Eyes to Kill Shimmer 4-Color Eye Shadow Palettes ($59), since the box and the palette itself mention nothing about shimmer. I'm still confused by the name, and I think others who aren't forewarned may also be confused. Two shades in each quad definitely offer shimmer. Two don't.
The four new Eyes to Kill Quad Shimmers are said to feature iridescent, eye-catching colors with electric shine and shimmer. "Irresistible with its extremely soft, sensory appeal, the eye shadow arms the eyes with a flawless weapon all day long." However you describe them, the four new quads are fabulous. You can read more about the four palettes here.
The top shade, taupe with a touch of grey, will put all the emphasis on your eyes. It's one of those colors that's bound to look good on almost everyone. The next shade down is a hybrid of ivory, beige, and gold. It offers a subtle shimmer and serves as the perfect base or highlighting shade for the other three.
The bottom, greyed brown is a great liner or accent shade for the crease and outer V. Applied lightly, it adds depth and definition.
This Armani Beauty Eyes to Kill Quad Shimmer 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette in #11 is magnificent - one of the prettiest neutral quads I own. It will take a place of honor with the shadows I keep in my bathroom, right at hand for frequent use.
You can purchase three of the four shades at the Giorgio Armani Beauty Web site. You can find all four at Neiman Marcus (click on the Neiman Marcus link to see all four palettes). One or two would be a great addition to your Beauty Event purchase. If they aren't at your favorite Armani counter now, I'm sure that they will arrive soon.
I have one more to show you: #10. It is composed with warn flesh peach tones and is a stunner. I will definitely feature it within the next day.
