Armani Eyes to Kill Intense

This past holiday season we were introduced to Eyes to Kill Silk shadows, pots of a new formula of “damp powder,” loosely pressed, highly metallic eyeshadow. Now Armani has unveiled 12 permanent shades. They’ve changed the name slightly (these shadows are now called Eyes to Kill Intense), but they’re still $32 each.

I said there were 12 permanent shades, and you may be wondering what happened to shades 1 and 3. I don’t know why, but the release of these two colors have been delayed. My sales associate said to expect them in June, and I will absolutely swatch the range again when those two become available. Until then (for your reference), shade 1 is Blast of Blue; shade 3 is Purpura.

Lust Red is a blackened red purple. Pulp Fiction is a steely cornflower (blue-purple). Gold Blitz is bronze. Khaki Pulse is olived golden brown. Sweet Fire is peony pink. Champagne is pink champagne. Rock Sand (which I am unable to say without getting The Police song stuck in my head) is white. Airy Jade is slightly blued silver. White Punch is peach. Moonlight is ice blue.

I swatched these shadows with a sponge-tipped applicator, and I definitely went for full metallic volume, but Eyes to Kill Silk/Intense shadows are more versatile than that. Last time national artist Tim Quinn was at our counter doing makeovers, I saw him use his fingers to lightly smudge one of the Eyes to Kill shadows onto a customer’s lid, for a sheer wash of color. Definitely feel free to experiment if you get a chance to play with these.

  • Ade says:

    Is Lust Red not as metallic (more like shimmery/sparkly, not metallic) as the other colors, or is it just because the lighting?

    Ladies, if MAC Beautymarked didn’t do it for you, try the GA#2… it is SO gorgeous! Very multi-dimensional, pigmented, and lasts all day without creasing!
