Words one does not expect to hear at a Giorgio Armani Beauty counter: “Where’s, like, the dollar menu?”
Because everything is pricey! — like this new $88 eye palette from Giorgio Armani’s Fade to Grey fall 2014 collection.
That’s a lot of glow, yo.
The sleek, stylish black packaging houses two absolutely beautiful eye luminous shimmer shadows, side by side — one, a warm, shimmery golden peach, and the other a purply taupe-ish grey.
On lids, these shadows are like Buzz Lightyear, reflecting light to infinity and beyond. The super shiny finish makes my eyes look BIG, doe-eyed and bright, and the effect is even more pronounced when I incorporate a dramatic mascara, like Armani’s new Black Ecstasy, which I’m wearing here.
When I’m wearing these shadows, because of how shiny and shimmery they are, I feel like I should also wear something matte to balance things out, add depth and keep things interesting. For these pics, that’s a matte warm brown, which I’m wearing in my crease.
Without that matte, I dunno… I just feel like the shimmer is a little much, you know?
