Armani: Summer 2012

THERE HERE!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for the new Armani Eyes to Kill Silk Eyeshadows, and FINALLY they’ve arrived!

From the top left: Obsidian Black, Obsidian Grey, Ecailles, Madre Perla

The theme for these new shadows is Teal. Every color is infused with some version of teal… with  maybe the exception of Obsidian Grey. Ecailles reminds me of the ‘Airy Jade’ color (#10), but it’s more teal and less ‘sky blue’ in the finish. 
Like their predecessors, the formula is like a ‘dry cream’ to the touch… they set and stay put until you take them off. Brilliant.

Armani Holiday 2011: Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadows

THEY’RE FINALLY HERE!

The entire Holiday 2011 collection is completely awesome… but you guys knew that if I had to choose, I’d take the Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadows first. No question.

So I got the shadows in #17, #18, and #19.
#17 is a distinct bright silver shimmer
#18 is a distinct bright gold shimmer
#19 is a distinct blend of silver and gold shimmer

It was impossible to catch the glory of these shadows in my swatches. They have such dimension and shimmer… they are simply wonderful, and PERFECT for Holiday Makeup. I adore them.

There is also an amazing selection of lipglosses with this collection. Reviews on those are coming.
