I haven’t really paid much notice to Giorgio Armani makeup because so far my experience with their SA’s is not so good. And this time around it’s no different. However, day before 4th of July a friend told me about new colors from their “pot eyeshadows” (her words). I went online to see it at the Nordstrom website and I was intrigues. I don’t really own much from their line except for 2 glosses so I decided to try out this product line as I’ve only read good things about this formula.

According to the Giorgio Armani Beauty website…

Just in time for Summer, try these waterproof, 24-hour wear eyeshadows, now available in six limited edition new shades: #24-#29.

Eyes To Kill Intense unveils a pearl blend that radiates four spellbinding colours. Each of the Eyes to Kill Intense shades is based on a revolutionary technology that acts like a kaleidoscope, producing multidimensional colors.

Neither a cream nor a powder, this incredible hybrid formula acts like a colour suspension that delivers a dreamy, ethereal beauty to eyes with a 24 hour hold.

I am missing #25 right now because they “couldn’t find the bag” with all my orders that I had placed on hold the night before. Talk about service…that reminded me why I never touched this brand before.

Here comes the photos…

I say: I love how these shadows apply on the skin. They look great on the pot and look great against the skin. I’m glad I indulged despite the so-so service I get from heir SA’s. I haven’t had the chance to test out their 24 hour claim but I tried to run water over the swatch but once they dried down the don’t budge.

Are you liking any of the colors?

I got mine at Nordstrom for $32, also available at Nordstrom.com and online at Giorgio Armani Beauty.

Almay Intense I-Color for blue eyes

Convenience must be an in-thing with all these shadow sticks popping everywhere. I can’t blame them. Time definitely is precious. Almay has 4 choices based on eye color. I have brown eyes but I chose hazel and blue eyes. I’m not much into blue shadows so I skipped on the brown eyed choice.

What the Almay website says about it…

new dazzling shadow sticks make it easy to create the perfect look any time or any where. simply swipe on the rich, vibrant shades to boost the natural brilliance of your eye color. the expertly coordinated complimentary shades can be worn together or alone for the perfect look whatever your mood. the highly saturated pigments won’t crease, fade or smudge all day long. with almay intense i-color™ shadow sticks, get beautiful, eye-popping color that lasts!

Let’s check out the swatches…

I only got to wear them for about 6 hours with primer. They are creamy, blendable but have to work quick before it sets, it didn’t crease, slight fading, no smudging. I find the colors flat and ordinary bear in mind I am used to layering shades and multi dimensional shadows but at this price point this product is good to have. They are available in drugstores and online for around $7.99.
