Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows Swatches and Review

I finally caved and bought a few of the new-ish Armani Eyes to Kill Intense eyeshadows. These shadows are unlike anything you've ever tried before. They are said to give 24 hour wear that is crease proof, sweat proof, waterproof, and flake proof. They come in 13 beautiful, metallic shades, but cost $32, each.

I tried 4 different shades. #8 Champagne (shimmering champagne), #9 Rock Sand (a light, bronzy nude), #6 Khaki Pulse (golden khaki), #4 Pulp Fiction (multi-dimensional gunmetal grey). The texture is neither cream nor powder, it and has a "mousse-like" feel. I really like the amazing metallic sheen they provide, its a very easy way to achieve a sexy, smoky look. They did last all day, but with some flaking of the shimmer (my daughter thought I looked "like a sparkle fairy"). Not exactly the daytime look I was going for.

Overall, I loved the colors and the ease of application, and the way they emphasized my eyes, but for the price, they could be better. I ended up keeping only #8, to use as a primer under my normal eyeshadows.

These were purchased by me.

  2. I know they are SO pricey but the colors and shimmer are gorgeous! #8 and #4 are my favorite :)
