With temperatures soaring, most women tend to choose a lightweight, rather simple makeup style instead of a highly elaborate one. However, just because it’s summer and we all tend to keep our makeup style as natural as possible, it doesn’t mean that we have to give up striking eyeshadow colors for now. In fact, not taking advantage of the latest Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Intense eyeshadow collection containing 12 incredibly alluring metallic shades would be a real pity.
The luxury brand seems to have put a great amount of thought into the collection not only color wise, but also in terms of technology. Inspired by the volcanos, marble and the rare stones of Italy, the eyeshadow colors combine several pearlized colors for a out-of-this-world effect.
Giorgio Armani himself describes it as being a new approach to eyeshadow that combines quality and new color technologies for extra dimension: “A breakthrough super shine, high voltage colour film that glides on and vibrates around the clock. Powder-free Eyes to Kill Intense blends and layers to create a deep color water resistant, crease proof finish and a spectacular eye.”
In turn, Linda Cantello, creative director for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics declares: “Its fantastic! I have never, in all my years seen an eye shadow product like this… It breaks barriers and introduces a whole new color category…All I can say is wow! Feel it, see it, experience it, wet or dry, you will be convinced!”

The secret that makes these shades so breathtaking is the ColorfilTM hybrid formula which ensures the eye shadows last for about 24 hours by combining color pigments with resistant polymers that ensure that the base color covers the lid, while the second pigment is the element which ensures the much needed drama for a striking impact. There will be no need to worry about retouches, as these revolutionary eyeshadows are crease proof, flake proof, waterproof and even sweat-proof.
The texture of the eye shadows is another aspect that might intrigue makeup lovers. Although they might appear creamy at a first glance, the eyeshadows actually have the thinness of a powder. While the novelties in terms of makeup technologies are definitely exciting and high quality is an unquestionable standard for the brand, the marvelous shades are the ones that ultimately grab our attention the most. Here are some of hues you will be able to choose from:
Lust Red – a marvelous ruby red shade with burgundy accents combined with dark black and blue violet tones
White Punch- a soft neutral toned eyeshadow with subtle peach tones
Airy Jade – a dreamlike jewel shade that is strong, yet discreet
