Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow
Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($33) is a black with glistening copper and gold. When the colors mix together, it turns into a beautiful dark khaki/olive green. It’s a fabulous color, and the type of shade that I gravitate towards, as it flatters my hazel eyes and warm skin really well. It’s a bit of a chameleon color, as it shines differently depending on the lighting and angle. Sometimes the color looks like a glistening warm brown and other times it looks like a golden olive. In the sunlight, the golden hues really shine through. It reminds be a bit of MAC Gilt by Association Mineralize Eyeshadow, a shadow I frequently wore in the past.
I know these eyeshadows are old news, as they’ve been out for a couple of years and I don’t hear much about them anymore, but recently, I went through my makeup stash and dug out shade #8 Champagne, and have been using it multiple times a week. Naturally, it sparked my love for this product again, and I wanted more. So, #24 became my newest addition to my makeup bag.
The texture of the eyeshadow is like a very finely milled pressed/compacted pigment. It’s incredibly silky and blends effortlessly. My favorite application tool is my fingertip or an old-school sponge applicator, as they both pick up the most product and apply the product in an opaque layer. A small flat brush also works well, such as a small concealer brush. You can also dampen the brush and apply the product wet for an almost metallic finish.
- Vibrant, metallic color
- Can be used wet for more vibrancy and a metallic-like sheen
- Opaque pigmentation
- Easy to use
- Blends easily
- Really long lasting
- Lightweight, pretty packaging
- There is a little fall-out due to the soft crumbly texture, so finding the right brush/application tool is necessary – like I mentioned, I like using my fingertips the best! Most eye brushes don’t work well with these and will result in a sheer black color on the lids.
