EOTD from the past: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad in Parma

GA ETK Parma EOTD


A little EOTD I did a while ago. With a little wonky eye lining. Lol. I reviewed the quad here. I went with the "obvious" placement of shades. :) Hope you can get the idea of how it looks on the eye. I think it's a great work appropriate quad aside from brown shadows. :)

Edit: I definitely think matte shade changed texture over time. It's much more difficult to work with. :(

Comparison Swatch: Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed vs. Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush in 5

Comparison pics! I like these because it prevents me from buying dupey things. :) 
I'm comparing two good everyday blushes. :) GA 5 and Tarte Exposed.
In natural light
As you can see, exposed is more red. And it pulls even more red on my cheeks. I know it doesn't do this for everyone so as with anything ymmv. :)
I recall a blogger calling GA 5 "violet beige" and I agree with that description. On me, it doesn't swatch or wear as brown as it looks in the pan. :) Super wearable nude blush, and it's one of my favorites.

 GA texture is far superior, the color (without red) is more flattering on me, so I recommend GA 5 between the two. GA 5 is especially good because you don't have to be particularly careful with the application. Nicely sheer. :) But if you prefer a more obvious block of color and don't mind the reddish tinge, Exposed is good too. It was well used when it was one of the two blushes I had (oh gosh...) but I don't have it anymore. I was just not reaching for it over other blushes like GA 5. Hope this helps. :)

 Second Giorgio Armani product review in a row!! It's that season, and I definitely took advantage of the sales and deals for products that rarely go on sale like GA! :) I got this with my VIB coupon at Sephora. Yes, there's Giorgio Armani at Sephora located at Times Square. :D It also has D & G makeup, so check it out if you can.

Hi all! I am finally back. I thought I would ease my way back in by starting with rather simple posts. I also plan on being less wordy from now on. Lol.
