Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Silk Eye Shadow 24, Rouge D'Armani Beige 111: Review, Swatches, FOTD!

 
If I was only allowed to wear one eyeshadow for the rest of my life, this would be it. That sentence alone should tell you everything you need to know about Giorgio Armani's Eyes To Kill silk eyeshadow in number 24.  But I'm in the first flush of love and there's plenty more I want to rave on about,  including the perfect nude lippie for autumn, so read on!

 
This is my first Eyes To Kill shadow and if you haven't tried them, then boy are you in for a treat. Billed as a hybrid cream/powder formulation, inside the little glass pot is a tightly packed loose powder that feels a little bit creamy and moist. A black plastic inner cap (that I live in fear of losing) keeps everything packed together nicely and stops the pot getting too messy.


Number 24 is a stunning looking mixture of black and gold with copper flecks. The colours swirl together for a beautiful result that looks different in different lights, and depending on how much product you apply. It can look bronze, blackened gold or, in some lights, a little bit olive. The texture is divine: soft, creamy and easy to blend. But here's the thing: it stays put ALL DAY LONG, no creasing, no fallout, nothing. It's superb, and signals the start of a serious addiction!

As for the lipstick, Beige 111 is the ideal partner for my Eyes To Kill. This sheer nude is the perfect new season shade and looks amazing with neutrals, a slick of black liner or a smokey eye.



Part of the Easy Chic Autumn Collection, I've been really impressed by the formula, too. It looks almost matte in the bullet but it's glossy on the lips, and feels really soft and hydrating, thanks to lightweight oils that lock in moisture without fading or feathering.

And the packaging? Seriously chic. The black lacquered case is elegance itself, but add in the magnetic closure and I'm swooning.
 
 

I was sent these by the brand but both the lipstick and eyeshadow come in at €26, and I will most definitely be investing in more.  These are Special with a capital S.

Have you tried anything from Giorgio Armani Beauty? Was your mind blown, too?

The colour is wonderful. Looks especially great on you with your dark eyes and hair. Sometimes colours just wash away on darker haired ladies like you & I, but I can see that quite well and it gives a great tone to the face :)) May have to seek that out :))) Hope your weekend was bliss doll & your new week will be too! xx

The make-up looks very good on you! I've never tried any GA products mainly because they're not that established yet and around to be found. Would give it a try though!

I LOVE the armani lipsticks, they feel beautiful on and the little magnetic lid means they're kept safe in any cosmetic or handbag. Eyes to Kill are gorgeous too, great texture and finish. x

Okay, these seriously look amazing on you Emma. The eye shadow is a lot lighter on than I had expected from the packaging. This looks like the perfect eye and lip combo for Autumn. The whole look just screams classy! I'll be adding these to my Autumn/Winter beauty wishlist!
