Armani Art Deco: Holiday 2009

Armani, holiday, 2009, Art Deco, Crystal Palette, displayArmani’s holiday collection has arrived at counters (but so far without its official display unit). The collection is called Art Deco, and the centerpiece of the collection is the Crystal Palette, a Swarovski-crystal-bedazzled compact containing an eyeshadow quad and a highlighter ($98). Every piece in the collection is new and limited edition.

Armani, holiday, 2009, Art Deco, armanisilkThere are two Armanisilk lipsticks, also in blinged out (ergo limited edition) tubes: 94, which is shimmery brown, and 95, va-va-voom red. On account of the crystals, these are $38 each.

There is also a new lipgloss, Lip Shimmer 61 — it matches Armanisilk 94 perfectly. Since it doesn’t have special packaging, it should be regular price ($26).

And do you remember the Pink Light collection from spring of this year? It contained a loose powder called Pink Light. That same product has essentially been re-released in pressed form: It’s called Sheer Shimmer 5 ($42). I’ll try not to give my usual spiel about the way Armani names their products.

There were no testers, so I couldn’t swatch, but 41 is red and 40 is metallic tan (in case you want to match your polish to your lipstick).

    >Ah, V. It's Armani's use of similar sounding names + numbers for his products — not to mention the fact that he reuses numbers (as does YSL).

    To wit: His lipstick formulas are Shine, Sheer, and Silk (and the lipgloss is Shimmer). For me, that's just a disaster waiting to happen.

    Here's the last time I complained about it: http://karlasugar.blogspot.com/2008/08/armani-shine-brilliant-lipstick.html
