Giorgio Armani has done it again with a beautifully classical look for the holidays.

The eyes have a subtle smokey look to them – not too overdone where you’d feel like you were trying too hard, but just right for a beautiful impact.

The eye palette has four eye shadows in a Swarovski Crystal encrusted case. $98  The colors are:

  • Silver white – light grey metallic
  • Golden white – an iridescent golden metallic
  • Golden beige – a shimmering rose beige with golden pearl
  • Silver black – a black with a shimmering silver
  • Body shimmer- on the bottom of the palette is a soft shimmering body powder in a neutral shade

Top off the eye look with Silver Sparkling mascara top coat. $28

The lips on the model are done in Armanisilk lipstick in #56 a deep rich burgundy.  In addition to the collection is an Armanisilk lipstick in a Swarovski encrusted lipstick case.  #77 is a soft rose beige shade that is beautiful. $38

The Midnight Lip Shimmer Gloss is shown in #6.  $26 They call the shade Metallic Mauve, but to me it is much richer and deeper than mauve.   The Armani lip glosses are my absolute favorite glosses and this is no exception.

Finish off this absolutely gorgeous look with the powder puff that is an all-over shimmering body powder.  It’s packaged in the classically Armani black box packaging that could be beautiful as a gift as well. $55

Speaking of gifts – there are some great gift sets that are for the holidays that I will share with you in a very near future date.

As always, I love anything Armani and this is no exception.   The quality is remarkable and the packaging luxurious, so luxurious that you might be tempted to bring out that lipstick with the crystals and apply it after dinner right at the table.  Yes, the cosmetics are more expensive than many lines, but whatever I have purchased from the line, I have continually used and put it at the top of my “must wear” list.
