Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 Collection

I'm excited to share the items I picked up from the Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 Collection. I know it's technically still Winter, but I love the Spring pops of color - and blues seems to be all the rage on the Spring 2013 Ready To Wear Runway looks. I'm still new to the Giorgio Armani Beauty range, but I'm loving it so far! I picked up both of the Face and Eye Palettes and one of their lipsticks.

- Giorgio Armani Rose Bliss Face and Eye Palette
- Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Lipstick in #101

First, a note about the packaging. Normally, the packaging is in black, like the lipstick below, but the Spring 2013 collection Face and Eye Palettes are in white. The shape is interestingly uneven, but not the best for fitting into your makeup storage :P.










Now, for some swatches! As usual, I photograph in both indoor day lighting (to help show what it might look like when wearing it indoors) and flash lighting (to help show what it would look like in flash photography and to see the finishes better - e.g., matte vs. satin or shimmer finishes).

A quick look at the lipstick, which reminds me of the Burberry Lip Mist for two reasons: 1) the magnetic closure of the lipstick, and 2) the sheer and moisture-rich formula.

Both the Burberry Lip Mist and Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani lipsticks have a magnetic closure.

You can see that the Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani lipstick is also sheer, like the Burberry Lip Mist  but it's even lighter in shade and maybe too light for my pigmented lips. The Burberry lip mist in Field Rose is my "my lips but better" shade. 

Finally, I wanted to share the sample of the Giorgio Armani Face Fabric Foundation in 3.5. I absolutely LOVE it so far. It's on the sheer side, and the silicon in it makes it apply very smoothly and comfortably. I will probably purchase the full product when I run out of the sample.
