Because One is Never Enough: More From the Giorgio Armani Acqua Collection

You may remember a few weeks ago that I posted about one of the 6 new shades to come out with Giorgio Armani’s mid-summer collection- the very gorgeous Eyes to Kill Intense #28. Well, fast forward a month and I have steadily added to the number that I hauled from this collection; 5 of the 6 shades in total. I know, but I simply cannot resist these. The final color that doesn’t particularly interest me is a light pink, #29. You can find these on the Nordstrom website here and they retail for $32/each. I believe I am at close to 20 of the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill shadows at this point- a true testament to how much I enjoy love am obsessed with them.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #24 Smokey Copper

(P.S.- If you haven’t seen it, do check out the look Temptalia did with this shade. It’s stunning and what I am currently wearing today)

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #25- Rusted Gold

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #26- Carat Gold

(a surprise hit with me- I *adore* this shade, one of my favorites in my collection)

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense #27- Oxidised Silver

I initially wasn’t planning to get this because in some swatches it looked a little too pink/red. But it ends up looking more like a purple-y taupe on me as it did on the other bloggers who convinced me I needed this *shakes angry fist* ;)

Of course it wouldn’t be a good welcome back post if I didn’t do some swatch comparisons!

Clockwise from left (all are Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill): #27, #4, #6, #15, #25, #24, #26 and center is #14.

Swatches L-R (all are Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill): #4, #27, #14, #26, #15, #24, #6, #25

You can see that #4 is much more grey/silver than #27. #14 is a much cooler gold than #26 and #15. #15 is more copper/bronze than #26 and if worn sheerly, #26 makes a beautiful gold. #24 is darker and more dimensional than #6 and #25 is more green and cool toned than both of them.

In all I am extremely happy with the purchases I made from this collection. The shades live up to my expectations in terms of color payoff, wear time and that sparkle factor. If you have never purchased one of these before you are in for a real treat when you do. I haven’t tried a single one that’s made me regret purchasing it. I would start with a shade you feel you will get a lot of use out of (for me that’s been #9- a beautiful peach-champagne color perfect for throwing all over the lid), but of the new shades I don’t know if I could pick just one. I believe thus far my most used is #26, but I think that’s more seasonal related than it is anything else.

Have you tried these before? Is it insane that I wouldn’t mind owning every single shade? >.<  I think I might need to do an overall collection post/my favorites soon!

    They are so beautiful. #25 especially. Love!

    Well, if it’s crazy to want them all, let’s just be crazy together, shall we? I picked up #28 to start with, but I already know I want the rest. These are just so incredible and, yes, they’re pricey, but you need so little to work with that they’ll last you a long time!

  3. I think I just has an eye-gasm lol! These look so beautiful.

  4. These look SO different on you! I would have purchased 27 if it looked like that on me, but unfortunately it’s a bit blah on my skin tone. I really really need 24 now after seeing how pretty it is though!

  5. When I first saw the title of the post, I kept thinking in my head “please tell me she got 27, please tell me she got 27…” :P I have never lusted after any of the ETK shadows before. For some reason they just didn’t appeal to me…until 27 was released. I want that SO freaking bad. I’ve held out for this long, but I don’t think I can anymore

  8. Amy says:

    Aaaagh, you kill me with the gorgeous swatches! I want them all…

  9. Toya says:

    URGH! Again with the slow death here Danielle! LOL I ALSO was trying to resist these, but you always make me want things against my will! haha. I think I’m going to have to order #24…I do love the look of #27 but I think it might be more taupe-y on me than I’d like. Better start saving my pennies now!!! (these are $42 here in Canada if you can believe it!)

  10. Gorgeous gorgeous!!!!!!! #27 is calling out to me.

  11. Jo says:

    Wonderful surprising colours! Armani is the best. I love his designs and personality, always open to cooperate with other companies and active in many spheres. Lately I saw his and Roca’s bathroom creation and I loved it.
