Giorgio Armani Eye Tint

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint, No8 Flannel
Giorgio Armani Beauty has to be one of my favourite make-up brands to date as although yes, its pricey, the luxury and quality of the products is simply incredible and I have fallen in love with every item that I have ever bought from the brand. For those times when you need something just a little bit special, then Armani ticks that box.
The newest launch from the amazing Giorgio Armani is Eye Tints - a liquid tint that cleverly transforms from a liquid to a solid, instantly adhering to the eyelid to give 16 hours of fault proof, smudge free, crease proof wear. Can be used as an eyeshadow or eye liner and layered up to achieve any degree of a natural or glamorous make-up look.

I have fallen truly, madly, deeply in love with this product. As you may know from previous blog posts, I have become a cream eyeshadow lover again in recent months with a love for Make-Up Forever Aqua Cream shadows but this product has blown me away - its insanely good.

There are 12 stunning shades in the collection which makes choosing a 'starter' shade very difficult as me being me wanted them all, but I chose the shade No 8 Flannel as I don't really own anything like this as it's really unusual and a good all round shade to see how it performed. I mean, just look at this stunning packaging for a start .....

No8 Flannel - This is a real chameleon shade thats a mix between dusky, rose pink and a silver grey with a golden shimmer - Its really indescribable and certainly unique!

To apply, simply use the fine tip to use as a liner and the flat side to use all over the lid or in the crease. Simply use your fingers a a fluffy brush to blend!

Trying to get a true picture of this shade was hard - they don't quite do it  justice as in real life this shade is so shimmery and changes under lighting and just beams! You can achieve so many different looks when paired with other eyeshadows as each pick out a different tone in this chameleon mix. Here are three swatches 1) in daylight 2) indoor 3) in normal lighting.

Applying these tints is simple and I really like the doe foot applicator as this makes doing eyeshadow quick and easy as you can just swipe, blend and your done! If you struggle with applying eyeshadow, hate creams or love liquid shadows then this is for you.

The formula is so unique and is totally different from any other eyeshadow that I have ever tried as this is a liquid not a cream and when you apply on the eyelid it feels cold and wet but then sets dry and is solid, its really strange but good! It 100% does not crease, smudge or move and stays flawless looking the whole time you are wearing it. The pigment is shimmery and vibrant even after one application. I recommend that you blend this as out as soon as you apply it as it sets fast so do on eye at a time.

Personally for me, this ticks all those Armani claim boxes as it is by far the most unique and best liquid shadow that I have used and thats staying something! The colour range is perfection and I have already got my eye (excuse the pun) on another 3 shades that I want badly (no's 10,11 & 12!)

I simply adore these eye tints and although they are on the pricey side at £27/€38 each, they are in my opinion totally worth it. To make the most from them just make sure you choose a shade that you know you could wear easily alone or blended with other eyeshadows then you shall not feel so guilty about the price tag! I highly recommend this shade (no 8) as its so versatile and gorgeous to wear for any occasion and look.
