Giorgio Armani launched his new limited edition beauty collection, Fade to Grey, on the Fall 2014 runway. The products were all tested out backstage and while Armani has had a successful cosmetics line for awhile it was only recently that I started using his products. I was lured in by the gorgeous packaging. The above shadow palette ($88) for example is two-tiered as it has a bottom tier with two brushes – so rare these days that shadows come with brushes and it’s such a pet peeve of mine when they don’t! The formulation goes on buttery soft with shimmer – I still use an eye primer, but you could forgo it in a pinch because of the creamy texture. Similarly his polishes ($20) come in a sinuous bottle – so memorable, yet completely understated with a super smooth formulation. The website really doesn’t do these products justice. I’d highly recommend going to see them in person – not only are the colors richer than they appear on the screen, the packaging really doesn’t translate so well on the computer.
