Giorgio Armani wants to woo you with smooth, but forget candlelit Jodeci jams and champagne — GA’s smooooveness comes via a new mascara, Eyes to Kill ($28).
GA built Eyes to Kill for length and volume, but they also called upon rocket science-y research into fluid Microfil technology, micro-waxes and fineness agents (think 007) to make it easy to apply.
I tested glossy Steel Black, one of four shades available now.
Smooth, long and lifted
Now, I think Eyes to Kill does some things very well. For starters, it creates exceptionally smooth, long and lifted lashes.
Many of the lengthening mascaras I’ve used (particularly ones containing visible fibers) are able to exaggerate lash length but at the expense of smooth texture. The tiny fibers end up making my lashes look like jumbled logjams.
Eyes to Kill, on the other hand, manages to make my lashes look longer without leaving them looking coarse.
Two coats make my lashes reach for the sky while staying smoooove from root to tip.

Another thing I love about Eyes to Kill is how weightless (not heavy or crispy) it feels. I actually forgot I was wearing it at all.
Just a couple things…
Eyes to Kill would be on its way to mascara greatness if not for two things:
1) It starts to smudge just a *wee* bit by the end of the day and 2) the price.
It’s nowhere near as smudgy on me as $5 Maybelline Great Lash, but I was still able to see some minor smudging along my lower lash line.
That said, taking care to wipe away any excess mascara from the wand before using it definitely helps to keep the smudging under control.

You might like Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara in Steel Black if …
- you’re not a fan of heavy, fibrous mascaras;

- you don’t mind paying a hefty price.
Eyes to Kill has so many good things going for it; if it were $10 cheaper, I’d be madly in love.
America’s favorite dancer is…
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE *SPOILER ALERT*
Who else LOVED last night’s Lion King opening number? I loved it so much that I got up and danced. I grabbed Tabs and held him up like he was baby Simba! — which he wasn’t too thrilled about…
Unless he’s on a REAL Broadway stage, he won’t have anything to do with dance.
I guess the living room of our one-bedroom apartment doesn’t count, LOL!
SO thrilled that Jeanine took home the title, but it irked me that Kayla came in fourth. I think she deserved top three.
