Giorgio Armani Madreperla Eye Palette #2

What a beauty. I love this eye palette from Armani for the holidays. It’s a nice trio of pretty shimmers that is just right for me since I tend to overdose on red lipstick during this time of year. You know the old “rule” of not going deep or dark with both your eye colors and lip color at the same time? I try to follow that so I have been getting a lot of use out of this.

Sparkly champagne/light lavender on the eyes and killer red lips work for me!

This palette is great for everyday looks. I swatched the colors heavily in the pictures but one of my favorite things is to do a sheer wash of color all over my eyelid. After lining my eyes and putting on mascara, I’m done! These colors can be layered and mix beautifully with darker browns and berry colors from my existing stash. I love the texture of Armani shadows. They are smooth and if it wasn’t for the price I’d stock up. Just beautiful.

Check this out at the Armani counter on your next visit. At $59 its pricey but I’m glad I picked one up. There is a holiday face palette that you can take a look at also. I figured this palette was all I needed since I can use everything but the lavender shade as a highlighter on my eyes near my eyebrows and on the top of my cheeks. I use this as a face/eye palette already so why put out another $59?

Rated B (not a fan of the price!)
