Good news, beauty belles – Giorgio Armani has returned to Singapore at last! ♥ The brand was previously only available within the transit area of Changi Airport a few years back but pulled out after a short stint, much to the chagrin of makeup lovers who were already dismayed that it was so inaccessible.
Happily, it is now easily available at the revamped Beauty Hall of DFS Galleria on Scotts Road.
The full range of Giorgio Armani cosmetics, as well as skincare products, will be exclusively available at the store. This means that we will be able to see and play with the brand’s Eyes to Kill Eyeshadows (those sparkly gems!), Luminous Silk Foundation (so smooth on the skin), Rouge d’Armani (like silk on the lips).
We will also be able to try Giorgio Armani Crema Nera, the brand’s premium skincare range which includes the signature Obsidian Mineral Regenerating Cream.
Even better news is the fact that the prices are very reasonable. According to the press release, they will range from S$25 to S$1532. The last is a curious number; I’m guessing it’s the price of one of the luxe skincare items. (ETA: see below!)
Here are the prices of most of the Giorgio Armani Beauty products in Singapore:
- Blushing Fabric – S$63
- Designer Lift Foundation – S$84
- Eyes to Kill Intense Eye Shadow – S$41
- Eyes to Kill Waterproof Mascara – S$46
- Face Fabric Second Skin Nude Makeup SPF 12 – S$65
- Gloss d’Armani – S$43
- Lasting Silk UV Compact – S$51
- Lasting Silk UV Foundation SPF 20 – S$73
- Luminous Silk Compact – S$66
- Luminous Silk Foundation – S$73
- Maestro Eye Liner – S$40
- Maestro Eye Shadow – S$33
- Maestro Eye Shadow Quator – S$66
- Micro-Fil Loose Powder – S$70
- Rouge d’Armani – S$43
- Sheer Blush – S$50
- Smooth Silk Eye Pencil – S$35
As a point of comparison, the Eyes to Kill shadows are US$32 in the States but this is only slightly less than the S$41 it costs here, thanks to the current low exchange rates. HURRAY for makeup math that works in our favour!
A veritable beauty playground, the DFS Galleria Beauty Hall also houses other brands such as:
- Bobbi Brown
- Christian Dior
- Estée Lauder
- Helena Rubinstein
- La Mer
- Shu Uemura
In keeping with its status as the world’s largest luxury travel retailer, DFS will offer Beauty Concierge services at this store to make the shopping experience a multi-sensorial one.
Available to all patrons, these complimentary beauty services include:
- personalised skin consultations
- skincare treatments
- therapeutic hand massages
- eyebrow shaping
- makeup workshops and techniques
How heartening it is to see Singapore experience a beauty boom this year. Now, we need only wait for Nars and Tom Ford to arrive, to satisfy our high-end makeup yearnings! ;)
Special thanks to my friend Elaine, who very kindly told me some of the prices and allowed me to use her photos.
