I can just start this post right off by saying this is an AMAZING product. I first saw this product on Temptalia and was absolutely blown away. This is totally my shade and is exactly what I was looking for in terms of pigment. Obviously, I ordered ASAP.
I was not prepared for how gorgeous this would be. It looks like it would feel like a MAC Paint Pot, but really it feels like baby powder, and just glides on your lids.
From the Nordstrom website:
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.
24-hour color wear, crease-proof, flake-proof, waterproof and sweat-proof, Eyes To Kill Intense Eyeshadows slide on, stay on, but wipe off in an instant. Apply wet or dry with fingers or the Armani large eye contour brush.
Khaki Pulseis an awesome burnished GOLD shade.
I tend toward these types of shades, but I do plan on heading back to Nordstrom and picking up a few of the other Eyes To Kill shadows. If you have an Armani counter, just do me a favor and go check these out. You'd never believe how outstanding the pigment is or how great they glide and feel on your lids.
Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill High Voltage 24-Hour Eye Shadow retails for $32 and is available at fine department stores such as Nordstrom, Saks or Bloomingdales. The price LOOKS high, but you need VERY little to get the pigment you'll want so the pot will last you. You need at least one in your stash. Final answer.
