FOTD: Nvey Neutrals & Armani Red

This was one of those ‘a little of this/a little of that’ faces:

FACE
Guerlain Parure Extreme (Dore 24)
Armani Loose Powder (translucent)
By Terry Rouge Terrybly in Sexy Plum
EYES
Nvey Eco Color Palette in #3
Tan on the lids
Warm Brown blended through the crease
Sheer White on inner crease
Cool Brown under waterline
Tarte for True Blood Eye Pencil on lashline and waterline
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
LIPS
Rouge d’ Armani in #400
*I finally got that By Terry Blush to show up! It works better OVER foundation. A swatch on bare skin will render it nearly invisible. I think it need something to grab onto (like a primer or a foundation) in order for it to truly shine.*

FOTD: Silver & Red

I wanted to dig into my new Armani Eyes to Kill Silk Eyeshadows. For this look, I used the shadow in #17…

FACE

Koh Gen Do Translucent Powder

*A full review on the Tom Ford Foundations is coming.*

Lip Service: Armani Rouge 400

Oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I LOVE this lipstick! It’s not just that Armani’s Rouge d’Armani series wears for 8 hours (no joke), the formula is so CREAMY and lush… this lipstick is perfect for the Holiday Season.

Armani Rouge d’Armani Lipsticks retail for $30 each, and you can get them from the Giorgio Armani Website:

Haulage & Swatches

So, I swapped the pinky lippies for the brown and the red… and now I’m ready to road test them for longevity! These glosses have a bit of the same feel as the Rouge d’ Armani lipsticks (which last all day), so I’m thinking that Armani found the magic bullet for staying power.

 
On the left, Brown 200 and on the right, Rouge 400

These swatches came out so much better on my arm than on my lips. But I did both anyway…

It was IMPOSSIBLE to take a picuture of the red with a flash… the color and shine just blew the flash all the way out… it was tragic. So I took a pic without the flash, and it came out better. The red is OPAQUE… reminds me a lot of Beaute’s Masochist.

I’ll road test these babies to see how long they actually last. So far I like them… a LOT.
