Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Macro-Color Solo Eyeshadow #10 Beige Nudo, #15 Parma, #16 Dark Plum, #17 Green Viper and #18 Scarab, Swatch, Review & FOTD

Would you like to see my butterflies for Spring? Here they are. They keep flying around my head and all I can do is to bring them home with me. Do you remember the 4 shades I posted about a few days ago? It turns out I have now 6 more and I would like to show you five of them today, #10 Beige Nudo, #15 Parma, #16 Dark Plum, #17 Green Viper and #18 Scarab.

This time I made sure to get all the plums and crazy shades as well as a neutral to ground them down a little. #16 is just a little deeper than #15 so I didn't know if that one was the right choice but given my enthusiasm for plums, it just had to be. A for #18 and #17, I thought they would layer well... Also I believe on the promo picture model is wearing #17 and #18 and yes it is "a little" photoshopped as usual but I would like to try it out nevertheless.

On my desk now I have two towers like this and mornings are fun trying to figure out which of them to combine that day. I have been on a blush kick lately but I have to admit that there is nothing like eye shadows that cheer me up.

Here are quick swatches of five of the shades. In case you missed them, I have previously swatched all the shades on the counter here, and four other shades here,

#10 Beige Nudo is a light champagne with golden shimmer. It has shimmery to satin finish. It is not frosty but one of the most shimmery shades of the range.

#15 Parma is a medium plum with satin finish. It leans more red than blue.

#16 Deep Plum is exactly what the name suggests. Deep Plum has satin to matte finish and once applied on the lids, it looks more like matte but with some dimension.

#18 Scarab is a teal which leans more blue than green. Under store lighting it was more green so I thought it would be very unique to my collection but at home and once applied I have seen it to be a blue leaning slightly green. It has satin finish with beautiful green shimmer.

#17 Green Viper is a light yellow green with satin to matte finish. It immediately reminded me of this look and a more friendly version of the acid green in that palette. Right now I enjoy popping a little bit of color, especially on natural looks, so I thought it would be fun to experiment with Green Viper.

The first look I would like to present you is a combination of #10 Beige Nudo and #18 Dark Plum. I thought the golden hues of Beige Nudo would combine beautifully with Dark Plum.

By the application, I had a little bit of difficulty while using #10 Beige Nudo because my brush was slightly damp and this formula just don't like it. I applied Beige Nudo all over the lid and added Dark Plum to the outer corner. It was today in the morning and I was in a little bit of hurry so please bare with the degree of blending ;-)

For the second look, I used Scarab with Green Viper. Only after I applied and blended I remembered that I haven't used an eye base, so below you can see how these perform without one. On a side note, with a base these do last on me whole day but without base, I found that Scarab creased a little on me. For reference I am using Nars Pro-prime for almost each look.

I wore this one on Saturday, so it is weekend kind of look with vivid colors. I applied Green Viper to the center of the lid and added Scarab to the inner and outer half. I then layered Scarab with Green Viper on the inner lid. I completed this look with UD 24/7 eye liner in Junkie on the water line as well as along the upper lash line.

Here is the whole look with Armani Cheek Factory in Dolci on the Cheeks and two/three lipsticks layered on lips. I couldn't get the shade I wanted so I kept adding.  ;-) Also to make it modern, I didn't want to ground greens and blues and wore a coral shirt.

Final thoughts: I am loving the shades and the formula but the more I use, the more I find out about things that one has to take care of. Don't use them damp/wet and be sure to use a primer for a longer stay. These are now also released in US after Europe. It should be around the globe in no time. 

Which one is your favorite?

  5. Holy Moly - love the Scarab/Green Viper look although I'm not sure I could pull it off. The water line colour id especially beautiful but that may be the liner as much as anything? Great work though. Susan, London
