Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow Review, Photos, Swatches!

Giorgio Armani #24 Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow ($33) is a black with glistening copper and gold. When the colors mix together, it turns into a beautiful dark khaki/olive green. It's a fabulous color, and the type of shade that I gravitate towards, as it flatters my hazel eyes and warm skin really well. It's a bit of a chameleon color, as it shines differently depending on the lighting and angle. Sometimes the color looks like a glistening warm brown and other times it looks like a golden olive. In the sunlight, the golden hues really shine through. It reminds be a bit of MAC Gilt by Association Mineralize Eyeshadow, a shadow I frequently wore in the past.

I know these eyeshadows are old news, as they've been out for a couple of years and I don't hear much about them anymore, but recently, I went through my makeup stash and dug out shade #8 Champagne, and have been using it multiple times a week. Naturally, it sparked my love for this product again, and I wanted more. So, #24 became my newest addition to my makeup bag.

The texture of the eyeshadow is like a very finely milled pressed/compacted pigment. It's incredibly silky and blends effortlessly. My favorite application tool is my fingertip or an old-school sponge applicator, as they both pick up the most product and apply the product in an opaque layer. A small flat brush also works well, such as a small concealer brush. You can also dampen the brush and apply the product wet for an almost metallic finish.

Swatched on my arm the color looks more brown, but on my lids it's a glistening khaki green!

Overall, I really like this shadow and GA Eyes to Kill Eyeshadows in general, and if you're a girl who can't be bothered with using makeup brushes or if you're into the simple one-color eyeshadow looks, these are great. I love shadows that can be applied quickly and look great on their own, and this is one of them!

I also think this is a really pretty shade for the Fall/Winter. I can see it looking great with berry or red lips!

What do you think? Have you ever tried these? Do you like them? Or are you completely over them? 

The Round-Up

Pros:
  • Vibrant, metallic color
  • Can be used wet for more vibrancy and a metallic-like sheen
  • Opaque pigmentation
  • Easy to use
  • Blends easily
  • Really long lasting
  • Lightweight, pretty packaging
Cons:
  • There is a little fall-out due to the soft crumbly texture, so finding the right brush/application tool is necessary - like I mentioned, I like using my fingertips the best! Most eye brushes don't work well with these and will result in a sheer black color on the lids.
