Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill #3 Purpura

Giorgio Armani 'Eyes To Kill' High Voltage 24-Hour Eyeshadow - (32.00)

My Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill shadows are my go to shadows. When I don't know what to wear or if I'm in a rush I know my ETK shadows will always work great. I currently own about 7 different colors and have only come across one color that I didn't love. I was excited when I saw GA had released a new color that I was seeing hit blogs, and that color was #3 Purpura.

Purpura is a silver-infused purple with gold flecks. In the pan the purple and gold is very dominate, but once on the skin the color is more on the silver metallic side. The color itself can come off a little sheer at times and can even have a very slight grey undertone, but at no means is this a dull color. Purpura can be used in a lot of different ways and can really be paired with almost any color. My favorite is to wear a little gold under my eyes to bring out the gold flecks in the ETK shadow.

In case you're not familiar with the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill shadows let me remind you of some of the basics.

1. The eye shadows can be worn dry or wet.
2. The eye shadows are long lasting.
3. The eye shadow textures are a little like a cream shadow but applies like a dry shadow.

Gorgeous FOTD Diane. The ETK is gorgeous in the pan and when swatched. Very pretty gray/silver, wish I had a nail polish in the shade. ^^

TOO beautiful! :) I love the multicolors! ^_^

Lovely! I was expecting the deep blue flecks to show up more on the eyes but regardless this shadow is one of the prettiest I've seen in a long time. Totally had me sold on the ETK formula :) I will try wearing it with gold on the lower lashline like you suggested, thanks!

I just love that shade on you! Great lippie, too!!

Mandy said...

I expected something more navy or purple, but it gives a lovely "gravender" shade... very pretty!

@Lilladylife, Thank you!

@Kalmo, Thank you! Whenever I see a pretty color I always think "hmph, that would be a pretty eyeshadow" lol you just did it with nail polish.

@Denysia, Thank you!

@Tracey, It's so pretty, it will be a great addition to your collection. =)

@amynaree, First of all, these jokes will never get old! I'm so glad you get me. LOL. Did you order any of the ETK yet? Double points is over!!

@reene, You can never have too many ETK's.

@Rainy Days and Lattes, Yes so pretty. =)

@Lakshmi, Are you loving your Purpura as well? I was scared when it showed up kinda grey, because you know my love/hate relationship with grey tones. But it ended up being very pretty. I'm glad I bought it.

@Jamilla Camel, Thank you hun! You are the queen of FOTD's, so I'm honored. =)

@Mandy, "gravender" is the perfect way to describe it, lol you should copywrite that.

Oh Crap. I wish I had not looked at this. I really do, because now I "need" it. Dang. I wish ETKI wasn't such a wonderful product. This color looks amazing on you!
