Aqua Collection, a limited-edition collection of six new shades, beckoned, but I don't live a sparkly kind of life. Still, when I went to the counter and played with them, two jumped into my "basket." They were too pretty to leave at the store.
Just in time for summer, these waterproof, "24-hour-wear" eye shadows are available in shades #24 through #29. Eyes To Kill Intense unveils a pearl blend that radiates four
spellbinding colours. Each of the Eyes to Kill Intense shades is based
on a revolutionary technology that acts like a kaleidoscope, producing
Neither a cream nor a powder, this incredible hybrid formula acts like a
color suspension that delivers a dreamy, ethereal beauty to eyes that will last until you want to remove it.
I took my swatch photos in full sun. I applied both shades with a sponge-tipped applicator. Eyes to Kill #24 is at the top of my arm in its deep golden-taupe glory. The complex shade is "close to taupe" on my skin, but it has a significant amount of gold in it. It's a difficult color to describe. "Smoky Copper" doesn't do it for me. I applied the top two swatches heavily.
The Beauty Look Book is featuring all six shades, and her swatches are fabulous. Sabrina saw no significant difference between #24 and #25. I did - in the store and in daylight - which explains why I purchased both of them. I will admit that in dim, evening light, they are very similar.
A couple of the shades have too much red pigment for my face, although they are lovely. Had I purchased a third, it would have been #26. Who knows? Since I'm weak, I may still do it. Tempted?
You can find these new Eyes to Kill eye shadows at Giorgio Armani Beauty's Web site, Neiman Marcus, Saks, and, I would expect, Nordstrom.
Update 8:43 pm: I have been playing with my shades this evening, and they look entirely different in the dimmer lighting at night. There's no good way to show you, so I must recommend that you just go to the counter (if you can) and play.
