The star product of the season is the eye duo palette, which is dressed with an exotic Manta Ray pattern. Inspired by the precious and luxurious materials used in Giorgio Armani fashion accessories, the palettes offer a beautiful selection of color harmonies inspired by nature.

The rich filtered eye tones, presented in a matte Greige compact, give depth and mystery to the eyes with subtle contours and highlights.

A new product introduced in this collection, the Liquid Silk Eye Liner in matte charcoal grey or midnight metallic blue contrast the softer Greige tones with a smooth high precision stroke. The formula, which contains microdispersed waxes and micro-fil™ polymer, boosts the deep intense color and ensures a long-lasting, quick-drying application.

  • n° 2 midnight metallic blue

(Liquid Silk Eye Liners have a suggested retail price of $30)

This season’s must-have Armani lipstick accentuates the natural lip color, keeping the focus on the eyes. The soft plum lipstick contains grey-blue tones and add intensity to the lip without giving a dark contrast, the new alternative to beige. Dressing the lips with a hydrating and silky veil, specific oils allow the shade to reveal intense and radiant color, resulting in a luminous blush on the lips.

  • n° 92

Application Tips:

  1. Use the Greige shade to contour the eye by sweeping the shadow along the crease of the eye. Follow by sweeping the shade under the lower lash line and over the upper lash line. Use charcoal to add intensity.
  2. A second option is to sweet the charcoal shadow over the whole lid and use the Greige to blend. For added intensity, apply midnight blue eyeliner along the upper lid lash line.

The Fall 2009 Collection is available online at www.giorgioarmanibeauty.com and at selected fine department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.
