Giorgio Armani Beauty Acqua Collection Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadows for Summer 2012

July 27, 2012

Fans of the fabulous Eyes To Kill eyeshadows will be pleased to know that the capsule Giorgio Armani Acqua Collection has arrived on our shores.

Eyes to Kill unveils a pearl blend that radiates four spellbinding colors. Each shade is based on a revolutionary technology that acts like a kaleidoscope, producing multidimensional colors…Neither a cream nor a powder, the incredible hybrid formula acts as a color suspension tool that delivers dreamy, ethereal beauty to eyes with a 24 hour hold. Crease-proof, flake-proof, waterproof and sweat-proof.

– Giorgio Armani Beauty

Their true colours in white light

In the collection are Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadows in:

#24 Smokey Copper – a golden black
#25 Rusted Gold – a blackened olive
#26 Carat Gold – a subdued gold
#27 Oxidized Silver – a greyed purple with red tones
#28 Red Platine – a burgundy-bronze
#29 Rose Titanium – a frosty lilacy pink

Their sparkles in orange light

They all have complex, multi-dimensional sparkles.

For more swatches, as well as comparisons, do visit Beauty Look Book and Rouge Deluxe.

My favourite of the lot:
Oxidized Silver,
which looks like a cerise-mottled graphite

These shadow lovelies are S$41 at DFS Galleria on Scotts. As of yesterday, the eyeshadows have not yet been displayed but I expect that they’ll be more visible soon. Even so, in contrast to their super sparkly and perfectly-pigmented contents, the ETKs occupy an unassuming space on the shelves and aren’t conspicuous. Do look carefully for them!

    I’m sort of glad we don’t get GA here. I’d be broke all the time LOL! That said I have my eye on 24, 25 and 26. I can’t remember if they are LE, do you know? If so I might have to get a CP :P

      Hey PB,

      Luckily for me, most of the colours in this set are warmer than I like, though I appreciate their depth of tone. ;)

      They’re LE, according to the website.

        Oh and let me know re: the CP. If I’m swinging by town, I’d be glad to do it.

    Dear Maggg,

      Hi Eunice,

      The colours are warmer than I prefer, so I only purchased Oxidised Silver. They’re gorgeous, though.

      PS: Am still thinking about #24…heh!

        hi mag,
        thanks for your reply!
        i’m lemming for #27 too, do you think the redness will cause ‘swollen eye’ effect?

          Hi Eunice,

          I think it should be all right – it’s not that red. :)

    oh dear #24,25,27 n 28 is just so lovely!

    hopefully next month when I go travel i get to pick this up at the DFS!
