Back in October, I was lucky enough to attend The Beauty Social that Beautylish put on, and one of my favorite bloggers, Temptalia, was also in attendance. I like to think of Temptalia, aka Christine, kinda as my personal guidance counselor when it comes to blogging, and as word of law when it comes to beauty products :) She kept going on and on about the Armani Eyes to Kill eyeshadows, and how amazing they are. Considering this girl has one of the top beauty sites going and has swatched and tested more makeup than i can fathom, when she says I NEED something, I don’t doubt her!
Armani Beauty had a 20% off sale right before Thanksgiving, and I took that opportunity to order 6 of the Eyes to Kill eyeshadows. When they arrived, I was slightly irritated because they came in a pretty large box considering the size of them, and there was absolutely no padding (tissue paper, bubble wrap, etc) inside the box, so I’m sure they had a bumpy transit. Two of the shadows actually came loose and I’m able to pop out entirely. This would have really upset me, but these shadows are packed in glass pots, so there really isn’t anything holding them in anyways. They didn’t crumble or loose their shape, so it’s not anything worth getting upset over :)
Anyways, on to the swatches!
#1, #2, #3- Swatched on clean hand, no base
#6, #10, #19- Swatched on clean hand, no base
The #19 shown here is one of the new holiday colors :) I love these! I am obsessed with #2 and #3, they are really gorgeous and #3 is so unique. I have yet to actually play with these more than just swatching, I’ll probably use them tomorrow for Wednesday’s tutorial :) What do you think??
