Armani's latest eyeshadow collection Eyes to Kill Intense is somewhat different than the shadows you are used to. Sold in small pots in shades of intense marbled colour, the texture is somewhere between a powder and a liquid. It isn't messy. It doesn't leave powder everywhere, it isn't 'wet'. It is applied with a dry or wet eyeshadow brush depending on the level of intensity you are looking for.
It is made with their Colorfil hybrid formula that combines intense pure color pigments, pearls and a highly resistant polymer complex bonding system. It's designed to last for 24 hours and is water and sweat-proof. The formula is a combination of 40% translucent non greasy oil with 60% lightweight powder-free colour pigments.
The colours are more pigmented than they appear in the jar. I received #5 Gold Blitz from the launch and I really like it with my colouring. In the jar I thought it was going to be too gold/light but it's more of a brown/bronze.
- Does not crease. Even if you don't use a primer.
- Stays put as an eyeliner when applied with a slanted brush
- Fairly easy to apply. I like that it doesn't leave powder on my cheeks
- It's a sexy package. I'm not going to lie.
- Water and sweat-proof but easy to wash off
- After a week of use, I'm noticing oil appearing around the edges of the jar. It hasn't affected the application, but it makes me concerned for the longevity of the product.
- If applied lightly, it will wear off by the end of the day, similar to a powder shadow. I don't know why I thought it would last longer, but I did.
- The price is hard to swallow for one colour.
If you can, try it first in the store so you know exactly what colour you are getting and make sure you are in love with it because it is pricey and should last you for a long time.
Bottom line: I like it a lot, but I probably wouldn't spring for the $42 price tag in store.
