Giorio Armani’s Holiday 2011 was released in Ireland a few weeks ago. Will you be dabbling this season?
“Like a 1930s’ boudoir… A touch of lacquer and patinated metals add a sophisticated feel to satiny, pearlescent tones. Delicate shades reminiscent of the silk lingerie of the time.” (Linda Cantello)
FACE & EYES PALETTE (€110)
Irresistible… Inspired by Art Deco style, Giorgio Armani’s famous black case is decorated in real Madre Perla. Precision work done entirely by hand in the purest tradition of luxury craftsmanship. Utter refinement: a silver logo adorns this exclusive limited edition case, which just 3,000 women in the world will have the privilege of owning. Decidedly unique… Inside are found three luminous, satiny powders in sand, champagne and aqua. Silky shadows that skilfully combine a featherlight texture with radiant colour. Blended over the eye area, the three shades sculpt and illuminate the eyes. Lightly dabbed onto the facial contours, the sand and champagne tones catch the light to increase the radiance of the complexion. The Face & Eye Palette is also available in Giorgio Armani’s iconic black lacquer case.
PALETTE YEUX 01 NOEL (€65.00)
A pastel harmony enhanced with a touch of iridescence. The smoky eye takes on a satiny, luminous sheen with the softness of this slightly metallic ivory, lavender and taupe trio. Micronised pigments incorporated into a translucent base cloak the eyelids in an intense veil of colour.
EYES TO KILL SHADOWS (€26)
Giorgio Armani’s most spectacular shadow is revealed in a limited edition of three metallic shades subtly patinated: a gold, as an echo to antique gilt, a toned down silver plutonium, and an intermediate shade blending gold and silver. Thanks to Colorfil color matrix, these creamy, powder-free shadows adhere to the eyelid like a second skin, without ever fading or flaking. At the heart of their formula is a very high concentration of pigments captured in a supple polymer complex resistant to humidity and heat. The result: a vibrant film of colour, as if cast in metal, which stays true for 24 hours.
There are also four lip glosses – Gloss D’Armani (€25) in Pink, Rouge and two shades of Plum.
The Face and Eye Palette looks so beautiful but what really appeals to me is the metallic gold and silver shadow. They look stunning.
