Alright. I gave in to the hype. Well it wasn't a premeditated crime, I got enchanted at the Giorgio Armani counter whilst repurchasing my favourite foundation (Designer Lift - review here). These shadows as you might know are a sort of pressed pigment very similar to L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows - made by the same manufacturer, (L'Oreal review here). Still, by swatching all of them at the counter, where the L'Oreal is a solid intense metallic colour the Armani are laden with different shimmers and glitters in a range of edgy intersting non generic colours - creating instant alluring peepers.
Be sure to keep the protective press so they remain smooth
I chose #1 'Blast of Blue' a metallic pewter gold with hints of blue & #2 'Lust Red', a cranberry black. The glitter/shimmer in these is unbelievable and unlike anything I've seen - way better than most of Chanel Illusion D'Ombres, it's more like something you'd find in a pigment. Reflective, sparkly, multifaceted and eye-catching. But because of the mix of colours in the shadow, dimension is beautifully created. I love these shades because it makes for a different eye look and a few neutral tones would balance everything out.
They are very long wearing and even without a primer apply very smoothly. Even if you are slightly older I definitely think you could sport this all over the lid.

Bottom line, with these your eyes are sure to kill.
