with expectations.

Mariella Avatar

It’s funny – some of the European luxury brands (Chanel, Clarins and Guerlain come to mind for me) cost about the same here as they do in the US or maybe a buck or 3 more, whereas Stila and some other companies have HUGE (10 dollars and more) price increases on their products here. Still, $39 is steep, especially when there’s L’Oreal Infallible, Maybelline Colour Tattoo and MAC Paint Pots (none in the tube/doefoot packaging but likely with similar results, I would think). I’ll be eager to see the reviews and maybe I’ll pick up one or two when we’re cruising in March.

Jenny, you saw them at the bay?!? Which one? The queen street location in Toronto told me last week the canadian release date was mid Feb! I’m dying to get my hands on onyx!

Bengisu Avatar

I’m so eagerly waiting for these to hit the market in Turkey! Never saw such intense images as the ones you posted here before, especially that Obsidian looks goorge! But Shadow is the one I’m definitely gonna get, since getting my hands on Chanel Illusion D’ombre and NARS Dual Intensity lines last year, I’m all about mono shadows!

But the lighter and nude-ish colors were nicer, at least for me, will you be reviewing those as well? It would be great to see them here!

I’m so. in love with these and keep buying more. This is about my speed as far as eyeshadow goes these days. I just swipe a bit on my lid, blend with finger into lashline and then use a fluffy synthetic to quickly diffuse out. done. You can layer a bit heavier on lid for more of a shimmer. #10 and #7 are definitely total workhorses. Weirdly, seeing your swatches here, I’m lusting after the light teal too. Great product!

Sunny Avatar

Green Iron is my favorite shade here! Can’t wait for your review. I might check it out later today when I am around a GA counter 🙂 As it is with every cream product out there, I hope it’ll stay on my oily monolids.

Michelle Avatar

Oooooh super excited about these!! They look amazing – hope the reviews are good. I’ll be happy with a 12 hour wear, no expectations of 16. If I can get half a day without fading or creasing or needing a primer I’ll be over the moon.

Katie Avatar

Some of these colors are so lovely! However, I’m never quite sure how to apply products like this. They seem better suited to a wash of the same color over the entire lid, rather than a blended look, which is what I prefer. I’m sure Christine will surprise me with a beautiful application!

i’m wearing a bunch of the eye tints today. i put rose ashes (11) on first and thought it was going to be a disaster. i was kicking myself for buying so many because this shade made my eyelids look like fish scales! not exactly what i was going for. fortunately, i proceeded to add more shades, and i really like the look. i used 11 on the inner corner, 9 and 12 (i think) on the middle lid and through crease and 4 in the outer corner/crease. i used 2 on the lower lash line and i lined my upper lid with 1. they have lasted all day with little fading (i used UDPP Eden). i was surprised how well they work as liner (i used wayne goss lip brush). i applied and blended with my finger, but i think i need to find a brush that will work will. (my inner corners looked less like fish scales the longer i had it on!)

OMG, I’m SO excited, can’t wait for the reviews! I have oily lids, and even if they last 10 hours, I would be thrilled. I don’t own any Armani, and this could be my first purchase. Onyx, Green Iron, and Shadow look so pretty. And maybe Obsidian too if it sticks well, no more panda eyes. I hope you can get Gold Ashes, too.

My bank account shall tremble, because I’m really loving these!!!!!!!!!!!
My favorites are Emeraude (04), Minuit (02), Green Iron (06) and Obsidian (01).
I definitely get dizzy looking at Emeraude (04).
Can’t wait for your in-depth review, Christine!

I’m intrigued by the choice of the name of the shade (03), because JADE is known for its “green” color, although it also comes in shades of yellow, orange, white, grey, black and even violet.
Not blue (laughs).

Kristen Avatar

I love it when you post these sneak peeks because I like to look at the swatches and try to guess your grade based on them. It’s a fun game!

Kristen Avatar

I always forget to subscribe to replies! Of course, I’m just going by swatches and don’t have nearly the info you do by really testing – so sometimes I’m right and sometimes I’m wrong! 🙂 I did think 06 would get the best rating – so far so good! I didn’t predict Emeraude would be as high as you rated it – so wrong there! I think other top contenders will be 02 and maybe 10 – who doesn’t love a bronzey-brown like that? But if I was right all the time, it wouldn’t be as fun!

Jenny Avatar

Wow these look absolutely gorgeous! I happened yo walk by an Armani counter yesterday and they had just put them out on display so I ended up getting #11 and #12, based on just swatching them in person. ; I’m curious about the wear time of these though. Can’t wait to see your review so I can figure out which other shades to avoid or to get LOL

Jenny Avatar

I am wearing #12 gold ashes today as a sheer wash of colour. It appears to be the most sparkly shade with more glitter than the other shades, which have more of a shimmer to them. It is still gorgeous though, especially when it catches the light.

So far, it is holding up really well but I’m not holding my breath for the “16 hour wear time” xP

Lauren Avatar

These are GORGEOUS but that price… If you look at the price for all 12 together, it is $456. That’s like buying a nearly $500 eyeshadow palette! Depending on how they wear, I might still feel inclined to pick up one or two. Looking forward to your reviews!

AndreaK Avatar

This is going to be my road to perdition. The shades are beyond lovely, and I am a sucker for liquid or creamy eye shadows. Im slowly getting fed up with powders. Why are they so expensive! Agree with you, 32 would have sounded more appropiate. Sigh…. I want Senso and Onyx and Shadow and Obsidian and Cold Gold and the blue one. Okay, I want them all! Lol!

Emeraude! GAH! I MUST HAVE IT! I wonder if they’ll have a pink selection – a replacement for my long D/C Estee Lauder ‘Go Wink’ cream e/s in ‘Pink Wink’.

I’d want to use these as liners!

Kimberly Avatar

Oh. Well that’s a nice surprise! I have absolutely 0 confidence in these kinds of products, but they actually look kind of nice! Now if only they can actually perform as well as they claim, my hope in these liquid-eyeshadow-in-a-tube products may be restored

Jillian Avatar

If these hold true to the 16hr claim, then they might be worth the $39 CDN price tag for me! Working in my corporate job, I can sometimes have 16hr days during my “busy season”… to know my makeup is fully holding up and not fading after such days is pretty huge for me!

I’m loving Shadow, Emeraude, and Green Iron 🙂
