Haul: Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill in #20, #21 & #23 - The Obsidians & Madre Perla



The new Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill landed in our DFS at Scotts Road last week and I got my hands on them as soon as I heard they were in!


As usual, the intention was never to pick up more than 2 but once you start swatching, it all goes in a different direction. I picked 3 out of the available 4 shades - I skipped #22 Ecailles since it read a bright blue-toned silver on me - which I have enough of in my stash.

Obsidian Black was on my wishlist the moment I saw promotional images!

I know a lot of reviews say that the magic of the blackened teal disappears once it's on the eye but I thought it looked visible enough. It's best applied wet or foiled.



I didn't think I'd like Obsidian Grey as much as I did - it's totally different from #4 Pulp Fiction which is warmer, dirtier in comparison. I wore Obsidian Grey to the Pink Dot event and I really liked it - it's bright and very distinct on the eye and really pops with black eyeliner.



And finally, Madre Perla - it reminds me of the iridesence of dragonfly wings! It is amazingly beautiful in the pan and just as pretty on the skin with the flashes of bright silver white, pink and teal-green but it was almost impossible to capture with the camera. I bought it primarily to layer over other deep shades for an iridescent effect.

Here is an example of such a layering combination - I was playing with the ETKs at DFS and layered Madre Perla over Obsidian Black - I took the shot with my iPhone so it's not the clearest but I hope you can see how it adds dimension to Obsidian Black

I decided to try it on my eye too - this is an eyelook I took for an upcoming post - in this shot, I applied Obsidian Black all over the lid and in the outer crease and just blended a bit of Madre Perla in the centre of the lid for a little "lightbulb" effect. 


I'm really glad our local GA counter at the DFS decided to bring these in - I heard from my chums that these were totally sold out in Taiwan and selling like hotcakes in Hong Kong. I love all my ETKs - I have quite a sizeable stash and I can't pick out one that I could say "hmmm, why did I buy this?". They're great for creating statement eyes in a flash. 


The Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill retail for SGD$41 in Singapore.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
