I'm an over-the-top fan of the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows. I've reviewed several here and drooled over many others. Sure, there are less expensive versions of this product, but these have that intricate look to them, and in drool-worthy, unique shades to boot.

For awhile, I've been able to hold off purchasing more of these. But the six released within the Fall 2013Kaleidoscope Collection caught my eye and there was no turning back. All are beautiful yet some are more unique than others. The two I chose are 30 Rose Popillia and 32 Gold Hercule. Both of which, quality wise, are on par with what we're all used to with the ETK Shadows (aka fabulous and long-lasting).

What Nordstrom says about Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Silk Eyeshadow:


This innovative hybrid texture, which is not a powder, nor a cream, acts like a smooth, lasting color film. Each shade is intensified with a second pigment for a multidimensional effect. In just one swoop, create a wet, shimmering smoky eye. Base color covers eyelid, and second pigment adds drama to the contour.

The technology: Color-Fil™, for the first time in an eyeshadow. A new high-resistance bi-polymer enables the formula to perfectly fit the color to the eyelid with cushiony suppleness, for a never-seen comfortable long wear.

30 Rose Papillon is a breathtaking greyed mauve. I've never seen anything similar and it's seemingly selling out very fast. Smooth and easy to apply and blend. If you use it wet it becomes much more vibrant and opaque.

32 Gold Hercule is a golden olive shimmer that almost looks greyed at the edges. It's slightly more opaque than Rose Popillia, and can also be make more vibrant when used wet. I'll be using this with a look later in the week!
