The Gucci Beauty line is an extensive one but I haven’t yet met a product I didn’t like! Today is my first post regarding any eye product from the brand and if the Amaretto Magnetic Color Shadow Duo is any indication of how amazing the quality is then this will not be my last purchase.
Like the previously reviewed nail polishes and lip products the packaging is black plastic with gold accents. The eye shadow duo comes tucked inside a velveteen pouch embossed with the Gucci logo with the same print on the shadows themselves.
Amaretto is a duo of icy peach and a reddened chocolate brown shadows. Super smooth and velvety… I’d call them pearly luxe. They appear like they’d be over the top frosty, but on the eye it’s a warm combo of perfection that you could wear day and night for any occasion. The pigment is fabulous and I had no issues with blending or fall-out. Over primer these shades lasted all day on the lid.
In the look below I primed the eyes with UDPP and simply applied the chocolate shade all over the lid and through the crease and the icy peach shade slightly above the crease and blended up. I also applied the icy peach shade to the inner corners and the chocolate shade under the lower lash line. The liner is Marc Jacobs Ro(cocoa) Highliner-Gel Crayon and the mascara is Milani Total Lash Cover.
Have you tried any of the Gucci Beauty eye shadows? Which ones are your faves?
