Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill in Lust Red

When I saw this online, I knew I had to have it. There are 17 colors of Giorgio Armani's Eyes To Kill Intense ($32). It is described as a hybrid texture, neither cream nor powder. They claim to wear for 24 hours, be crease proof, flake proof, water proof and sweat proof.

This is not your ordinary black shadow. The red glitter is what makes the color sparkle in the light. I do not recommend using a fluffy brush to apply. I suggest using either your fingers to pat it on or I personally use Alima Pure's #31 Fine Liner/Concealer Brush ($12) damp. Wet, this shadow is a show stopper. Dry- it is too, but wet really brings out the depth. There is minimum fall out, if any. I have sensitive eyes and if the glitter's too chunky, I end up rubbing them all night. I can't even tell that I'm wearing this one.

The formula is truly unique. I don't have anything else like it. I do not get anywhere near 24 hours of wear, but with a primer I find it lasts all day and through the night, which is like 10 hours. It pretty much stays where you want it to. I dislike the $32 price tag, but this is a luxury brand. It doesn't make me want #3 Purpura any less, it just reminds me that I need to save my $.
